Kevin Durant's shot, 'death stare' all but finish off Cleveland Cavaliers

LeBron James: Winner of NBA finals won’t be going to the White House

He has stepped up his play in the playoffs, averaging 29.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 4.5 assists as Golden State is one win away from its third NBA Finals championship in four years.

But there was a silver lining for those fans after Golden State took a commanding 3-0 lead in the series. According to Jason Lloyd of The Athletic, that player went as far as to say he believed the Cavs would be up 3-0 if Irving was still around.

"The one he made tonight was 4 or 5 feet behind the one he made past year", Cavaliers forward LeBron James said. Instead, the four-time MVP reflected on the enormous talent that he and his teammates have had to play against in the last four NBA Finals series.

The Warriors steamrolled the Cavaliers in last year's Finals in five games and can sweep Cleveland in Game 4 Friday.

"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. "Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!" Kevin Durant. You've got two guys with MVPs on their team. Klay Thompson is good enough to be the main guy on a team and Draymond Green is an elite defender and considered one of the smartest players.

He grinned wide and raised his eyebrows in awe at the magical sight, while Golden State Warriors players looked unimpressed beside him.

Trump wrote that Iger never called him to apologize for "the disgusting statements" that have been said about him on ABC. The latter statement was accompanied by an old tweet by Barr.

As the first quarter began to heat up, Bron found himself guarded by Golden State's JaVale McGee at the top of the key. The Cavs are "this close" to holding a 2-1 lead in this series.

Durant, though, has the clearest path to the MVP trophy after a virtuoso 43-point performance in Game 3.

They overcame deficits of 17 and 15 points against Houston in the final two games of the Western Conference finals, the second of those on the Rockets' home floor.

"We have a lot of talent as well".

"When you make mistakes they make you pay, because they're already more talented than you are but they also have the minds behind it, too, and they also have the championship DNA".

They went 67-15 on the way to the National Basketball Association title in 2015, matched that record on the way to another title last season and went 73-9 - the best record in league history - in 2016 only to fall short in the finals against Cleveland.
