The Warriors are up 3-0 after a 110-102 win in Cleveland.
And Kevin Durant was otherworldly. The eternally Texas-repping sharpshooter scored 43 points, collected 13 rebounds and had 7 assists. On 15 of 23 shooting. Including 6 of 9 from the three point line. The Warriors put the game on KD’s back and he made big shot after big shot (when he wasn’t threading slick passes to cutting teammates) on the road until it became clear that he’d allow only one result: a Warrior win.
It looked like this:

After an uncharacteristic, disappointing Game 1 where Durant took some inadvisable shots and finished 8 of 22 from the field, he has been 25 of 37 from the field and averaged 34.5 ppg, 11 rebounds and 7 assists. Including 8 of 12 from the three point line.
Kevin Durant has scored 25+ points in every NBA Finals game in his career.
