- For the fourth straight year, the NBA season ended with a Warriors-Cavs clash in the Finals. The Crossover followed every step of Part Four of the rivalry, which ended with Golden State securing a four-game sweep.
For the fourth year in a row, the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers squared off in the NBA Finals. Both sides were not only chasing championships, but history. LeBron James played in his eighth consecutive Finals, failing to claim his fourth title and inch closer to Michael Jordan's six rings. While Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Co. secured back-to-back titles and their third in four years.
Just to fresh your memory: the Warriors drew first blood in the rivalry by claiming the 2015 Finals in six games. The next season, Golden State jumped out to an infamous 3–1 lead, only for LeBron and the Cavs to mount the greatest comeback in NBA history and win the series in even. Last year featured less suspense in the third installment, as the Warriors rolled to victory in five.
