James is like Thanos trying to take on the entire group of Avengers, except instead of Infinity Stones, he has J.R. Smith's basketball IQ and Tristan Thompson's drama with the Kardashians.
James answered inside but Curry drove for a layup, got fouled by Love and sank the free throw for a 107-106 Golden State lead with 23.5 seconds in regulation time. We've got lots of guys who can take on that job.
James added 8 rebounds and 8 assists on a night he became the first 50-point scorer to lose an NBA Finals game, according to ESPN Stats & Info. "It was determined he was out of the restricted area but he was not in a legal guarding position prior to Durant's separate shooting motion".

Many pointed to the suspension of star power forward Draymond Green as the turning point of the series, as the defensive extraordinaire racked up one too many technical fouls, forcing the league office to suspend him from Game 6.
"They've been to the finals four years in a row, just like we have, for a reason". The Warriors, in 17 playoff games, outscored their opponents by 130 points in the third quarter and a total of 20 points in the other three quarters combined.
LeBron James has been out of his mind on the court lately. He's been doing it for us all season.
"Even if you start back to the summertime where I felt like it was just bad for our franchise just to be able to trade away our superstar point guard", James said.
