Golden State Warriors beat Cleveland Cavaliers to win National Basketball Association title

Posted June 14, 2017

I have no reason to look back at what I could have done or what I shouldn't have done or what I could have done better for the team.

In the Finals loss to Golden State - a 129-120 victory in Game 5 secured the championship for the Warriors - James became the first player to average a triple double in the finals, posting 33.6 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists per game.

The Cavs fought until the end.

We started by wanting your prediction, where the majority of you said the Cavs would take the series in six games.

Last night's game was also up 13% in MM numbers from Game 5 of the 2015 NBA Finals, a series that went on to see the Warriors bring home their first championship since 1975.

"Well I'm not happy he won his first, I'm not happy at all", James said. Be it the playing style of Westbrook or something else, it just wasn't working the way they hoped and had hit the proverbial wall as a team.

The Warriors may be champions, but LeBron is still the King. Bill Russell has the record with 10 in a row. Kerr's team set an National Basketball Association record for regular-season wins with 73 last season and returned to the Finals, but lost to Cleveland in seven games.

The Warriors could outrun teams like the Showtime Lakers and outgun them like Michael Jordan's Bulls _ and Golden State had a more dominant postseason than either. Is it Kareem Abdul-Jabbar?

All-Stars that season: Abdul-Jabbar, Robertson, coach Larry Costello. One of the greatest players of all time had one of the greatest playoff series of all time, and it was good enough to get him a single win.

Through Game 4, and with minor lifts from streaming, the Finals had been averaging 19.8 million viewers. He was almost flawless in Game 5, scoring 39 points on 14-of-20 shooting with seven rebounds and five assists. The 9-0 burst was completed after Kevin Love picked up his second foul in a game the officials are calling a little tighter after the physical play in Game 4. "I'm not happy at all".

In the fourth quarter, James scored 14 points. For the latest episode of SportsJOE Live we took over the Sugar Club in Dublin.

Durant and Curry were always right in the middle, yet they stayed loose and focused by building their own relationship - not to mention shooting skills - through regular shooting contests that were oh so close.

Durant was named the Most Valuable Player of the NBA Finals on Monday after claiming an elusive NBA championship over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Jordan led the league in scoring and Rodman in rebounding, and their three stars were perhaps the league's best defensive players at their positions, making it almost impossible to score against the Bulls at times. Barring injury, tragedy, and/or multiple Kardashians dating Warriors players, they are going to win the title next year.

Golden State completed an unprecedented 16-1 run through the National Basketball Association playoffs, registering the second-best average point differential (plus-13.5) in league history.

Future Hall of Famers on team: To be determined. He would have been a scoring machine for the Green, and that would have only been part of his contribution. The San Francisco Giants are tied with the Warriors with three, while the Oakland Raiders have two (not counting the Raiders' title during their stint in Los Angeles).
