Warriors thump Cavaliers to complete NBA Finals sweep

Warriors thump Cavaliers to complete NBA Finals sweep

The Golden State Warriors ended the 2017-18 NBA season with a four-game sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals on Friday, allowing the basketball world to shift its attention to free agency.

The fourth consecutive NBA Finals match-up between the two rivals proved to be the most lopsided as the Warriors clinched the best-of-seven series in the minimum number of games with a 108-85 victory in Cleveland to repeat as champions. The Warriors lead this year's NBA Finals 3-0. His eighth appearance in a row didn't go well either, and now there's uncertainty where the superstar will play next.

LeBron James played through the NBA Finals with a serious right hand injury that he sustained after Game 1, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst. What exactly does he have to do to win an MVP in the Finals, coach Steve Kerr was asked. James scored 51 points in Game 1, going 7-of-16 from the field on shots from 10 feet and out in Game 1.He struggled shooting from such distances in the remaining three games, going a collective 5-of-19.

When James first left the Cavs in 2010 to join Miami, where he won two titles, it sparked riots in Cleveland as locals burned replicas of his No 23 jersey and hurled rocks at a 10-story banner of him that towered over the city.

This means the more time they spend above land, the more devastation they can wreak with rainfall and storm-induced damages. Rainfall, on average , increased 24 percent. "That has serious implications for inland flooding and urban infrastructure".

The Cavs won one fewer game in the regular season and one fewer game in the Finals than they did a year ago, when Kyrie Irving was here.

Where will LeBron James be playing next season?

Then the league's best team tightened the screws on Cleveland in the third quarter, outscoring the Cavs 25-13 and prompting Golden State fans to begin those drawn-out "War-eee-orrss" chants that provide a flawless musical accompaniment to their 3-point barrages. "For us to be able to be here again, we can't get enough of this feeling".

This was not the ending he nor the Cavs' fans deserved, not after the finest four years this organization will ever enjoy, courtesy of him. Cleveland took a 13-point lead in the first half as LeBron continued his brilliance. It was a rough way for them to go out, especially after how close Game 1 was.

In some ways the Cavaliers never recovered after almost upsetting Golden State on the road in Game 1 of the series.

Yet after falling behind 3-2 to the Rockets in the Western Conference Finals, the Warriors prevailed, sparked by their unparalleled talent but also a sense of historical understanding.

When James left Game 4 for the last time he bumped fists with some Warriors players, but avoided using his right hand. Golden State will be looking to retool a roster that, despite its dominance, might require some modification.
