Durant, however, had 24 points in the opening two quarters, including a deep 3 on Golden State's final possession of the half, and the Cavaliers took a 58-52 lead into the intermission.
"That was awesome what he did out there tonight", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.
"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".
The Dubs once again managed to overcome a sensational performance by LeBronJames as he failed in his attempt to will his team to a win.
The Cavs had a near-perfect start and built a 16-4 lead during a wild stretch that saw James whip the home crowd into a frenzy when he threw an alley-opp pass to himself off the backboard.
Texas man bitten by severed rattlesnake head
He was eventually airlifted to Christus Spohn Shoreline Hospital, she said. "He had to rip the snake's head off", Jennifer said". The bite came just a week after a kayaker in SC was hospitalized after a rattlesnake attacked him after falling from a tree.
"You can't have mistakes, they're not going to beat themselves", he continued. In Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night in Cleveland, Durant made his case - and it was a convincing one. Cleveland won their first NBA Finals game at Quicken Loans Arena two years ago.
Last year Golden State, the defending champions, were also 3-0 up against the Cavaliers, and although they lost game four they secured the title in game five.
After burying a 3-pointer on the left wing in the final minute of Game 3 here last year to give Golden State a 3-0 lead, Durant stepped into almost the exact same spot and made another 3 to do it again this year.
No other Warriors player scored over 11 points. "I knew their minds".
"Going into this season, I don't think anybody could have guessed or predicted the ups and downs and the roller coaster we've been on", Curry said Thursday as the Warriors prepped for the possible clincher. He thought Curry's lone 3-pointer in 10 tries - one that put the Warriors up by four with 2:38 remaining - carried more weight, and he might have been right. "He raised up and made a big shot for them, kind of like he did past year". "He's one of the smartest players in the league".
"I twisted it pretty good, but I'll be in the lineup on Friday", James said, per ESPN's Dave McMenamin. He knows any team he's on can get to a Finals, or, if he's out West, will go until they meet the Warriors in the playoffs.
