Warriors sweep Cavs, claim 3rd title in 4 years

Rather than allow Cleveland a chance to breathe new life into the series, Durant stepped up and sent the Cavaliers into a 3-0 hole that no National Basketball Association team has ever come back from. He finished his remarkable playoff run by scoring 23 points, pulling down seven rebounds and dishing off eight assists.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be hoping to stave off elimination and avoid the dreaded series sweep after falling to the Warriors in a 110-102 loss in Game 3. They can make plays.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are facing a seemingly insurmountable deficit in their NBA Finals clash with the Golden State Warriors but said on Thursday the defending champions can still expect plenty of fightback. Curry has six points and Golden State leads Cleveland 10-3.

For the Warriors, with Durant in his second season with Golden State, their team chemistry has only gotten stronger. Kevin Love shot only 4-of-13 from the field. "I was there in the Hamptons (at the Durant recruiting session) when we had that discussion".

ESPN's Brian Windhorst broke the news shortly after the Warriors were crowned champions with a victory in Game 4 on Saturday AEST.

When the Cavaliers made a flurry of mid-season trades to remake the back half of their roster, it was widely thought that the moves were an upgrade. "As long as we're doing the right thing, we're in the right spots, we're helping each other out on defence, it just works for us". They were ahead by so much that Cavs superstar LeBron was finally given a much deserved rest, getting taken out of the game with over four minutes left. That's what this team does. It didn't look like they were going to have enough. Lue chose to play Rodney Hood last night, after benching him for most of the Celtics series.

Its that kind of team performance that has been the Warriors key to success. They led late in Game 1 and had a chance to win in regulation. He also, Durant surpassed veterans Wilt Chamberlain and Elgin Baylor on the NBA's all-time postseason points list, at 17th place with a total of 3,636 points.

James described that Game 1 loss as "very emotional" for him.

This has only been matched by Shaquille O'Neal (first 20) and Michael Jordan (first 21).

But the Spaniard was impressive on Friday, finishing with 35 winners and 19 unforced errors to Del Potro's analysis of 20 and 32. Nadal wrapped up that set by winning the first two points played Thursday and he was on his way, never relenting.

James wore a light cast in private and kept the injury secret to avoid letting Golden State discover he was playing hurt. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial no matter what package you choose, and you can then watch the game live on your computer via the DirecTV Now website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the DirecTV Now app. He clinched a second consecutive Finals MVP award with his triple-double on Friday. He already had more points than in that 11-point outing.

In Game 4, it was Durant again.

You might not know Ezra Shaw by name, but if you read about sports on the internet, you're nearly certainly familiar with his work.

Act IV between the Warriors and Cavs featured a drama-filled Game 1. You let your guard down. He wants to be with us. Start making preparations for celebrations.

For the Cavaliers, this is do or die, on home court.

"We just know how to win", added Stephen Curry.

"That's how you know we're a great team, is when everybody's coming after us", Durant said. "It's an unbelievable feeling to come here with a mission and get the job done", Curry said. "And we answered it and ran right back at them and set the tone for the whole game".

"You get to certain positions and certain spots, and if you give it your all and you're prepared and you don't win, you take it hard".
