The Golden State Warriors, up 3-0 in the best of seven 2018 NBA Finals, can eliminate LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers and capture the NBA championship by winning Game 4 on Friday, June 8, 2018 (6/8/18) for a sweep.

Stephen Curry scored 37 points and Kevin Durant, the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player for the second year in a row, added 20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists for the first finals triple double of his career.

No player in the league understands the current climate better than James, who formed a super-team in Miami with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh and won two National Basketball Association titles before returning to Cleveland and joining forces with All-Stars Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving. While that was a joyous celebration after decades of heartbreak, the Warriors getting the result they were always expected to felt more like a relief after a long slog of a season, a result long expected and predicted by many before the season tipped off. The other: Who would win Finals MVP? Three titles and four consecutive Finals appearances has seen to that, even if they've enjoyed an embarrassment of riches these last two seasons.
"I hope he stays", Tyronn Lue said. "It makes us come to work and try to play at that championship level every single day, and that's the hardest part". Immediately following the game four loss, James was asked about his impending decision and whether or not he would leave the Cavaliers.

"When you get on the podium and you realize all the hard work that you put into it and all that you've been through led to that moment, it never gets boring", Curry said. He scored 23 points in what turned out to be the last game of the finals last night.
