Warriors cement dynasty status with NBA Finals sweep


LeBron James sat powerless in an unfamiliar spot — the bench — as the Golden State Warriors toyed with the Cleveland Cavaliers early in the fourth quarter of Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

Steph Curry, who already topped 30 points, dribbled through the Cavaliers defence like the brush of an artist painting broad strokes. The Warriors lead extended beyond 20, yet judging by their energy you’d think the soon-to-be champions were playing in a tied game.

Kevin Durant was making a case for his second consecutive Finals MVP, notching a triple-double two nights after scoring a career playoff-best 43 points.

James returned, but the Warriors’ lead only grew, at one point reaching as many as 28 points. He checked out of the game with four minutes to play to a standing ovation from a fan base preparing to possibly say goodbye to its homegrown hero for a second time.
