Twitter buries LeBron, Cavaliers for quitting in Game 4 of sweep

McGee screen Twitter buries LeBron, Cavaliers for quitting in Game 4 of sweep

That included a victory over the Warriors previous year in the NBA Finals, when the Cavaliers were in the same 3-0 deficit they faced Friday.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are just one game away from elimination from the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors.

LeBron James, perhaps playing his final game for the Cavaliers, had his least productive outing of the series, recording 23 points, seven rebounds and eight assists in his eighth consecutive trip to the Finals.

It was the first sweep in the NBA Finals since 2007, when James was dismissed by a powerful San Antonio team in his first one.

Instead, Cleveland is only left to wonder if James is a game from leaving.

LeBron James runs into an extended metaphor Friday against Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors during Game Four of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena on in Cleveland.

By the Warriors, by the burden he carried leading an underwhelming supporting cast to the NBA Finals, by the weight of his second Cleveland tenure possibly ending.

Steph Curry had one of his finest National Basketball Association finals games with 37 points. His nine quick points sent the Warriors to a 13-3 lead. It was that effort that likely won him his second-straight individual Finals honor.

Kevin Love had 13 points, while JR Smith and Rodney Hood chipped in with 10 apiece for Cleveland, which shot just 34.5 percent from the field and 8-for-27 from behind the 3-point line.

"It was such an up-and-down season, so many guys got hurt", Durant said.

The Cavaliers would come no closer in the second half.

But it was just a matter of time before the Warriors took over.

The Warriors used a dominant third quarter to build a 21-point lead that left the Cavaliers' hopes of a series comeback in their wake.

James played in every game for Cleveland - 82 in the regular season (something he'd never done before) and 22 in the playoffs.

Golden State claimed the sixth crown in club history, matching the Chicago Bulls for third on the all-time list.

You really get the feeling that the Cavaliers missed out on a chance to make this competitive series after they blew Game 1 so I'm not surprised that they're now 48 minutes from a series sweep. Local cable channels including ABC are included in the Hulu Live TV package, so you'll be able to quickly join in time to watch the Warriors Rockets Game 4 online.
