Warriors Sweep the Cavaliers, Win Third Championship in Four Years
After a heart break Game 1 defeat, the Cleveland Cavaliers were really never in it.
On Friday night, the Golden State Warriors put the Cavs out of their misery, sweeping them off their home floor by a score of 108-85 in a Game 4 blowout. Outscoring the Cavaliers by a score of 25-13 in the third frame, the quarter that has defined the 2018 Warriors playoff run, Golden State has secured their third championship in the last four years.
Led by a 37-point performance by Stephen Curry, and a triple-double for the repeating NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant, the Warriors once again proved to be the class of the NBA. Overcoming trials and tribulations, an a mass alottment of injuries, the Warriors persevered and came out victorious yet again.
“This is so hard to do and doing it three out of four years is incredible,” guard Klay Thompson said.
Meanwhile, LeBron James has yet another Finals loss on his Hall of Fame worthy resume. Averaging 34-points, 8.5-rebounds, and ten assists for the series, his teammates couldn’t provide him with the necessary help to not only get over the hump, but to even secure a single win. What makes his performance even more impressive is that the Cleveland superstar played the final three games of the series with a broken hand. The 33-year old is expected to opt out of his $35.6-million option for next season and enter free agency as his future in Cleveland seems cloudy yet again.
As for the Warriors, it is time to cue the parade yet again as yet another party is coming to the Bay Area!
“Can’t get enough of this feeling so we’re going to celebrate it together,” Curry said.
The Dub dynasty is upon us!
