Golden State Warriors conquer NBA Finals ‘17, 4-1

Rising from the ashes last year, the Golden State Warriors reclaim their NBA championship title on June 12 after beating the Cleveland Cavaliers in a 129-120 victory in Game 5 at the Oracle Arena.

Warriors forward Kevin Durant, soared as the Most Valuable Player of the Finals with a career-high 39 points.

“I couldn’t sleep for two days,” Durant said. “I was anxious, I was jittery.

“I just wanted to lay it all out there. I put in work, I just had to trust in it. We were really good tonight.”

According to Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN Stats & Info), Durant became the first player since Shaquille O’Neal in the 2000 NBA Finals with five straight 30-point games in a championship setting.

Following Durant, another Warriors asset Stephen Curry claimed 34 points.

On the other hand, Last year’s finals MVP LeBron James led the Cavaliers with 41 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists.

“I left everything on the floor every game, all five games,” James said. “I have no reason to put my head down.”

“I played against some really, really good teams that were assembled perfectly, and they’re right up there.”

Meanwhile, Monday’s championship win marks the fifth title that the Golden State Warriors bagged in their NBA history.
