Dub Dynasty: Warriors sweep Cavs for second straight title

Stephen Curry

The Cleveland Cavaliers hope to avoid the sweep as they battle the Golden State Warriors in Game 4 of the NBA Finals at the Quicken Loans Arena on Friday.

Overcoming obstacles all season long, the Warriors were not going to be denied and won the fourth straight finals matchup against Cleveland easily. JR Smith scored 10 points, and with his first 3 passed Derek Fisher (285 3s) for eighth place on the NBA's all-time playoff 3-point list.

James didn't spend time shaking hands with his opponents (he did that when he checked out of the game for the final time), but he did say goodbye to a few folks as he made his way to the locker room. "In Game 1, I could feel a difference in intensity and that was the main thing throughout and even if you just look at the numbers, playing against some of the best teams in the league, we had a really good defensive grading, field goal percentage defense". 2013 - 2014: Lost in Round 1 of the Playoffs to Los Angeles Clippers in Game 7.

On the night, the reigning Finals MVP went 15-of-23 from the floor, including 6-of-9 from beyond the arc and a ideal 7-of-7 from the line, adding 13 boards, seven assists and a steal in the victory.

Curry said after the win that the team used its experience in Game 4 against the Cavaliers past year - also down 3-0 to the Warriors, they won by 19 to force one more game - to prepare, knowing they'd face a focused opponent.

Kevin Durant posted a triple-double with 20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

"This is so hard to do and doing it three out of four years is incredible", guard Klay Thompson said. This summer, LeBron James holds a player option he could use to leave Cleveland - and many expect him to.

James played in every game for Cleveland - 82 in the regular season (something he'd never done before) and 22 in the playoffs.

James averaged 34 points in the 2018 Finals with 8.5 boards and 10 assists. With his 43-point performance in Game 3, Durant joined Jordan and Shaquille O'Neal as the only players to score at least 25 points in their first 13 finals games. According to Sportsradar's shot-making model, Durant has scored 21 more points than expected across the entire series.

"And he goes "oh I'm good, we've only got one more game". Andre Iguodala returned to the court and chipped in with eight points in 22 minutes of action. His nine quick points sent the Warriors to a 13-3 lead.
