Kevin Durant Stares Down Hecklers Who Said His Alma Mater Was 'Butt'


Durant's clutch shot cemented Golden State's 110-102 victory and put them up 3-0 in the NBA Finals with Game 4 to be played in Cleveland. But after missing his first nine three-point attempts, Curry hit his first three-pointer when the Warriors needed it most - a trey with the Warriors clinging to a 98-97 lead with 2 minutes 38 seconds left.

"That was unbelievable what he did out there tonight", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. Last year, we were up two, and he pulled up pretty much right at the 3-point line and I got a great contest, but he made it.

"I thought we played a good first half", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said.

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35) shoots the ball against Cleveland Cavaliers guard George Hill (3) during the third quarter in game three of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena.

Wednesday night's Game 3 of the NBA Finals was the 100th playoff game of Draymond Green's tenure with Golden State.

James, meanwhile, had 33 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds.

The television ratings through the first three games of this year's NBA Finals continue a positive trend for basketball locally.

For the second straight year against the Cavaliers, Kevin Durant took, and made, that shot. That one might have been the most painful of all - Game 3 of the East semis this year, when the Raptors fought back to tie the game late and then watched as LeBron hit a running, one-legged floater off the glass to basically rip the Raptors' hearts out and probably cost their coach his job. "He's a scorer. You know, he's an assassin, and that was one of those assassin plays right there".

Durant went to the University of Texas, and you could call the school "butt", since in 2017, it came in at 9th in the BIG 12.

But a lot of the angst won't be about the Warriors, it will be about James. But he's not going anywhere, even mentally, until this series is over.

But unlike Durant, Smith and Love didn't keep it going. "He would have been very good for us in the post-season", James said. "We have another opportunity on Friday to win on our home extend the series".

And now, Taco Bell fans can get their free tacos next week. "And if we can do that, guys can look in the mirror and live with themselves". Instead, the four-time MVP reflected on the enormous talent that he and his teammates have had to play against in the last four NBA Finals series.

When it was James and Irving threading the needle with epic performances in Games 5-7 to lead the Cavs back from a 3-1 deficit in 2016, there were no such mistakes. "We still have to have that enthusiasm, trust and belief that we can get this thing done".
