Golden State fans celebrate NBA championship win

Curry made two 3s after hitting only one in Game 3. Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, two of the Warriors' other stars, were also unproductive, combining for 20 points despite each playing 40 or more minutes.

James scored 51 points in Game 1, going 7-of-16 from the field on shots from 10 feet and out.

Golden State is on the cusp of another National Basketball Association championship, holding a 3-0 series lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Cavaliers surged back with eight straight points to cut it to two points midway through the period.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst broke the news shortly after the Warriors were crowned champions with a victory in Game 4 on Saturday AEST. The 84-year-old Brown was replaced on the radio broadcast by Jon Barry. There was no immediate word on the status or severity of his injury.

According to Rachel Nichols, it looks like Kevin Durant has no plans of testing the free agency waters this summer.

Cleveland has won seven straight Game 4s, dating to last season.

The Warriors lead this year's NBA Finals 3-0. (That seems unlikely.) They won a title, then set a record for the most wins ever in a regular season, and then they added Durant.

But Stephen Curry and the Warriors are off to fast start.

There was one game, however, that James and the Cavs nearly stole.

It's also the only way the Cavaliers can survive.

Durant's series was highlighted by his playoff career-high 43 points in game three.

Coach Steve Kerr described the triumph as "the hardest so far" but his Warriors side routed the Cavs 108-84 to prevail in the fourth consecutive finals meeting between the teams. There was no way the Cavs could hold out hope of any comeback and Bron and coach Tye Lue knew it.

Act IV between the Warriors and Cavs featured a drama-filled and controversial Game 1. "So our main focus is tonight, our Game 4". You show up thinking that we're going to show up and win, right?

His finals record, though, doesn't really take that much from his legacy. "Every player does not want to - sad to say - but every player doesn't want to compete for a championship and be in a position where every possession is pressure". "He has a lot of things going on as well". Next, Golden State blew Cleveland out of the water in Game 2.

The cause: He punched something after Game 1 of the finals, his frustration having obviously boiled way over when the Cleveland Cavaliers let the series opener against the Golden State Warriors get away amid late-game miscues and one overturned call that left him seething. He didn't get the foul, but his hurl was good for a 13-3 lead that stunned the crowd. Even if Cleveland manages to win game four, it is unlikely the Cavaliers can steal game five on the road.

A few days ago, LeBron spoke candidly about why he left the Cavaliers in 2010 - because the team wasn't good enough.

But if it happens, at least he'll be in elite company. The feat has not been accomplished since the 2007 San Antonio Spurs swept a young LeBron James and his Cavaliers teammates behind a dominant series from Tim Duncan.

James, 33, reportedly will meet next month with Philadelphia, the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston, Boston, Miami and even the Warriors. James Worthy was on both of those teams - 1983 and 1989 - but didn't actually play in the first sweep because of injury. That was the worst figure among the nine Cleveland players that appeared in the game. James, however, has stuffed a stat sheet unlike anyone before him, and has a chance at finishing a second consecutive finals averaging a triple-double. "KD's been unbelievable these last two years, especially in the Finals, and so deserving of back-to-back Finals MVPs".

Congrats to the Warriors, they played with more effort and the will of a championship team.

"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.

Andre Iguodala, playing for just the second time in the Finals, contributed 11 points to the win off the bench.
