Durant's non-foul looms large in Warriors' game-deciding run

Pammachio Corsino | 14 Giugno, 2017, 03:31

The 89 points Golden State finished with that evening would stand as its lowest total of the season with Durant in the lineup.

The capacity crowd, most dressed in Warrior gold T-shirts, cheered and sang along with the tune "We Are The Champions" as confetti fell. We drove from Birmingham to Memphis that Saturday to see the greatest show on earth, and it was like watching circus elephants rise up in front-legs-to-backside formation, then tumble like dominoes.

Following the victory Monday night, spontaneous celebrations broke out in streets around Oakland. Chamberlain's 19.2 rebounds per game topped the league. They led at the half by 11.

James scored 41 points in the loss, adding 13 rebounds and 8 assists.

However, for much of the league, Curry's sentiment is right - the Warriors are getting started. Somehow that made seeing that team reach the finish line Monday night all the more satisfying.

After dropping last year's title to Cleveland making the greatest comeback in NBA Finals history from a 3-1 deficit, the Warriors vowed not to stumble again. The Warriors won 129-120 to win the National Basketball Association championship. And throughout the Finals, it often looked as though they were listening to him. "That's a tough play to stop".

Kerr joked after the game, "Actually we had very little talent, it was mostly coaching". "These guys are so gifted and committed to each other and so unselfish". No amount of scoring titles and MVP awards could quench his ultimate thirst for the real deal: the National Basketball Association championship.

"This is history. We're going down as one of the best teams ever, and that's a special thing you can not take away from us", reserve Andre Iguodala said. "So I'm going to enjoy every last bit of this butt".


It was the second time he and Durant had met in a finals series, following 2012 when James and the Miami Heat beat Durant's Oklahoma City Thunder 4-1.

An advice for The Game: He may want to be careful next time he's in Cleveland!

Consider Klay Thompson. Last year, as everyone knows, the Warriors were a handful of plays from staking "best team ever status" deep in the topsoil.

According to several reports, the Warriors are listed as a minus -200 favourite to repeat as champions next year. "Thank you, I'd like to say redemption is unbelievable".

At one point, this so-called Super Team trailed by 30. Both teams breezed through the playoffs.

But as many have pointed out, it's not working. Thanks to yet another triple double from LeBron, Cleveland stayed within shouting distance until the end, but the Warriors were just too much.

The NBA's new labor deal doesn't expire until 2023. Still, it took an otherworldly shooting performance by the Cavs and conspicuously one-sided officiating on Friday to produce the Warriors' one and only postseason defeat in 17 games.

From here to eternity, we'll say we saw these Warriors go from worst to first. "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 and (to) see it come to life in this series, it was unbelievable".
