CLEVELAND — The Golden State Warriors finished off a sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4 of the NBA Finals tonight, winning 108-85 at Quicken Loans Arena.

The Warriors led 61-52 at halftime and began to pull away in the third quarter in what could be the last game of LeBron James' second stint with the Cavaliers.

James scored 23 points, had eight rebounds and five assists before going to the bench in the game's closing minutes. A decision on free agency is next for James this summer.

Kevin Love added 13 points and nine rebounds. J.R. Smith and Rodney Hood each added 10 points. Cleveland shot just 34 percent (30 of 87) from the floor.

Steph Curry led Golden State with 37 points and Kevin Durant added 20 points and 10 rebounds.
