The Cavs had been playing a glorified game of H.O.R.S.E. with the Warriors, who are undefeated and can complete a sweep of San Antonio on Monday night.

The Warriors thumped the injury-plagued Spurs 129-115 in San Antonio on Monday to sweep the series 4-0 and book a place in the NBA Finals against the victor of the Eastern Conference finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics.

Warriors forward Kevin Durant had a phenomenal game scoring 29 points with 12 rebounds and four assists.

This Golden State Warriors' postseason stampede through the Western Conference has been defined by dominance, not drama.

Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant both had extremely efficient shooting nights, getting it done no matter what looks the Spurs threw at them.

Steph Curry top-scored for the Warriors with 36 points.

"He called, we talked, we laughed", Brown said.

His three year contract with the San Antonio Spurs is about to expire.

The sweep continued a streak for the Warriors, now 12-0 in the post-season, who await the victor of the Cavaliers-Celtics Eastern Conference Finals series.

Golden State moves on to play either the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers, in a repeat of last year's title series, or the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals. The Warriors may get the last laugh after being the butt of 3-1 jokes for the past 11 months, but they weren't about to get a head start on the yakking. "And he said, 'Yeah, I'm coming back for another three years, ' or whatever it was".

The biggest difference is the addition of Durant, who left Oklahoma City in the offseason to sign with Golden State. He proved that worldwide players were not just spot-up shooters or big men that thrived in the low post. Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, the No. 1 overall pick in this year's National Football League draft, and fellow rookie Jabrill Peppers took a few shots on the floor before teams came out for warmups. "On offense, no team is more unselfish... they've got a multitude of people who are unselfish". Curry has averaged 28.6 points, 5.6 assists, 5.5 rebounds, 1.9 steals and 4.4 3-pointers in 34.3 minutes per game while posting a huge.675 true shooting percentage in the postseason. I have to choose between two wonderful, truly wonderful options. "Make no mistake - they're really talented. So there is no way I can be sad, because whatever I decide, it's going to be great".

The addition of David West and Matt Barnes has given the Warriors two more defensive-minded players off the bench to go along with Andre Iguodala and JaVale McGee.

Popovich said that Ginobili is a future Hall of Famer who allowed him to start him on the bench for the last decade because it would make the team better. "In all my years in the league, they're playing at the highest level right now". In the final five minutes of regulation and overtime, Durant didn't attempt a shot. "Yeah, I think they would have beaten all those teams, too", he said, drawing laughter. Spurs G Manu Ginobili is the only player in National Basketball Association history besides LeBron James to record at least 800 rebounds, 800 assists and 300 3-pointers in the postseason. It's not just talent, it's not just that these Warriors are better than previous models. So, it's a little different now, obviously.
