Reviewing the NBA FINALS 2018


For the 4th straight year running, the biggest and baddest boys of NBA, Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers have reached the Finals.

Now you would think that the excitement would go down but despite the deja-vu and familiarities, there are plenty of new aspects to this matchup.


For starters, Cleveland after trading out some big names like Isaiah Thomas and Dwayne Wade started underperforming. However they still had ‘The King’, Lebron James. The NBA superstar reached the finals for the 8th consecutive season and carried the whole team on his shoulders averaging almost 27.5 PPG.

On the other hand, Golden State Warriors, has arguably the best team in the tournament. It consists of mega stars like Kevin Durant and ‘splash brothers’ Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.


The finals started on the 1st of June 2018 and saw GSW taking the lead at home due to a series-changing blunder by Cavs’ JR Smith. Lebron became the first player in finals history to drop 50 points and still lose the game. The second game was also played on the 4th of June at Oracle Arena and Steph Curry helped GSW win again by hitting a record 9 three-pointers.

For game 3 we went to Quicken Loans arena, the homecourt of Cavs. However, the same story continued. Kevin Durant hit a clutch 3 pointer in the dying minutes of the game which extended the lead of Warriors by 6 points and then there was no going back. The series stood at 3-0. Game 4 was again at the Quicken arena and the Cavs hoped to gain by home advantage. It was a make or break game for them. If they lost this game, they would lose the championship. However, the Warriors were too strong for Lebron and co.  Steph Curry turned up again and hit 37 points including some massive 3 pointers and the Warriors were victorious again. It was a disappointing finish for a very good season by Lebron James as he had to suffer a 4-0 whitewash at the hands of a very strong team, however he gave it his best.


Kevin Durant took home the NBA FINALS MVP for the second time in as many years and had a hero’s welcome back home. Now all we have to do is wait and watch what ‘The King’ decides about his future, will he stay at Cavs and never be blamed for any shortcomings in the franchise’s history or trade out and find himself building on his legacy.
