CLEVELAND –The Golden State Warriors remain at the top of the basketball world.
What makes the Warriors as good as they are is that, at their best, they are both the league’s best offensive team and its best defensive team. The champs have never relied on just their talent to get by.
This time, the Warriors took care of business in Game 4 of The Finals finishing the 2017-18 season off with a 108-85 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Stephen Curry (37 points) and Kevin Durant (20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists) led the way. Durant was named Finals MVP for the second straight year.
The Warriors’ defense was at its best with their season on the line. In winning games 6 and 7 of the Conference Finals, they held the Houston Rockets (one of the best offenses in NBA history) to just 92 points per 100 possessions.
And they did that without one of their best defensive players, Andre Iguodala, who missed the last four games of that series and the first two games of The Finals.
