Kevin Durant Sinks Cavs in Game 3 with Déjà Vu 3-Pointer

NBA Finals 2018 Game 3: Start Time, Live Stream Info, TV Channel For Warriors vs. Cavaliers

He was an elite player before he went to Golden State. And with Golden State already halfway to the four wins needed for another National Basketball Association title, his presence will make this comeback attempt by the Cavaliers in this series only more challenging.

They needed 27 starting lineups in the regular season, and five so far in the playoffs.

They did it the hard way, without question.

James has done almost everything for the Cavs, averaging 40 points, 8.5 rebounds and 10.5 assists through the first two Finals games.

That's a compliment to how terrific those Cavs teams were, and one of the best testaments you can make to LeBron's all-time greatness. "You can't have mistakes. You can't have miscommunication, you can't have flaws ... because they're going to make you pay". He's three rebounds shy of averaging one in this series.

The Cavs led 14-4 with 7:57 left in the first quarter, a complete flip from Game 2 when the Warriors jumped to a 15-6 lead with 8:12 left in the first quarter. And he's still down 3-0. "So I was definitely excited", said the 29-year-old Durant. "That's what championship players do".

Two Pruitt Aides Resign as E.P.A. Ethics Questions Continue
Apparently, Wilcox has had a rough day answering questions about the impending departure of EPA aide Millan Hupp. You have done, the EPA is doing so well, so many approvals and disapprovals...

"I mean, you guys ask me what is the difference between the Warriors - you guys asked me this last year, what was the difference between the Warriors the previous year and this year, and what was my answer?"

Durant has made quite a career out of rising to the occasion.

No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series. Whether pulling up open from 26 feet or shooting with a hand in his face, Durant was unstoppable from distance and appeared intent on throwing his hat in the ring for Finals MVP honors.

This is just what's next.

"I played with guys with that same type of intensity", Durant said, "but his talent and feel is different". But at the same time I knew the game wasn't over.

It may as well have been. "So, it's tough, but it's all part of the competition, which I love and which I continue to lace them up [for] every night".

Netanyahu to Macron: Nuclear deal will die, need to tackle Iran's 'aggression'
Major worldwide companies are already beginning to distance themselves from Iran in fear of United States sanctions. In addition to the nuclear deal, the prime minister also raised the subject of pushing Iranian forces out of Syria.

Cavaliers fans waited outside the Warriors' team hotel after the loss apparently to heckle the players. "And he's been that for them a number of times". He made 7-of-11 field goal attempts.

But the biggest shot of the evening came with under a minute left.

But Durant finished it off.

"That was incredible what he did out there", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "We just try to do whatever it takes to get the W. Run the right plays", he reflected.

A glaring omission from that short list is of course, Durant's Finals opponent this year LeBron James. "That was fantastic what he did".
