Warriors sweep Cavaliers to repeat as National Basketball Association champions

Smith mistake

The Golden State Warriors completed a four-game sweep of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night to capture their third National Basketball Association championship in four years. Kevin Durant had a triple-double with 20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, and was named the MVP of the Finals.

Kevin Durant (31.7 points, 10.3 rebounds, 6.7 assists per game) comes into Saturday's matchup as the Finals MVP favorite following a 43-point explosion in a Game 3 victory.

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. "I had emotions of you just don't get an opportunity like this on the road versus Golden State to be able to get a Game 1, and I let the emotions get the best of me".

The pregame air had a striking similarity to last year, when the Cavaliers, 1-3 against the Warriors over the past four years, forced a Game 5.

Whittaker favoured in non-title rematch with Romero for UFC 225
UFC main event fights in pay-per-view events have been dropping like flies these past few months and UFC 225 is no different. According to Okamoto , the UFC is now working with Romero and Whittaker's camps to try to keep the main event together.

Overcoming obstacles all season long, the Warriors were not going to be denied and won the fourth straight finals matchup against Cleveland easily.

The health of James' hand likely would not have had much affect on the outcome of the series, a four-game sweep by the Warriors.

"Post-game, after Game 1, very emotional", James said. Green, McGee and Andre Iguodala were defensive forces all night, tag-teaming James, while combining for 26 points, too.

"I'm not sure LeBron knows what's going to do with this one".

They built a lead as big as 13. Curry, trying to draw a foul against J.R. Smith beyond the arc on the right side, jumped up and forward, trying to draw contact against the former Knick while heaving a prayer - maybe more a novena. Almost two-thirds of his shots in the playoffs (64 percent) been tightly or very tightly defended (with the defender four feet away or closer), according to NBA.com. But he's not going anywhere, even mentally, until this series is over.
