LeBron James' conversation with Jerry West after losing first two NBA Finals

6 jokes Le Bron James has made despite the Cavs rough NBA Finals

His eighth straight appearance didn't go well either, and now there's uncertainty where the superstar will play next. James still shot 49% from the field over the last three games, but just 27% on three-point attempts with fewer than four attempts per game.

And Curry, who missed nine straight 3s in the previous game, had the National Basketball Association landscape buzzing with a jaw-dropping shot early in the game. Do his children decide they just want to stay in Northeast Ohio? "Getting up every day, going to work with these guys, it's fantastic".

In many ways, the end of the 2018 NBA Finals was very much like the end of the 2017 NBA Finals, except in the ratings for the league and ABC.

Thompson had all 10 of his points in the third period, during which Golden State outscored the Cavaliers 25-13. Durant stated his case by registering his first playoff triple-double - 20 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists - two nights after nearly singlehanded destroying the Cavs with 43 points, a playoff career-high, and 13 rebounds.

James once again gave a heroic effort, but it was not enough to stem the overwhelming and balanced talent of Golden State, which came into the series looking for a sweep after Cleveland denied them the opportunity a year ago for a ideal playoffs run.

This could be the last NBA game this season as the Golden State Warriors look to sweep the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4 of the 2018 NBA Finals tonight.

After a sub-par performance in Game 3, Warriors guard Stephen Curry responded with a spectacular shooting night by scoring a game-high 37 points while James had a team-high 23.

The 33-year-old, who came back to the Cavs and ended the city's 52-year championship drought in 2016, is expected to opt out of his $35.6 million contract and become a free agent.

Kevin Love recalled Cleveland's Game 4 effort past year with backs to the wall. He plopped down in a chair and draped a towel over his broad shoulders, looking like a boxer on a corner stool.

The final buzzer of Game 4 served to tell the Warriors something they already knew.

The Decision came nearly two months later.

Rodney Hood was the only other Cavalier in double-figures - also adding 10 points - but it took the four-year vet 14 shots to get them, finishing 4-of-14 from the floor to go with eight boards and a pair of steals.

"This was the hardest one we've had by far", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "I think I've shown this year why I will still continue to be in championship mode".

That set up another reunion with James and the Cavs. Durant was electric in Game 3 while Curry struggled, but let's not forget Curry's Finals-record nine three-pointers in Game 2. Subir Jossan, a hand and orthopedic surgeon at the Centers for Advanced Orthopedics near Washington, DC, says playing with a broken hand risks more injury.

The Cavs' talisman reportedly suffered the injury after punching a blackboard in frustration after his side spurned an opportunity to win in the final seconds.

Longtime network broadcaster Hubie Brown injured his knee while sitting courtside preparing before the game. Cleveland bears the toll of its four straight trips to the Finals in ways that Golden State does not.
