What time, channel is Golden State Warriors vs

LeBron James

The fourth consecutive NBA Finals match-up between the two rivals proved to be the most lopsided as the Warriors won the latest best-of-seven series in four games, which could mark the end of James' second tenure with the Cavs.

The Cleveland Cavaliers trailed by 25 points and LeBron James was showered with chants of MVP as he was replaced with under four minutes to go in Game 4 of an NBA Finals sweep.

Curry top scored but it was Kevin Durant who was named Finals MVP for the second year in a row, adding 20 points, 12 rebounds and a post-season career high of 10 assists.

Durant averaged 28.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game in the series.

While the Warriors are at the top of the National Basketball Association mountain with a third championship in the past four years, they face some free agency questions of their own.

"I let the emotions get the best of me and pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand", James said in postgame press conference Yesterday. As a team, the Cavaliers shot just 43 percent from the field and nine of 31 from the three-point line which was good enough to keep them in the game due to their defense, but they just had no answer for Kevin Durant who scorched them for a game-high 43 points on 15 of 23 shooting.

Mindful of last year's missed chance at a ideal playoff run, the Warriors expect their toughest NBA Finals challenge from Cleveland on Friday, June 8 (Saturday, June 9) as they chase a series sweep.

Merkel said on Saturday there must first be progress on a Ukraine peace plan before there is any talk about readmitting Moscow. She said: "Where we disagree with our allies on something it is right that we say so, and air the issue openly and frankly".

Kevin Durant picked up his second consecutive NBA Finals Most Valuable Player award on Friday along with another championship but that does not mean the Golden State Warriors forward is content. The Warriors started the game on a 13-3 run, fixated on avoiding a repeat of last year's Game 4 that saw Cleveland force the series back to Oracle Arena. Will another team put together a roster to counter the competitive imbalance created the day Durant joined the Warriors?

"For me, tonight will be tough", James said.

Golden State opened the game laser-focused on the prospect of a sweep. Those performances couldn't get the job done, either.

"When you make mistakes they make you pay", he said, "because they're already more talented than you are but they also have the minds behind it, too, and they also have the championship DNA". He said that James is not using the injury as an excuse but chose to keep it quiet to prevent the Warriors from knowing about it.

"Even when you do defend them well, you've still got guys like Steph and K.D. and Klay (Thompson) who can make unbelievable shots, even when you play the best of defense".

A few days ago, LeBron spoke candidly about why he left the Cavaliers in 2010 - because the team wasn't good enough. "That's the only thing that matters to us".
