RAW: Fans celebrate Warriors' NBA Finals win (no audio)

  • Reliving Kevin Durant’s top-10 playoff moments leading him to the verge of his second NBA title

An overpowering Golden State Warriors squad captured its third NBA crown in four seasons on Friday, routing Cleveland 108-85 to complete a sweep in the best-of-seven NBA Finals. Durant stated his case by registering his first playoff triple-double - 20 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists - two nights after nearly singlehanded destroying the Cavs with 43 points, a playoff career-high, and 13 rebounds. And may be for a while. The second was that it would be the final game James plays for the Cavaliers. According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN and Sam Amick of USA Today, James has been playing with a bone contusion in his right hand since the Finals opener.

"I had some tough problems going on throughout the course of the season, and I probably could have folded myself, but I wasn't going to do that", he said. Can't get enough of this feeling. 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. Game 3 of this year's Finals brought in a total audience of 17.9 million sets of eyeballs watching on ABC on Wednesday night. So you have that crew.

The Cavs' talisman reportedly suffered the injury after punching a blackboard in frustration after his side spurned an opportunity to win in the final seconds. "So they have a lot of talent".

The final buzzer of Game 4 served to tell the Warriors something they already knew.

Will the aging superstar leave the Cleveland Cavaliers a second time, as he did earlier in his career when he joined the Miami Heat and won two championships?

"Girl in the Spider’s Web" trailer is #MeToo revenge fantasy
The Girl in the Spider's Web is directed by Fede Álvarez , who previously helmed 2016's horror hit Don't Breathe . The film co-stars Lakeith Stanfield from "Atlanta", Sverrir Gudnason , Sylvia Hoeks and Stephen Merchant .

To this point, 131 have tried, and 131 have failed.

The Warriors are the first NBA team to grab a 3-0 lead in the NBA Finals in back-to-back seasons, but they need no reminder how last year's Game 4 in Cleveland turned out. "So what do we have to do?"

Cavs have four players tally double figures in the Game 4 loss. Is it we have to have our minds into it a little bit more? "I let the emotions get the best of me".

Now James, a free agent, has a hard off-season decision. "He's just an unbelievable human being, and I'm incredibly lucky to coach him". "We still have to keep that enthusiasm, trust and belief that we can get this thing done".

Bottom line: James needs better, smarter teammates.

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35) warms up as the basketball team's practiced during the NBA Finals, Wednesday, June 7, 2018, in Cleveland.

"I know that's a storyline", Kerr said during his postgame news conference. It's good for you to be around guys like this.

This much is clear: Golden State has no designs on giving up its throne. That's what GMs and presidents and certain players, it's not every player.

"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.

Months of weight will lifted off him once the Warriors, who haven't lost four straight games since 2013, are crowned again. Green, McGee and Andre Iguodala were defensive forces all night, tag-teaming James, while combining for 26 points, too. "They had an awesome run".
