The third time is the hardest.

The Golden State Warriors are the 2017-2018 National Basketball Assn. champions, blowing out the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight 108-85 at Quicken Loans Arena in what may be LeBron James's last game for the OH team.

It was mildly surprising the hardware didn't go to Stephen Curry, who rebounded from a subpar shooting performance by leading all players with 37 points, to go along with six rebounds and four assists in the Game 4 rout.

The Warriors now join a select list of teams to win three National Basketball Association championships in four years and are expected to add to that impressive haul. "They were younger when I made this decision four years ago". This feels more like reality.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said his team has not given up on itself. We just won back-to-back.

"You're going to have some jerks call him names and then you're going to have some people that say he brought this city its first championship in forever", D'Angelo Aikens, a 38-year-old Cavaliers fan, said. "All season, getting up, going to work with these guys is awesome", Durant said.

"I think I've got a lot more to go", Durant told reporters. We always keep our eye on them, of course, and there have been kind of three different versions of their team. It didn't look like they were going to have enough.

After the Cleveland Cavaliers lost the NBA Finals to the Golden State Warriors on June 8, LeBron James, 33, revealed that he played the last three games with a right hand injury. "They had an wonderful run".

He's also the sixth player to win it in consecutive years, with Jordan, O'Neal, James, Olajuwon and Bryant being the others.

Durant scored 20 points while registering a triple-double in the series clincher but his efforts will be remembered mostly for the playoff career-high 43 points he scored in a pivotal Game Three that all but sealed the title.

"This year was pretty insane in general with all that we went through with injuries and the struggles throughout the regular season", said Stephen Curry, who finished second in the voting to repeat victor Kevin Durant for the Finals MVP award.

Kerr said the only thing that ever matters to Curry is winning titles. "I was there in the Hamptons (at the Durant recruiting session) when we had that discussion". The Finals MVP was first handed out in 1969.

Mindful of last year's missed chance at a flawless playoff run, the Warriors expect their toughest NBA Finals challenge from Cleveland on Friday, June 8 (Saturday, June 9) as they chase a series sweep.

James, perhaps playing his final game for the Cavaliers, had his least productive outing of the series, recording 23 points, seven rebounds and eight assists in his eighth consecutive trip to the Finals.

"I had emotions of you just don't get an opportunity like this on the road versus Golden State to be able to get a Game One, and I let the emotions get the best of me", said James, wearing a brace on his right hand at his post-game conference.
