Curry had appeared to be vying with LeBron James, who earned a triple-double in Game 3 to follow up a staggering 51-point game in the previous match-up, to be crowned MVP but Durant has now moved ahead of both of the pair believes former Boston Celtics ace Pierce.

Golden State signed Durant as a free agent in the summer of 2016 after their team that went a record 73-9 in the regular season lost to Cleveland in Game 7 of the Finals, becoming the first team in league history to blow a 3-1 Finals lead.

There really shouldn't be any argument as to who is the best player for Golden State.

In the time since he left the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors two years ago, Kevin Durant has heard plenty from fans.

Iguodala had averaged 11.4 points in his 18 previous Finals games - including a 20-point showing for Golden State in last year's title clincher against Cleveland. However, no one scored more than the 11 points Curry had.

"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".

The sources claimed that there was a dispute going on between the two of them on this issue as Arbaaz was not paying. His name reportedly came up while the police were innterrogating a bookie, Sonu Jalan, who was arrested on Tuesday.

"The one he made tonight was 4 or 5 feet behind the one he made previous year", Cavaliers forward LeBron James said.

"I'm living in the moment now", James said after practice Thursday. If Golden State wins, it'll be their third National Basketball Association championship in four years. The Cavaliers rolled the dice and put Rodney Hood into the series, and got 15 points from him. Stephen Curry has become the odds-on favorite to win the 2018 NBA Finals MVP award after making 14 of his 28 three-point attempts.

In the beginning of Game 3, it was looking like the J.R. Smith debacle to close out regulation of Game 1 was the best chance for a road victory in the first three games. "I definitely think about that from time to time". So I just get back to work tomorrow and figure out a better game plan.

Warriors forward Kevin Durant scored 43 points on 15-of-23 shooting. We know throughout the course of a 48-minute game, there are going to be plays where it was miscue here or a miscue there.

"It's a different game, different season", Durant said. "We just try to do whatever it takes to get the W. Run the right plays", he reflected.
