Warriors are NBA champions in nearly perfect run through playoffs

He contributed 39 points, seven rebounds and five assists in the 129-120 game-five title clincher, claiming his first National Basketball Association title as the Warriors' won their second in three seasons.

For Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue, the physical turn the NBA Finals took in Game 4 is just what he wanted and is the recipe he hopes the Cavaliers will follow for the rest of the series against the Golden State Warriors.

Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors are five minutes away from a title.

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. With Miami, James beat Durant and the Thunder in the Finals in 2012.

For James, already a three-times champion, the loss puts him in rare company as only the fourth player to come up short in five NBA Finals.

Golden State Warriors Kevin Durant says he couldn't sleep for two days before game five of the NBA Finals.

Curry, who laced up a mostly white pair of the Under Armour Curry 4 on Monday, scored 34 points on 10-of-20 shooting.

At the end, the gutted Cavaliers gathered in the locker room and emotions took over.

MVP Durant, Curry lead Warriors to NBA title
Rookie Patrick McCaw had a couple of deft scoring plays (and an all-time wtf foul when Kyrie Irving tripped on his own get at me). James above all would not let them and nearly inexplicably, the Cavs were within five points, 98-93, entering the fourth quarter.

Joe Root was all class in his in his unbeaten 133-run knock that never gave Bangladesh any chance to score an upset win. Bangaldesh are winless after falling to England while Australia's game against New Zealand was washed out.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions to testify in public on Tuesday
He told lawmakers previously at his January confirmation hearing that he had not met with Russians during the campaign. Sessions could be asked about that part of Comey's testimony, as well as his role in Comey's firing last month .

James scored 41 points to lead Cleveland. The reigning NBA Coach of the Year returned for Game 2 of the Finals following a six-week absence from the bench.

J.R. Smith hit another 3-pointer and LeBron James scored on a hard putback to help Cleveland cut a deficit that was 17 in the second quarter to eight, 86-77, with five minutes to play in the third quarter. That was Durant's first Finals. Early in the second half, the Cavaliers managed to narrow the Warriors lead, but were never able to draw level. I thought we played well, got better each game, but against good teams you can't give away games like Game 3 at home and then expect to come here and win in a hostile environment.

Golden State Warriors won their second NBA Championship in three years.

"Well, it's a two-sided question because for me personally - I don't know", James said.

That's when tensions and emotions bubbled over after a heated rebound battle, leading to a face-to-face confrontation between Golden State's David West and Cleveland's Tristan Thompson. Two courtside seats reportedly went for $133 000 on the resale market while other pairs of seats went for $82 000 and $90 000. Kyrie Irving added 26 points and J.R. Smith chipped in with 25.

Kevin Love is scoreless for the Cavs, who have turned it over 11 times. His rim-rattling tomahawk slam in the second quarter ignited Oracle arena and kicked off a game-changing 30-8 scoring run. So for me personally I have no reason to put my head down.

Kerr didn't like his team's energy heading into the game. And understanding how things work, not only just in the game, but off the court, things that matter, just taking care of your body, understanding the magnitude of what the goal is at hand and what steps it takes in order to achieve that goal.
