NBA Finals: The Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers to win title

Jun 13, 2017 |

The Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers to regain the NBA Championship with a 4-1 series win.

The Warriors secured a 129-120 victory on Monday to take their second title in three seasons and cap a near-perfect run through the play-offs.

Golden State beat Cleveland in the 2015 Finals only to lose to them last year, squandering a 3-1 series lead.

Warriors forward Kevin Durant, 28, was named the Most Valuable Player of the Finals.

“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.”

For the third year in succession the two teams met in the Finals, but after going 3-0 down this time around, Cleveland were only able to pull one game back before the Warriors secured the trophy in game five.
