Warriors' Game 5 win wraps up highly-watched NBA Finals

Warriors' Game 5 win wraps up highly-watched NBA Finals

For the second time in three years, the Cavaliers fell short of their goal of an NBA Championship against the Warriors, but despite Golden State having a younger roster with players in their primes, small forward LeBron James knows Cleveland will continue shaping the roster with the goal of competing for a title.

"Just the camaraderie, the togetherness, that's what it was about".

"We make each other better and it's not about who gets the credit", Durant said.

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant hoists the Larry O'Brien Trophy after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers in game five of the 2017 NBA Finals at Oracle Arena. Irving commented on the Warriors and their rivalry saying, "They beat us, but I'm pretty sure we'll be back and we'll be ready to battle again". "You just pick yourself back up and you keep pushing and you keep going".

An unprecedented third straight Finals clash between the Warriors and Cavaliers was hyped as the ultimate championship rubber match and expected to be the antidote for a postseason that had little in the way of drama.

Overall, the Warriors are 207-39 during Kerr's tenure as coach. "It's fun to be part of this". Their dominant run over the past three years has been a source of great pride for its famously loyal and raucous fans. "We'll see how long".

The Warriors broke the NBA's regular-season wins record past year, winning 73 games and losing only nine. How does he not compromise the squad needed to fight past rivals to reach the finals?

"Today is all about celebrating our championship", the team said in a statement Tuesday. The Warriors aren't going anywhere and the league will need to improve itself to challenge them. She said, "Look at me boy, look at me.' Your momma was about to spank your ass. So, I'll have that mindset, KD's going to have that mindset".

LeBron James was remarkable in defeat, however. Kyrie Irving followed up his 40-point gem in Friday's Game 4 with 26 points but shot 9 for 22.

It is a tradition in the United States that professional sports teams visit the White House as the Chicago Cubs did in January when they spent time with President Barack Obama after capturing their 2016 Major League Baseball title. It's such unselfish nature that has helped the Warriors flourish. "That's the culture that we built and it's an incredible thing to see". Durant, Curry, Kyrie Erving and James.

"I don't think it's fair to minimize what Kevin offers Golden State and what they offered him to say that it was the weakest move in National Basketball Association history".
