"I just tried to stay in the zone", Durant said.
James was fantastic, again: 33 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. On Wednesday, history repeated itself. Draymond Green and Stephen Curry stood on both sides of Durant screaming while the 6-9 (or so he says) forward didn't break character. Next game, Curry plunges into a deep 3-for-16 shooting freeze, Klay Thompson scores only 10 points. and Durant rips off 43.
Though the Cavaliers as a whole had an impressive showing, it simply wasn't enough against the Warriors.
Since the Cavaliers haven't been able to play the ideal game against Golden State, this summer James could try to find and help assemble the flawless team. To be fair, it wasn't exactly the same shot. And just like previous year, it was nothing but net.
"You definitely tip your hat", James said. "I'm not surprised. I mean, no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway". 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.
It might not have been a carbon copy of the 2017 shot, but it could have similar effects; Durant is now one win away from a second straight title and possibly his second straight Finals MVP.

Tuesday's primary elections: Three key takeaways
The second and third place finishers are both Democrats, Harley Rouda and Hans Keirstead, with about 70 votes separating them. It's expected to drive up Republican turnout that could benefit candidates in tough races for Congress and the Legislature.
Durant won it a year ago by averaging 35.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 5.4 assists. His teammates did the celebrating for him.
They might be off to a rough start, but with LeBron James - who is arguably the greatest basketball player ever - as the leading man, anything is possible.
Instead, Cleveland is only left to wonder if James is a game from leaving.
For James, especially, it was a painful defeat. Green can turn in a triple-double on any given night and is one of the best defenders in the league. Three minutes into the first quarter, he faked a shot and threw a pass off the backboard to himself for a two-handed dunk. Kevin Love had 20 points and 13 rebounds and J.R. Smith finished with 13 points, finally making some shots.
It doesn't happen often, but James was upstaged on his home court.
"That was incredible what he did out there tonight", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said afterward. "And Kevin was the story in the second half, closing it out".
