Through the first three games of the 2018 Finals, the Wine & Gold went toe-to-toe with the reigning Champs.
With a 37-point onslaught in the championship clincher, a 108-85 demolition of the Cavs, Curry left Cleveland with his second straight title and third in four years-but without the Finals MVP trophy that remains out of reach.
The Cavaliers aren't. Their window of opportunity shut after Durant signed with the Warriors and Kyrie Irving forced his way out of Cleveland.
LeBron James meets the media following Golden State's sweep of Cleveland in the NBA Finals sporting a soft cast on his right hand, which he says he injured when he punched a whiteboard in the visitors' locker room after the Cavaliers' deflating Game 1 loss in Oakland.
Months of weight will lifted off him once the Warriors, who haven't lost four straight games since 2013, are crowned again. The Warriors own two of them, having swept the Washington Bullets in 1975.
Durant averaged 28.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game in the series.
"No team has ever come back from 3-1 either, and we did it", Lue said, referring to the Cavs' comeback to stun the Warriors in the 2016 Finals. "To carry this team the way he did all season and leading by example, it's just a testament to his character and who he is as a person and a player".
Who will LeBron James be playing for next season? Kevin Love, J.R. Smith and Rodney Hood added a combined 33 points, but shot just 11-35 from the field.
Kevin Durant Stares Down Hecklers Who Said His Alma Mater Was 'Butt'
The television ratings through the first three games of this year's NBA Finals continue a positive trend for basketball locally. Durant went to the University of Texas, and you could call the school "butt", since in 2017, it came in at 9th in the BIG 12.

Israel has shot literally several thousand Palestinian protesters over the past couple of months, so shooting unarmed protesters is not an unusual thing for them.
After eight straight trips to the National Basketball Association finals (with three victories), greener pastures may appeal, particularly if the Cavs can't do much to upgrade the talent on their roster. Became the ninth team to sweep a finals and first to win consecutive titles since James did it with Miami in 2012 and 2013.
"I had some tough problems going on throughout the course of the season, and I probably could have folded myself, but I wasn't going to do that", he said.
There were still a few seconds left on the clock when the Golden State Warriors stormed off their bench to begin a celebration that wasn't guaranteed. 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.
"They're going to come out just gunslinging".
"I have no idea at this point", James said.
His finals record, though, doesn't really take that much from his legacy. Once again, Game 4 was held in LeBron James' house at a packed Quicken Loans Arena.
Curry got the Warriors headed in the right direction, scoring 12 first-quarter points on 4-of-6 shooting, including a pair of threes.
"Our season was kind of the unknown".
"I think I've got a lot more to go", Durant told reporters.
"That's how you know we're a great team, is when everybody's coming after us", Durant said.
