Kevin Durant Splashes Away For The Warriors Win

Warriors Take 3-0 Finals Lead

Wednesday the Golden State Warriors showed the world that even LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers cannot handle their firepower. The Warriors, led by Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant, pulled off heartbreaking win over the Cavaliers 118-113

Durant, who finished the game with 31 points, eight rebounds and four assists, put in work in the fourth quarter of the contest according to ESPN.

Now throughout the game each team were putting on their best efforts. They allowed multiple lead changes all game. Then, unlike the first two games, the Cavs kept the game close after the third quarter.

The quarter ended in an 89-94 score with Cleveland in the lead. They were led by the amazing shot making of guard, Kyrie Irving. He finished the game with 12 points in the third and 38 for the game.

But even with his display they could not get the W. Then even James had a great night. He finished with 39 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. James’s spectacular play with a near triple-double put shine his way.

But at the end of the game, Durant turned his shine into shame. Durant pursued Golden State to an 11-0 run to end the game. He even hit back-to-back daggers from three to take the lead. One included a facial on James himself.

Then Durant expressed his thoughts in Associated Press.

“All I was looking at was the bottom of the net,” Durant said. “I saw he (James) was playing his heels behind the 3-point line. I’ve been working on that shot my whole life. To see that go in, that was liberating, man. We’ve got one more to go.”.

Now, even though James kept braking record after record he also attributed to one of the Warriors. Their win brings them to 15-0 in the playoffs. That’s one game away from a perfect season.

“It’s the most firepower I’ve played in my career,” said James, who played all but two minutes. “I’ve played against some great teams, but I don’t think no team has had this type of firepower.”

The Warriors will now look to the next game to close them out and end the misery.

“It’s the most firepower I’ve played in my career,” said James, who played all but two minutes. “I’ve played against some great teams, but I don’t think no team has had this type of firepower.”
