LeBron alley-oops slam dunk off backboard in NBA Finals

  • LeBron James NBA 2K

When Durant is that efficient from the floor - he shot 15-of-23 overall and 6-of-9 from 3-point range - Golden State is nearly unbeatable.

The defending champion Golden State Warriors overcame a hot start by the Cleveland Cavaliers to earn a 110-102 victory on Wednesday and take a 3-0 stranglehold on the best-of-seven NBA Finals.

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.

James set an early tone barely two minutes into the contest with an wonderful dunk with an assist from the backboard.

And when James did get his first bucket.

In a Week 7 showdown, the Falcons inexplicably went for it on 4th-and-6 from their own 47-yard line with 2:00 remaining in the first half.

The embattled Cavs crumbled in Game 3, letting Durant drop 43 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists on their home floor, including a long dagger triple from the same spot that also buried them past year. "You can't have miscommunication, you can't have lulls, you can't have "my faults" or "my bads" or things like that because they're going to make you pay... so the room for error is you just can't have it".

Harris was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers and played with the team between 2014 and 2016, making the NBA Finals in his rookie season.

When the Warriors needed a shot late on with the Cavaliers closing in, Durant drained a three-pointer to extend the lead to 106-100 50 seconds left.




And Durant happened all night. He's been an MVP, a Finals MVP, an Olympic gold medallist already.

He also did it on defense.

If you were rooting for an NBA Finals upset, or you're a Cavaliers or LeBron James fan, Wednesday's Game 3 result took the wind out of your sails. "It's impossible to do that, because they're built from a different cloth, and I know that firsthand".

James did yeoman's work. No other player in Finals history has even done that in two consecutive games.

Hood's point total was five better than Warriors All-Star Klay Thompson, who was 4-for-11 from the field - giving the Warriors' incredible backcourt a combined 21 points on 7-of-27 shooting for the game.

The Cavs kept the game close through most of the fourth quarter.

Despite the Warriors going up 3-0, Curry had a night to forget, scoring just 11 points on a horrid 3-of-16 shooting.

Warriors forward Kevin Durant hit the same shot from nearly the same spot in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. Durant scored 10 points in the third quarter.
