James finished with 23 points.
James scored 51 points in the game, going 7 of 16 from the field on shots from 10 feet and out in Game 1.
Overall, the Warriors shot 45 percent from the floor and canned 14 three-pointers.
The Cavaliers got back to within 11.
The 84-year-old Brown was checked out by doctors in the arena, and will not be working the game as an analyst.
No matter what happens next, it's just thanks in my heart for LeBron James and all the Cavaliers that have played here over the last four years.
He managed that in 2016 when Cleveland came back from 3-1 down against the Warriors to win.
The Cavs are facing elimination for the fourth time this postseason.
But Stephen Curry and the Warriors are off to fast start. Golden State throttled Cleveland, holding the Cavs to just 13 points.
"Self-inflicted, post-game after game one".
It's also the only way the Cavaliers can survive.
An 11-2 Warriors run put Golden State ahead 24-13 on the way to a 34-25 lead after the first quarter.
'For me, I still have so much to give to the game, ' James said.
Golden State opened the game laser-focused on the prospect of a sweep.
"James said he had "pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand" since game one". "He's won three championships". If he wants to go and get a championship, by all means go and get it.
Steph Curry led the way for Golden State, top-scoring with 37 points as the Warriors made it back-to-back National Basketball Association titles courtesy of their 108-85 win in Cleveland.
Golden State lived up to its reputation as world-beaters in the third quarter, turning the game into a laugher. "Every player does not want to - sad to say - but every player doesn't want to compete for a championship and be in a position where every possession is pressure".
Now James, a free agent, has a hard off-season decision.
Durant scored 20 points in the Game 4 clincher Friday night, a 108-85 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers - but his series will be remembered most for what he did in Game 3.
And it was the first time that a team had lost a finals in a clean sweep since 2007, when the San Antonio Spurs inflicted that pain on... the James-led Cavaliers.
The other four guys to be twice-swept? He is rumored to be interested in playing for the Philadelphia 76ers or the Los Angeles Lakers. He buried 7 of 15, and Golden State connected on 14 of 38, including 9 of 17 en route to a 61-52 halftime advantage.
Regardless of whether you're in attendance, or watching from home, this should be a fun event as it always is when teams get to celebrate a title with their city.
Kevin Durant was named Finals MVP for the second year in a row, becoming the sixth player to achieve this feat.
Hobbled by a Friday night ender, the last game of the 2018 NBA Finals is not actually that reflective of how well the playoffs fared. Since then, the earliest any title series has ended was June 12.
ESPN reported James hit a blackboard in the locker room after that game and underwent two MRI exams that showed the fracture, a fact he kept hidden so the Warriors would not know.
They used 27 starting lineups in the regular season and five so far in the playoffs, but they're one win away from getting their fingerprints all over another Larry O'Brien Trophy. In short, not looking their best at times this season might ultimately make them better.
