The visiting Warriors made an NBA-record 15-0 start to last year's playoffs with 3 sweeps and a 3-0 lead on the Cavs before suffering their only playoff loss, eventually taking the title in 5 games.

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.

Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James played the last three games of the NBA Finals with a significant and "self-inflicted" right hand injury following the team's Game 1 overtime loss in Oakland.

"Not winning four, but winning Game 4, so that's all we're going to focus on".

LeBron James (23 points) tried to delay the Warriors' nearly inevitable march towards the championship but his Cavs were simply outclassed by a rampant Warriors side. James scored a post-season career-high 51 points in Game 1 of the series.

Harris was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers and played with the team between 2014 and 2016, making the NBA Finals in his rookie season.

Steph Curry led all scorers in Game 4, finishing with 37 points on 12-for-27 shooting, including a 7-for-15 mark from long-range and a ideal 6-of-6 from the stripe - adding six boards, four assists, three steals and three blocked shots. - Who should have won the Finals MVP award?

Then you can look at the basketball reasons.

Now, with the Golden State Warriors leading the series 3-0, I think it's time I wrote this article.

In an effort to provide a more intimate, free-flowing and engaging celebratory event for fans this year, the Warriors have implemented a few changes to the parade route and overall presentation. "I was there in the Hamptons (at the Durant recruiting session) when we had that discussion". Durant is also planning to opt out of his contract and sign a better deal with the Warriors this summer.

When three-time champion James left the game with about four minutes to play, he did so to a standing ovation from a home crowd that were chanting "M-V-P, M-V-P".

"I hope that doesn't sound arrogant. Just try to keep our composure as best we can because close-out games are the hardest things that you can ever experience in the playoffs".

"When you make mistakes they make you pay", he said, "because they're already more talented than you are but they also have the minds behind it, too, and they also have the championship DNA".

James broke his hand by punching a whiteboard inside the locker room after the game, sources told ESPN. And then you've got a guy in Klay (Thompson) who could easily be on a team and carry a team, scored 40 in a quarter before.

Are NBA fans now in line for "The Decision 2", a follow-up to the now infamous media tour James and his entourage staged prior to him leaving Cleveland for Miami in 2010?

"I have no idea at this point", James said. "For us to be back here, with all the injuries we went through, a different journey through the playoffs".
