Golden State Warriors Win NBA Championship, Beat Cavs 108-85

"Even when you do defend them well, they've got guys like Steph and KD who can make unbelievable shots".

The 33-year-old plans to consider everything once the season ends, but he offered some clues about what he'll consider before making his next move, a decision that will dwarf any other National Basketball Association news in July.

Thompson had all 10 of his points in the third period, during which Golden State outscored the Cavaliers 25-13.

Asked before the game if he wanted to win a title in four games in Cleveland or in five games at home, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said, "They both sound awesome to me". "Sometimes you can give everything you've got and still come up short and that's what happened to us", Lue said.

This is insane. Everybody knows of James' competitiveness, but to be so frustrated with a loss that he would punch a board?

One game at a time may be a sports cliche. "It's very different. You don't have the aircraft carriers, you don't have Shaq and Patrick Ewing and Hakeem". And I let the emotions get the best of me.

In Game 3, a pivotal swing game, Durant exploded for 43 points, including a deep dagger 3-pointer late in the contest to seal the victory.

CLEVELAND - Kevin Durant was named the 2018 NBA Finals MVP on Friday night after the Golden State Warriors finished a sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers with a 108-85 blowout win.

Became the ninth team to sweep a finals and first to win consecutive titles since James did it with Miami in 2012 and 2013.

"I have no idea at this point", James said. I can only imagine right now.

Fans chanted "M-V-P" to James in the final minutes, sensing his possible exit again. Tonight, he addressed why he returned in 2014.

Rescue teams have been searching frantically for survivors and victims in the ravaged landscape, which is covered in ash and lava. That's the length of time officials had said earlier that some victims might have survived.

I selfishly was hoping Durant would leave.

Stephen Curry, who was in the running for the award, registered a game-high 37 points and knocked down seven 3-pointers in Game 4.

"We used the experience past year to our advantage", Curry said. "It makes us come to work and try to play at that championship level every single day, and that's the hardest part".

"He obviously has some health issues he's still working through, but we'll get it done".

James once again gave a heroic effort, but it was not enough to stem the overwhelming and balanced talent of Golden State, which came into the series looking for a sweep after Cleveland denied them the opportunity previous year for a ideal playoffs run.

When the Cavaliers made a flurry of mid-season trades to remake the back half of their roster, it was widely thought that the moves were an upgrade. "They made some mini-runs, but over the course of 48 minutes our will took over".

James, most definitely, does not want to get swept in the NBA Finals for a second time.

Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James revealed that he played the last three games of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors with a "self-inflicted" injured hand.

James was removed with 4:03 remaining and congratulated the Warriors before taking a seat on the bench.
