Warriors beat Cavaliers for third National Basketball Association title in four years

Warriors beat Cavaliers for third National Basketball Association title in four years

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. He secured his first playoff triple-double of 20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in Friday night's Game 4.

Regardless of the Finals MVP, the Dubs dynasty is real.

If the Golden State Warriors win the National Basketball Association championship on Friday night, it'll mark the earliest start to the offseason in more than three decades.

"Going into this season, I don't think anybody could have guessed or predicted the ups and downs and the roller coaster we've been on", Curry said Thursday as the Warriors prepped for the possible clincher. "Just knowing the work you put in paid off means something".

"It was definitely the toughest", head coach Steven Kerr said in comparing the three championships.

The last time a team was swept in the finals was 2007, when the Spurs took out James' Cavaliers. Three titles and four consecutive Finals appearances has seen to that, even if they've enjoyed an embarrassment of riches these last two seasons.

Golden State claimed the sixth crown in club history, matching the Chicago Bulls for third on the all-time list. "KD's been incredible these last two years, especially in the Finals, and so deserving of back-to-back Finals MVPs".

Now James, a free agent, has a hard off-season decision.

Golden State have won all three against the Cavaliers with the final game finishing in Cleveland for the second time and with speculation LeBron James could leave Cleveland.

James broke his hand by punching a whiteboard inside the locker room after the game, sources told ESPN. The final score doesn't matter.

According to reports, Inés Zorreguieta worked for the civil service in Buenos Aires, and had been suffering from depression. Maxima, 47, who's originally from Argentina, was quoted in a statement by the royal household as "very shocked and sad".

James left to a standing ovation after playing 41 of the game's first 44 minutes.

"I didn't want to bother him", Lue said of Francona, who attended Game 3. "But what's most important for me is bringing one trophy back to Northeast Ohio". "So I don't have an answer for you right now". He departed in 2010 for Miami before returning in 2014.

"I hope that doesn't sound arrogant". On this road trip, I've already missed four of his games. Which ended up being a good decision, because he scored 46 points and later advanced to his eighth straight NBA Finals.

For Golden State, this adds to their 2015 and 2017 titles with Curry stating afterwards that his side "just know how to win". "Getting up every day, going to work with these guys, it's awesome".

Cavs guard JR Smith ran down the clock with seconds to go, under the apparent belief that Cleveland were ahead. His only second-half field goal came with 5:40 remaining in the season and the Cavs trailing by 28. So if you make a mistake, they're going to make you pay.
