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.
"There is just a sense that we're all on the same team and nobody cares about whose team it is and all that stuff", Warriors Coach Steve Kerr said Tuesday. How are we going to attack.
No conversation was necessary at Quicken Loans Arena because Curry simply wasn't taking over anything.
"You know, I just tried to make sure that we came out and didn't foul a three-point shooter or didn't give up a wide-open three or got too excited about that play". Reminiscent of last year's pretty great Game 3 effort, Durant scored a playoff career-best 43 points on Wednesday to help seal the deal in the minds of many that the GSW will be the ones holding the trophy in the end.

Morale of Syrians Raised after Retaliatory Attack on Israel: Shamkhani
Netanyahu's comments followed reports in the past few days that Iran-backed forces were preparing to withdraw from southern Syria. Al-Moallem says Israel is making false claims to try and pressure Iran, its archrival.
The difference Wednesday was the Warriors chipped away at the Cavaliers' lead and tied the score 26-26 on a pull-up jumper by Kevin Durant with 32.6 seconds left in the opening quarter.
All of these events were downright ideal for the Cavs: 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 James the contributions he's craved.
The Cavs led 14-4 with 7:57 left in the first quarter, a complete flip from Game 2 when the Warriors jumped to a 15-6 lead with 8:12 left in the first quarter.
Cleveland outrebounded Golden State 28-16 in the first half - including grabbing an absurd 10 offensive rebounds. "It's hard to make shots at this level in the National Basketball Association and I understand that". Golden State lead the final series 3-0. No one else other than Durant had more than 10 points for the Warriors. Cleveland, meanwhile, didn't attempt a single one. It would be the Cavs' third Finals loss to the Warriors in the past four years. After Curry had a big Game 2 with 33 points, Game 3 was Durant's turn.
"Steph is struggling, Klay is struggling, if you've got to have a "Mr October" then he's "Mr June" now because this guy has been the best player in June the last two years".
