Golden State Warriors beat Cleveland Cavaliers to win NBA title

Oddsmakers are predicting an epic game from LeBron James tonight, as his Cleveland Cavaliers face off against the Golden State Warriors in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

ABC7 caught up with Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry after the team's epic sweep of the Cavaliers in Cleveland.

Speaking of KD, he had arguably the best game of his career, dropping 43 points on 15-of-23 shooting along with 13 rebounds and seven assists, including a dagger from nearly the exact same spot as the one he hit in Game 3 past year.

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

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

The fourth straight NBA Finals matchup between the two rivals proved to be the most lopsided as the Warriors won the latest best-of-seven series in four games. In three games against Golden State, Cleveland is 28-for-95 from three-point range - a 29.5 percent clip.

James, 33, is the oldest finals leader in points and minutes, having struck for 51 points in the opener, the fifth-best game total in finals history.

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.

En route to the championship-clinching blowout, Golden State's two former league MVPs stood out in major ways. "LeBron certainly thinks so, since he said "everybody knew" Durant was destined for greatness "... except Portland". The Warriors found themselves trailing by just six at halftime.

They did it in Game 4 behind Stephen Curry's 37 points and Kevin Durant's triple-double, which followed his stunningly efficient performances in Games 2 and 3. Golden State scored three quick baskets to start the third quarter.

LeBron James didn't waste any time getting off the floor Friday night, but unlike last time he left Cleveland, he didn't rip off his jersey.

Curry scored 20 points in the first half, hitting 4-of-6 3-point shots, as Golden State seized a 61-52 half-time edge. It has been well-documented that no team in National Basketball Association history has ever come back from a 0-3 deficit in any playoff series. But they still had to play Game 4. But if LeBron and his team can win a game and gain some momentum, they could make this series interesting for a return to Oakland this weekend.
