LeBron: Playing Warriors almost like playing Patriots

Iguodala has missed the past six games with a bone bruise in his left knee. Durant, shooting like Curry, nailed a record four 3-pointers from 30-plus feet.

With less than a minute left in the first half, Iguodala went to the locker room with a right leg contusion. I feel our players play much better at home than they do on the road.

While it was a quiet night from Curry and Klay Thompson, who finished with 10 points, the Cavaliers simply had no answer to Durant. "We just don't know". They sensed when he was dancing into shots and stuck their hands straight up, only for Durant to rise a little higher and make the shot over them. Instead of being sleepless from watching game video after a Game 4 loss, Durant hopes to be sleepless from celebrating a second National Basketball Association title and perhaps a second Finals MVP trophy.

"That was incredible what he did out there tonight", said Warriors coach Steve Kerr of Durant.

"I think we all support each other in real - with a real child-like approach to the game", he said. "I just took the shot".

"No, I just kept hearing somebody saying K.D., K.D., and I didn't hear what they said after that", Durant said.

"Typical Andre line", Kerr said.

"This game was like deja vu of Game 3 past year for him just all the way around", said Golden State's Draymond Green.

Muguruza essentially got that round off, too: Her opponent, Lesia Tsurenko , quit with an injury after only two games. Sharapova was the French Open champion in 2012 and 2014; Muguruza took the trophy in 2016.

It was another dagger in the title hopes of Cleveland star LeBron James, who had 33 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists while Kevin Love added 20 points and 13 rebounds for the Cavaliers.

Tyronn Lue finally gave Rodney Hood a chance - the mid-season acquisition's chemistry with LeBron has been iffy, but in a series where the Cavs need shot creation he is their second best at that. 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. "It gave Draymond [Green] a rest".

Cleveland has been close in two games of this series and yet it was obvious to James as he fell into a chair at his post-game press conference that Golden State is too loaded.

"Now everyone is trying to figure that out, to put together that talent and those minds", James said. "It was good to be part of that process".

"Yeah, I hear all the narratives throughout the season that I was joining, I was hopping on bandwagons, I was letting everybody else do the work", Durant told NBC Sports. It was actually good for the soul, good for my mind. "I was locked in every game like I was playing".

They led by six at half-time, but the Warriors grabbed the initiative in the third, outscoring the Cavaliers 31-23 to take an 83-81 lead into the fourth quarter.

They played well enough to win this game, but awful defensive execution down the stretch and Kevin Durant proved too much for Cleveland to overcome.
