Golden State, which has won eight of its last nine NBA Finals games against the Cavs, is a back-to-back champion for the first time in franchise history and has captured the title in three of the last four years.
Regardless of what appeared to be an uninspired Cleveland effort in Game 4, the Warriors were magnificent.
Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr encourages his. "I think as long as he feels comfortable doing it long term, we want him". "All season, getting up every day and going to work with these guys", Durant said in an interview with ABC's Doris Burke.
Cleveland couldn't take advantage late in the second quarter when Curry, Thompson and Green all went to the bench, leaving Kevin Durant on the floor with a cast of role players. "For us to be able to be here again, we can't get enough of this feeling".
This year, there's been a toughness to go along with the finesse.
Speaking to media after Game 4, James confirmed the injury.
Stephen Curry has done about everything there is to do in the National Basketball Association.
As they have all season, the Warriors used an overwhelming third quarter to clinched the win. They traded Kyrie Irving against LeBron's wishes and whittled down their return for the star point guard to spare parts and the No. 8 pick - a valuable asset, but one that didn't help the 2018 Cavs compete in these playoffs.
They had reached their destination: dynasty.
They did it the hard way, without question.
Head to head, the under is 10-3 in the last 13 games overall and the Warriors are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
James said his emotions got the best of him as he punched a whiteboard in the locker room and called the injury "self-inflicted".
Kevin Durant won his second straight NBA Finals MVP trophy.
The Warriors completed a sweep of the Cavs with a 108-85 victory on Friday.
"For a lot of different reasons", he said.
Don't be surprised if the Cavaliers look like a brand new team next season. Yet the cumulative effect on multiple journeys adds up, and we have felt that this year.
"Then in my absence, Larry Drew and [Mike] Longabardi, and Phil Handy, [James] Posey, D-Jones [Damon Jones], Vitaly [Potapenko], Jim Boylan, they did a hell of a job just holding it down until I got back. But our guys sense the finish line, and they turned it on right from the beginning of the playoffs defensively".
The 33-year-old, who came back to the Cavs and ended the city's 52-year championship drought in 2016, is expected to opt out of his $35.6 million contract and become a free agent. But if things get rocky next season, the Warriors will also have the experiences from this year to draw upon. 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.
