Nylon Calculus: Kevin Durant makes the impossible look easy

Stephen Curry struggled on Wednesday with 11 points on 3-of-16 shooting, adding six assists and five rebounds with a 1-of-10 mark from downtown.

His performance was remarkable in so many ways but the efficiency with which he scored against Cleveland's defensive pressure really stood out.

What's made Durant even more effective in the Finals is that he's been able to take advantage of holes in the Cavaliers defense, while simultaneously creating more his teammates.

But just like last season, Durant wasn't going to let that happen and inspired the Golden State Warriors to a 110-102 victory at Quicken Loans Arena to give them a 3-0 lead in the series.

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. "He'a an assassin.His ability to handle the ball, shoot the ball, make plays at his length, his size, his speed". Curry is 30, Durant is 29, and Draymond Green and Klay are 28.
