Why home court could give LeBron, Cavaliers the advantage they need

On Wednesday night, it was Durant scoring a playoff career-high 43 points to go along with 13 rebounds and seven assists in a come from behind 110-102 win, giving Golden State a 3-0 lead.

LeBron and the Cavaliers made their push in the fourth quarter, but the Warriors scored on their final six possessions of the game and it summed up the night: Curry wide-open lay-up, Curry open three, Andre Iguodala dunk, Durant three, Draymond Green dunk, and then eventually a couple of Curry free throws. The Cavaliers need to do some serious soul searching before tonight's game if they want to come out with a win.

LeBron James had some fun at the expense of the Portland Trail Blazers during his NBA Finals press conference Thursday.

Perkins and Durant, however, go way back, as the two were former Oklahoma City Thunder teammates, so the former could certainly afford to speak like that about Durant without being misconstrued as someone who's trying to vilify the former league MVP. The Warriors lead the NBA Finals 3-0 over the Cavaliers.

ESPN's Rachel Nichols reported earlier this afternoon that Durant told her today that he will be re-signing with the Warriors.

The rest of the 7 roster spots will have to be filled out mostly through minimum contracts they negotiate with players.

The Cavaliers opened their biggest lead of the series at 13 points and maintained a double-digit advantage through much of the first two quarters, built mostly through the shooting of James and Smith and the rebounding of Kevin Love, who has quietly had a tremendous series. They got back to their roots in game two of the series and ended the game with five different players in double figures in points. "You just can't have mistakes".

"It's definitely a tough loss and we had our chances", James said. Game 4 is Friday night in Cleveland. "The margin of error is very low", James said after the game, per Boston.com. "Kevin Durant was my answer", James said. Golden State now holds a 3-0 lead in the best of seven series, which no team in National Basketball Association history has ever come back from. Curry continued to struggle to find his shot and Durant began to shoot wildly in an attempt to shoulder the load. We want to hear from the PistonPowered community. They scored 49 points in the first quarter of Game 4 [last year].

Games 1 and 2 put ABC atop the ratings for last week. "I think everybody gets excited for the small parts of the game, and Steph is one of those guys that just brings that joy".

And Durant worked them with cruel efficiency.
