Stephen Curry wasn’t feeling it. Neither was Klay Thompson. While both of Golden State’s splash brothers went ice cold in Game 3, Kevin Durant carried the Warriors to a third straight win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, scoring 43 points to push this series to the brink.
Durant was simply unstoppable. He converted 15-of-23 field goals, including 6-of-9 from behind the arc, adding 13 rebounds, seven assists and one steal.
Without Durant’s incredible individual efforts in this game, LeBron James and the Cavaliers would have won.
Twitter applauded Durant and buried the Cavaliers, who now have to overcome history if they have any hope of coming back from this 3-0 hole.
