WATCH: Kevin Durant s Finals Game 3 clutch shots

The sequel was just as impactful as the first. Once again, Kevin Durant left his mark on The Land in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, this time hitting a dagger far behind the three-point arc, to essentially clinch the Warriors' win. Many people, including many NBA players, felt a sense of deja vu in the heat of the moment, so let's see just how similar and different the two big baskets were: 2017 Finals A year ago, the Cavaliers also trailed 0-2 after dropping both games in Golden State, but looked to be in good position at home, going up by as much as seven points, 102-95, with 8:53 left in the game. JR Smith hit a big three-pointer that kept Cleveland up six, 113-107, but after that, the tandem of Curry and Durant began to find a groove. A runner by Curry got things going, then after a timeout, Durant canned a 13-foot pull-up jumper to get Golden State within two. The Cavs burned their last timeout with 1:15 to go, but Kyle Korver missed a three. Durant himself snagged the rebound, then ran down the court unhindered. He stopped just short of the three-point arc, drawing LeBron James' defense, but KD effortlessly pulled up in transition, and splashed home the triple. Durant's shot gave the Warriors the lead for good, 114-113. Both James and Kyrie Irving failed to connect on three-pointers of their own following the conversion, and Durant and Curry were able to ice this at the line, for a final score of 118-113. KD would finish with 31 points on 10-of-18 shooting, 4-of-7 from downtown, and 7-of-8 at the stripe, in addition to nine rebounds, four assists, two steals, and a block. 2018 Finals The 2018 Finals were different in the sense that Durant was carrying the offensive load for the Warriors in this game. A year ago in Game 3, Curry was good for 26 points, while Klay Thompson logged 30. This time around, Durant would finish with 43, while no other Golden State player had more than 11. Another wrinkle from today's game was that the Warriors had already wrestled control of the game. After being down by as much as 13 points, the fourth period saw eight lead changes and five deadlocks. Golden State was up four, 101-97 with 2:38 to play, following a Curry layup, and his first three-pointer of the game, but James answered with a three-pointer of his own. Durant responded by finding Andre Iguodala for a big slam, then after Tristan Thompson missed a nine-foot turnaround, Durant once again brought the ball down. Unlike last time though, when KD attacked in transition, the Warriors were looking to burn time. Durant only began to get things going when there were five seconds left on the shot clock, accepting an Andre Iguodala screen to get JR Smith switched onto him. Smith had no chance to block Durant's attempt, and his conversion made it 106-100, 49.8 seconds left. Off a timeout, James was able to score on a layup, but a Green dunk, and two Curry charities put this one away. Durant finished with a game-best 43 points on 15-of-23 shooting, 6-of-9 three-pointers, and 7-of-7 free throws. He also made it a double-double with 13 rebounds, plus seven assists and a steal. The 43 points were also a postseason-high. So, which one was better? 2017 was probably a more pressure-packed moment, and it was over LeBron James, making the moment more iconic. 2018 though was cooler, because he had done it before and because it was further back. The official records clock this shot as a 33-footer, seven feet back of his 26-foot make in 2017. Perhaps the thing to consider will be what happens next. In 2017 the Warriors were unable to make it four-four-four-four, suffering their first postseason loss that year, 137-116 in Game 4 (though of course, they'd win it in five on their homecourt). If they win it in four this time, that ultimately could make Durant's Game 3 connection more vital.

PBA: Ta-try kong kunin –- Guevarra on eyeing 5th Slam dunk title

BATANGAS CITY –- Phoenix high-flyer Rey Guevarra just got his fourth Slam Dunk title in five years Friday. Once again, the 31-year old forward dazzled the crowd that trooped the Batangas City Sports Coliseum here to watch the 2018 PBA All-Star Games with his aerial display of athleticism, which included a slam dunk over a man and a motorcycle. Currently, Guevarra is just a title away from tying the feat of legendary Slam Dunk contest phenom KG Canaleta. Now, the question is, will the Letran product gun to equal Canaleta’s five titles?     “In God’s time,” he answered, when asked about shooting for Canaleta’s record, which the current Meralco veteran did in 2005-2007, 2010 and 2012. “Tingnan ko kung kaya ko pa next year.” Guevarra, who made a three-peat from 2014 to 2016 before relinquishing his throne to Chris Newsome of Meralco last year, bested Renz Palma in the sudden death, 40-39, after a 75-75 deadlock in the final round.     Definitely, there is no stopping Guevarra.    “Kung mabigyan ako ng chance siyempre pupunta ako talaga, ta-try kong kunin (ulit ang title),” he said.       --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PBA: Napagod sila sa dance number -- Guaio on beating Luzon All-Star

BATANGAS CITY –- Smart PBA All-Stars head coach Yeng Guiao credited his boys for a job well done despite playing with a short rotation that became even thinner with Allein Maliksi’s early exit in the opening quarter. His Magnificent Seven, excluding Maliksi who played a meager four minutes before calling it a night, defeated the 11-man PBA Luzon All-Stars, 152-149, Friday in the 2018 PBA All-Star Games at the Batangas City Sports Coliseum here.             But the victory didn’t just come because of Terrence Romeo’s 48 points and 11 assists or Jio Jalalon’s triple-double of 12 points, 11 rebounds and 10 dimes. Guaiao shared the secret of their success. The Luzon All-Stars were just plain exhausted. Not because of the game’s quick pace or because of their effort to chip away a 20-point deficit in the third. “Ang sikreto yung Luzon selection masyadong napagod sila. Kahit marami sila, sila ang napagod. Kasi ang haba ng dance number nila so nasunog sila dun,” said Guiao, citing their opponents entertaining performance before the start of the match. The Luzon All-Stars led by team captain and choreographer Arwind Santos were fun to watch in their almost four-minute dance number highlighted by their own rendition of the popular K-Pop song Bboom-bboom by Momoland. But it was an exhausting effort as far as Guiao is concerned.          “Buti kami maikli lang kasi konti lang kami kaya na-preserve namin ang energy namin,” he said. “Bandang huli napagod na rin kami. May lead kami coming into the last few minutes, naubos yung lead namin kasi pagod na nga ang mga bata,” Guiao continued. “Pero mabuti na lang the lead was enough to give us a cushion.” “We almost went into overtime but again that’s really for the enjoyment of the crowd. Buti na lang hindi nag-overtime kasi pagud na pagod na rin kami,” he said.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
