Smith finally made somewhat of an impact on the game, scoring 13 on 3-of-10 shooting from distance. Entering this series, some questioned whether Durant and Stephen Curry could strike the right balance.
This one, which ended in a 110-102 win by the Warriors, who now have a 3-0 lead in the series, did not have the drama and the palpably foul taste of a wasted opportunity that Game 1 did.
For the second straight game the Warriors off-ball movement - such as their split screens, or the Warriors just slipping a screen - confused a Cavaliers defense that is trying to switch everything but is not defensively disciplined enough to do it. Afterwards, he dismissed comparisons to his 2017 shot and focused on Golden State still needing a fourth victory.
It's clear James takes on a far greater scoring burden while playing at home this post-season, so expect a monster night from LeBron on Wednesday night. "But you definitely tip your hat". I mean, that's what he does. "He's a scorer. You know, he's an assassin, and that was one of those assassin plays right there".
LeBron's magnificence all for naught - again
He's the sixth player all time to register at least 40 points, 10 rebounds and five assists on the road in the NBA Finals . But it wasn't enough in a game where the Cavaliers just have to try to outscore the Warriors because they can't get stops.
The final quarter was a tight affair until Durant won the game in the final minute.
Durant was an efficient 15-of-23 from the field and 6-of-9 from 3-point range. His teammates did the celebrating for him.
Asked who he was staring at, Durant said: "I don't remember". "Tomorrow I'll replay some plays and some moments and things of that nature". Huge flames shot from the scoreboard.

For James, especially, it was a painful defeat.
As for Iguodala's extended rest, he actually said he wasn't too upset that he had to miss the final four games of the Conference Finals and the first two games of The Finals.
Cleveland raced into a 16-4 lead in the first half, the highlight being James throwing a pass to himself off the backboard and finishing with a dunk. If the Warriors sweep the Cavs, it will be the first time an National Basketball Association team has gone winless in the Finals since a young James and the Cavaliers fell to the 2007 National Basketball Association champion San Antonio Spurs.
