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

Golden State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers - 6/8/18 Free NBA Finals Game 4 Pick, Odds, and Prediction LeBron can’t save himself, so he’ll leave Cleveland after losing NBA Finals

Durant said he enjoys playing for Golden State. Fresh off an unexpected run to the Eastern Conference Finals where it took the Cavaliers to seven games, Boston will have its two best players back next year when Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward return from season-ending injuries.

But it was Warriors forward Kevin Durant who was named the finals' Most Valuable Player for the second consecutive year.

It was the fourth year in a row the Warriors and Cavaliers met in the finals, Golden State winning in 2015 and the past two years. This year seems so different, though.

He managed that in 2016 when Cleveland came back from 3-1 down against the Warriors to win.

The sheer ease of their disposal of the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers in the championship series sent a loud and clear message to the league that they are not about to vacate their perch any time soon.

This year, there's been a toughness to go along with the finesse.

"I think it's never a success in the postseason when you lose, not for me", said James, who was noncommittal about his future afterwards. They overcame an 11-point deficit in Game 1 of this year's NBA Finals and rallied from 13 points down to beat the Cavs in Game 3 on Wednesday.

"To win in a sweep, it feels pretty good", Durant said. The Warriors haven't been at their absolute best in this series but they proved they can still win even if Curry shoots one of 10 from the three-point line. "I mean I have no idea at this point".

According to the man himself, LeBron James played through a broken hand he inflicted upon himself out of frustration. Those performances couldn't get the job done, either. But it was the harsh ending they got, nonetheless.

They did it the hard way, without question.

Of course, a few tweets had to reference J.R. Smith's colossal blunder from Game 1, when he apparently didn't know the score at the end of regulation.

The 29-year-old superstar took the honor after putting together a triple-double to help complete the sweep for the Golden State Warriors in their third National Basketball Association championship in four years. The Warriors lead the series 3-0 with Game 4 on Thursday. There's no shame in losing to what Scott Sargent referred to as the "Voltron Warriors" replete with Kevin Durant's 7-foot frame as the robot's destructive head. "All season, getting up every day and going to work with these guys", Durant said in an interview with ABC's Doris Burke.
