Fans cheer for Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35) as he warms up for Game 4 of basketball's NBA Finals between the Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers, Friday, June 8, 2018, in Cleveland.
Golden State, which has won eight of its last nine NBA Finals games against the Cavs, is a back-to-back champion for the first time in franchise history and has captured the title in three of the last four years.
Durant, the engine behind the Warriors' offensive juggernaut, averaged 28.8 points, 10.8 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game as his team needed four games to dispose of the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals.
And again, it was Durant, who added 12 rebounds and 10 assists - more satisfaction and validation for a player who couldn't beat the Warriors so he joined them.

In response, Beijing vowed to retaliate against USA exports to China with a matching value. "Those days are over", he said. Trump changes his mind often enough that United States allies and rivals alike hope he'll do just that on the duties.
"We just know how to win and we really appreciate what everyone brings to the table every single game" Curry said. Expectations to not only compete but to win another Championship for the city of Cleveland. "I don't think we've put our best game together yet, which is encouraging, because what better time to do that?" "So, definitely a different year, just overall, personally with injuries, as a team with dealing with injuries, dealing with the kind of expectations that have been placed on us from the outside and the noise around us as a team". Durant is also planning to opt out of his contract and sign a better deal with the Warriors this summer.
That depth proved to be too much for a Cleveland team that lacked options after LeBron James.
By the start of the fourth quarter, the only question was whether Curry would win his first NBA Finals MVP or if it would go to Durant for the second year in a row.
Houston probably isn't going away and remember, the Rockets gave the Warriors all they wanted this season. His passive play was shocking and in the decisive third quarter it was if James was saying "do you see what I have to work with?"
Through the first three games of the 2018 Finals, the Wine & Gold went toe-to-toe with the reigning Champs.

The Warriors lift their third NBA Championship in four years. In order to stave off the inevitable - teams with 3-0 series leads in the finals have gone 131-0 - James will need to be spectacular again.
"They move at such a pace, and they have five guys on the floor that can dribble, pass and shoot", Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said Friday night, a few minutes after the season ended and a few minutes into the Warriors' celebration down the hall.
Cavs have four players tally double figures in the Game 4 loss.
"I was there in the Hamptons when we had that discussion", Kerr said.
"For me, tonight will be tough", James said.

At 7-6 in the closing tiebreaker, he pushed a backhand long. "It was a fourth-round match and everyone is playing good now". Alexander Zverev made his long awaited first grand slam quarterfinal, and no one can say the German did it the easy way.
"They made so many runs but over the course of 48 minutes our will took over".
