Golden State Warriors win title, LeBron James reveals broken hand

There were lingering questions about Curry's sprained left knee that sidelined him for nearly six weeks and kept him out of Golden State's first-round series against San Antonio.

"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".

It doesn't quite rise to the level of a war of words - these two teams spend a lot of time complimenting one another - but Stephen Curry took mild umbrage with something James said after Game 3.

KD can negotiate a new, long-term deal with the Warriors to stay with the team for the foreseeable future, or he can sign another two-year deal, with a player option after one season like he previously did. The Warriors also won in 1947 and 1956 when based in Philadelphia plus 1975, 2015 and 2017 after their move to the San Francisco Bay area in 1962.

This is insane. Everybody knows of James' competitiveness, but to be so frustrated with a loss that he would punch a board?

I guess the best analogy is bones are like eggs. "With 43 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists the 6'9" soft-spoken Warrior along with his supporting cast, executed exactly what the Warriors team is known for - Strength in Numbers.

CLEVELAND -Stephen Curry scored 37 points, Kevin Durant added 20 and a triple-double and the Golden State 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 Cleveland Cavaliers to complete a sweep and perhaps drive LeBron James from his home again to chase championships.

Now James, a free agent, has a hard off-season decision.

After Game 4, James said the injury was "self-inflicted" and occurred because he was emotional after the Cavs lost the close game. "So I don't have an answer for you right now as far as that".

Fans chanted "M-V-P" to James in the final minutes, sensing his possible exit again. He could return to Miami, a place he still loves. I'm glad we came out and played a great game.

Ironically, it is West who's highly-regarded as the architect of this Golden State Warriors juggernaut - the team responsible for two or maybe three of the Cavs forward's finals losses, depending on what happens in the 2018 NBA Finals.

"We used the experience previous year to our advantage", Curry said. "For us to be able to be here again, we can't get enough of this feeling". That series, one where the Warriors led 3-1, changed when they couldn't finish the job while being presented with serious adversity.

The Cavaliers got back to within 11.

"They made so many runs but over the course of 48 minutes our will took over".

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers sits on the floor after defeating the Boston Celtics 87-79 in Game Seven of the 2018 NBA Eastern Conference Finals to advance to the 2018 NBA Finals at TD Garden on May 27, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts.

The Warriors defeated the Cavs 108-85 in Game 4 late Friday at Quicken Loans Arena to claim their third title in four years.

James was removed with 4:03 remaining and congratulated the Warriors before taking a seat on the bench.

For the Warriors, with Durant in his second season with Golden State, their team chemistry has only gotten stronger.
