Kevin Durant Loves The NBA Finals

Mark Schwarz asks Kevin Durant a question

LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers have become the punchline of many jokes during these NBA Finals, so you can't blame the three-time NBA champ for trying to deflect some of that attention elsewhere.

He ended the night with a playoff career-high of 43 points, along with 13 rebounds and five assists on an efficient 16-of-23 shooting and 6-of-9 from beyond the arc. It was the second-most points ever scored in a Finals game on less than 25 shots from the field. LeBron James and company had to watch as the Warriors claimed their third title in four years - on Cleveland's home court.

What's made Durant even more effective in the Finals is that he's been able to take advantage of holes in the Cavaliers defense, while simultaneously creating more his teammates.

After the game, LeBron paid the ultimate respect to his rival by calling him "one of the best players I've ever played against that this league has ever seen".

Bound Porsche Mission E christened Porsche Taycan
Particularly noteworthy is that the Taycan's 800V charging technology will enable 100km of range with just 4 min of charge. Charging infrastructure and other "smart mobility" expenses will soak up around 700 million euro, Porsche expects.

But just like last season, Durant wasn't going to let that happen and inspired the Golden State Warriors to a 110-102 victory at Quicken Loans Arena to give them a 3-0 lead in the series. He's posted an effective field goal percentage of 51.5 on those closely defended shots, roughly equivalent to Jimmy Butler's effective field goal percentage on all shots, open or defended, during the regular season.

Durant's shot-making has meant so much to the Warriors in the Finals. Although they're up 3-0 and we saw Stephen Curry break the single-game Finals 3-point record in Game 2, the offense hasn't exactly been humming. Curry is 30, Durant is 29, and Draymond Green and Klay are 28.

After Game 3 Wednesday, he targeted Kevin Durant.
