Adversity toughened Golden State Warriors in quest to win another National Basketball Association title

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyle Korver has been shut down by the Warriors in the NBA Finals for a second straight year

Had Curry not come along, we might be talking about Klay Thompson-who moonlights playing all-league defense-as the greatest shooter of all time. James was frustrated by the overturned offensive foul on the Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durantwith less than a minute remaining in regulation, which was changed to a blocking foul on James following a replay review by the official, and not JR Smith's lack of recognition in the final seconds, sources said. Kevin Durant drained six treys en route to 43 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists but he really didn't get much support from his teammates.

The Game 1 loss was "very emotional" for the National Basketball Association star. That series, one where the Warriors led 3-1, changed when they couldn't finish the job while being presented with serious adversity.

And they may stay that way.

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

The Warriors demolished anything left in yet another of their signature third-quarter runs, extending their lead to 21 points before winning 108-85 in Cleveland.

"I have no idea at this point", LeBron said after Golden State swept Cleveland in the NBA Finals.

The Golden State Warriors secured back-to-back championships on Friday night as they completed a sweep over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

It may have been the final game in Cleveland for the 33-year-old, who is expected to opt out of his $35.6 million contract for 2019 next month and become a free agent. He plopped down in a chair and draped a towel over his broad shoulders, looking like a boxer on a corner stool.

Dutch queen's sister dies in Argentina
Her body was found Wednesday night by her mother María del Carmen Cerruti and a friend of Zorreguieta, said news agency EFE. Her death comes 10 months after the death of Maxima's father Jorge Zorreguieta , who died at the age of 89 from cancer.

He scored 23 points in Game 4, by far his lowest-output game of the series.

Heading into the playoffs, the Warriors appeared vulnerable.

Durant said at the time the leadup to his decision was the most challenging few weeks of his career but after the success he has enjoyed over the last two seasons he is not about to second guess his move.

Rodney Hood was the only other Cavalier in double-figures - also adding 10 points - but it took the four-year vet 14 shots to get them, finishing 4-of-14 from the floor to go with eight boards and a pair of steals.

"Whether it's opponents, whether it's different coaches panning for us, whether it's the fans, the media that hate us, it feels good when you're the team that everybody's gunning for". They fell to the Warriors in Houston. I think it's been our most inconsistent season.

That set up another reunion with James and the Cavs.

Stephen Curry #30 of the Golden State Warriors celebrates with the Larry O'Brien Trophy after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers during Game Four of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena on June 8, 2018 in Cleveland, Ohio. "Going through it, the trial and error is only going to make you a better player".

Win or lose tonight, when the final buzzer goes off in the Q, LeBron James better be receiving a standing ovation.
