Hot-Shooting Curry Leads Warriors To NBA Title

Hot-Shooting Curry Leads Warriors To NBA Title

But the loss of Chris Paul to a hamstring injury in the final minute of Game 5 doomed Houston's chances, as Golden State won Games 6 and 7 - despite trailing at halftime of each - to make it back to the Finals.

James must tell the Cleveland Cavaliers if he wants to leave the team during the final year of his contract before midnight on June 29. Golden State suffered a rash of injuries, seeing all four of their all-stars miss at least nine games, led by Curry sitting for 37 - including six playoff games.

The Cleveland Cavaliers didn't enter Friday with much hope, trailing the Golden State Warriors 3-0 in the NBA Finals. As a team, the Cavaliers shot just 43 percent from the field and nine of 31 from the three-point line which was good enough to keep them in the game due to their defense, but they just had no answer for Kevin Durant who scorched them for a game-high 43 points on 15 of 23 shooting.

The Cavs had successfully faced down elimination three times this season but were unable to mount any threat of a comeback in this one as the Warriors simply had too much firepower. "It was hard and it gets more and more difficult as you go through".

It was Durant's 28th consecutive playoff game with 20 or more points. "It's just a testament to his character and who he is as a person and as a player". He played a supporting role in the movie Trainwreck with Amy Schumer. Game 3 of this year's Finals brought in a total audience of 17.9 million sets of eyeballs watching on ABC on Wednesday night. Smith, who's 2018 Finals run got off to a rough start and never quite straightened out, shot just 31 percent from the floor in the Finals. The way we played, the calls that were made throughout the course of that game. It didn't look like they were going to have enough.

"To win in a sweep, it feels pretty good", Durant said. Durant stated his case by registering his first playoff triple-double - 20 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists - two nights after nearly singlehanded destroying the Cavs with 43 points, a playoff career-high, and 13 rebounds. They were a flawless 16-of-16 from the stripe and handed out 25 assists on 39 made baskets. While that was a joyous celebration after decades of heartbreak, the Warriors getting the result they were always expected to felt more like a relief after a long slog of a season, a result long expected and predicted by many before the season tipped off.

Now, with the Golden State Warriors leading the series 3-0, I think it's time I wrote this article.

In Game 4, it was Durant again. In the history of the National Basketball Association, no team has survived after being down 0-3. "They showed a lot of effort and grit, mucked up the game quite a bit and just hit shots from all over the court. It was a tough third quarter for us". They've gone back-to-back, beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-85 on Friday night to finish off a sweep of these NBA Finals in the fourth consecutive meeting between those clubs. No other player in NBA Finals history has ever done that in back-to-back contests.

"He's a bad boy, and I love having him on our team".

The quarter closed with the Warriors up 21.

One, was whether LeBron James was playing his last games as a Cavalier.

"Our season was kind of the unknown".
