Kevin Durant went back-to-back, twice.

Thirty-eight thoughts for 38 points in the paint in the 108-85 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Friday in Game 4 of the NBA Finals ...

Its now two straight NBA championships for the Golden State Warriors, and two consecutive NBA Finals MVP awards for the forward who played a huge role in getting them to those titles.

Durant only scored 20 but had his first triple-double of the postseason, as he finished with 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

Durant had scored 43 points in game three.

LeBron James left the court with 4:03 left on the clock and the Cavs down 102-77, having just turned over the ball to Durant while the game slipped out of their reach.

"This about the journey, going to work every day with these guys", Durant said after the game on ABC. It's good for you to be around guys like this.

"I let my emotions get the best of me and played the last 3 games basically with a broken hand", James said, displaying his soft cast.

There were 11 voters for the MVP award; Durant got seven votes, Stephen Curry — who still doesnt have a Finals MVP — got the other four. Does it?” Durant asked.

"We won two championships".

Joining illustrious company, Durant became just the sixth player to win back-to-back Finals MVPs. The Finals MVP was first handed out in 1969 — Russells final season with the Celtics.

But as the final minutes ticked by the only uncertainty was whether Curry or Durant would take the series Most Valuable Player award, with the latter taking the trophy for the second year in a row with an average of 28.7 points in the series.
