Hubie Brown injured before Game 4 of Finals

Golden State Warriors owner Peter Guber kisses the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy after beating the Cleveland Cavaliers in game four of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena.

Overcoming obstacles all season long, the Warriors were not going to be denied and won the fourth straight finals matchup against Cleveland easily.

Curry said after the win that the team used its experience in Game 4 against the Cavaliers previous year - also down 3-0 to the Warriors, they won by 19 to force one more game - to prepare, knowing they'd face a focused opponent. His eighth appearance in a row didn't go well either, and now there's uncertainty where the superstar will play next.

James finished with 23 points and spent the final minutes on the bench, contemplating what went wrong and maybe his next move. James scored 51 points in Game 1, going 7-of-16 from the field on shots from 10 feet and out in Game 1.He struggled shooting from such distances in the remaining three games, going a collective 5-of-19. The other four picked Curry. Though James put in his typically stellar performance in the Finals, Warriors easily swept the Cavaliers. "Pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand, so that's what it is".

A James slam dunk had Cleveland ahead 39-38 halfway through the second quarter, but Golden State responded to lead 61-52 at half-time and eased to victory from there.

Act IV between the Warriors and Cavs featured a drama-filled Game 1.

This was not the ending he nor the Cavs' fans deserved, not after the finest four years this organization will ever enjoy, courtesy of him. We can't get enough of this feeling. Brian Windhorst, the man who knows everything there is to know about LeBron, reported that James was playing with an injured right hand for the entire series. The 2018 NBA Finals against the Warriors had been decided at that point - some would argue it was over much earlier - and that opened the door for the biggest storyline of the 2018 offseason.

"We knew that they were going to come out with a tough first punch and we answered it and ran right back at them and set the tone for the whole game", Curry said.

If you are a fan of the Jazz and John Stockton and Karl Malone, Thursday represents the 20th anniversary of one of the worst non-calls in NBA Finals history. That gave him a game-high 13 points. Golden State won the game 110-102.

Durant becomes the 11th player to win Finals MVP twice, joining six-time victor Michael Jordan, three-timers Magic Johnson, Shaquille O'Neal, Tim Duncan and James, and two-timers Kobe Bryant, Larry Bird, Hakeem Olajuwon, Willis Reed and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He was 2-2 in four trips to the NBA Finals with Miami.
