Warriors' Kevin Durant held back from heckling Cavaliers fan

But there was a silver lining for those fans after Golden State took a commanding 3-0 lead in the series.

"It's nearly like playing the Patriots", James said.

The two-year, $51 million deal Durant agreed to last year included an opt-out clause for the 2018-19 season, which he reportedly intends to exercise in order to negotiate a new deal with the Warriors. "So, definitely a different year, just overall, personally with injuries, as a team with dealing with injuries, dealing with the kind of expectations that have been placed on us from the outside and the noise around us as a team".

Cavaliers fans heckled Kevin Durant after the Golden State Warriors took the lead National Basketball Association finals on Wednesday night, outside the team hotel, per TMZ.

James then went on to list what makes the Warriors great. "Because they're already more talented than you are, but they also have the minds behind it, too, and they also have the championship DNA". Kevin Durant. You've got two guys with MVPs on their team. The four-time league MVP registered the 10th triple-double of his Finals career on a night that saw many highlights.

It could have an extra storyline behind with James entering free agency this summer.

That gives Durant another forever-replayed moment - one that measures a little farther than last year's 3-pointer that helped the superstar forward win his first championship ring. Afterwards, he dismissed comparisons to his 2017 shot and focused on Golden State still needing a fourth victory. They were both pull-up 3-pointers that served as daggers.

James essentially said you have to play the flawless game to beat the Warriors because they don't beat themselves. That series, one where the Warriors led 3-1, changed when they couldn't finish the job while being presented with serious adversity. They had numerous defensive breakdowns in the third quarter and ended up losing by eight on a night Curry shot 3-for-16, including 1-for-10 on threes, and scored just 11 points.

But a lot of the angst won't be about the Warriors, it will be about James. "We have another opportunity on Friday to win on our home floor.to extend the series".

Late in the game, Durant called for the ball on numerous occasions, clearly looking to seal the win.
