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

As a team, the Cavaliers shot just 43 percent from the field and nine of 31 from the three-point line which was good enough to keep them in the game due to their defense, but they just had no answer for Kevin Durant who scorched them for a game-high 43 points on 15 of 23 shooting.

But there was a silver lining for those fans after Golden State took a commanding 3-0 lead in the series.

"It's definitely a tough loss and we had our chances", James said. Durant kept the Warriors in a game they never controlled until the last few suspenseful minutes. "I think as long as he's in office, the communication and things like that it's going to continue to happen", he said. Kevin Durant. You've got two guys with MVPs on their team. Green can turn in a triple-double on any given night and is one of the best defenders in the league.

James can be a free agent, and there's a real sense around the National Basketball Association that this summer - just like in 2010, when he left for Miami - could be packing up and leaving his native northeast OH once again. "How do you put together a group of talent but also a group of minds to be able to compete with Golden State, to be able to compete for a championship?" In Game 1, George Hill missed a free throw with the score tied and J.R. Smith grabbed the offensive rebound and dribbled out the clock in regulation.

LeBron said: "That's why they retooled this team, went out and got KD ... if one of them has a bad game they have three or four guys who can pick up the load".

Curry scored 33 points and was 9-of-17 on 3-point attempts in Golden State's 122-103 victory in Game 2. Kevin Durant drained six treys en route to 43 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists but he really didn't get much support from his teammates. One game, Curry goes nuts and sprays threes. The Warriors haven't been at their absolute best in this series but they proved they can still win even if Curry shoots one of 10 from the three-point line.

Since the Cavaliers haven't been able to play the ideal game against Golden State, this summer James could try to find and help assemble the flawless team.

"We have a lot of talent as well", James noted.

As they've done throughout the playoffs, the Warriors surged in the third quarter, outscoring the Cavaliers 31-23 to take an 83-81 lead into the fourth quarter.
