Stephen Curry's 37 Points Helps The Warriors Win The 2018 NBA Title

  • Warriors sweep away Cavs to win second straight NBA title

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors are now just one win away from another NBA Championship after outlasting the Cavaliers in their own building.

LeBron James has said he "pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand" after sustaining a self inflicted injury after losing game one of the finals against the Golden State Warriors. However, his success rate at the biggest stage is akin to the chances of Andrew Wiggins' 3-point shot finding the bottom of the net - mediocre. This feels more like reality.

"Obviously, from a talent perspective, if you're looking at Golden State from their top five best players to our top five players, you would say they're stacked better than us".

Stephen Curry scored 37 points, Kevin Durant added 20 and a triple double, and the Warriors stamped themselves a dynasty after winning their second straight National Basketball Association title and third in four years Friday night, 108-85 over the Cavaliers to complete a sweep and perhaps drive LeBron James from his home again to chase championships. "They had an fantastic run". He got seven of the 11 votes cast by the media, with Curry getting the other four.

Durant, who was named Finals Most Valuable Player for the second straight year, validated the honor by producing a LeBron-like triple-double: 20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

The health of James' hand likely would not have had much affect on the outcome of the series, a four-game sweep by the Warriors. "And when the competition is as great as it has been every year we've been here facing LeBron and the teams he's been with", Curry said.

Curry was the sentimental favorite for Finals MVP, having seen Durant get it a year ago and Andre Iguodala in 2015. "We won two championships". "You've got two guys with MVPs on their team".

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).

Mike Lee (R-Utah) recently proposed similar legislation, which was also backed by Toomey and Flake, as well as by Sen. Democratic co-sponsors include Mark Warner of Virginia, Brian Schatz of Hawaii and Chris Van Hollen of Maryland.

James reportedly sustained the injury when he punched a blackboard following the Cavs Game 1 meltdown. James finished the postseason having now led his team in points, rebounds and assists on 66 occasions. He fights and competes to the end.

Friday, June 8: Golden State at Cleveland, 9 p.m.

The Warriors buried the Cavaliers in the third quarter, holding them to 13 points on 4-for-17 shooting.

Golden State outscored Cleveland 25-13 in the third quarter, James managing only four points, and the Warriors rolled through the final minutes.

"It's tough", Lue said of the challenge of defending the Warriors. "They can make plays".

'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, and I still want to be in championship mode. "That's the beauty of their team". Curry has six points and Golden State leads Cleveland 10-3. There's no shame in losing to what Scott Sargent referred to as the "Voltron Warriors" replete with Kevin Durant's 7-foot frame as the robot's destructive head. Curry, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala all got in on the action from distance.

James left to a standing ovation after playing 41 of the game's first 44 minutes.

"We've got a lot of three-time, two-time champs in there, and we'll have plenty of time in our lives to discuss that later", Curry said. "I hope that doesn't sound arrogant". On this road trip, I've already missed four of his games. I just appreciate what he's done for us this season.
