Golden State Warriors: 3 takeaways from Game 4 vs. Cavaliers

Jun 8, 2018; Cleveland, OH, USA; Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35) handles the ball against Cleveland Cavaliers guard JR Smith (5) during the third quarter in game four of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena.

Their depth covers injuries, off nights and backcourt struggles, with players stepping at just the right moments to deliver a locked-in performance. Philadelphia's Joel Embiid was already making overtures to James on Twitter. while Cleveland's final game was still in progress.

Los Angeles would further James' options post career while also giving him a reasonably strong team to chase another ring with.

With that, the watch is on.

James is not winning in Cleveland, not as the Cavaliers are constituted.

LeBron James paced Cleveland with 23 points.

This ending - a loss - was inevitable: For as good as James was this season, his Cavaliers were not good enough.

The final on Friday night was Golden State 108, Cleveland 85.

Following the game, he sat quietly in his corner locker with a towel draped over his head.


The Warriors are smarter.

After passing all of those tests, they avoided the letdown that bit them a year ago in Cleveland and left no chance of repeating the horror of 2016 when they blew a 3-1 series lead against the Cavs. There will be a parade in the Bay Area before long, championship rings to hand out and another banner to unfurl on opening night next season, and more free agents likely will take a look at signing with Golden State in an effort to add to their own jewelry collections. "They move at such a pace, and they have five guys on the floor that can dribble, pass and shoot". He fights and competes to the end.

"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. In this series, it was James, Love and a group of role players trying to do the unthinkable.

Fans chanted "M-V-P" to James in the final minutes, sensing his possible exit again. But he's not going anywhere, even mentally, until this series is over. No one. Not everything is scandal. He could return to Miami, a place he still loves.

"The one thing that I've always done is consider my family".

The Warriors won the game in overtime. "I don't think nobody is anxious about that type of stuff, I'm glad that we came out and played a great game tonight and was able to finish the series off". That's why he spends well over $1 million a year to tweak and hone his body. James' window of greatness will close, someday. Subir Jossan, a hand and orthopedic surgeon at the Centers for Advanced Orthopedics near Washington, DC, says playing with a broken hand risks more injury.

James could be packing up and leaving his native northeast OH once again. He has given the city so much.

If James wants to go hunting for a fourth ring, the consensus is he will have to leave Cleveland. His decision, whatever it is, will dictate if Cleveland is a contender next season or a tanker.

"We hit 24 threes past year in Game 4 and had a really great showing and didn't accept defeat", Love said.
