Warriors sweep Cavs to earn second straight National Basketball Association title

Golden State Warriors owner Peter Guber kisses the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy after beating the Cleveland Cavaliers in game four of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena.

Aside from their series clinching losses to the Warriors, the Cavaliers have fared well in elimination games the past four seasons - going 7-2.

Porter, 19, is a 6-10 forward from Missouri who at one time was projected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, but suffered a back injury in his first game and didn't return until the SEC Tournament. Having taken place on a Friday night, ratings themselves weren't necessarily going to match up with games that are played during the week or on Sundays.

"I let the emotions get the best of me".

"Pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand", James said.

"When you have a goal, I think any individual, anybody, male, female, whatever the case may be, when you have a goal and you seek that goal out and you dream about that dream, and you put everything, and you care to - you guys like this brace, huh (laughing)?" James knows that, too.

The 29-year-old was an All-Star for the fifth time in his career this season, averaging 17.6 points and 9.3 rebounds per game.

He told reporters he had "no idea at this point" what he would do when he became a free agent on July 1.

Plus, Golden State will get better. When we came here three years ago in the first meeting, we weren't fearful of his shot. They have a ton of cap room to sign a couple of star players.

'Understanding how important a game one is on the road for our ball club, what would that have done for us, the way we played, the calls that were made throughout the course of that game.

But as getting swept in the NBA Finals showed, the current makeup of Cleveland's roster likely isn't good enough to win an NBA championship.

Among the top destinations mentioned in the LeBron sweepstakes: the Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets.

So where will James go?

"Well, I mean, I'm not going to take you throughout the whole process". Essentially, for certain tiers above the luxury tax, teams who qualify for the repeater will be charged a certain dollar amount multiplied by the amount of money in each tier they are over the luxury tax. The Warriors' successful title defense marked the 13th time in National Basketball Association history a team has won at least two in a row, and they became the seventh franchise to do so, joining the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets, Miami Heat and Detroit Pistons.
