Golden State Warriors win the NBA Finals

Following Monday's win, he embraced his mother, Wanda Durant, on the court.

"What about Stephen Curry out there?"

After averaging a triple-double over the five games, James knew there was little more he or his teammates could have done to beat a Golden State Warriors team that proved too talented this year with the addition of Finals MVP Durant. I'm just so happy Kevin has broken through.

Monday night's win, which gave Golden State their second National Basketball Association title in the past three seasons, capped a near-perfect run through this year's playoffs and avenged last year's loss to LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers.

After two comfortable home wins at Oracle Arena and a thriller in the Game 3 in Cleveland, the Warriors suffered its first loss of the post-season in Game 4 against a defiant title-holder on the ropes.

"We were able to get them a year ago, and they went out and got one of the best players that this league has ever seen", James said. "Our perspective, being blessed to play on this stage three years in a row, it's for these fans, for our organization, for these families". Their run was better than anything Bill Russell or Larry Bird did in Boston, so they should be able to claim a spot on the list of the NBA's best teams ever. "I'm ready to do it again".

The 28-year-old American averaged 35.2 points, 8.4 rebounds and 5.4 assists in the best-of-seven Finals, which the Warriors wrapped up in five games. Kyrie Irving, scored a quiet 26 points as he was held to 9 from 22 shooting by the impressive Warriors defense.

Come Game 5 early this morning and the hot coffee in the kettle was not as hot as Kevin Durant's performance in what was to become the last game of the 2016/17 season. ". Getting that first championship for me was like having my first son".

This time, James and Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving dragged the team to one dominant victory, in Game Four, while they blew an 11-point lead in Game Three. The Cavs never were closer than eight points the rest of the way.

Durant, with 39 in last night's clincher, was the difference in what was one of the easiest MVP votes in the history of the Finals.

Cleveland star LeBron James played in his seventh consecutive finals and eighth career finals, falling to 3-5. "They're so fast, they get out in transition". Thompson and Smith confronted West and all three of those players got technical fouls.

Iguodala gave everything he could in a decisive Game 5.

Curry shot 10 of 20, converted 12 of his 15 free throw attempts, found time for six rebounds and completed a double-double with a game-high 10 assists. As a student of the game, it would be a disservice to myself if I didn't try to learn as much as possible while I'm playing with this guy. "He's had an unbelievable career, but he just took it to the next level", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of Durant. Twelve of the Warriors' 16 playoff wins this postseason were by double digits.
