Boston's comeback stunner in Game 3

Boston's comeback stunner in Game 3
"Durant is in good position for that now, especially because there is so little aggravation to be had on the floor for him these days (except for the occasional rantings from Green himself). The Warriors are the first team in history to start 12-0 in the postseason, cheap NBA 2K MT and have managed an average margin of victory of 16.4 points in getting there.Seated next to Durant after the game, Warriors star Stephen Curry said, "This guy right here was amazingly efficient, doing what he does every single night."Durant is emblematic — or, more precisely, one of the drivers — of the ease Golden State has experienced this spring.

When it comes to shots, no defense in the any of the Warriors' three West sweeps was able to keep Durant from his preferred shooting locales. He is shooting 26 percent of his shots from within three feet of the basket, and making about 70 percent of them. He is taking about 14 percent of his shots from 16 feet out to the 3-point line and, incredibly, he is making over 70 percent of those, too.Durant's efficiency reflects that. He is averaging 25.2 points while shooting 55.6 percent from the floor in the postseason, making 45.5 percent of his 3s. His true-shooting percentage is up to 67.3 percent, easily the best of his career — that number had been 57.5 percent in six previous postseasons.

His short game is working. His midrange game is sharper than ever. And where Durant had been a 32.9 percent 3-point shooter from the arc, he is now mostly unstoppable out there, too.The Warriors don't quite know which East team they'll get in the Finals. Cleveland has dominated the bulk of the conference finals there, but Boston's comeback stunner in Game 3 has opened a sliver of a chance, even if the Celtics remain heavy underdogs.A return engagement against the Cavs might not be so bad for Durant.

In his only other Finals appearance, with OKC in 2012, he faced LeBron James' Heat and averaged 30.6 points on 54.8 percent shooting in the Thunder's five-game loss."I'm just proud of the work we've put in from the beginning of the season," Durant said. "We just kept grinding. We didn't talk about championships or anything. We just wanted to build good habits and NBA 2K MT have fun some playing some basketball, simple as that. It's good that we're here now. Obviously, we want to take that into the next series and try to be great."That will be the final test. But through 12 games and three rounds, greatness has been there for Durant.
