Warriors Should Close Out Cavs In Game 4

Warriors Should Close Out Cavs In Game 4

From three games he's averaging 37.7 points, nine rebounds, 10.7 assists, 1.7 steals and 46 minutes per game.

With the Warriors one game away from another championship, this National Basketball Association season is as over as the biggest rap beef of 2018. One onlooker, however, wasn't as kind, shouting "UT's butt" at the superstar forward - an apparent reference to Durant's alma mater, the University of Texas - before adding, "LeBron!"

"Sometimes you just don't win".

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. Sources had told Haynes that there were no real incentives - for Durant or for the team - to take such a drastic reduction in pay this time around.

The Cavaliers have managed to keep two of the three games close - a moral victory if there ever was one. But Golden State, catching a break when Houston star guard Chris Paul was forced to sit with a hamstring injury, showed a champion's poise by winning two straight. As LeBron says, the margin for error is slim but, for the Warriors, it is vast. He could stay a Cavalier or elect to opt out of his current contract and play somewhere else where he thinks he has a chance to win. His performances in seven-game series against the Indiana Pacers and Boston Celtics, his game-winners to take down the Toronto Raptors. Curry, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala all got in on the action from distance. In Game 3, Durant's precision was too much to overcome.

Colangelo also said that his wife had tweeted information that was inaccurate and filled with conjecture. "We believe that Mr. He was hired by the team in April 2016, succeeding Hinkie in the role. "We can not conclude that Mr.

And once again, Kevin Durant-the 2017 Finals MVP-had the ball in his hands, the momentum running down the court, and the swagger to pull up from nearly the same spot behind the three-point line from where he hit a memorable shot previous year. Leading 104-79 with 2:47, coach Steve Kerr called timeout and cleared his bench.

Durant's final points came on a 3-pointer that was shot a few feet back from the spot he pulled up from in Game 3 of last year's Finals.

Why would Game 4 be any different? Every time Cleveland worked its way back into contention, Golden State punched back with a bigger run.

For a Toronto-based sports writer, it is an odd feeling to come to Cleveland and see the home team as heavy underdogs.

Curry also addressed the Durant luxury specifically: "He helps the situation, but we don't walk on the floor like, 'Oh, there is K.D. We're good.' We still have to play and play hard and play well". Everyone in Cleveland seems resigned to the outcome that Golden State will win this series, and likely do it tonight.
