Durant's 33-footer was the final act in his 43-point night, and the Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-102 in Game 3 of the finals on Wednesday night to take a 3-0 lead in the title series for the second straight season.
Cleveland raced into a 16-4 lead in the first half, the highlight being James throwing a pass to himself off the backboard and finishing with a dunk. "How do you put together a group of talent but also a group of minds to be able to compete with Golden State, to be able to compete for a championship?" Durant, 30, gave up nearly $10 million in salary last summer so the Warriors could afford to keep Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston on the roster. No one else other than Durant had more than 10 points for the Warriors.
They came out of halftime on an 11-3 run and outscored the Cavaliers in the quarter, 31-23.
"I would guess that he goes to Houston", Bosh said of his former Heat championship teammate who can opt out of the final year on his Cleveland Cavaliers contract by the end of the month. "The room for error, you just can't have it".
Hood shot 7-for-11 and scored 15 points off the bench in his 25 minutes, which included significant playing time in a one-possession game in the fourth quarter. Signature game. They call Klay Thompson "Mr".

Halep then seized her chance, moving 0-40 ahead and then raising her arms in triumph as Muguruza blazed a backhand long. The clay courts of Roland Garros host the second Grand Slam of the season.
"You know, I just tried to make sure that we came out and didn't foul a three-point shooter or didn't give up a wide-open three or got too excited about that play".
Where things go on Friday night when the Warriors and the Cavs hit the court in the Forest City for Game 4 of this year's Finals is TBD but we know for sure the expectations will be sky-high for Durant after last night's stunning performance. "He's one of the best players that I've ever played against that this league has ever seen".
Even though Green is the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, his overall influence on a game sometimes gets lost.
