Warriors within reach of sweep: Who will be NBA Finals MVP?

Late in the game, Durant called for the ball on numerous occasions, clearly looking to seal the win.

By Golden State standards, this season was downright bumpy.

"The same wing, different location, but you definitely tip your hat", James said. They were both pull-up 3-pointers that served as daggers. They needed to win a Game 7 on the road to reach the NBA Finals, and they could have easily lost two of the first three games of this series. "I'm not surprised. I mean, no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway". Kevin Love had 20 points and 13 rebounds and J.R. Smith finished with 13 points, finally making some shots.

Kevin Durant's 3-pointer to extend a Warriors three-point lead to six in the final minute not only secured an eventual 110-102 victory for Golden State, but also free food. Durant scored 24 points in the first half on 7-of-10 shooting, including 3-of-4 from 3-point range. "They just think that you go out, and, 'Oh, LeBron, you're bigger and faster and stronger than everybody, you should drive every single time and you should dunk every single play and you should never get exhausted, never.' Like it's a video game and you went on the options and you turned down fatigue all the way to zero and injuries all the way down to zero".

Durant won it past year by averaging 35.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 5.4 assists.

If you're a fan of the Cleveland Cavaliers, we know you'll be cheering them on as they attempt to avenge last year's finals loss - and having the right team gear is a crucial.

"It wasn't just the number of points", Golden State coach Steve Kerr said.

While LeBron James and company have put up an honorable fight through three games, the Warriors' talent level has simply proven too high for a Cavs team that is in noticeable need of additional high-level playmakers. The Cavs are "this close" to holding a 2-1 lead in this series.

"Don't get me wrong, every time I make a shot in the National Basketball Association, I get excited", he said. "He's a scorer. You know, he's an assassin, and that was one of those assassin plays right there".

Instead, Cleveland is only left to wonder if James is a game from leaving.
