Golden State Warriors Sweep Cleveland Cavaliers In NBA Finals

The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors faced off in part four of the NBA Finals. The Golden State Warriors once again win the NBA title and Kevin Durant won NBA Finals MVP. Here is a recap of all four games.

Game one — Golden State 124, Cleveland 114 F/OT — This game was closer than the final score indicates. The Cavaliers had control of the whole game up until the closing moments of the fourth quarter. The refs called an offensive foul, and then reversed it after review to a blocking foul on LeBron James, which let the Warriors shoot free throws and tie the game. The Cavaliers had the opportunity to win it at the free throw line, but George Hill only made one of two and JR Smith got the rebound on the second free throw in a tie game, but never put the ball up until it was too late. To me, Smith didn’t realize the score was tied and thought the Cavs had the lead. Anyways, the Warriors took game one. LeBron James finished with 51 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, one block and one steal. Kevin Love had 21 points, 13 rebounds and one assist. JR Smith had 10 points, six rebounds and two assists.

Game two — Golden State 122, Cleveland 103 — Golden State had control the whole way of this game. I think losing the way the Cavs did in game one, just threw off their confidence. LeBron James had 29 points, 13 assists, nine rebounds and two steals. Kevin Love had 22 points, 10 rebounds, two steals, one block and one assist. Tristan Thompson had 11 points and five rebounds.

Game three — Golden State 110, Cleveland 102 — The Cavs had another opportunity slip away in game three. They played a great game, but Kevin Durant and the Warriors were too much. Durant, just like game three last year, hit a clutch three in almost the same identical spot, but this time, it was over JR Smith. LeBron James had 33 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds, two blocks and two steals. Kevin Love had 20 points, 13 rebounds, three assists and one steal. Rodney Hood had 15 points, six rebounds and one block.

Game four — Golden State 108, Cleveland 85 — The Warriors had control of this game from start to finish. The Warriors would be back-to-back champions. This hasn’t happened since the Miami Heat when they went back-to-back. In what could be his last game as a Cavalier, LeBron James had 23 points, eight assists, seven rebounds and one block. Kevin Love had 13 points, nine rebounds, two assists and one steal. Rodney Hood had 10 points, eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block. JR Smith had 10 points, two rebounds and one assist.
