LeBron James to take time before deciding on future

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

Kevin Love scored nine points and LeBron James eight for the Cavaliers. Went 16-1 in the Playoffs.

The Cavaliers got back to within 11. "From five years ago until now, it seems like he's 10 times better, because he's added so much skill to his game". There was no immediate word on the status or severity of his injury. He was 2-2 in four trips to the NBA Finals with Miami. His broadcasting career goes back to the 1980s, and he's been with ABC and ESPN since 2004. The crowd rose to salute him in what may be his last game as a Cavalier.

Cleveland has won seven straight Game 4s, dating to last season. That series, one where the Warriors led 3-1, changed when they couldn't finish the job while being presented with serious adversity.

The Cavs are facing elimination for the fourth time this postseason. James Harden and the Rockets came within one win of facing James in the Finals this season.

First, when the Indiana Pacers forced a Game 7 in round one.

It's also the only way the Cavaliers can survive. He buried 7 of 15, and Golden State connected on 14 of 38, including 9 of 17 en route to a 61-52 halftime advantage. "So our main focus is tonight, our Game 4".

Durant was voted the best player in this series - and he wants to keep growing.

"I came back because I felt like I had some unfinished business", LeBron said. "He has a lot of things going on as well". "I had emotions that you just don't get an opportunity like this on the road against Golden State to be able to get a Game 1".

The similarities saw the Golden State Warriors defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers to win the Larry O'Brien trophy, just like the 2015 champs did previous year over the 2016 winners.


Kerr got a good laugh. Kerr sounded exhausted when explaining his actions.

The last time a team was swept in the finals was 2007, when the Spurs took out James' Cavaliers.

But if it happens, at least he'll be in elite company.

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35) celebrates with the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy after beating the Cleveland Cavaliers in game four of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena.

The other four guys to be twice-swept?

Now, as James said Thursday, "everyone is trying to figure out" how to assemble a team to knock off a dynasty.

In the midst of NBA Finals, one of the biggest hip-hop battles in years took place between Drake and Pusha T. After both artists released diss records against each other, it was reported that rap mogul J. Prince convinced Drake to not respond to Pusha T's lethal, "The Story of Adidon".

James, who revealed he had played the final three matches of the 4-0 series defeat with a "self-inflicted" hand injury, has an opt-out in his Cleveland deal this off-season and admits he has some hard decisions to make. NBA Finals? The Cavs would be lucky to make the playoffs again in the next half-decade.

With the Warriors one game away from another championship, this National Basketball Association season is as over as the biggest rap beef of 2018. This is a man who averaged a league-leading 36.9 minutes per game this season and carried his team to a Finals appearance that was anything but guaranteed. Since then, the earliest any title series has ended was June 12.

"James said he had "pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand" since game one". The fact that they got here surprised me, actually, watching them during the regular season.
