NBA Finals: Warriors Sweep Cavaliers For Second Consecutive Title; Twitter Reacts As LeBron Gets Swept


Stephen Curry scored a game-high 37 points and Kevin Durant added a triple-double as the Warriors won their second consecutive NBA title and third in four years with a dominating 108-85 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“This is so hard to do and doing it three out of four years is incredible,” guard Klay Thompson said.

Only Bill Russell’s Boston Celtics, the “Showtime” Lakers and the Los Angeles squad led by Kobe and Shaq, and Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls have been as dominant in such a short period of time.

Durant was named the NBA Finals MVP for the second year in a row after averaging 28.8 points in the series, along with 10.8 rebounds and 7.5 assists.

LeBron James averaged 34 points, 8.5 rebounds and 10 assists in the series, but like it has been all season, the Cavs didn’t give him enough help. The three-time NBA Champion is expected to opt out of his $35.6 million contract for 2019 in July and become a free agent.

Here’s how fans reacted on Twitter after the Cavs got swept.
