LeBron said everyone knew Durant would be great 'except Portland'

LeBron said everyone knew Durant would be great 'except Portland'

Kevin Durant has become something of an antihero of sorts, this after the former Oklahoma City Thunder forward bolted for the greener pastures of the Golden State Warriors en route to his first National Basketball Association championship.

These numbers are every bit as impressive as the 35.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 5.4 assists and 50/40/90 shooting splits, which earned him the NBA Finals MVP previous year.

It can be recalled that Curry had 33 points, eight assists, and seven rebounds in Game 2 last Sunday at the Oracle Arena.

Trailing 0-2 from the first two games of the NBA Finals, the Cavs returned home hoping to claw their way back into the series.




All-Star shooter Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Jordan Bell, and JaVale McGee each had 10 points for the Warriors who are looking to win its sixth championship. The Warriors team passing numbers are up from their Western Conference Finals matchup against the Houston Rockets and Durant's 11.3 potential assists per game are a big increase from both last round and his regular season numbers.

In the checkered history of the league, no team has ever come back from a 0-3 deficit. I don't want to downplay anything and say like this is the end of the road.

"I'm planning on staying with the Warriors, and we'll figure the rest out", Durant said. LeBron James and company had to watch as the Warriors claimed their third title in four years - on Cleveland's home court. It was the second-most points ever scored in a Finals game on less than 25 shots from the field.

The Cavaliers took a 13-point lead in the second quarter but their offense slowed down in the second half where the Warriors outscored them 58-44.
