Warriors take rubber series for 2nd title in 3 years

The Golden State Warriors won the National Basketball Association championship over the Cleveland Cavaliers Monday night.

Though the Cavaliers led 37-33 at the end of the first quarter, Golden State soon reasserted their dominance by winning the second 38-23 to lead 71-60 at half-time.

After guiding the squad to its second championship in three years, Kerr was visibly emotional with tears.

Thompson started out this series quiet as he had just 6 points on 3 of 16 shooting and missed all 5 three point attempts in game 1.

Kevin Durant's love and respect for his mother Wanda is well known. The Cavs proved that when they were healthy, they were the better team. Without their best player, the Warriors would have had more difficulty matching up with James and Kyrie Irving.

Durant was voted the unanimous finals MVP after scoring at least 30 points in every game and averaging 35.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.6 blocks.

But he said: "It's a team sport". It's kind of insane to think about the conversations we had this summer and going into the year about how we can both mesh and do what we do and be the players that we are.

LeBron James has now lost five Finals in eight appearances - only the fourth player to come up short in five NBA Finals But has won three of those 5 finals.

It's going to take some creativity to get this roster going, but if there's one thing Cavs fans have watched from Dan Gilbert, it's that the Cleveland owner will be bold.

ABC will likely see final adjustments from Nielsen secure the series as its most-watched (on average) in almost 20 years, though the series' conclusion won't reach the highs of last year's Game 7. "You made us believe", he added.

The growing up of the Thunder has been one of the NBA's great stories in recent years, the Warrior's buying another championship and Kevin Durant selling out for one, is the worst story in recent years.

Durant has now scored 25 points or more in each of his first 10 finals games - a feat previously achieved only by Michael Jordan and Shaquille O'Neal. He had 10 points, 12 rebounds and five assists in the clincher.
