Golden State Warriors win title, LeBron James reveals broken hand
LeBron can’t save himself, so he’ll leave Cleveland after losing NBA Finals
10 June, 2018, 02:46
Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James was understandably noncommittal about his return to the team following a loss to Golden State that clinched a second straight National Basketball Association championship for the Warriors on Friday night.
James, perhaps playing his final game for the Cavaliers, had his least productive outing of the series, recording 23 points, seven rebounds and eight assists in his eighth consecutive trip to the Finals.
Curry said after the win that the team used its experience in Game 4 against the Cavaliers past year - also down 3-0 to the Warriors, they won by 19 to force one more game - to prepare, knowing they'd face a focused opponent. 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.
It's the second Finals sweep of James' career, the first coming with the Cavaliers in 2007 against the San Antonio Spurs (also the most recent year any team was swept in the Finals).
The Warriors have morphed into a shot-making, scoreboard-breaking behemoth stacked from top to bottom with Hall of Fame-level talent like Durant, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. 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.
Simona Halep speaks out after winning the French Open But Stephens can not easily crack off that side, having good sensibility even when she's forced to defend from the left angle. When Stephens is keeping the ball in play and aggressive defensively, she's one of the tougher players on tour to beat.
The Cavs had successfully faced down elimination three times this season but were unable to mount any threat of a comeback in this one as the Warriors simply had too much firepower.
"I have no idea at this point", James said. He buried 7 of 15, and Golden State connected on 14 of 38, including 9 of 17 en route to a 61-52 halftime advantage.
"It makes us better".
Ultimately, not looking their best at times this season might make them better.
Durant is expected to opt out of his contract but he's already said publicly that he plans to re-sign with Golden State. "When you have a goal and you're able to accomplish that goal, it actually - for me personally, it made me even more hungry to continue to try to win championships". "We want to keep this thing going as long as we can". The man is a social media savant, and will use his skills to the best of his abilities. "It's an unbelievable feeling to come here with a mission and get the job done", Curry said. James was subbed out for Cedi Osman with 4:03 remaining, shook hands with a few of the Warriors players on his way to the bench, and walked off the court shortly after time expired.
