The fourth quarter was utterly one-sided as a stunned Cleveland crowd watched in near silence while their team was outclassed up and down the court.
The Warriors completed a sweep of the Cavs with a 108-85 victory on Friday.
\Steve Kerr didn't hesitate to keep things real. It was the third time he has led the league in minutes played (36.9 minutes per game). Looking at this playoff journey, we knew it wasn't going to be as easy as previous year. I've got a teenage boy, a pre-teen and a little girl that wasn't around as well. The 13 blocks was a playoff high for the Warriors this year; they only had three games during the regular season with more than 13 blocked shots.
Congratulations to the Golden State Warriors, and we hope to see what move Lebron plans to make very soon!
Even when his squad was one loss away from elimination, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr had full confidence the team would repeat as National Basketball Association champions. I pride myself on working hard wherever I go. "James wants reliability as much as ability". James had two MRIs during the series and iced the hand after games.
"The fact that they got here surprised me, frankly".
James later revealed that he played the final three contests with a serious and self-inflicted hand injury suffered after a Game One overtime loss in which J.R. Smith ran down the clock rather than attempt a game-winning shot as time expired. So sitting down and considering everything, my family is a huge part of whatever I'll decide to do in my career, and it will continue to be that. "So, I don't have an answer for you right now".

And you have to accept what comes with that". "But we've got to do a good job of just taking away the easy ones". Do that, and more often than not James will say that giving up the ball is the right play.
"Sometimes you can give everything you've got and still come up short, and I thought that's what our group of guys did in this series", Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue lamented. Steph Curry led them in Game 4 with 37 points.
Free agency will present a number of intriguing options to James, who will have the option of starting anew with a handful of well-equipped suitors or returning to Cleveland to possibly finish his career where he started it.
As he faded, so too did his teammates - with ESPN commentator Mark Jackson lamenting the lack of effort as the Warriors snatched repeated offensive rebounds.
Durant is expected to opt out of his contract but he's already said publicly that he plans to re-sign with Golden State. But the Warriors used a late burst to push their advantage back to nine points at halftime, and the Cavaliers never got closer.
