Durant scores 43 to lead Warriors over Cavs in Game 3

LeBron's former GM David Griffin thinks Sixers have 'a leg up'

Durant had 43 points, seven assists and 13 rebounds as the Golden State Warriors moved within one win of repeating as National Basketball Association champions with a 110-102 win. They've proven they can win on someone else's floor, no matter if it's through adversity as people may call it, like when they were going through the Rockets series or whatever the case may be. "But we've got to come out and got to play 48 minutes", James added.

James' statline was nearly as impressive as he finished with a 33-point, 11-assist, 10-rebound triple double but his outside shot (1/6 threes) wasn't as reliable as other games this postseason.

All-Star Kevin Love said Tuesday the Cavaliers are focusing on communication on defense to spark their offense and get more punch to stand up to the Warriors.

Kevin Durant's 43 points were the third most scored by a Warriors' player in an NBA Finals game.

As coach Tyronn Lue had hoped, Cleveland was more physical and won several 50-50 balls while outrebounding and outworking the Warriors, who spent much of the first half barking about the officiating. But third quarters have kind of been our Achilles heel all year.

Of course, only a handful of teams have a legitimate shot at landing the best player in the world. "We're used to the dynamic of being ahead in a series and then having everything shift when you go on the road - especially when you play Cleveland".

The clip shows the Cavaliers in the time between J.R. Smith's baffling blunder at the end of regulation and the start of overtime, depicting the team's bench as heartbroken and stunned as they realize their opportunity to steal Game 1 had likely slipped away.

He said Gowdy "worked in lockstep" with other GOP lawmakers to undermine special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation of the president.

They were asking for trouble.

"We've been here before and that's the biggest thing", Kerr said. They're 20-9 when he makes at least three 3-pointers. That's what this team does.

Durant scored nine points in a 15-8 run to close the second quarter that pulled Golden State within 58-52 at half-time after trailing by as many as 13 points. This series is proving - just as their slugfests against the Indiana Pacers and Celtics in the Eastern Conference playoffs did - that the Cavaliers need more around him. Teams that have fallen behind 3-0 in the playoffs are 0-131.

With the 33-year-old's 10th rebound against the Golden State Warriors in game three on Wednesday, James tallied the 10th triple double of his career in the NBA Finals - the most of all-time.

"That margin for error is so little, so thin against them, I think in some cases you have to be ideal", Love said. Even with their best defensive option against James, Andre Iguodala, sitting on the sideline in street clothes, the Warriors still feature four all-stars - including two former MVPs and the reigning defensive player of the year.

Another "Summer of LeBron" could start as early as Friday night.
