Dub Dynasty: Warriors sweep Cavs for second straight title

Share
Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyle Korver has been shut down by the Warriors in the NBA Finals for a second straight year

After the Golden State Warriors' NBA Finals sweep against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday, the team and city of Oakland announced plans to hold the city's third victory parade in four years Tuesday at 11 a.m.

Prior to Friday night, Cleveland had won seven straight Game 4s, dating to last season.

Kevin Durant's decision to join the Warriors received a lot of scrutiny, but his time in Golden State has been an outright success.

James could force a sign-and-trade to the Rockets, but the Rockets would likely have to include Eric Gordon to make it work, which would be a blow to the team's roster.

Cleveland had no answers for Durant's offense as the lanky forward scored at will from inside as well as beyond the arc.

It was the second time the Warriors have secured the championship in Cleveland during Kerr's four-year tenure. "In Game 1, I could feel a difference in intensity and that was the main thing throughout and even if you just look at the numbers, playing against some of the best teams in the league, we had a really good defensive grading, field goal percentage defense". Golden State outscored Cleveland by 12 in what has been the defining time period of the series, stretching a single-digit lead to more than 20. KD should now just go back to his "Slim Reaper" nickname, as he is just killing the hopes and dreams of anyone thinking they can beat the Warriors...

With the Warriors one game away from another championship, this National Basketball Association season is as over as the biggest rap beef of 2018.

Durant averaged 28.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game in the series.

"To be the best player in the world and to give everything you've got in your 15th season, play all 82 games and carry this team the way he did is a testament to his character", Lue said.

'I had emotions [that] the game was taken away from us, [that] you just don't get an opportunity like this on the road [against] Golden State to be able to get a game one, and I let the emotions get the best of me. The Warriors blew them out in two of the final three games.

The quarter closed with the Warriors up 21. I wondered if we could hit a switch in the postseason.
