Golden State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers - 6/8/18 Free NBA Finals Game 4 Pick, Odds, and Prediction

These two get mentioned together because they are the definition of a long shot.

They had reached their destination: dynasty.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were brushed aside by the Golden State Warriors last night, completing a four-game sweep in the best-of-seven NBA finals to be crowned the best team in USA basketball for the second year in a row. "These guys aren't just incredibly talented, but they're selfless, they love each other and play for each other, and you see the result".

It was certainly a controversial decision but KD immediately played down the significance of it after the game.

If Game 2 will be remembered as Stephen Curry going wild then Game 3 was the Kevin Durant show. "Then the challenges that faced us". His eighth straight appearance didn't go well, either, and now there's uncertainty where the superstar will play next as he faces free agency.

Following the game, he sat quietly in his corner locker with a towel draped over his head.

James reportedly sustained the injury when he punched a blackboard following the Cavs Game 1 meltdown.

"I had emotions that the game was taken away from us, you don't get an opportunity like this on the road, versus Golden State, to win game one, and I let the emotions get the best of me".

Act IV between the Warriors and Cavs featured a drama-filled Game 1. Do his children decide they just want to stay in Northeast Ohio?

It seems like a lot of National Basketball Association players really want LeBron James to play on their team. Yet Golden State won anyway with relative ease because Durant took over the game, accounting for nearly 40 percent of the Warriors' scoring output while also leading the team in rebounds (13) and assists (7).

It said the lahars could sweep down the mountain laden with concrete, rocks up to a meter (yard) in diameter and tree trunks. Officials said the volcanic eruption still presented a danger and could cause more mud and pyroclastic flows.

Ahead of the bout, Punk revealed he simply told Ronda to have fun: "The only thing I told her was to just have fun". There's been 'hey, if you ever want to do anything.' I know what this is going to sound like to a lot of people.

Durant won his second consecutive Finals MVP, getting seven of the 11 votes with Curry getting the other four.

The Warriors led by as many as 25 points in Game 4 and never trailed after taking a 44-43 lead with 5:44 left in the first half.

After a close battle in game 3 of the 2018 NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cavs by a score of 110-102. "The one thing that I've always done is considered, obviously, my family". The loss-James has now played in nine finals and won three-means that the debate about whether the 33-year-old is the best player of all time rages on. At the end of the day, the Warriors and Curry are the champions, so an additional award doesn't seem to matter much to them. We can't get enough of this feeling. Do his sons want to follow in his footsteps, and go to St. Vincent-St.

Months of weight will lifted off him once the Warriors, who haven't lost four straight games since 2013, are crowned again.

"My goal is still to win as many titles as possible, no question", James wrote.

Hobbled by a Friday night ender, the last game of the 2018 NBA Finals is not actually that reflective of how well the playoffs fared. James averaged 34 points in his 13th postseason, his second-highest total.

"They move at such a pace, and they have five guys on the floor that can dribble, pass and shoot", Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said Friday night, a few minutes after the season ended and a few minutes into the Warriors' celebration down the hall.

"We know they're going to throw some insane punches and we've got to be able to weather the storm and their runs and the crowd and the atmosphere and all that".

The NBA season started earlier than the previous norms this year, part of the league's initiative to add days to the schedule in order to limit back-to-backs and help get players more rest during the 82-game regular season grind.
