Warriors sweep aside Cavaliers to capture third National Basketball Association title in four seasons

Warriors sweep aside Cavaliers to capture third National Basketball Association title in four seasons

Well you'd never believe it, but the Golden State Warriors completed the sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers Friday night to win their second straight NBA Finals Championship, and their third out of four years.

James, meanwhile, had 23 points, seven rebounds and eight assists - and precious little help - as he became a Finals sweep victim for a second time. He can do so either by signing elsewhere as a free agent after July 1 or opting into the final season of his current Cleveland contract and forcing a trade to a new home. One thing is for sure, though: In the immediate aftermath of Friday's loss, James doesn't seem like he knows what his next move is.

Fans chanted "M-V-P" to James in the final minutes, sensing his possible exit again. Last year, the Cavs came out on fire, scoring 49 points in the first quarter of Game 4 on the way to a 137-116 win.

"Sometimes you can give everything you've got and still come up short and that's what happened to us", Lue said. "We keep waking up every day and trying to get better and we end up here". Local cable channels including ABC are included in the Hulu Live TV package, so you'll be able to quickly join in time to watch the Warriors Rockets Game 4 online.

"This is about the journey".

"It's just about the journey, all season", Durant said.

"It's a journey that's better than the destination". James paid his dues to Cleveland.

The Warriors, who boast what may be the greatest offensive juggernaut that basketball has ever known, used a dominant third quarter to build a 21-point lead that left the Cavaliers' hopes of a series comeback in their wake.

Curry scored 20 points in the first half, hitting 4-of-6 3-point shots, as Golden State seized a 61-52 half-time edge.

LeBron James finished with another triple-double of 33 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds, but he was very passive late - he shot just once in the final five minutes - and failed to make a concerted effort to fight through screens in order to guard Durant over that same stretch.

Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook has set the over/under for James's point total at 36.5 points.
