Get your brooms read, everyone. Game 4 of the NBA Finals is upon us, and the Golden State Warriors have a chance to do something quite rare: win the NBA Finals in a sweep. They have pushed the Cleveland Cavaliers to the brink of elimination, and now’s their chance for an emphatic victory.
Of course, this was the case last year as well, and the Cavs had a monstrous Game 4 victory before falling in Game 5. The Warriors will try to keep that from happening tonight.

Who wins Finals MVP?
If the Warriors complete the sweep, someone will be named Finals MVP. The good thing is, it doesn’t really matter at all, and the players really don’t care. Still, it’s fun to debate. Stephen Curry seemed in line for the trophy after two games, but Game 3 was an all-time dominant game by Kevin Durant, and now he looks like the frontrunner.
As long as Golden State wins, the rest is academic. But it’s a fun discussion regardless.
The Warriors are obviously trying to end things now, but it will be a good situation either way. A win tonight means a sweep. A loss means they get to go home and try to clinch the title in front of their home crowd. That’s a pretty good situation to be in, and Steve Kerr knows it.
Does Steve Kerr prefer to win NBA title in front of hostile road crowd, or win before a cheering home crowd? Kerr: "Both sound awesome. I'll take either one."— Mark Medina (@MarkG_Medina) June 8, 2018
We’re just a few hours away from the Warriors potentially winning their third title in four years. How cool is that?
Let’s go dubs!!!
