The Cleveland Cavaliers were brushed aside by the Golden State Warriors last night, completing a four-game sweep in the best-of-seven NBA finals to be crowned the best team in USA basketball for the second year in a row.
Steph Curry led all scorers in Game 4, finishing with 37 points on 12-for-27 shooting, including a 7-for-15 mark from long-range and a ideal 6-of-6 from the stripe - adding six boards, four assists, three steals and three blocked shots.
Golden State Warriors win title, LeBron James reveals broken hand
The question now is whether it was James' final home game for Cleveland , with free agency looming this summer. But if James comes back, the Cavs would be $40 million over the cap with spots on the roster to fill.
James finished with 23 points. Andre Iguodala returned to the court and chipped in with eight points in 22 minutes of action. A mental error at the end of the fourth quarter by Cleveland guard J.R. Smith sent a winnable game into overtime, where the Cavaliers lost.
Kerr was forced to mix and match lineups, and it became obvious the Warriors weren't going to go 16-1 and storm their way to a title like they did in 2017, when their only postseason loss came in Game 4 after the Cavs made 24 3-pointers.
It was the first sweep in the NBA Finals since 2007, when James was dismissed by a powerful San Antonio team in his first one.

He's now won three National Basketball Association championships, he's led the league in scoring, set numerous three point records, and won two MVP awards including the only unanimous MVP ever. "The way he can score the ball in so many different ways. Big-time players have big-time moments". Curry and McGee (yeah, he was a legitimate factor again) boosting Golden State to a 67-52 lead and sending Cleveland scurrying to a timeout. The next closest players are Larry Bird and Tim Duncan with 21 apiece. They outscored the Cavaliers 25-13 in the session and started carving the word "Dynasty" on their third trophy.
The Warriors were in the process of completing an 11-0 run. "Even when you do defend them well, they've got guys like Steph and KD who can make unbelievable shots". He didn't get the foul, but his hurl was good for a 13-3 lead that stunned the crowd.
