The Golden State Warriors have claimed back-to-back NBA titles after taking care of business against the Cleveland Cavaliers on the road with a 108-85 win in Game 4.

Steph Curry found his shooting rhythm as he ended the game with 37 points while Kevin Durant had his first ever playoff triple-double and claimed his second-straight Finals MVP trophy.

Curry just edges out Durant to top the list in our Finals player ratings for Game 4.

10 - Stephen Curry

After a less than impressive display during Game 3, Steph Curry showed why he's regarded as the greatest shooter the game has ever seen as he shot lights out from beyond the arc.

9 - Kevin Durant

There was no explosive scoring display from Durant during Game 4, but the ultra-impressive forward ended with his first ever post-season triple-double and had just as big of an impact on the game as Curry did.

KD was awarded with the NBA Finals MVP, making it back-to-back. trophies on both fronts.

8 - LeBron James

It was LeBron's quietest game of the NBA Finals as he finished with 23 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists. Still leading the team in both scoring and assists numbers. He checked out with four minutes remaining and was met with a loud chorus of MVP chants.

7 - JaVale McGee

Only Kevin Durant had a higher plus/minus with McGee ending the contest +21. On the floor for only 16 minutes but backed up Steve Kerr's move to insert him into the starting role. His remarkable efficiency throughout the series saw him finish 16-of--20 from the field.

6 - Kevin Love

He finished with the equal-worst plus/minus as he struggled to have a similar impact like he did during the opening three games. He had a tough time getting his shot off as the Warriors defense clamped down.

6 - Klay Thompson

Did not score a single point in the entire first half, then came the third quarter and Klay helped the Warriors put the game beyond doubt with 10 points in the period. Two quiet games to end the Finals from Klay but he is always a threat from deep.

6 - Draymond Green

The Warriors' Swiss-army knife, Green finished with 9 points, 9 assists and 3 blocks to go along with his always energetic defensive play that caused the Cavaliers severe headaches throughout the series.

5 - J.R. Smith

Scored all 10 of his points in the opening half, then vanished during the second half when the Cavaliers needed him the most.

5 - Rodney Hood

He should have been inserted into the rotations from the opening tip of the NBA Finals, but he struggled to deliver when the game was up for grabs. He finished with a near double-double, however he grabbed the majority of his numbers after the Warriors had sealed the outcome.
