LeBron: 'We haven't had many playmakers' for the year

In a classic bit of trolling earlier in this series, Warriors fans chanted "M-V-P!"

Among the players that Cleveland traded at the deadline were Isaiah Thomas and Dwyane Wade, who both played fewer than 50 games with the Cavaliers.

"The same wing, different location, but you definitely tip your hat", James said. I think that's very important. "I mean, he's a victor". Green described it "almost like I was cussing him out, but I was so happy".

The series isn't over of course, but that day draws near.

If you were rooting for an NBA Finals upset, or you're a Cavaliers or LeBron James fan, Wednesday's Game 3 result took the wind out of your sails. On a night when Curry and Klay Thompson combined to shoot 7-of-27, Durant kept the Warriors in the game.

James essentially said you have to play the ideal game to beat the Warriors because they don't beat themselves.

This solo eruption turned out to be enough for the Warriors to escape with a 110-102 win as Steph Curry struggled with 11 points on a 1-of-10 shooting from downtown. Durant carried them, though, finishing with a playoff career-high 43 points. Durant scored 24 points in the first half on 7-of-10 shooting, including 3-of-4 from 3-point range. And Cleveland, despite LeBron James' monster numbers, now faces a win-or-go-home scenario.

The Cavs took out the Raptors in just four games during the postseason this year, which caused the firing of former head coach Dwayne Casey.

No, none of that was the lasting image of Kevin Durant that became a permanent tattoo on Game 3, maybe even this championship series.

That certainly sounds like Finals MVP type-stuff, so Durant looks poised to join elite company.

Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls had two separate strings of three straight (1991-93 and 1996-98). Many teams are reportedly in the hunt, from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Boston Celtics. Last year, Cleveland managed to win Game 4 before losing the next game-and the Finals-in Golden State.

Warriors forward Kevin Durant hit the same shot from nearly the same spot in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. He did the same thing Wednesday, nearly from the same spot, except this time it was even farther out. "I mean, that's what he does". It's a lot of people that believe that he's not for the people or doing things that's right by the people so that's not surprising you know, hearing the news today with the Eagles.

Rodney Hood, who sat out three games before playing four minutes of garbage time in Game 2 of the Finals, came off the bench to score 15 points for the Cavaliers.

"You actually are trying to get me to say something."
"I really think Fiz can get in his ear and make that happen". "Is it if there is a ball on the ground we can't reach for it but you've got to dive for it?" The 3-0 deficit has, until now, been insurmountable in National Basketball Association playoff annals.

In theory, the MVP award is still up for grabs.

Durant hasn't just been helping out on the court though.
