Steve Kerr: Stephen Curry fine with Kevin Durant as MVP

NBA Finals Game 4 Live Golden State Warriors lead Cleveland Cavaliers 3-0

The Warriors completed their four victories in four games in the Finals to win their third title in four years, after they won 108-85 in Cleveland.

"I have no idea at this point", he said when asked if he played his final game for the Cavs.

"I hope he stays", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. "But it was hard".

The last time a team was swept in the finals was 2007, when the Spurs took out James' Cavaliers.

Kerr added: "I just want to congratulate Cleveland on an awesome season. I had emotions that you just don't get an opportunity like this on the road against Golden State to be able to get a Game 1". We always keep our eye on them, of course, and there have been kind of three different versions of their team. The fact the Lakers are armed with enough cap room to credibly chase a pair of max contract players, plus have a roster full of young players to turn into more pieces that are ready to win, make them a formidable challenger. "They had an incredible run".

Durant won, giving him NBA Finals MVP trophies in each of his two seasons as a Warrior.

The voting also wasn't really that close Durant earned seven of the 11 votes from the chosen media members. 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.

They overcame deficits of 17 and 15 points against Houston in the final two games of the Western Conference finals, with the second of those contests on the Rockets' home floor.

"Steph went out and recruited K.D. with this in mind: Winning titles", Kerr said. "Is it if there is a ball on the ground we can't reach for it but you've got to dive for it?" It was all about let's win championships together, and that's what this is about. You guys can write about MVP.

As a team, the Cavaliers shot just 43 percent from the field and nine of 31 from the three-point line which was good enough to keep them in the game due to their defense, but they just had no answer for Kevin Durant who scorched them for a game-high 43 points on 15 of 23 shooting. His right hand, which he says he injured after punching a blackboard as the result of a frustrating Game 1 loss, needed icing, too. It was Cleveland's first major sports championship since 1964 - to go with all the other ways James financially revitalized this city after returning from the Miami Heat to rejoin the team that drafted him. He fights and competes to the end. Those performances couldn't get the job done, either.

No team in National Basketball Association playoff history has won a series from a 3-0 deficit, but no National Basketball Association team had rallied from 3-1 in the finals until Cleveland shocked Golden State in the 2016 finals. He seemed to be giving his reasons after the Cavs fell behind 3-0 against Golden State.

The Warriors started the third quarter - of which they are indisputable masters - with baskets by Thompson. James averaged 34 points in his 13th postseason, his second-highest total.

James had become upset in the final seconds of regulation time in the 124-114 defeat, when a foul call was reversed to allow Golden State to equalize and J.R. Smith grabbed a late rebound with the score level but dribbled away from the basket, thinking the Cavaliers led.
