Durant, the engine behind the Warriors' offensive juggernaut, averaged 28.8 points, 10.8 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game as his team needed four games to dispose of the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals.
The Golden State Warriors are the 2017-2018 National Basketball Assn. champions, blowing out the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight 108-85 at Quicken Loans Arena in what may be LeBron James's last game for the OH team.
Game 4 was Golden State's lowest scoring game of the Finals (108 points), but their largest victory of the series (plus-23) as they held Cleveland to 85 points.
James, who was playing in his eighth consecutive National Basketball Association finals and fourth straight with the Cavs, has carried the team since he returned from Miami in 2014.
Let's be totally honest here, did we really think that Embiid wouldn't be the first one to say something to James?
Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors are now just one win away from another NBA Championship after outlasting the Cavaliers in their own building.
Curry expects Cleveland to go for broke after James unleashed 51 points in Game 1 and a triple double in Game 3 but lost each time.

He needs to go out and figure out how to get another All-Star on this team who can help carry the offensive load for LeBron during the regular season and chip in during the postseason.
By Golden State standards, this ride was downright bumpy.
"We know we can beat this team and we have the confidence to do that", Lue said. Stephen Curry scored 37 points with seven 3s, six rebounds, four assists, three steals and three blocks. "I hope that doesn't sound arrogant".
Now, James has a decision to make. It's still euphoric, but three years ago was I can't believe this happened, and now it's I can definitely believe this happened.
"I just want to congratulate Cleveland on an unbelievable season", Kerr praised. "But after a game like that, I'm not in any position to talk about that".
"We want a different outcome", Warriors guard Shaun Livingston said. LeBron was removed for good with 4:03 left and after slapping hands with the Warriors, he took a seat as the crowd chanted "M-V-P". "We keep waking up every day and trying to get better and we end up here".
