Some of them are the first in their families to go to college. Durant scored 10 points in the third quarter.
Durant's dagger - a pull-up 3-pointer from the left wing - increased Golden State's lead from three points to six points, all but sealing the victory, and was eerily similar to the clutch 3-pointer he drilled in Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals, when he put the Warriors ahead for good with 45 seconds left.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are on the brink of losing the NBA Finals for the second straight year to the Golden State Warriors. "I think as long as he's in office, the communication and things like that it's going to continue to happen", he said. The Warriors also have above-average role players in 2015 Finals MVP Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston.
This year, there's been a toughness to go along with the finesse.
All of these events were downright ideal for the ClevelandCavaliers:Stephen Curry's shooting game was very bad for most of the night, Klay Thompson's wasn't much better, the Cavs led by as many as 13 in the first half and some non-producers from the first two games of these NBA Finals were starting to finally give LeBron James the contributions he's craved. But they're one win away from getting their fingerprints all over another Larry O'Brien Trophy.
"It's definitely a tough loss and we had our chances", James said. "It's impossible to do that, because they're built from a different cloth, and I know that firsthand".
Head to head, the under is 10-3 in the last 13 games overall and the Warriors are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
"That was awesome what he did out there tonight", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said afterward. Yet the cumulative effect on multiple journeys adds up, and we have felt that this year. "I think that was mostly it". It's been our most hard season.
James admitted that the Warriors, who lead the series 3-0, are more talented than the Cavaliers.
"The reality of the situation is that if they lose Friday night, and I strongly suspect they will, when he walks off the court in all likelihood for the last time, all you can do is stand up and applaud the man".
"It's been a insane ride", Curry said.
So this series is just about finished, or at least, that's what the history books say.
