Kevin Durant rewards Stephen Curry’s ‘childlike approach to the game’

  • NBA Finals: Stephen Curry breaks 3-pointers record in Game Two as Warriors beat Cavaliers to take 2-0 lead

A late Kevin Durant triple has led the Golden State Warriors to a thrilling Game 3 win in the NBA Finals over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Warriors center JaVale McGee also stops by the show, talking about how being part of Golden State has changed him as both a player and a person.

Even Curry's high-volume, low-efficiency game alone would sink most teams.

Cleveland's perimeter defense wasn't bad, although they gave Golden State plenty of easy buckets inside early in the game.

Curry and his fellow Splash Bro, Klay Thompson, are now tied for the most three-pointers made in a single postseason at 98, a record that will likely stand for a very long time (unless one of the two breaks it themselves). It began when Curry hoisted a corner 3-pointer as time expired in the third quarter. In 2016, they had the NBA's best-ever season at 73-9 but fell one win shy of a crown.

Kevin Love scored 22 points and grabbed 10 boards, but he was just 7-18 from the field. When Curry is on, Golden State is just about unstoppable.

"He's doing better. He played yesterday some one-on-one, did some full-court drills".

The Warriors are trying to join Bill Russell's Celtics, the Bulls led by Michael Jordan and the Lakers" trio of title runs fueled by George Mikan in the 1950s, Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in the "80s, and Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant almost 20 years ago as the only franchises in National Basketball Association history to capture three championships in four years. Just to put a dagger in them like that, that was a huge shot. This needs to happen much more often, rather than him backing down a smaller player, missing a turnaround shot and hoping for a foul. The more catch-and-shoot opportunities Hill gets behind the three-point line the better.

Tristan Thompson has to try and tip in a few on the offensive boards. Learn from Boston, both this year and six years ago. For a player on the floor to rebound, this is unacceptable.

J.R is once again J.R.

.

James led the Cavaliers with 33 points.

Everything is more relaxed and familiar at home for James and his teammates, who were counting on a return to their own noisy building, where they play better and shoot better, to get them back into the series.

But the biggest shot of the evening came with under a minute left. "They're not going to beat themselves". Ante Zizic had two points in three minutes; Cedi Osman had two points and a rebound in four minutes; Jose Calderon had four points, two rebounds, and an assist; and a Rodney Hood sighting was made, as the shooting guard had two points, a rebound, and an assist. He also had nine rebounds and seven assists.

LeBron James and the entire Cleveland Cavaliers team are passing through hard times, and they are failing to sail their boat. Draymond Green is their emotional leader and oh, there is that guy named Kevin Durant too.

Neither team led by more than three points in the fourth quarter until Stephen Curry drained a 3-pointer with 2:38 remaining for a 101-97 Warriors edge. This close to another championship, the last thing Golden State needs is to become frayed or fractured by the kind of force they anticipate from James; having the 2015 NBA Finals MVP's steadying influence back on the court would be a welcome addition in what can be a raucous environment.

Perkins is yet to appear in a playoff game for the Cavs this season but the 33-year-old has still been in the thick of the action.
