Kevin Durant Dominates as Warriors Take 3-0 Lead in NBA Finals

The NBA Finals are all but over after the defending champion Golden State Warriors once again overcame the Cleveland Cavaliers to take the best-of-seven series to 3-0. The Warriors earned a 110-102 victory Wednesday, led by Kevin Durant’s playoff-career high of 43 points, which helped to overcome a 13-point first-half deficit and close in on their third NBA title in four seasons. “That was amazing what [Durant] did out there tonight,” Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr told reporters. “Some of those shots, I don’t think anybody in the world can hit those but him. He was incredible.” The Cavs, who pushed the Warriors all the way with 33 points from LeBron James, now face the uphill task of becoming the first NBA team to come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series.
