Golden State Warriors take NBA title

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant reacts after scoring against the Cleveland Cavaliers. But that Heat team wasn't as good, or as talented, as this Warriors team.

The Golden State Warriors celebrate after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 to win the 2017 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on June 12, 2017 in Oakland, California. Paul George would fit the bill, as he helped IN put up the best showing against the Cleveland Cavaliers IN the playoffs leading up to the NBA Finals by averaging 28 points along with 8.8 rebounds, 7.3 assists, and 1.8 steals. After the Cavs brought Cleveland its first major sports championship in 52 years, the Warriors knew they had to do something to take down the defending champions. He won a championship, and then we were close and didn't win one.

Golden State completed an unprecedented 16-1 run through the National Basketball Association playoffs, registering the second-best average playoff point differential (plus-13.5) in league history.

James hit a 3-pointer on the next possession and the Cavs didn't go away, cutting a 17-point deficit to three in the opening minute of the fourth quarter with help from Smith's 25 points.

While the former Oklahoma City Thunder star was clearly a deserving choice, there's a case that could be made that Lebron James was the better option - even though his Cavaliers managed to win just one game during the series. Not only would the trade give Cleveland a much better chance of beating Golden State, it would allow IN to remain relevant without George, who is widely rumored to be leaving IN free agency at the end of next season. "They showcased that throughout the postseason, and we were another opponent in their way".

Curry zipped up and down the court ending the game with 34 points, 10 assists, and six rebounds.

"To go up against somebody I view as like a rival, personally, is an unbelievable feeling to beat him", Durant claimed. "From my eyes, they're built to last a few years". "That's a tough play to stop". He felt the Warriors needed the second-best player in the world to added to a 73-win team to defeat James.

Still, if Durant were giving out the award, he might actually give it to someone who's never logged a minute in the National Basketball Association. "It was phenomenal to be a part of".

James finished with 41 points, 13 rebounds, eight assists and two steals. "I left everything I had out on the floor every single game for five games in this Finals, and you come up short". History says it would have been dwarfed by what the third straight meeting between the Warriors and Cavaliers generated.

The bench shot 22 percent while the starting unit shot 57 percent.

"A lot of guys cried because they wanted it bad", Lue reported of the postgame scene in the Cleveland locker room.

Sure, the Warriors missed becoming the first undefeated champion, but 16-1 still gave Golden State the best winning percentage of any title team at.941.

With the core of Durant, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green all expected to return for at least the next couple of years, the Warriors could be just in the beginning of a dynasty. The Warriors have three, trailing the San Francisco 49ers (five) and Oakland Athletics (four).
