The Golden State Warriors have done it for the second year in a row and this time they swept the Cavs in four games. Last week the Cleveland Cavaliers were hyped and ready to bring the series back to Cleveland hoping to tie the series 2-2 with home court advantage. Things appeared to be slightly in their favor in game three when the Cavs headed into the locker room at half time with a 58 – 52 lead over the Warriors.

The Warriors came out strong in the third quarter outscoring Cleveland 31-23 scratching the home team’s lead and never really looking back as they won game three 110-102. The Cavs backs were against the wall in game four and it showed. The Warriors in the end had too much talent to cover and outscored the Cavs in every quarter but the second, beating Cleveland at home 108-85 for the title, 2018 NBA Champions.

In other sports the Colorado Rockies righted the ship in their series with the Cincinnati Reds last week, by taking two of three on the road. The Rox returned home to host the now division-leading Arizona Diamondbacks. Colorado and Arizona have been volleying for first place in the National League West (NL West) over the past couple weeks and their series with the Diamondbacks at home was their chance to put some distance between them and Arizona. The Diamondbacks however, swept Colorado at home in three games, dropping the Rockies from battling for first to third in the division.

The Rockies are on the road through Monday in Philadelphia to face the Phillies and on to Texas to face the Rangers for a three-game series’. The Rockies’ significant drop in the NL West standings should be enough fuel to get them back on track and fans are hopeful that this team has enough in the tank to outlast their divisional foes.

The Colorado Rapids are free falling with little hope. The Rapids have now lost nine in a row after their road game in Houston over the weekend. Colorado was shut out 2-0 and were outshot 20-2. The Rapids return home this weekend to host the Chicago Fire SC, and hope to put an end to their slide.

Super-teen (14-year-old) athlete Spencer Breaux, from Denver will compete in Women’s Skateboard Park streamed live from Rhodes Skatepark in Boise, Idaho this Saturday. Breaux is competing to secure an invitation to compete at X Games Minneapolis. Fans can watch the Road to X Park Qualifier coverage on ABC as part of the World of X Games content on June 17th.
