LeBron James "pretty much" broke hand out of frustration after Game 1

Cavs Warriors NBA Finals Creator Community Sports

The fourth quarter was utterly one-sided as a stunned Cleveland crowd watched in near silence while their team was outclassed up and down the court.

James punched a white board following Cleveland's overtime loss in the opener at Oracle Arena, calling his injury "self-inflicted" after Golden State finished a sweep of the Cavaliers with a 108-85 victory on Friday night.

Curry embraced coach Steve Kerr, who has endured a hard three years with a serious back injury, after the final whistle. It was the third time he has led the league in minutes played (36.9 minutes per game).

"He told us at the beginning of the year, all that we have to go through".

"When we came here three years ago in the first meeting, we weren't fearful of his shot".

The Cavaliers have to make the No. 8 pick before being eligible to deal it away because they already traded their selection to the Los Angeles Lakers in early February along with point guard Isaiah Thomas and forward Channing Frye in exchange for guard Jordan Clarkson and center Larry Nance Jr.

"The bottom line is we had more talent", said Warriors coach Steve Kerr.

"We just know how to win", Curry said. And now, the National Basketball Association off-season or "The Summer of Lebron" officially begins.

The Warriors used one of their patented third-quarter takeovers to seize control of the game. "Very emotional, for a lot of different reasons". I've got two boys that play the game as well. Durant, who also had 12 rebounds and 10 assists, did.

James is expected to decline his $35.6 million player option and become a free agent on July 1.

"When I decide what I'm going to do with my future, my family and the folks that have been with me for the last, you know, 20 years, pretty much, will have a say-so", he said. I don't have an answer for you right now as far as that....

"I mean, for me, I still have so much to give to the game". Steph Curry led them in Game 4 with 37 points.

At 33, James might have played his final game for the Cavaliers.

As he faded, so too did his teammates - with ESPN commentator Mark Jackson lamenting the lack of effort as the Warriors snatched repeated offensive rebounds.

"I don't want to downplay anything but I don't want to act like this is the end of the road", Durant said.

If James does leave then the Cavaliers should look to move Kevin Love.

In the third quarter, the Cavaliers were outscored by Curry and Klay Thompson (who combined for 15 points) as they posted just 13 points in a demoralising display.
