One reporter asked him if he thought Durant was going to be a superstar back when LeBron faced him and the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2012 NBA Finals.

Perkins isn't the only Cavalier frustrated by the play of Durant, who's averaging 31.6 points in the Finals.

With the Dubs down by two in the final minute of last year's Game 3 encounter, KD hit a huge three over LeBron James to give his team a lead that they wouldn't relinquish and effectively sealed the title.

Four-time NBA MVP LeBron James was impressive again, finishing with 33 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds, but it proved to be not enough for the Cavaliers to pull off the victory.

His performance was remarkable in so many ways but the efficiency with which he scored against Cleveland's defensive pressure really stood out.

On Wednesday night, it was Durant scoring a playoff career-high 43 points to go along with 13 rebounds and seven assists in a come from behind 110-102 win, giving Golden State a 3-0 lead.

What's made Durant even more effective in the Finals is that he's been able to take advantage of holes in the Cavaliers defense, while simultaneously creating more his teammates.

"Kevin Durant is one of the best players I've ever played against, that this league has ever seen".

Durant's shot-making has meant so much to the Warriors in the Finals.

Trailing 0-2 from the first two games of the NBA Finals, the Cavs returned home hoping to claw their way back into the series.

Getting to this point hasn't been almost as easy as the 3-0 lead would make it appear, and that's mostly because Kevin Durant is making all the hard shots look easy.
