Warriors top Cavs for title

Warriors top Cavs for title

Durant has attracted ire for his decision to join the Warriors, who won 73 games a year ago but lost a 3-1 lead in the 2016 Finals to James' Cleveland Cavaliers. Last summer, Durant, who made a decision to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder in free agency, elected to join forces with another superstar in Stephen Curry as well as Draymond Green and Klay Thompson to make Golden State a super team, and the group was close to unstoppable in the regular season and postseason. "Our perspective, being blessed to play on this stage three years in a row, it's for these fans, for our organization, for these families".

"I just wanted to come in there and just be me". "They beat us, but I'm pretty sure we'll be back and we'll be ready to battle again".

In 2012, LeBron James sought out Kevin Durant after the Miami Heat had wrapped up a 4-1 NBA Finals series win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Their one title came past year when the Cavs became the first National Basketball Association team to rally from a 3-1 Finals deficit to deliver the city its first major championship since 1964.

The Cavs superstar finished the series with averages of 33.6 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists over five games. Then it was Golden State's turn again, taking the title in five games. During his post-game acceptance speech, Kevin pointed to his mother and told her, "We did it".

High-profile recruit Durant was the difference as the Warriors wrapped up a 4-1 series triumph on home court in Oakland.

The Cavaliers forward averaged a triple-double during the 2017 NBA Finals, but it wasn't enough to prevent the Cavaliers from losing in five games to the Warriors.

With their second championship in three seasons, the Warriors have established their place in history among the greatest teams ever.

"Teams and franchises are going to be trying to figure out ways that they can put personnel together, the right group of guys together to be able to hopefully compete against this team", James said.

"Well I'm not happy he won his first, I'm not happy at all", James said. The starters also received very good support off the bench with Andre Iguodala knocking down 20 and even Patrick McCaw chiming in with six points. Thompson and West went at each other face to face.

LeBron James led the Cavaliers with 41 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists but it proved in vain as the home team came out on top.

"I hear all the narratives throughout the season that I was joining, I was hopping on bandwagons, I was letting everybody else do the work", Durant said. "And that's all you can ask".

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue lamented a game-ending 11-0 Golden State run to win game three.
