Prior to writing this post, I must tell you that I am a strong fan of LeBron James, and therefore the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The NBA Finals have concluded. The Golden State Warriors were the victors in 4 games, as was expected. I do believe the Cavs were cheated out of game 1, by the ridiculous referee calls. Had Cleveland won one on the road, against the Warriors, it could have been a different series. I have a tough time determining who won the series , the Warriors or the referees.
They named Kevin Durant MVP, which certainly was the right call. I have never seen a performance in the Finals, better than Durant in the third game. His stats were as follows.
He hit a laser 3-pointer, from 7 feet beyond the arc, to seal the victory.
He scored a personal playoff high, of 43 points.
He was 15 of 23 from the field; 13 rebounds; 7 assists.
Many of his shots stopped min-runs by the Cav’s.
Unconscious, Unbelievable, Best shooting ever, were comments I heard.
No doubt, Durant put the Warriors on his back in game 3. What makes the Warriors so tough, is having other players, that can take over a game, as well, such as Curry in game 4. When called upon Thompson, and Green can be difference makers as well. So, defensively no one can slack off, any these guys, or take a mini-rest.
Let’s hope LeBron joins a team, that can challenge these Warriors.
