NBA Finals 2018 match highlights:
– GSW won game 4 108-85
– They won the finals 4-0
– This was their 2nd title in 2 years
– Durant was the finals MVP
The Golden State Warriors wrapped up the finals in style at the Oracle Arena today with a thumping 23 point win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Home or away, the location just did not make a difference for the all-stars Warriors. They came to game 4 with intent and intent did they show on the day. A completely one-sided match saw Warriors sweep past the Cavaliers 108-85 to complete a clean sweep of the finals series by 4-0 and win back to back titles with that.
Coming back to NBA Finals 2018 match highlights, trailing by 3-0 last year as well, the Cavaliers did manage to win one game in the series before bowing out 4-1 to the Warriors. And going into game 4 at home again this year, a LeBron James lead side was expected to launch some kind of challenge to the Warriors. Well that is atleast what we all wished for as we hoped the Cavaliers had it in them to make the finals a little more entertaining for all of us. If only the Cavaliers were as determined as us though. Game 4 saw them not only crumble but also put up their worst performance this finals as a terrific Warriors performance blew them apart. It was almost as if they Cavaliers side had mentally died from the series, long conceding the title to GSW before the match even began. They had no answers to Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Green and Thompson who were in no mood to slip up in their aim to complete a full sweep over their arch-rivals.
Quarter 1 to 4. The script never changed, GSW’s dominance never ceased. Linking up lay for fun, dribbling past their opponents at ease, gliding past CC’s defence for fun, GSW put on one of their strongest performance in the 100 game season to stamp their name all over this year’s finals. Curry hit 3 pointers for fun to notch up a total 37 points, making up for his absence in game 3. He was fantastically aided by Kevin Durant who registered another triple double with 12 rebounds and 10 assists to take home the MVP for this year’s finals, adding to his title of MVP for last year as well.
The finals saw us witness not only some superb basketball by GSW but also some fine individual brilliance from their players. How to stop them is the question on everyone’s mind going into the new season.
