The Cavaliers shot 24 percent and scored 13 points in the third period.

The fourth quarter was utterly one-sided as a stunned Cleveland crowd watched in near silence while their team was outclassed up and down the court. He addressed that criticism in an interview with Yahoo Sports following the Warriors' title-clinching victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday.

Curry embraced coach Steve Kerr, who has endured a hard three years with a serious back injury, after the final whistle. But when the third quarter arrived June 8, their effort appeared exhausted. Looking at this playoff journey, we knew it wasn't going to be as easy as a year ago. You just don't get opportunities like this against Golden State to take Game 1 and I let the emotions get the best of me.

"When we came here three years ago in the first meeting, we weren't fearful of his shot". Steph (Curry) came out, and was aggressive for us early. "It was definitely the toughest from the standpoint that it's the fourth year in a row that we've attempted to get back to the finals".

According to ESPN host Rachel Nichols, Kerr said he was surprised the Cavaliers were able to make it as far as they did, but credited LeBron James and Tyronn Lue, for making the improbable happen. Four years after returning to Cleveland from Miami, James has delivered what he promised: a championship for the city of Cleveland. One of two game-winners, mind you. "Very emotional, for a lot of different reasons". James walked to the podium with a cast on and told reporters that he played essentially played the last three games with a broken hand.

Over the four games, he averaged 34 points, 10 assists and 8.5 rebounds while shooting 52.7 per cent from the field.

"I have no idea at this point", James said. Sitting down and considering everything, but my family is a huge part of what I'll do.

Depending on who you ask, LeBron James may be the answer to that question, or Michael Jordan could get the vote.

Kevin Durant says he will stay, Stephen Curry is enjoying the success and the Golden State Warriors appear set for a solid run next year at their fourth National Basketball Association crown in five seasons.

"I mean, for me, I still have so much to give to the game".

In Games 2, 3 and 4, James scored 29, 33 and 23 points, respectively, as his team was swept by Golden State.

"The Bay Area allows me to be who I am, as a city, to just blend in, and the team allows me to do the same thing", Durant said. The Cavaliers could never match that sort of versatility.

If James does leave then the Cavaliers should look to move Kevin Love.
