LeBron James of Cleveland Cavaliers played with significant hand injury
6 jokes Le Bron James has made despite the Cavs rough NBA Finals
09 June, 2018, 15:42
Golden State completed the sweep - the ninth sweep in Finals history - against Cleveland with a 108-85 victory in Game 4 on Friday in what was possibly LeBron James' last game as a Cavalier.
By the start of the fourth quarter, the only question was whether Curry would win his first NBA Finals MVP or if it would go to Durant for the second year in a row.
Still tired and wrestling with emotions after losing Game 3 on Wednesday night, when Kevin Durant scored 43 points and shot the Warriors within one win of their third title in four years, James pointed out Thursday what has become terrifyingly obvious: The Warriors are at another level and may be for a while. Yet Golden State won anyway with relative ease because Durant took over the game, accounting for nearly 40 percent of the Warriors' scoring output while also leading the team in rebounds (13) and assists (7).
The sweep was the first since 2007 when Cleveland was swept by San Antonio and only the ninth in Finals history.
They played well enough to win this game, but awful defensive execution down the stretch and Kevin Durant proved too much for Cleveland to overcome. KD should now just go back to his "Slim Reaper" nickname, as he is just killing the hopes and dreams of anyone thinking they can beat the Warriors...
James said after the loss he played the last three games with a broken right hand, reportedly caused when he punched a display board in frustration after a J.R. Smith error and referee call reversal led to an overtime loss in a game the Cavs led late. Golden State would be the first team to be responsible for two sweeps, as the 1975 Warriors swept the Washington Bullets.
The Warriors now join a select list of teams to win three National Basketball Association championships in four years and are expected to add to that impressive haul.
"We just know how to win and we really appreciate what everyone brings to the table every single game" Curry said.
And they are having more than their share of fun along the way. This time it was Durant's Warriors doing the sweeping. LeBron and the Cavaliers have played well to get to the finals but I feel this is the end of the road for them. James finished with 23 points before being taken out with four minutes left in the game. You can also download the mobile app and use a subscriber login to also watch tonight's Game 4 online.
Kerr was forced to mix and match lineups, and it became obvious the Warriors weren't going to go 16-1 and storm their way to a title like they did in 2017, when their only postseason loss came in Game 4 after the Cavs made 24 3-pointers. Next, Golden State blew Cleveland out of the water in Game 2.
"I still have so much to give to the game", James added.
The Warriors got healthy, and now they're on the brink of a dynasty not likely soon forgotten.
The Spurs seemed to have a different role player that would step up every night, and with the Warriors, they have a lot of good players who come off the bench and can get hot at any time.
