Durant expects to re-sign with Warriors

Kevin Durant Loves The NBA Finals

No team in National Basketball Association history has ever come back from a 0-3 deficit to win the finals, but it's never wise to count out LeBron James, who many people feel is the greatest player in the history of the game. Curry made nine 3-pointers in Game 2 of this series, the most in NBA Finals history, and Cleveland intentionally blanketed him defensively.

James fielded questions after the game, following his own strong performance.

Stephen Curry struggled on Wednesday with 11 points on 3-of-16 shooting, adding six assists and five rebounds with a 1-of-10 mark from downtown.

Durant unloaded a playoff-high of 43 points to go along with 13 rebounds and seven assists for the Warriors, which moved a victory away from their second consecutive title.

In April, it was reported that Durant would not take the option so he could hit free agency and re-sign with the Warriors for next season. 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.


And it was Durant who Perkins directed his ire to after the game.

Between his absurd shot-making and his incredible passing in this series, Durant's impact on the Warriors offense has been invaluable.

If Golden State finishes off LeBron with a sweep Friday, they'll have accomplished a second thing that Michael Jordan's Chicago dynasty in the 90s couldn't - swept a team in the Finals. That's a decline of 45.9 points per 100 possessions from when he's been on the floor.

The Warriors were undoubtedly bolstered by the return of Andre Iguodala in Game 3.

"I just sat down with him about a half hour ago and he says he's re-signing with Golden State this summer, which is not unexpected, by the way", reporter Rachel Nichols told ESPN viewers Thursday.
