When Kevin Durant is really grooving, stepping into silky jumpers and storming towards the rim, so many things need to go wrong for the Warriors to lose. In a nightmarish final minute against the Cavaliers, so many things did.
Cleveland claimed a 109-108 victory at Quicken Loans Arena on Sunday, digging out of a 14-point fourth-quarter hole and a three-point deficit in the final 45 seconds thanks to a toxic cocktail the Warriors were hoping to never taste again: One scoop of over-eagerness, another of indecision, a dash of controversial refereeing, and a healthy dose of Kyrie Irving heroics.
Despite Durant’s best efforts in one of the most memorable Christmas Day clashes in recent history, Golden State found itself in the last place it wanted to be six months after its Finals collapse: ruing another nail-biting defeat that came caked in self-inflicted wounds.
“We’re mad, man,” Klay Thompson told reporters afterwards. “The way we lost that game, we gave them a gift.”
