"You actually are trying to get me to say something", James said laughing.
Durant is averaging 32 points on 56 percent shooting (47 percent from three), 11 rebounds, and seven assists in the Finals. Nonetheless, James' prediction has come to fruition with Durant getting the upper hand on the league's grandest stage.
Durant, who is on the brink of winning his second consecutive title with the Golden State Warriors, is expected to opt out of his contract to become an unrestricted free agent.
The embattled Cavs crumbled in Game 3, letting Durant drop 43 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists on their home floor, including a long dagger triple from the same spot that also buried them a year ago.
Golden State is a 5.5-point betting favorite, according to OddsShark, and the over/under is 215.5.
After a performance like that, it's hard to imagine how the Cavs come back to even win one game in these Finals. LeBron and the Cavaliers have played well to get to the finals but I feel this is the end of the road for them.
Considering that fact, statements made by James on Thursday morning offered a pretty legitimate cause for concern regarding James' uncertain future in Cleveland. They defeated the Warriors 137-116 in Game 4 behind 40 points from Kyrie Irving and 24 made three-pointers. For the team, another title would solidify them as one of the greatest teams in National Basketball Association history, and for superstars like Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry, another ring will boost their already stellar all-time resumes and push them closer to the top of the mountain.
For years, the Patriots have exploited slip-ups by their opponents while (mostly) playing mistake-free football themselves. The room for error versus a team like this is slim to none. "You can't have miscommunication, you can't have flaws, you can't have 'My fault's or 'My bad's or things like that because they're going to make you pay". Seeing James and Durant play together on one team is undeniably something fans would want to see, but there is only a little chance for it to happen this summer.
