Kevin Durant dribbled up court with under a minute left in Game 3 against the Cavaliers. It was a dagger triple that gave the Warriors a six-point lead in a game that Cleveland absolutely needed to win. That shot sucked the life out of a Cavaliers team that now need a miracle to win the Larry O’Brien Trophy.
The Warriors took a 3-0 series lead last year, and even though the Cavs took Game 4, Golden State won at home in five. The present season looks like the same result, because it’s always better to celebrate in front of your fans than the enemy’s home.
