LeBron says after NBA Finals that he played with broken hand

LeBron James

Curry, who had the awful Game 3 after a record-setting Game 2, when he nailed a Finals all-time best nine 3-pointers, left the Cavaliers crowd muttering when he ended the half with a long 3-pointer to stake the Warriors to a 61-52 lead.

By the start of the fourth, the only question was whether Curry would win his first NBA Finals MVP or if it would go to Durant for the second year in a row. 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.

James said accomplishing that feat in 2016 with the Cavaliers "made me even more hungry to continue to try and win championships".

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James revealed he played with a broken hand for the majority of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors.

The Warriors trifled with injury and ennui all season, resulting in the team failing to win the top seed in the Western Conference Playoffs for the first time since Steve Kerr took over as head coach in 2015 and a seven-game series with the Houston Rockets. But the weight of having to shoulder so much of the load throughout the Playoffs seemed to catch up with James in Friday's finale.

The pregame air had a striking similarity to last year, when the Cavaliers, 1-3 against the Warriors over the past four years, forced a Game 5.

Mr Harris said he was confident that the legislation would be passed in parliament should people vote Yes on Friday. The campaign is being watched, and sometimes influenced, by anti-abortion groups in the USA and elsewhere.

To keep his players interested, Kerr brought in guest speakers, among them famed motivator Tony Robbins.

LeBron didn't get a ton of help from his supporting cast in Game 4. The Warriors won the game in overtime. "It never gets boring". Smith's decision to dribble the ball out to the perimeter in the final seconds of regulation in Game 1 likely cost Cleveland that game.

Rodney Hood was the only other Cavalier in double-figures - also adding 10 points - but it took the four-year vet 14 shots to get them, finishing 4-of-14 from the floor to go with eight boards and a pair of steals. "Every journey is a new one each season". After a disappointing rout in Game 4, the Cleveland Cavaliers (for now!) superstar showed up to the media room sporting a brace on his right hand. They overcame an 11-point deficit in Game 1 of this year's NBA Finals and rallied from 13 points down to beat the Cavs in Game 3 on Wednesday. They were a flawless 16-of-16 from the stripe and handed out 25 assists on 39 made baskets. He seemed to be giving his reasons after the Cavs fell behind 3-0 against Golden State. It's a credit to Steph and KD that they don't let the honor come between them, but imagine if Kobe was winning MVPs over Shaq?

That's why all signs point to James leaving, and playing out the final years of his career with a team where he doesn't have to do as much, where he can still prove his greatness and where he believes he can win more titles.

In the process, a bit of National Basketball Association history was made as Golden State is the first team to sweep the Finals since 2007, when the San Antonio Spurs schooled the Cavs. He had 23 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds, which isn't bad when you consider he was playing with only one hand.

The quarter closed with the Warriors up 21. James Worthy was on both of those teams - 1983 and 1989 - but didn't actually play in the first sweep because of injury. The playoffs were the real season, and everyone knew it.
