The Golden State Warriors, up 3-0 in the best of seven 2018 NBA Finals, can eliminate LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers and capture the NBA championship by winning Game 4 on Friday, June 8, 2018 (6/8/18) for a sweep.

Game 4 was Golden State's lowest scoring game of the Finals (108 points), but their largest victory of the series (plus-23) as they held Cleveland to 85 points. Kevin Durant helped out with a triple-double (20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists) and was named MVP of the finals for the second straight year (though some thought the award should've gone to Curry).

On Friday, the Cavaliers clawed back from an 11-point deficit before pulling in front on a slam dunk from James near the midway mark of the second quarter, but it was just a matter of time before the Warriors took over.

In our Game 4 takeaways, we will try to ignore the future and focus on the present for one more day.

At this point in time, the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, and Philadelphia 76ers are considered to be the top landing spots for James if he chooses to leave Cleveland.

The sweep was the second in Warriors history, duplicating their 1975 feat, and the first in the National Basketball Association since the Cavaliers were beaten in four straight by the San Antonio Spurs in 2007. Durant scored 43 points in that game, including a 33-foot 3-pointer in the final minute to all but clinch the win for the Warriors.

If Trump signs the bill into law, the legislation would resolve that conflict between the state and federal marijuana laws. Passage of the law makes Canada the second country, following Uruguay (2013), to officially legalize marijuana.

This series could very well end up being a sweep for the Golden State Warriors, but when you take a look at the statistics there is no possible way anyone can pin this on LeBron. Durant has already challenged some of the Warriors' young and promising players to raise their games.

"That's how you know we're a great team, is when everybody's coming after us", Durant said.

That was his last finals with the Cavaliers before he left for the Miami Heat, and there's rampant speculation he could leave Cleveland again this offseason. He buried 7 of 15, and Golden State connected on 14 of 38, including 9 of 17 en route to a 61-52 halftime advantage. So if you make a mistake, they're going to make you pay. - Why did LeBron James have so little to offer?

Sources told ESPN that James had two MRIs during the series and wore a soft cast when he wasn't practicing, playing or in view of the media - as to not give the Warriors a competitive advantage. "From five years ago until now, it seems like he's 10 times better, because he's added so much skill to his game". "Let's just speak truth", James said before rattling off Golden State's embarrassment of riches.

"Looking at this playoff journey, we knew it wasn't going to be as easy as previous year when it comes to our record".
