Durant says he's returning to Warriors

Durant says he's returning to Warriors

Kevin Durant refused to label his match-winning game-three performance for the Golden State Warriors as his career's "defining moment", as he plans to create more. They won a title together over the Warriors in 2016, but that was before Golden State landed Durant.

"In order to win you've got to have talent, but you've got to be very cerebral too", James said, per Dave McMenamin of ESPN. One could imagine a world where James slots in right next to Green on the floor, and dips into his usage both as a playmaker and a defensive force flying all over the court. I mean, that's what he does.

Just when it seemed as if the Cavaliers might win their first game of the 2018 NBA Finals, Durant hit a 3-point dagger from the wing for the second year in a row, prompting Warriors teammate Draymond Green to roar and silencing a deafening crowd at Quicken Loans Arena. Klay Thompson scored just 10 points on four of 11 shooting while Stephen Curry chipped in with just 11 points on three of 16 shooting.

LeBron said: "That's why they retooled this team, went out and got KD ... if one of them has a bad game they have three or four guys who can pick up the load".

Looking at the betting trends, the Cavaliers are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Friday games.

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors are now just one win away from another NBA Championship after outlasting the Cavaliers in their own building. "But you definitely tip your hat".

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

President Donald Trump can save himself the effort of inviting the winning National Basketball Association team to the White House this summer, according to LeBron James. "He's a scorer. You know, he's an assassin, and that was one of those assassin plays right there".

The Cavaliers led Game 3 Wednesday by 13 in the second quarter.

"That was incredible what he did out there tonight", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of Durant postgame. The sweep is now in play, something that hasn't happened since 2007 when, coincidently, LeBron James dragged a similarly nondescript group to the Finals - only to meet a quick doom against Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, all in their prime.
