Warriors beat Cavaliers to clinch National Basketball Association title

Galena Nuncio | 13 Junio, 2017, 18:30

When talking about Finals MVP Kevin Durant after the game, Stephen Curry said one title was not the number the pair were thinking about.

The reigning NBA Coach of the Year returned for Game 2 of the Finals following a six-week absence from the bench.

Durant did indeed join a ready-made contender by teaming up with two-time reigning league MVP Stephen Curry on a team that won it all in 2015 and were runners-up a year ago after a season in which they had a record 73 wins in 82 games.

Cavaliers forward LeBron James was the highest scorer on the night with 41 points and early in the second quarter they appeared to be in the driver's seat, having built an eight-point lead.

J.R. Smith's three-point shooting percentage - (17-for-27) - over the last three games of the 2017 Finals after going 1-for-6 from the floor, including 1-of-4 from deep through the first two contests.

All those jokes about the Golden State Warriors blowing a 3-1 series lead to lose the 2016 championship can come to an end now.

Of all the vehicles tested by NHTSA, only the Tesla Model S bested the Model X for the lowest probability of injury in a crash. Tesla claims that Model X owners have a 93 percent probability of walking away from a crash without serious injury.

"We were heartbroken last year, but this year was our turn and we're obviously quite happy", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

Here's hoping that the two future Hall of Famers face off in more Finals to come. If a superstar can get about the same salary by switching to a much better team, there's little incentive not to do so. "I just wanted to come in there and just be me".

But he said: "It's a team sport". "You don't want to take a step back. To play with these guys is wonderful".

But he offered a glimpse of what more he could offer by averaging more than 30 points per game during a 4-1 series win over the Cavaliers in the Finals. It took him until his third Finals appearance to get a championship, when his Heat beat the Thunder in the 2012 Finals.

"We're going down as one of the best teams ever and that's a special thing you can not take away from us", Warriors reserve Andre Iguodala said.

"I told him we're tied up now and we're going to try to do this thing again, but I'm going to celebrate this one tonight", Durant revealed of their conversation.

Warriors beat Cavs 129 -120 to win NBA title
Led by LeBron James' 41 points, the Cavaliers hung within 108-102 with 8:29 to play on a 3-pointer by Kyle Korver . Though the lead changed several times early in Game 5, it was all the Warriors in the back end of the game.

One of the fans watching the players go through their pregame routines was Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

James said in a press conference screened on nba.com: "I'm not happy he won his first - I'm not happy at all".

James wrapped his arm around Irving and simply said: "We'll be back, me and you". "And we did it together".

But there was to be no repeat of that slipup as Spanish and La Liga giants Barca paid tribute to the Warriors, who ended the postseason with a 16-1 win-loss record. The Cavs offense stagnated during that stretch as Cleveland missed 9 of 11 shots from the field, turned the ball over three times and had two missed free throws from Kevin Love.

"I'm talking too much at this point", Durant said. "He left it all out there on the floor, and to average a triple-double in the freaking Finals, man, add that to the LeBron long list that everyone keeps forgetting". In the other three quarters, Cleveland held a four-point advantage.

Sony and Supermassive Games announce The Inpatient for PlayStation VR
The fact that it's VR does make it interesting though, and we imagine it probably uses Farpoint's aim controller. This is exactly what it looks like, as odd as that may seem: a fishing sim set in the world of Final Fantasy XV.
