Warriors sweep Cavs for 3rd National Basketball Association title in 4 years

6 jokes Le Bron James has made despite the Cavs rough NBA Finals 6 jokes Le Bron James has made despite the Cavs rough NBA Finals

His eighth straight appearance didn't go well either, and now there's uncertainty where the superstar will play next. He finished his remarkable playoff run by scoring 23 points, pulling down seven rebounds and dishing off eight assists.

It was the fourth year in a row the Warriors met Cleveland in the finals.

The Wine & Gold will need a showing like that on Friday if they hope to stay alive this year.

"It's an unbelievable feeling to come here with a mission and get the job done", Curry said.

Golden State outscored Cleveland 25-13 in the third quarter, James managing only four points - all on free throws - in the period, and the Warriors rolled through the final minutes to another coronation. "It has been our most hard season", he added.

LeBron James confirmed a post-game report that he injured his hand in frustration after Game 1 and played the rest of the Finals with a hand contusion.

When James left Game 4 for the last time he bumped fists with some Warriors players, but avoided using his right hand. He plopped down in a chair and draped a towel over his broad shoulders, looking like a boxer on a corner stool.

Heading into the playoffs, the Warriors appeared vulnerable.

"We asked him 'how's your knee?'"

Prosecutors have since filed charges of child abuse and falsifying records against four county social workers in Gabriel's death. His girlfriend, 34-year-old Pearl Fernandez, was sentenced to life in prison without parole after pleading guilty in February.

Kerr used 27 different starting lineups during the regular season, which ended with a head-scratching 40-point loss to Utah.

James has a $35.6 million player option for next season. But Golden State, catching a break when Houston star guard Chris Paul was forced to sit with a hamstring injury, showed a champion's poise by winning two straight.

That set up another reunion with James and the Cavs.

From three games he's averaging 37.7 points, nine rebounds, 10.7 assists, 1.7 steals and 46 minutes per game.

With the Warriors one game away from another championship, this National Basketball Association season is as over as the biggest rap beef of 2018.

No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit in the playoffs and there are many expecting the Warriors to wrap up the championship tonight.

That wasn't the only way that Curry entered the record books in this series.

James, 33, has carried the Cavs all season to the finals and is averaging just shy of a triple-double per game this series. According to data from NBA Advanced Stats and Sportsradar's shot difficulty model that takes into account specific information about the shooters, defenders, shot location, distance to defenders and actions prior to the shot, Durant scored 16 more points than expected, given his shot selection.

"Hubie was injured when he bumped his knee on a table during pregame", ESPN said in a statement. He was treated by a medical staff on site and taken to the hospital.
