Kevin Durant's presence puts Cavs in a near-impossible situation against Warriors

Kevin Durant names his top two players ever and neither of them are LeBron James

All of these events were downright ideal for the Cleveland Cavaliers: Stephen Curry's shooting game was very bad for most of the night, Klay Thompson's wasn't much better, the Cavs led by as many as 13 in the first half and some non-producers from the first two games of these NBA Finals were starting to finally give LeBron James the contributions he's craved.

The Warriors had expected what it saw from Cavs talisman LeBron James (33 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds) and Kevin Love (20 points 13 rebounds).

Here are all the Golden State vs Cleveland Game 3 NBA Finals details including the live stream and start time.

"I told him it reminded me a little bit of Tim Duncan and his time with the Spurs", Warriors coach Steve Kerr told Bay Area News Group.

"Just for him, just as a person, to be healthy and be able to play in The Finals now that we're here, I think that would mean a lot to him and give us an emotional boost as well".

As they've done throughout the playoffs, the Warriors surged in the third quarter, outscoring the Cavaliers 31-23 to take an 83-81 lead into the fourth quarter.

Durant is coming off a brilliant performance in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night.

Durant is expecting the Cavaliers to come out swinging early in the game once again in Game 4.

And on a night where Stephen Curry couldn't shoot and Klay Thompson wasn't much better, Durant put the Golden State Warriors on his slender shoulders and carried them to the brink of becoming back-to-back National Basketball Association champions for the first time. When the Warriors needed a shot late on with the Cavaliers closing in, Durant drained a three-pointer to extend the lead to 106-100 50 seconds left.

"It's definitely a tough loss and we had our chances", James said.

The Autopilot's cruise control system, which is created to match the speed of a slower vehicle ahead of it, was set at 120 km/h. Huang was still belted into the driver's seat but bystanders rescued him from the vehicle before it was consumed by flames.


Despite the magnitude of his 3-pointer, Durant acted like he had been there before, bypassing a celebration for a stone face.

Last year, he also overtook the Chicago Bulls legend and became the NBA's leader in postseason points.

And when the 2017 NBA Finals MVP was further pressed for an answer on whether he would be okay with that, he said: "I'm not saying that".

"It was nearly like I was cussing him out, but I was so happy", Green said. "He's an assassin, and that was one of those assassin plays". After lighting up Cleveland in the first two games, Curry shot 3 for 16 from the floor, scoring only 11 points. "I knew their minds. We just try to do whatever it takes to get the W. Run the right plays", he reflected.

Cavaliers let chances slip away _ again _ in NBA Finals
Even if Iguodala doesn't return on Wednesday, the Warriors could use their next-best-thing lineup more than they have thus far. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 33.3 percent from beyond the arc and 75.6 percent from the free throw line.
