LeBron James: Everyone Knew Kevin Durant Was Going to Be Great…Except Portland

LeBron James: Everyone Knew Kevin Durant Was Going to Be Great…Except Portland

Jun 6, 2018; Cleveland, OH, USA; Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) shoots the ball against Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (30) during the second quarter in game three of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena.

James went to the line with 4 minutes, 24 seconds to play and sank both shots, yet the lead was short-lived as Durant made another shot on the other end.

James had 33 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds for Cleveland, but his Cavaliers will have to become the first team to climb out of a 3-0 hole in the NBA Finals.

"It's a big difference", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said when asked to compare the pre- and post-Durant Warriors. That set up a back-and-forth before the dramatic final three minutes, and the Cavs cut the deficit to 101-100 after a deep 3-pointer from LeBron James.

"You can't have mistakes, they're not going to beat themselves", he continued. Iguodala last played May 20 in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Rockets.

Game 4 is scheduled to tip at 9:00pm ET.

Durant was devastating in game three of the Finals on Wednesday, the Warriors star pouring in 43 points and recording 13 rebounds to inspire a 110-102 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday.

The Cavaliers have lost the first two games, but James' wardrobe didn't hurt his performance. Game 3 of this series will probably be remembered by how the Cavaliers, even with Curry missing 13 of his first 14 shots, dominated stretches of the first half and went into the locker room only up by six.

"There's going to be nights like this for all of them".

"I was definitely excited", said Durant, who tends to try and keep emotions to himself.

After winning last year's National Basketball Association title, Business Insider reports that the 29-year-old signed a two-year contract with the team that pays him $25 million for this 2017-2018 season.

"It's nearly like playing the Patriots", Cleveland superstar LeBron James said Wednesday night. "He's a scorer. You know, he's an assassin, and that was one of those assassin plays right there". If the Rockets had Chris Paul for Game 6 or Game 7 of that series, if Paul's hamstring hadn't betrayed him at the worst possible time, then the Warriors could very well be on vacation right now. After lighting up Cleveland in the first two games, Curry shot 3 for 16 from the floor, scoring only 11 points. Past year we were up 2, and he pulled up pretty much right at the three-point line and got a great contest, but he made it.
