Durant Says he Will Re-Sign with Warriors

Kevin Durant stood calmly near midcourt - and a very familiar spot - as teammates Stephen Curry and Draymond Green screamed at him in celebration.

Late in the game, Durant called for the ball on numerous occasions, clearly looking to seal the win.

James and Kevin Love looked stunned by Durant's shot and sounded resigned during their postgame news conferences.

And the tally was James' 17 wins to Durant's four, including a lopsided 2012 championship series in which James got his first title and Finals MVP.

The stage was certainly set for the Cavaliers to record their first win of the NBA Finals with so numerous Warriors playmakers having off nights.

Tyronn Lue finally gave Rodney Hood a chance - the mid-season acquisition's chemistry with LeBron has been iffy, but in a series where the Cavs need shot creation he is their second best at that. "They are going to try to do the same thing in the first quarter and more on Friday".

All of these events were downright ideal for the Cleveland Cavaliers: Stephen Curry's shooting game was very bad for most of the night, Klay Thompson's wasn't much better, the Cavs led by as many as 13 in the first half and some non-producers from the first two games of these NBA Finals were starting to finally give LeBron James the contributions he's craved.

Though the Warriors enjoyed a third-quarter surge in which they reversed a six-point halftime deficit, the Cavaliers managed to withstand the run, as the teams alternated leads in the fourth quarter. "You just can't have mistakes".

"I just sat down with him about an hour and a half ago and he said he's re-signing with Golden State", Nichols said.

LeBron James might be playing his "last" game for the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second and final time on Friday as the National Basketball Association superstar prepares to become a free agent on July 1. But now, after KD went off for 43, 13, and 7, the Warriors fans seem to be forgetting how much they disliked KD's isolation plays last series.

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.

"It's a different game, different season", Durant said. Teams that have fallen behind 3-0 in the playoffs are 0-131.

"When a guy like Kevin Durant is hitting these shots, it's a joy to watch". They scored 49 points in the first quarter of Game 4 [last year].

In January, they spent a night in a auto together driving around James' hometown in Akron talking about their lives and their careers and the lessons they learned in a feature for "Uninterrupted".

Games 1 and 2 put ABC atop the ratings for last week.

"They are going to come out with a flurry", Durant said.
