Warriors beat Cavs for second title in three years

Pammachio Corsino | 14 Giugno, 2017, 04:42

Golden State finished the playoffs 16-1 when they beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

To go with Durant's numbers on Monday night, Curry had 34 points, 10 assists and six rebounds.

Durant was once again the best player on the floor for the Warriors on Monday, hitting some timely three-pointers en route to a team-high 39 points.

The Warriors won their first 15 playoff games, sweeping out Portland, Utah and San Antonio and seizing a 3-0 lead on Cleveland before the Cavaliers snapped the longest playoff win streak in North American sports history by winning game four Friday in Cleveland.

As fans snapped up victory shirts and hats Tuesday following a night of celebrating, city crews were busy hanging championship banners along the parade route.

Kerr is the fourth coach in National Basketball Association history to win two championships in his first three seasons, joining Phil Jackson (1991, 1992), Bill Russell (1968, 1969) and John Kundla (1949, 1950), according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

To tell the truth, James had nothing to lose coming into the NBA Finals.

This was James' eight Finals appearance, and his seventh consecutive, joining an elite group of Boston Celtics players from the 1950s and 1960s to play in seven straight Finals. In the other three quarters, Cleveland held a four-point advantage. Andre Iguodala, who is right there, he continued to preach that every single day.

If he'd gone for 35 one game or even two games we could have chalked it up to just his talent shining through, to go 30-plus for five games under in those circumstances?

Golden State outscored Cleveland 38-23 in the period on Monday night. He made a driving and-one floater over the outstretched arm of Tristan Thompson, and he got knocked on his ass and brought the Oracle crowd off theirs in the process. Should the Cavs win the title next season, they likely will need to add some pieces.

And when it counted most, when everything was on the line, he produced one of the great, sustained individual performances in recent National Basketball Association history. But Durant is reportedly willing to take less than the max to re-sign with the Warriors. A fabulous first one with and for Durant. Steph Curry followed with a deep 3 of his own to get the Warriors rolling on a 21-2 run. Asked if he had any joy that his friend Kevin Durant finally won a championship, James said, "Well, I'm not happy he won his first".

Kyrie Irving had 26 points while JR Smith had 25.

Durant picked up two fouls in the first quarter while the officiating crew tried to eliminate some of the physical play that was apparent in Game 4. LeBron James had a great series, averaging a triple-double, but he didn't have enough accompanying firepower to battle this Golden State team.

Game 5 of the NBA Finals is off to a much more deliberate start than Game 4's track meet.

The 2017 Game 5, which averaged a 14.0 rating, ultimately fetched 20.5 million viewers and a 7.6 rating among adults 18-49.

His new challenge is to get back on top.

Kyrie Irving scored off of a steal and then LeBron James picked off the inbound pass and converted another layup for a 13-9 lead. Swapping Kevin Love for Paul George wouldn't make a three-game difference for the Cavs.

A tight whistle would seemingly favor the Warriors, who rely more on ball movement and cutting.
