Kevin Durant's presence puts Cavs in a near-impossible situation against Warriors

LeBron James NBA 2K LeBron James: Winner of NBA finals won’t be going to the White House

The difference Wednesday was the Warriors chipped away at the Cavaliers' lead and tied the score 26-26 on a pull-up jumper by Kevin Durant with 32.6 seconds left in the opening quarter.

James is averaging 40.0 points, 10.5 assists and 8.5 rebounds per game in the Finals.

They overcame an 11-point deficit in Game 1 of the NBA Finals against Cleveland, and rallied from 13 points down to beat the Cavaliers in Game 3 on Wednesday.

"That was awesome what he did out there tonight", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of Durant postgame. "We've had an opportunity to win two of these games in this three-game series so far, and we haven't come up with it", James said. "They're going to make runs". The Warriors steamrolled the Cavaliers in last year's Finals in five games and can sweep Cleveland in Game 4 Friday. Durant scored 10 points in the third quarter.

The Warriors had expected what it saw from Cavs talisman LeBron James (33 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds) and Kevin Love (20 points 13 rebounds).

"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. I'm just really trying to come in and be the best team-mate, player I can be until this thing is over.

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

The North also demands the repatriation of a dozen North Korean restaurant workers, who came to the South in 2016 via China. Kim Yong-chol is a close aide of Kim Jong-un and is vice chairman of the ruling Workers Party's central committee.

He returned to the Cavaliers in 2014 vowing to end Cleveland's sports title drought, something he did by beating the Warriors in 2016 after 52 seasons since the 1964 NFL Browns won a title.

One of the themes of these NBA Finals has been that LeBron James hasn't gotten enough help from his teammates. "I've just got to stay locked in".

Game 3 went down as a loss, and now the Cavaliers find themselves in the hole from which no National Basketball Association team has ever escaped.

He can put the Warriors in position for a huge road win, and Curry - the best shooter in the world - can suddenly wake up, make a layup to give the Warriors a 98-97 lead with 2:58 remaining and follow with a 31-foot 3-pointer to increase the advantage to four. The room for error versus a team like this is slim to none.

"And I thought Durant hurt us with his one-on-one, getting to the free-throw line a little bit".
