Kevin Durant hit a shot to cut it to seven in the third and then they went on a 19-1 run during that stretch and things started getting a little chippy.

They hit some tough shots. Kevin (Durant), James (Harden) contested their 3. They hit some rainbow 3s that kind of kept them going. It definitely will get chippy. It's the Finals and guys don't want to go home. That wasn't the series in a whole just from those few possessions.

How proud are you of you and your teammates for sticking together?

I'm very proud. I personally want to thank them for believing in me, the coaching staff, the whole organization, fans. They stuck with me regardless of what I've done and what I do for the team. The group of guys that we have, always stick together. Regardless of what happens, we always stick together and we want to come back and be better.
