Should Cleveland lose Game 4 of this series Friday night and get swept by Golden State, James would be the fifth player to actually be on the floor for a pair of 4-0 defeats in the NBA Finals. With the Finals MVP award up for grabs, I expect Curry to bounce back from his rough shooting night in Game 3 and lead the Warriors to an easy win to cap off the season.
Golden State Warriors'Stephen Curry (30) leaves the court carrying the NBA trophy following their 108-85 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4 of the NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, on Friday, June 8, 2018. His eighth appearance in a row didn't go well either, and now there's uncertainty where the superstar will play next. What exactly does he have to do to win an MVP in the Finals, coach Steve Kerr was asked.
Stephen Curry scored 37 in the sweep clincher - two games after he set a Finals record with nine 3-pointers. "If one of them has a bad game, they have three or four guys that can actually pick up the load".
James is, of course, right-handed.
The way the Warriors have been playing of late, coupled with the poor defensive display from Cleveland, suggests the Finals will be done before a Game 6 occurs.
Golden State outscored Cleveland 25-13 in the third quarter, James managing only four points - all on free throws - in the period, and the Warriors rolled through the final minutes to another coronation.
Cleveland has battled back from an 11-point deficit to regain the lead in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. Then, in the last minute, game Durant's big shot, and the Cavs just didn't have enough gas in their tank to stop the Warriors. "Was able to finish the series off - that's what matters to us".
But it was only a matter of time before the Warriors, who boast perhaps the most potent offense the National Basketball Association has ever seen, took over, using a dominant third quarter to build a 21-point cushion that left the Cavs' hopes of a comeback in their wake.
LeBron James sat in his locker, covered by more ice than clothing and his right hand - which he injured while punching a whiteboard following the Cavaliers' devastating Game 1 loss - wrapped.
And once again, Kevin Durant-the 2017 Finals MVP-had the ball in his hands, the momentum running down the court, and the swagger to pull up from nearly the same spot behind the three-point line from where he hit a memorable shot past year. He was 2-2 in four trips to the NBA Finals with Miami.
