Cold blooded KD put the dagger in the heart of the Cavs
Whether you love it or hate it, the Golden State Warriors are on a historic run, and we are all witnessing history. I’ve learned to just shut up and enjoy it. I don’t like the way it was done with Kevin Durant joining three other All-Stars and you may not either, but there is no questioning the talent on this team and they’re doing exactly what they’re supposed to be doing.
Game 3 was by far the best game in the 2017 NBA Playoffs, period. After two months of blowouts and as some would say “boring basketball” Game 3 gave everybody what they’ve been craving…competition. It was perfect, beautiful and had you on the edge of your seat. Kyle Korver dunked and the Quicken Loans Arena almost lost its roof. Richard Jefferson showed that he can still play for an old guy, Lebron James had 39 points followed by Kyrie Irving’s 38 points. Iman Shumpert got into Stephen Curry’s face, and although it was awkward it just added more excitement and fuel to this game and then the Dubs won…
This was headed for the perfect ending anyone could ask for. Regardless of the first two blowouts we were all looking forward to a competitive series as fans, and Lebron would’ve went on to put a dent in this historic run of the mighty Warriors, but no, not yesterday. It just goes on to prove that not all things are perfect. There’s not always a happy ending, and in this case the villains here are taking full advantage of the Finals. In the end Cleveland was rocking and quickly the fans were left with a sour taste in their mouths leaving everybody in complete disbelief.
Klay Thompson who’s been struggling out of the Dubs big 4 finally showed up, and in my opinion was the key for the Dubs pulling out Game 3. Thompson had 30 points and it was similar to his Game 5 performance from the 2016 Finals. KD added 31 points, but possibly hit the most important shot of this series, and as of now biggest shot of his career when he pulled up on Lebron’s face and pulled out the dagger and hit the heartbreaking three which sealed the deal.
It doesn’t matter anymore if the Cavs win Game 4 and still put a dent into the Warriors perfect run. This just shows me that Lebron and Kyrie can definitely compete with this loaded team, but have no chance to beat them. Lebron responded exactly how he should and they’re going to need some help anywhere from their roster if they want to avoid getting swept. Dating back to he regular season the Warriors are 30-1 and look to make it 31-1 to put a stamp on the 2017 NBA season.
