Kevin Durant Loves The NBA Finals

Share

As evidenced in last night's (June 6) dagger three-pointer against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the third game of the 2018 NBA Finals, Durant's ice-cold nature on the court serves his team well but it's his work off the court that really stands out.

Perkins isn't the only Cavalier frustrated by the play of Durant, who's averaging 31.6 points in the Finals.

Kevin Durant will be back with the Warriors next season. He's posted an effective field goal percentage of 51.5 on those closely defended shots, roughly equivalent to Jimmy Butler's effective field goal percentage on all shots, open or defended, during the regular season.

Four-time NBA MVP LeBron James was impressive again, finishing with 33 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds, but it proved to be not enough for the Cavaliers to pull off the victory.

No, interestingly, the casting director wanted her to play Miss Moneypenny, but that role went to Lois Maxwell instead. Originally, Gayson was meant to play M's secretary, Miss Moneypenny, but Lois Maxwell landed that role instead.

Although history favors the Warriors after winning Game 3, Durant knows that the team still has more work to do in the next game. According to Sportsradar's shot-making model, Durant has scored 21 more points than expected across the entire series.
