Kevin Durant Out for NBA Finals Game 3 With Calf Injury

Kevin Durant Out for NBA Finals Game 3 With Calf Injury

Over the last three seasons, the Warriors are 35-5 including the regular season and playoffs in games they've played with Stephen Curry in the lineup without Kevin Durant.

Everyone who enters one of the many contests online to win tickets to an NBA Finals game knows it's a long shot, but for one Kitchener woman that long shot paid off. Was that a big win for the Warriors?

The Golden State Warriors are still hopeful Klay Thompson will feature in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night. Iggy hurt in game 1 and Klay & Looney couldn't finish game 2. "He's a strong player", Marc Gasol said. Curry also shot almost 44-percent from deep this season on a career-high 11.7 three-point attempts per game.

- Bet on yourself: Fred VanVleet was Toronto's second-leading scorer in Game 2, contributing 17 points off the bench while also guarding Steph Curry on the defensive end of the floor.

After Bogut's layup above, Raptors head coach Nick Nurse called timeout.

While it won't be an easy task, since the Warriors haven't lost at home since the first round, there are ways for the Raptors to bounce back and retake the series lead. The series is tied, 1-1. At this point, he's widely known as the greatest shooter of all time.

- Third quarter energy: After leading throughout the first half in Game 2, things took a sharp turn in the third quarter for the Raptors as the Warriors opened the quarter with an 18-0 run.

DeRozan enabled a certain level of success, and his greatness made the trade for Leonard possible - but there are so many reasons the Raptors are on the verge of a title just one year after DeRozan's exit that have nothing to do with his past contributions.

Too bad they were playing the best third quarter team in National Basketball Association history.
