Kevin Durant will re-sign with Warriors

Kevin Durant will re-sign with Warriors

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.

His 43-point, 13-rebound, 7-assist performance is ideal for Basketball-Reference Play Index bingo. The Warriors won anyway, taking a 3-0 lead in the Finals behind a strong game from Draymond Green and an MVP-caliber performance from Kevin Durant. None of his teammates scored more than 11. By Game Score, it was the sixth-best individual Finals performance going back to 1983-84.

Durant has still been destroying the Cavaliers by targeting mismatches - he's * a href="http://stats.nba.com/players/playtype-post-up/?CF=PlayerFirstName*E*kev" *shooting 51.5 percent on pull-ups and has posted an enormous 72.7 effective field goal percentage on shot attempts coming after at least seven dribbles.

"Kevin Durant is one of the best players I've ever played against, that this league has ever seen".


But here we are again, with Perkins being a story following the Cleveland Cavaliers' Game 3 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena. "He'a an assassin.His ability to handle the ball, shoot the ball, make plays at his length, his size, his speed". In the history of the National Basketball Association playoffs, teams trailing 0-3 in a best-of-7 series are 0-131.

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

Getting to this point hasn't been almost as easy as the 3-0 lead would make it appear, and that's mostly because Kevin Durant is making all the hard shots look easy.
