That brings us to the end of the 2017-18 season and sadly to an end of our live coverage of the NBA Playoffs for this season.

Do keep following Sportskeeda Basketball for all things hoops as the offseason brings with it a plethora of roster changes and the all-important NBA Draft in almost two weeks' time!

Till then, this is us, Amulya Shekhar, Raunak Jaiswal, and Yash Matange signing off for the final time this postseason. Sayonara!
...
So there we have it! The 2017-18 NBA Finals comes to a close with Golden State Warriors emerging as the winners (surprise, surprise). The Cleveland Cavaliers may have been swept but many would opine that they overachieved this term. It was the same old 'team of all stars vs LeBron James' story in Game 4.

Incidentally, LeBron's first and now his last trip to the NBA Finals have both ended in series sweeps. But jibes aside, you need to recognise greatness when you see it and hats off to King James for carrying the Cavs throughout this postseason. But what about being the greatest of all time you ask? That's a debate we should consider postponing for another day.

The biggest highlight of this quarter has to be Kevin Durant doing a little shake and break on the sidelines.

...
LeBron is fouled and he makes 1 of 2 free throws.

7 more minutes of garbage time left to endure as Warriors lead by 23...

...

...
Chef Curry! He makes another deep trey from the top of the circle.
...
George Hill makes his first 3 of the night from the left corner.
...
Green misses with the shot clock winding down and so does Nick Young on the other end!
...
Steph Curry fires a 3 and makes it! That's his fifth 3 of the night!

Rodney Hood with a sweet drive to the basket and bank shot bucket to start things off in the fourth quarter.
...
So then, are we in for 12 whole minutes of garbage time in probably the final game of the NBA 2017-18 season? We'll know soon!
...

The Cavaliers score just 13 points in the third quarter, while the Warriors score 25!
...

...
Livingston makes a couple of FT's with the Cavs in the bonus. 
...
Neither team has scored after that, a minute has passed by!
...
On the other end, Warriors just can't seem to score but they get two offensive rebounds and then make a long 1-minute possession count with a Klay 3!
...
LeBron makes both!
...
An 18-point lead right now! 

Cavs have a chance to cut that with a couple FT's coming from LeBron. 
...
LeBron James called for a foul, that's four on the KING! 

KD makes both!
...
Klay gets a sweet mid-range jumper to fall.
