The Eastern Conference champion Cavaliers find themselves in a deep 0-3 hole in the best-of-seven series after losing to the defending champion Golden State Warriors, 110-102, yesterday at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.
James went to the line with 4 minutes, 24 seconds to play and sank both shots, yet the lead was short-lived as Durant made another shot on the other end.
"That was incredible what he did out there tonight", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of Durant postgame. "Some of those shots, I don't think anybody in the world can hit those but him".

The flaw affected Facebook's system for 10 days in May, but Facebook says it still plans to notify users who were impacted. As Recode points out, the private/public setting on Facebook will be the same for new posts as it was on previous ones.
"If my shots were there I just took them patiently and with poise", Durant said.
"This is the beauty of this team and the luxury that we have of having multiple big-time scorers", Kerr said, with the Warriors back in Cleveland for game four on Friday.
Golden State guarded James better in Game 2-though he still scored 29 points on 50 percent shooting and had 13 assists-and they could be even better equipped to slow down James in Game 3.
Curry, who was fantastic in Games 1 and 2 of the series, missed his first nine three-point attempts in Game 3 as the Cavaliers clamped down on defense.

But now the French worldwide , who has an £87.5m release clause in his contract, is being linked with a move away from Diego Simeone's side.
James had 51 points, eight assists and eight rebounds in the loss, a performance he likely won't be able to replicate again. In the meantime, James said "every player does not want to - sad to say, but every player doesn't want to compete for a championship and be in a position where every possession is pressure". Kevin Durant poured in a game-high and career playoff-high 43 points. "I mean, it's nearly like playing the Patriots, you can't have mistakes".
"They are going to come out with a flurry", Kevin Durant said.
Don't overlook Draymond Green, "arguably one of the best defenders and minds in our game".
Despite the magnitude of his 3-pointer, Durant acted like he had been there before, bypassing a celebration for a stone face. If the Rockets had Chris Paul for Game 6 or Game 7 of that series, if Paul's hamstring hadn't betrayed him at the worst possible time, then the Warriors could very well be on vacation right now.

Now, he said, the president is free to stop allies from coasting on the benefits provided at a cost by a dominant America. "Because we didn't deal with our enemies, we dealt with our friends, and we dealt incompetently", he said.
