Especially in this series, Iguodala should be a big help in terms of trying to slow down LeBron James, who has averaged 40 points in the first two games.
LeBron James made a great play in the first half, throwing the ball of the glass to himself for a massive two-handed dunk.
They overcame deficits of 17 and 15 points against Houston in the final two games of the Western Conference finals, the second of those on the Rockets' home floor.
"Obviously, from a talent perspective, if you're looking at Golden State from their top five best players to our top five players, you would say they're stacked better than us".
Spectators and commentators couldn't help but notice how similar the shot was to the one Durant made past year in Game 3 of the Finals. But third quarters have kind of been our Achilles heel all year. "Some of those shots, I don't think anybody in the world can hit those but him".
"It wasn't just the number of points", Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. He scored 43 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and dished out seven assists, and he made four 3-pointers from 30-plus feet.
And, just as it did in Game 3 a year ago, it moved Durant and the Warriors to the precipice of a championship.
"Draymond is a catalyst and the anchor for their defense", James said.
In the beginning of Game 3, it was looking like the J.R. Smith debacle to close out regulation of Game 1 was the best chance for a road victory in the first three games. "Bitch ass." Perkins, who was teammates with Durant during their days with the OKC Thunder, has not suited up at all during the NBA Finals.
While Curry was struggling to find his shooting stroke, Durant was having one of his patented offensive outbursts. He logged another triple-double with 33 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds. "But I am confident that we can turn things around", said James on the eve of the third game. "Every opportunity we get to play more minutes together, we start to figure out a better chemistry".
Even though Green is the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, his overall influence on a game sometimes gets lost.
"It would have been a lot more satisfying if we won", Hood said.
