Kevin Durant helped out with a triple-double (20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists) and was named MVP of the finals for the second straight year (though some thought the award should've gone to Curry).

The 2018 NBA Finals are over, and in predictable fashion, the Golden State Warriors steamrolled the Cleveland Cavaliers to win their third championship in the last four years.

"To carry this team the way he did all season and leading by example, it's just a testament to his character and who he is as a person and a player". It's not always just about you. Strauss reported Kerr told the Warriors players and coaching staff Golden State would get the two wins necessary to clinch a conference title and then sweep through the Finals.

"K.D.'s been incredible these last two years, especially in the finals, and so deserving of back-to-back finals MVPs", Warriors guard Stephen Curry said. Despite Lebron's historic postseason run, the Cavs had no shot of defeating the star-studded Warriors team. "People have been saying that for the past four years".

In the third quarter, the Cavaliers were outscored by Curry and Klay Thompson (who combined for 15 points) as they posted just 13 points in a demoralising display.

It's not very surprising that the libertarianish Kochs support free trade and oppose trade wars. The trade tariffs are 25 percent on imported steel and 10 percent on imported aluminum.

"Can't get enough of this feeling so we're going to celebrate it together", Curry said. But myself and D-Wade and Bosh, you know, UD (Udonis Haslem), Mike Miller had a few injuries, but (Mario) Chalmers was available, and pretty much our team, we were pretty solid as far as being injury - not being injury-prone. James had two MRIs during the series and iced the hand after games. "Very emotional, for a lot of different reasons". They understand when they get on the court with me or if they check up with me, they know what it is. After surviving a rougher-than-usual regular season and beating top-seeded Houston Rockets in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals, the Warriors withstood a 51-point masterpiece by LeBron in Game 1 of the Finals. James saw a referee call reversed against him and J.R. Smith forego a final shot with the score level, thinking the Cavs were ahead. Stephen Curry rained 3-pointers and led all scorers with 37 points in Game 4.

What he is sure of is that if and when he does opt out of his contract and hit the free agent market, his family will have a bigger say in his decision than they've ever had before.

"I twisted it pretty good", James said. So sitting down and considering everything, my family is a huge part of whatever I'll decide to do in my career, and it will continue to be that.

Fans chanted "M-V-P" to James in the final minutes, sensing his possible exit again.

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