NBA Finals Live Score Kevin Durant shoots the ball against Cleveland Cavaliers

NBA Finals Live Score Kevin Durant shoots the ball against Cleveland Cavaliers

In Game 3, he also notably missed a few open layups.

There sure was. And he sure did.

Following Friday's defeat to the Golden State Warriors - which handed Stephen Curry and Co. a 4-0 sweep and their third title in four years - James revealed he had injured his hand after Game 1 when he punched a blackboard in the locker room in a fit of anger. "It's going to be shots from all over the place", Curry said.

"At the end of the day, Kevin Durant's going to go down as probably one of the best scorers this game has ever seen", the Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson said. Kevin Durant had a triple-double with 20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, and was named the MVP of the Finals. That's the opposite of smart, something Michael Jordan wouldn't have done, I bet.

Durant becomes the 11th player to win Finals MVP twice, joining six-time victor Michael Jordan, three-timers Magic Johnson, Shaquille O'Neal, Tim Duncan and James, and two-timers Kobe Bryant, Larry Bird, Hakeem Olajuwon, Willis Reed and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

"That's how you know we're a great team, is when everybody's coming after us", Durant said.

Starbucks closes Sarasota-Manatee shops for racial-bias training
The national chain is closing more than 8,000 stores nationwide Tuesday to restore its image after backlash from an incident. The stores were closed for up to four hours at either one or 2pm and shared with customers when they would be open again.

It wasn't a foregone conclusion this time.

The Warriors are the first NBA team to grab a 3-0 lead in the NBA Finals in back-to-back seasons, but they need no reminder how last year's Game 4 in Cleveland turned out.

It's been all downhill for the Cavs since that infamous J.R. Smith blunder in Game 1.

The Warriors are better. He got seven of the 11 votes cast by the media, with Curry getting the other four. Voting for Curry were Steve Aschburner of NBA.com, Jon Barry of ESPN Radio, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press and Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.com.

"We got a chance to close out this series and that's our focus", said Green. Two back-to-back... We all want something that's biggest than ourselves. "It's just the talent we have and the experience we've gained". "He's all about the team".

Kerr added: "I just want to congratulate Cleveland on an unbelievable season". He endured 26-, 36- and 23-win seasons in his first three years as the No. 7 pick out of Davidson College-under Don Nelson, Keith Smart and Mark Jackson, respectively. He has the risk of cracking the whole shell or breaking the whole shell and then he gets pieces rather than just one egg. What a shame that would've been for all involved. He's now won three National Basketball Association championships, he's led the league in scoring, set numerous three point records, and won two MVP awards including the only unanimous MVP ever. If the Rockets had Chris Paul for Game 6 or Game 7 of that series - if Paul's hamstring hadn't betrayed him at the worst possible time - then the Warriors could very well be on vacation right now.

Others compared the delivery to a novelty greeting card or an envelope used in a game show. After the meeting, the North Korean delegates chatted with Trump on the White House lawn.

That something ended up being Durant.

"Steph went out and recruited K.D. with this in mind: Winning titles", Kerr said.

Ultimately, not looking their best at times this season might make them better.

"For a lot of different reasons", he continued. This is a man who averaged a league-leading 36.9 minutes per game this season and carried his team to a Finals appearance that was anything but guaranteed. You guys can write about MVP.

"You don't want to cheat the moment", Curry said, the victory champagne still drying on his clothes and skin, wanting no part of any talk about dynasties or anything like that. "Does it? Does it?" "And that's what happened". I was able to do that.

As he should, MVP or not.
