Warriors' Kevin Durant held back from heckling Cavaliers fan

2018 NBA Finals- Game Three

One reporter asked him if he thought Durant was going to be a superstar back when LeBron faced him and the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2012 NBA Finals.

Durant is averging 29.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 4.5 assists during the playoffs.

China's trade surplus with United States grows
Imports rose 26 percent from a year ago to $187.9 billion, up from April's 21.5 percent growth, customs data showed Friday. Still a widening in China's surplus with the United States is likely to further irritate Washington.

The report comes after a dominant Game 3 of the NBA Finals for Durant, who delivered 43 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists to edge his team within one victory of its third league championship in four years. As everyone knows, this will be Cleveland's last stand.

Kevin Durant has become something of an antihero of sorts, this after the former Oklahoma City Thunder forward bolted for the greener pastures of the Golden State Warriors en route to his first National Basketball Association championship.

Trump throws G7 into disarray with tweets after he leaves
The group of seven nations that make up the G7 are Canada, France, the United States , the UK, Germany, Japan and Italy. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau vowed afterwards to press ahead with retaliatory tariffs on 1 July.

It was a friendly, yet appropriate gesture between former teammates and good friends off the court after Durant's memorable performance took down Perkins' Cavs and all but eliminated them from the NBA Finals for the second consecutive year.

Durant's footwork and skill are letting him create enough space to get his shots off cleanly, but not enough that we would actually call them open. On top of that, he also recorded an NBA Finals high of nine three-pointers made despite shooting a lackluster 11-of-26 from the field. "He'a an assassin.His ability to handle the ball, shoot the ball, make plays at his length, his size, his speed". According to Sportsradar's shot-making model, Durant has scored 21 more points than expected across the entire series. That's a decline of 45.9 points per 100 possessions from when he's been on the floor.

Taliban announces first cease-fire with Afghan forces since start of war
Ghani has urged ceasefires with the Taliban before, but this was the first unconditional offer since he was elected in 2014. But he did not touch the issue of presence or withdrawal of foreign troops, a key demand of the insurgents.

Getting to this point hasn't been almost as easy as the 3-0 lead would make it appear, and that's mostly because Kevin Durant is making all the hard shots look easy.
