The Cleveland Cavaliers were just swept by the Golden State Warriors, and have now lost three times in their last four Finals appearances.

After surviving a rougher-than-usual regular season and beating top-seeded Houston in Game 7 on the road in the West finals, the Warriors pushed aside James and joined an elite group of teams to win multiple championships in a four-year span.

So this series is just about finished, or at least, that's what the history books say. Meanwhile, King James put up a good fight averaging 28.3 points per game during this year's finals.

Durant scored 20 points while registering a triple-double in the series clincher but his efforts will be remembered mostly for the playoff career-high 43 points he scored in a pivotal Game Three that all but sealed the title.

Curry, who had the terrible Game 3 after a record-setting Game 2, when he nailed a Finals all-time best nine 3-pointers, left the Cavaliers crowd muttering when he ended the half with a long 3-pointer to stake the Warriors to a 61-52 lead.

LeBron James played through the NBA Finals with a serious right hand injury that he sustained after Game 1, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

If the Cavaliers can keep the series going with a win Friday, the series will return to Oracle on Monday for a 6 p.m. start in Game 5.

President Trump decries 'fake' reporting on Melania, says she's well
The president said Tuesday on the South Lawn that it's time to "explain why young Americans stand for our national anthem". Eagles players rebuffed that notion, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season.

"It feels great to go out there and win a championship with these guys the way we did it". The last time that he chose to leave the Cavaliers, it was due to him taking the next step in his career to go somewhere he felt he could grow as a player while finally getting over the hump as he was unable to do that in his first seven years in the league. He has taken Cleveland to the NBA Finals now five times, and this now looks certain to be his fourth loss in those. In another was Kevin Durant. "The experience just helps".

"I hope he stays", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.

He ripped out the hearts of Oklahoma City Thunder fans when he left for the Oakland-based Warriors, which many considered the easiest route to an National Basketball Association title.

Speaking at a news conference early Saturday, James - who had cast covering his right hand - admitted to hurting himself after punching a whiteboard out of frustration after Game 1.

That was his last finals with the Cavaliers before he left for the Miami Heat, and there's rampant speculation he could leave Cleveland again this offseason. "Even when you do defend them well, they've got guys like Steph and KD who can make unbelievable shots". At the same time though, considering the interactions he's had with some of these players during what could potentially be his last season with the Cleveland Cavaliers, it's a bit amusing to think how quickly guys jumped to asking James to join their teams. That will be a deciding factor in how long I want to play'.

Nor after everything James said in his unforgettable "I'm Coming Home" essay he co-wrote with Lee Jenkins for Sports Illustrated in July 2014.
