James had badly hurt hand after 'self-inflicted' injury

They went 67-15 on the way to the National Basketball Association title in 2015, matched that record on the way to another title last season and went 73-9 - the best record in league history - in 2016 only to fall short in the finals against Cleveland.

Durant said at the time the leadup to his decision was the most challenging few weeks of his career but after the success he has enjoyed over the last two seasons he is not about to second guess his move.

CLEVELAND - Kevin Durant was named the 2018 NBA Finals MVP on Friday night after the Golden State Warriors finished a sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers with a 108-85 blowout win.

James had two MRIs during the series and wore a soft cast when he wasn't practicing or playing or in view of the media, sources said, so as not to give the Warriors a competitive advantage. "Just the length of the journey". Became the ninth team to sweep the finals. And then 2017. And now 2018. He never missed a game this season. Durant, who, like James, will be a free agent at the end of the year, turned in a 43-point masterpiece, carrying the Warriors on a night when Steph Curry turned in one of the worst shooting performances of the year. We just won back-to-back.

Ahead 104-79 lead with 2:47 left, Kerr called timeout and cleared the bench. "The environment is incredible".

The Warriors are better.

Winning the title is the most important thing to the Warriors but Curry will surely feel a small sense of disappointment as he was definitely deserving of being crowned the best player in the Finals on this occasion.

"We all want something that's bigger than ourselves", Durant said. Curry went 7-for-15 behind the arc after making just one of 10 attempts in Game 3.

Hitman 2 Leaks Ahead of Its Upcoming Reveal by Warner Bros
Games was planning for a surprise reveal later this week, though the "surprise", as it turns out, apparently will be Hitman 2 . The existence of a logo for Hitman 2 suggests that 6pm United Kingdom this Thursday we will see a sequel officially announced.

"I mean, we all know that", Lue said. Can't get enough of this feeling. Sign up for Mark Medina's private text messaging service. In only his second game since missing six in a row with a bruised knee, the wise veteran delivered 11 points, nine of them coming from behind the arc.

As these playoffs showed - and he himself said - LeBron James remains in championship mode.

Kevin Love had 13 points, while JR Smith and Rodney Hood chipped in with 10 apiece for Cleveland, which shot just 34.5 percent from the field and 8-for-27 from behind the 3-point line. George Hill and Rodney Hood shot a combined 5 of 20. Could he and James become teammates somewhere such as Philly, Los Angeles, Boston or even San Antonio?

"James said he had "pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand" since game one".

When it comes to ratings, there was also a difference that might sting for the Disney-owned net and the league nearly more than the second loss in a row will for now-free agent James.

James struck for 51 points in the opener, the fifth-best game total in finals history but it was a post-game punch out of frustration, into a blackboard according to ESPN, that caused the injury. Understanding especially where my boys are at this point.

"I remember sitting in this room three years ago and it seemed like a dream". "I was there in the Hamptons (at the Durant recruiting session) when we had that discussion".

"So I will sit down and consider everything, but my family is a huge part of what I decide to do". "You know, I watched that team a lot during the year". Of the Warriors' four superstars, all are under contract, although Durant has an opt-out clause in his. Rockets GM Daryl Morey is consumed with beating the Warriors, so he will do whatever it takes to do that. They battled complacency, overlapping injuries to all their star players and a seven-game series against top-seeded Houston in the Western Conference finals. The Cavs led briefly in the first half, but it was over shortly after halftime. "Every journey is a new one each season". In this series, it was James, Love and a group of role players trying to do the unthinkable.
