Golden State Warriors: 3 takeaways from Game 4 vs. Cavaliers
LeBron can’t save himself, so he’ll leave Cleveland after losing NBA Finals
10 June, 2018, 05:50
The fourth straight NBA Finals matchup between the two rivals proved to be the most lopsided as the Warriors won the latest best-of-seven series in four games.
For the second time in his career, LeBron James suffered a sweep in the NBA Finals as the Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second straight year to win back-to-back championships. Warriors retail managers tried to pre-order as much championship merchandise as they could.
If LeBron can't make history by coming back from a 0-3 deficit in the NBA Finals, this will likely be the last time he'll wear a Cavs uniform. This feels more like reality.
"I hope he stays", Tyronn Lue said. "It's just the talent we have and the experience we've gained". "But it was hard".
The Warriors completed their second straight championship victory by inflicting the ninth sweep in National Basketball Association history and first since 2007, when the San Antonio Spurs swept the Cavaliers and a young LeBron James. "You know, I watched that team a lot during the year". LeBron will be on the market in which he may very well leave Cleveland yet again. I bet they would look for a first-round pick in that trade. With the defeat, the focus turns to LeBron James because he's in all likelihood going to be a free agent this summer. "They had an incredible run". They have two former MVPs in Curry and Durant, All-Stars in Green and Thompson, not to mention a stacked bench, including a past Finals MVP in Andre Iguodala. Steph went out and recruited K.D. "I was there in the Hamptons (at the Durant recruiting session) when we had that discussion". He set out to win a championship for Cleveland and he did just that. You guys can write about MVP. He addressed that criticism in an interview with Yahoo Sports following the Warriors' title-clinching victory Friday over the Cavaliers.
Kevin Durant, who finished with a triple double of 20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in Game 4, was named Finals MVP for the second consecutive year. His right hand, which he says he injured after punching a blackboard as the result of a frustrating Game 1 loss, needed icing, too.
In our Game 4 takeaways, we will try to ignore the future and focus on the present for one more day.
Extended footage from the Cavs' bench following the play showed James initially despondent, before growing incredulous upon learning his team still had a timeout during the sequence. He fights and competes to the end. "It's going to be shots from all over the place", Curry said.
"It's tough", Lue said of the challenge of defending the Warriors. "They made some mini-runs, but over the course of 48 minutes our will took over". That's the beauty of their team. His passive play was shocking and in the decisive third quarter it was if James was saying "do you see what I have to work with?"
Friday, June 8: Golden State at Cleveland, 9 p.m.
Unlike their past celebrations, the Warriors won't be doing a post-parade rally this time around.
Now, it's the time that Cleveland Cavaliers fans have anxious about: the offseason. "But after a game like that, I'm not in any position to talk about that". "Not just the playoff run, this entire season".
