Warriors 1 Win Away From Being Crowned Champions


The 2017 NBA Finals was close to being, interesting, then Kevin Durant happened. The Warriors battled back in the final quarter of game 3 to complete an 118-113 triumphant win over the Cavaliers to take a 3-0 lead in the finals and enhance their 2017 playoff record to a flawless 15-0.

Kevin Durant played exceptionally well in the fourth quarter, where he scored seven points in the last three minutes for the Warriors, finishing with 31 for the night. He also helped defensively as well as he managed to get eight rebounds and four assists. Klay Thompson scored 30 points on 6-of-11 shooting from 3-point range, while Stephen Curry completed with 26 points, 13 rebounds and six assists.

The Cavaliers required more effort and tenacity from players not named LeBron James in Games 1 and 2 of the NBA Finals. The Cavaliers finally got some of those answers Wednesday night, and even in the Cavs’ most aggregate execution of the course of action, it wasn’t adequate.

James was exciting, and this time it showed up he would have the basic help for a triumph victory and avoid being down 3-0. Kyrie Irving finished with 38 points pirouetting into the way and finishing with rich layups at the edge. Kevin Love (1-of-9 FG) didn’t have his shooting touch for a major portion of the night, but yet he combated fearlessly on the glass (both offensively and defensively.) Likewise, the key role players for the Cavs contributed greatly, with J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver, at last, offering the outside shooting Cleveland distressfully required in Golden State.

But being the Golden State Warriors, and having arguably the best team of all time, will always find a way to ruin the hearts of their opponent. The Warriors finished the game on an 11-0 run, with Durant nailing the go-ahead 3-pointer. It was at that point, the feeling was known throughout the NBA world that the Warriors are looking for the sweep.

They say it’s not over until the fat lady sings, and the Cavaliers certainly should have hope here. In order for them to win the series, they would have to win the remainder of the games. But JR did predict Cavs in 7…

Game 4 will tip off Friday in Cleveland where the Cavs will hope to avoid a sweep.
