Basketball: Golden State Warriors beat Cleveland to sweep NBA Finals

Adjust Comment Print

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.

Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry (30) celebrates 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.

James Worthy was on both of those teams - in 1983 and 1989 - but didn't actually play in the first sweep because of and injury.

The final buzzer of Game 4 served to tell the Warriors something they already knew.

Another Summer of LeBron is officially underway and there are already teams stretching from Philadelphia to Los Angeles hoping to land the three-time champion, who may have to go elsewhere to put together a cast strong enough - and as James made clear this week, smart enough - to bring down the Warriors.

After Game 4, James said the injury was "self-inflicted" and occurred because he was emotional after the Cavs lost the close game. So I don't have an answer for you right now.

We'll have up-to-the-minute scoring and stats here throughout the game.

"I came back because I felt like I had some unfinished business", LeBron said. While Cleveland has made the Finals each of the past four years, he's often had to carry the team; his 34-point scoring average in the Finals easily topped Shaquille O'Neal's record 28-point average in 1995, ESPN reported. "To be able to be a part of a championship team two years ago with the team that we had and in the fashion that we had is something I will always remember".

Congrats to the Warriors, they played with more effort and the will of a championship team.

"I still have so much to give to the game", James said. "I'm sure it would have been nice for Steph to win the MVP, but honestly, I don't think he's that disappointed at this point". "Pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand, so that's what it is". KD can negotiate a new, long-term deal with the Warriors to stay with the team for the foreseeable future, or he can sign another two-year deal, with a player option after one season like he previously did.

So this series is just about finished, or at least, that's what the history books say.

"I had emotions on the game was taken away from us".

The Cleveland Cavaliers didn't enter Friday with much hope, trailing the Golden State Warriors 3-0 in the NBA Finals.

That outburst aside, James was proudest of being a rock for the Cavs in a hard season.

"It has definitely been a whirlwind", James said. "So I kind of knew, just from a spiritual sense how hard it would be". "We keep waking up every day and trying to get better and we end up here".

"Looking at this playoff journey, we knew it wasn't going to be as easy as past year", Curry said.

Of four consecutive seasons of scaling the National Basketball Association peak, totaling 411 games - a fifth regular season, plus one game - this was by far the most challenging, coming with the wind in their faces and a trail of bandages and blood on the rocks.
