LeBron James takes shot at Blazers for not drafting Kevin Durant

LeBron James, frustrated as he may be down 3-0, was not surprised by Kevin Durant ripping the Cavs hearts out in Game 3 of the Finals for the second consecutive season. LeBron was asked if he thought Durant was going to be a problem when he first went up against him in the Finals back in 2012. LeBron James and company had to watch as the Warriors claimed their third title in four years - on Cleveland's home court. None of his teammates scored more than 11.

But here we are again, with Perkins being a story following the Cleveland Cavaliers' Game 3 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena.

Durant has been making the impossible look easy throughout these entire playoffs. According to The Athletic, Perkins, out of the camera shot, had walked by brandishing two middle fingers.

Durant has still been destroying the Cavaliers by targeting mismatches - he's * a href="http://stats.nba.com/players/playtype-post-up/?CF=PlayerFirstName*E*kev" *shooting 51.5 percent on pull-ups and has posted an enormous 72.7 effective field goal percentage on shot attempts coming after at least seven dribbles. Through 13 career Finals games, Durant has averaged 32.6 points per game, trailing only Rick Barry and Michael Jordan for the highest mark in National Basketball Association history. Draymond Green is just 2-of-9 on 3-pointers and David West is the only other Warriors with a made 3-point basket besides Durant, Green, Thompson and Curry.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were given a frightful sense of deja vu on Wednesday night as Kevin Durant broke their hearts in an nearly identical fashion for the second consecutive year.
