JR held off from tweeting 'Cavs in 7' after Game 3 loss

JR held off from tweeting 'Cavs in 7' after Game 3 loss

Golden State, trying to win the Larry O'Brien Trophy for the third time in four years, leads the best-of-seven series, 3-0.

Especially in this series, Iguodala should be a big help in terms of trying to slow down LeBron James, who has averaged 40 points in the first two games.

Cleveland held an early 10-point lead in Game 3, partly thanks to LeBron James' thunderous alley-oop to himself. Game 4 is Friday night.

Durant, the 2017 Finals MVP, faced criticism during the Western Conference Finals for his preference to shoot rather than pass.

In the game's final stage, Golden State was better, leaving James to compare his opponent to a gold standard in a different sport. "The one he made (Wednesday) was about four or five feet behind the one he made a year ago".

Spectators and commentators couldn't help but notice how similar the shot was to the one Durant made previous year in Game 3 of the Finals.

Durant finished with 43 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists and pretty much put to rest any question about the 2018 Finals MVP. "Some of those shots, I don't think anybody in the world but him could have made those shots".

"That was awesome what he did out there", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

Liverpool are looking to clinch the £60 million (€68m/$80m) signing of Nabil Fekir before he heads off to the World Cup with France.

Speaking of KD, he had arguably the best game of his career, dropping 43 points on 15-of-23 shooting along with 13 rebounds and seven assists, including a dagger from nearly the exact same spot as the one he hit in Game 3 previous year.

"I mean, you guys ask me what is the difference between the Warriors - you guys asked me this last year, what was the difference between the Warriors the previous year and this year, and what was my answer? Kevin Durant was my answer", James said.

The shot gave the Warriors a six-point lead and capped off an unbelievable night for the superstar.

The Cavs had every chance to win Game 1, but couldn't close the deal after a controversial overturned call, a missed free throw by George Hill, and a historic blunder by J.R. Smith. He has taken Cleveland to the NBA Finals now five times, and this now looks certain to be his fourth loss in those.

Durant had 24 points and eight rebounds in the first half while the Warriors' other four starters made a combined 5-of-20 from the floor for only 13 first-half points and Cleveland enjoyed a 28-16 first-half rebounding edge. So, I can't - I don't really know. Durant is now nearing the chance to secure two National Basketball Association titles and Finals MVP awards over James while the two are playing at the peak of their respective games. "I don't know how many minutes he'd be able to play".

I selfishly was hoping Durant would leave.

"We have a lot of talent as well".
