Kevin Durant's shot, 'death stare' all but finish off Cleveland Cavaliers

NBA 2K19 REVEALED Lebron James Cover Pre Order Trailer Release Date and more confirmed

Many were quick to point out that Durant's dagger was the same as a year ago.

James admitted that the Warriors, who lead the series 3-0, are more talented than the Cavaliers.

And Smith believes Cleveland fans should get ready to say farewell to James on Friday night.

The Cavs took out the Raptors in just four games during the postseason this year, which caused the firing of former head coach Dwayne Casey.

The former Knicks and Nets big man believes James, who is expected to opt out of his contract with the Cavaliers once the NBA Finals conclude - Cleveland now trails the Golden State Warriors 3-0 - will then sign with the New York Knicks.

"Going into this season, I don't think anybody could have guessed or predicted the ups and downs and the roller coaster we've been on", Curry said Thursday as the Warriors prepped for the possible clincher. "I went back for you for your question", James said.

James then went on to list what makes the Warriors great. Kevin Durant. You've got two guys with MVPs on their team. And then you have Draymond (Green), who is arguably one of the best defenders and minds we have in our game.

If a sweep happens, it could nearly certainly send LeBron out of town on a bullet train this summer as a free agent, in search of the help he'll need if he ever plans to sip champagne in June again.

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. The Warriors haven't been at their absolute best in this series but they proved they can still win even if Curry shoots one of 10 from the three-point line. Afterwards, he dismissed comparisons to his 2017 shot and focused on Golden State still needing a fourth victory.

Durant capped that half with a deep 3-pointer in the final seconds before walking toward the locker room - which served as foreshadowing. Meanwhile the Patriots have played in three of the last four Super Bowls, winning two of them - although they have faced three different opponents in each of those games.

"The reality of the situation is that if they lose Friday night, and I strongly suspect they will, when he walks off the court in all likelihood for the last time, all you can do is stand up and applaud the man".

Late in the game, Durant called for the ball on numerous occasions, clearly looking to seal the win.

"We have a lot of talent as well", James noted.
