Kevin Durant’s Off-Court Contributions Matches His On-Court Game

Kevin Durant’s Off-Court Contributions Matches His On-Court Game

While meeting with reporters on Thursday, LeBron was asked if he knew years ago that he would end up doing battle with Kevin Durant in important games all throughout his career. The Cleveland Cavaliers had just lost Game 3 of the NBA Finals to Golden State Warriors, and the Warriors were driven by a standout performance from Durant. He finished with 43 points, 13 rebounds, and seven assists on 15-of-23 shooting from the field while Curry and Thompson combined for 21 points, nine rebounds, and eight assists on 7-of-27 shooting.

The shot put the Golden State Warriors up 106 to 100 and led to them winning the game 110 to 102, leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers in 0-3 hole for the series.

Durant has been making the impossible look easy throughout these entire playoffs.

It was a friendly, yet appropriate gesture between former teammates and good friends off the court after Durant's memorable performance took down Perkins' Cavs and all but eliminated them from the NBA Finals for the second consecutive year. Almost two-thirds of his shots in the playoffs (64 percent) been tightly or very tightly defended (with the defender four feet away or closer), according to NBA.com.

Investors are also concerned about the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement, which Trump has threatened to terminate. Trudeau said he "accepted" the long USA explanation in the statement about how Washington did not back the Paris agreement.

This ability to make the shots most other players wouldn't even think of attempting is one of the reasons he's scored so efficiently in the Finals. In the history of the National Basketball Association playoffs, teams trailing 0-3 in a best-of-7 series are 0-131.

Draymond Green and Stephen Curry are already under contract for next season.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were given a awful sense of deja vu on Wednesday night as Kevin Durant broke their hearts in an nearly identical fashion for the second consecutive year.
