Golden State Warriors beat Cleveland Cavaliers to win title

Shortly after the trophy ceremony crowning the Golden State Warriors NBA champions, ESPN reporter Brian Windhorst dropped a bit of a bombshell. "They made some mini-runs, but over the course of 48 minutes our will took over".

Game 1 ended in a Cleveland overtime loss to the Warriors.

"Pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand", James told reporters in the press conference. All they need to be worrying about is making sure they don't get swept on their home court in what could possibly be LeBron's final game in a Cavs uniform.

LeBron has been sensational in the 2018 postseason and throughout the Finals - averaging 37.7 points, 10.7 assists and 9.0 boards through the first three games of the series - and he was incredible again on Wednesday, going 13-for-28 from the floor - tallying his 10th career Finals trifecta in the process, leading both teams with 11 assists to go with 10 board, two steals and a pair of blocked shots.

"We just know how to win", Curry said.

James has a $35.6 million player option for next season. Sometimes you can give everything you've got and still come up short. Can the Cavs get good enough quickly enough to convince LeBron to stay?

Durant, who had a playoff career-best 43 points in game three, became only the sixth back-to-back finals MVP.

"This is about the journey".

"Just after the game, just talking to the guys, it was a tough season", Lue said.

"It's a journey that's better than the destination".

The path to this title was more precarious than the first two for coach Steve Kerr and the Warriors, who overcame injuries, expectations, a built-to-dethrone-them Rockets team and the brilliance of James, who scored 51 points in the series opener and carried a Cavs team from the beginning of their rollercoaster season until the end. His nine quick points sent the Warriors to a 13-3 lead.

Curry scored 20 points in the first half, hitting 4-of-6 3-point shots, as Golden State seized a 61-52 half-time edge.

Then the league's best team tightened the screws on Cleveland in the third quarter, outscoring the Cavs 25-13 and prompting Golden State fans to begin those drawn-out "War-eee-orrss" chants that provide a ideal musical accompaniment to their 3-point barrages.

James, widely regarded as the greatest player of his generation, is expected to leave for a second time, having returned to the franchise in 2014 after departing for Miami four years earlier.
