The Larry O’Brien Trophy Stays in Golden State as Dubs Sweep Cavs
The Golden State Warriors are your 2018 NBA Champions as they pummel the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game Four 108-85,
It almost felt like a formality heading into Game four but with any LeBron James led team you can never count them out taking a game or two in a seven game series. However, in this series he just didn't have the horses to help him compete in this one.
In this game it was only a nine point deficit for Cleveland at half time but in the second half it was a different story as Golden State could taste another title they clamped down defensively. They only scored 25 points, yet they were able to hold the Cavs to just 13 points. A nine point margin quickly increased to 21 heading to the fourth.
In the fourth quarter it was all but over, the Dubs could taste it as they were out hustling, out muscling Cleveland, and the Cavs looked defeated.
Steph Curry rebounded from his Game Three struggles as he scored 20 points in the first half, 37 all together and he was not the Finals MVP. That honor went to Kevin Durant who put together a triple-double, 20 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists.
As for the Cavaliers, the questions are already beginning to flood in as to where LeBron may end up next season. For the game, he was the high scorer with 23 points, seven rebounds, and eight assists.Kevin Love pitched in with 13 points and nine rebounds. In addition, we found out after the game that LeBron James had punched a blackboard in frustration after Game One of the Finals and from what he says he played three games with a partially broken right hand.
This was the third championship in four years for the Golden State Warriors.
