Kevin Durant Loves The NBA Finals

Mark Schwarz asks Kevin Durant a question

Durant started hot in the first quarter and just never cooled down, attacking every mismatch, making every play up to and including a back-breaking 3-pointer in the final minutes that echoed the one he hit in last year's Finals.

His 43-point, 13-rebound, 7-assist performance is flawless for Basketball-Reference Play Index bingo.

Former NBA most valuable player (MVP) Kevin Durant exploded with a career playoff-high of 43 points to lead the Golden State Warriors to a 3-0 advantage over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the best-of-seven finals.

Stephen Curry struggled on Wednesday with 11 points on 3-of-16 shooting, adding six assists and five rebounds with a 1-of-10 mark from downtown.

Durant has once again been at his best on the biggest stage and he has the Warriors just one win away from their second consecutive title. As everyone knows, this will be Cleveland's last stand. He's posted an effective field goal percentage of 51.5 on those closely defended shots, roughly equivalent to Jimmy Butler's effective field goal percentage on all shots, open or defended, during the regular season.

It appears the Golden State Warriors will remain a "super team" for the 2018-2019 season with Kevin Durant returning to a lineup that features four other perennial all stars, according to a report from ESPN. "He'a an assassin.His ability to handle the ball, shoot the ball, make plays at his length, his size, his speed". Curry is 30, Durant is 29, and Draymond Green and Klay are 28.

In case you missed it, Kevin Durant hit a huge three-pointer from way outside in the waning seconds of game three of the National Basketball Association finals last night.
