Golden State Warriors Win NBA Championship, Beat Cavs 108-85

Warriors sweep away Cavs to win second straight NBA title

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be hoping to stave off elimination and avoid the dreaded series sweep after falling to the Warriors in a 110-102 loss in Game 3.

"It's always been a key to our team, it's what we value most". He can do so either by signing elsewhere as a free agent after July 1 or opting into the final season of his current Cleveland contract and forcing a trade to a new home.

While the Warriors are at the top of the National Basketball Association mountain with a third championship in the past four years, they face some free agency questions of their own. We can't get enough of this feeling. LeBron James started the game looking to involve his teammates and finished with a triple-double of 33 points with 10 rebounds and 11 assists, Kevin Love added 20 points while Rodney Hood provided the spark off the bench with 15 points on seven of 11 shooting. While Cleveland has made the Finals each of the past four years, he's often had to carry the team; his 34-point scoring average in the Finals easily topped Shaquille O'Neal's record 28-point average in 1995, ESPN reported. "But what (Cavaliers coach) Ty (Lue) did with his group and obviously what LeBron does night after night is just incredible". A fourth go-around at the NBA Finals hasn't changed their essence, combining laser-focused attention at the defensive end with devastating double-digit runs that have proved ultimately too much for teams to take. "Getting up every day, going to work with these guys, it's awesome". Curry, trying to draw a foul against J.R. Smith beyond the arc on the right side, jumped up and forward, trying to draw contact against the former Knick while heaving a prayer - maybe more a novena.

Specifically it provided $5.2 billion in mandatory funding for the veterans choice program as the previous funding expired. It's expected to take another year before a new single program is up and running.

James, widely regarded as the greatest player of his generation, is expected to leave for a second time, having returned to the franchise in 2014 after departing for Miami four years earlier. "I was very emotional for a lot of different reasons and I let that get the best of me".

Curry said after the win that the team used its experience in Game 4 against the Cavaliers a year ago - also down 3-0 to the Warriors, they won by 19 to force one more game - to prepare, knowing they'd face a focused opponent. Sometimes you can give everything you've got and still come up short.
