That series, one where the Warriors led 3-1, changed when they couldn't finish the job while being presented with serious adversity.
LeBron James made a great play in the first half, throwing the ball of the glass to himself for a massive two-handed dunk.
Curry's single 3-pointer in Game 3 made him the first player in National Basketball Association history with a 3-pointer in 43 consecutive playoff road games.
He grinned wide and raised his eyebrows in awe at the magical sight, while Golden State Warriors players looked unimpressed beside him.
It might not have been a carbon copy of the 2017 shot, but it could have similar effects; Durant is now one win away from a second straight title and possibly his second straight Finals MVP.
Spectators and commentators couldn't help but notice how similar the shot was to the one Durant made a year ago in Game 3 of the Finals.
"Just for him, just as a person, to be healthy and be able to play in The Finals now that we're here, I think that would mean a lot to him and give us an emotional boost as well".

Only Durant, Shaquille O'Neal and Michael Jordan scored 25 or more in their first 11 Finals games. They'll get to know me as a person, I was confident with that.
"Andre helps us in every regard", Kerr said.
The Warriors found themselves down by 10 early on but bounced back and claimed a 110-102 win despite Curry and Thompson supplying just 21 points combined as their shot-making disappointed. "He raised up and made a big shot for them, kind of like he did previous year".
"Draymond is a catalyst and the anchor for their defense", James said. However, Jordan's 33.4 points per game playoff average eclipses James' 28.9 points per game mark in the postseason.
With Curry and Thompson non-factors much of the game, combining for 21 points on 7 for 27 combined shooting, Durant finished with a playoff career-best 43 points.
"I played with guys with that same type of intensity", Durant said, "but his talent and feel is different".
Even though Green is the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, his overall influence on a game sometimes gets lost.
