While it aroused a tremendous roar from the sellout crowd at Quicken Loans Arena, the monster backboard-bank shot slam dunk wasn't enough for the Cavaliers to overcome defending champion Golden State.
Then, as they've done so often during their current run, Golden State held a scoring edge in the third quarter.
LeBron James: Cavs & Warriors Don't Want Invite To White House
Coach Doug Pederson had met with the team recently to gauge what the feeling around the locker room might be. The White House sent an email to all staff members inviting them to come to the event that morning.
With the Cavaliers knowing their backs were against the wall, it was expected that they would come out of the gates flying in Game 3.
"I just didn't have the level of talent to compete", James said.
That just shows you how great Kevin Durant was tonight, keeping the team within striking distance pretty much all night long.
The final quarter was a tight affair until Durant won the game in the final minute.
"There's going to be nights like this for all of them".
‘Kaala’: Rajinikanth-starrer to finally release in Karnataka
Several pro-Kannada groups have also warned theatres not to screen the film if they want to avoid any untoward incident. According to recent reports, it looks like " Kaala " is finally hitting the screens in Karnataka from today.
"That was incredible what he did out there tonight", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of Durant postgame. "The one he made tonight was about four or five feet behind the one he made past year". ABC and other popular local and cable channels are included in the Hulu Live TV package, so you'll be able to quickly join in time to watch the Warriors Rockets Game 3 online.
Love is known for being one of the more emotional players on the court, and his mood was a rollercoaster in Wednesday night's disappointing loss.
By one measure, it was far and away the most impressive game of Durant's career as he made four shots from 30 feet out or farther. Abdul-Jabbar was on hand for Game 3 as a guest of Cavs owner Dan Gilbert to see James break the tie. We know throughout the course of a 48-minute game, there are going to be plays where it was miscue here or a miscue there. But I think having guys that get so excited about a good play, a good block or a good rotation or a good shot or dagger shot. "We've been in a position where we could win two out of these three games". With the dynamic that Houston has - you can argue that they could have taken Golden State down this year.
