Kevin Durant's Biggest Moments Of His MVP-Winning NBA Finals

"It's tough to get back and get matched, especially with their speed".

Once again, James is carrying a superhuman load to try and keep the Cavs afloat against a vastly superior Warriors team.

A season ticket holder of the Golden State Warriors reportedly sold two floor seats to Game 5 of the NBA Finals online for $133,000, according to ESPN.

After racing through the opening 15 games of this year's playoffs, the Warriors' win streak was snapped in Game 4, but the Western Conference champions are confident about wrapping this series up and securing theirs second National Basketball Association title in three seasons. And after this year, it's on the Cavs to improve and make a possible match-up more competitive than it was this year. He was held scoreless in the fourth quarter.

Yes, Durant is a remarkable talent, and remained so in Game 4, as he finished with 35 points, four rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 39 minutes.

Where the Cavs crapped out was getting little scoring from Kevin Love (six points on 2-of-8 shooting and 10 boards) and with their bench.

Golden State completed an unprecedented 16-1 run through the National Basketball Association playoffs, registering the second-best average point differential (plus-13.5) in league history.

The Cavaliers rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the best-of-seven series to stun the defending champs in 2016, using a 112-97 win in Game 5 in Oakland as a catalyst.

The Cavs enter the offseason with the contract of general manager David Griffin set to expire June 30. It could happen, but changes by Cleveland are a must.

Cleveland hammered Golden State, 137-118, in Game 4 on Friday night. He scored 11 in the period.

The Warriors dominated their two previous home games in the series, winning 113-91 and 132-113. They led by as many as eight; James, Irving and Curry scored 12 apiece. But Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant have each picked up two fouls.

And then, approximately 11/2 tires fell off Cleveland's wagon.

There were always going to be critics against his decision to join the Warriors last summer. They were open because Cavs defenders stood in the paint and watched.

James has hit 5 of 6 shots in a torrid start for Cleveland.

(If needed) Thursday, June 15: Golden State at Cleveland, 9 p.m. Warriors star Kevin Durant and his mum both won. They were underdogs in only three games this season and won 31 of their last 33 games, including their prolific postseason run. For now, they are far from thinking about the offseason, but if they fall short in the Finals, there could be a ton of rumors surrounding the team. Cleveland and Golden State are the only teams with single-digit odds. West shoved Irving to pick up a technical foul, then went chest-to-chest with Tristan Thompson. He played Zaza Pachulia way too long, especially in the third quarter, instead of going with Green at center.
