Durant vindicates decision to join Warriors with Finals win

LeBron James falls to 3-5 in NBA Finals

LeBron James falls to 3-5 in NBA Finals

- The Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night in the 2017 NBA Finals Championship, and the fans controlled themselves - for the most part.

The Warriors' victory on Monday night peaked with 29.5 million viewers and was an increase of 20 per cent from the 20.9 million who watched Game 5 past year.

This was the first time in NBA history the same two teams met in the NBA Finals for a third straight time. In the third straight #Nba Finals that these teams have played each other, the victor was finally able to celebrate the championship on their home court. The All-Star forward has been the subject of trade rumblings in the past and his name is certain to surface this summer as contending teams look for that missing piece to close the gap on Golden State.

But Durant was quick to congratulate last year's champions. In Game 5, the Cavs' allegedly deep bench was outscored 35-7, with Cleveland reserves going 2-for-9 from the field and 1-for-6 on 3-pointers, their alleged specialty.

Coach Steve Kerr cried.

Back in February, Golden State star Stephen Curry said he thought Trump was an asset to the country - " "if you remove the 'et, '" Curry said.

The Warriors inbounded the ball, let the clock run out, and both Warriors fans and Cavaliers bettors started their celebrations.

Durant, who had joined forces with another superstar in Steph Curry alongside Draymond Green and Klay Thompson to form an incredible force, led the way in Game 5 with 39 points to help the team to record books. "There was never any question in my mind that this was going to work".

James finished with 41 points, 13 rebounds, eight assists and two steals. The back problems that sidelined him last season had resurfaced and forced him back on an operating table to stop a slow leak of spinal fluid. When asked earlier if the season if he'd visit the White House should his team win, Warriors guard Shaun Livingston said he'd skip the ceremony. The Cavs needed James on the court for nearly the entire game just to have a chance to win. "And I think that's done on goal".

"Teams and franchises are going to be trying to figure out ways that they can put personnel together, the right group of guys together to be able to hopefully compete against this team". "I have no reason to put my head down". "If you want to win, it doesn't matter".
