Durant's non-foul looms large in Warriors' game-deciding run

Durant and the Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers, 129-120, in Game Five, winning the series 4-1.

Saying that Kevin Durant made the Warriors both better and different is obviously not compelling television.

"I couldn't sleep for two days", Durant, who was named the Finals MVP, said during an on-court interview. In short: if the Warriors had turned to it for longer stretches of times, it would have annihilated the Cavs. I just wanted to put it all out there. "In the context of keeping the team together, if there are decisions that need to be made, we'll talk about it for sure". James ranks third in all-time finals scoring with 1,247 points, trailing only Jerry West with 1,679 and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, just 70 points ahead of James.

While the "King" was not able to collect his fourth ring, he still managed to become the first person to average a triple-double (33.6 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists) in the NBA Playoffs. "All the pieces that we have are important to the equation of winning a championship and competing for a championship every single year". He won a championship, and then we were close and didn't win one. "I have no reason to look back at what I could have done or what I shouldn't have done or what I could have done better for the team".

This was James' eight Finals appearance, and his seventh consecutive, joining an elite group of Boston Celtics players from the 1950s and 1960s to play in seven straight Finals.

ERIC WESTERVELT, BYLINE: The Warriors started the game sluggish and trailed at the end of the first quarter, but it was a Kevin Durant dunk, followed by his clutch shooting that helped spark a 21-2 second quarter run. His name was even trending on Twitter shortly after Golden State clinched the title as social media wondered if Cleveland could land him in the offseason.

"I really feel that my views would keep me from going and visiting", Livingston told 95.7 The Game. And it was just a matter of time before we were going to break through. "We had that huge run in the second quarter, which changed everything". He was their best player, racking up 35.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, 5.4 assists, and 1.6 blocks per game.

Curry sank a contested 3-pointer with less than a minute remaining in the game to hammer in the final nail in the Cavaliers' coffin.

Steve Kerr is expected to return to the Golden State Warriors' sideline after the team won its second National Basketball Association championship in three seasons under Kerr's direction on Monday night, Warriors general manager Bob Myers confirmed.

They could outrun teams like the Showtime Lakers and outgun them like Michael Jordan's Bulls - and the Golden State Warriors had a more dominant postseason than either.

After answering one final question following an extended stay at the podium, the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player felt like he might have said more than he should. Per Nielsen, the latest chapter in the history of the Cleveland-Golden State rivalry averaged a 7.4 in the core TV demo, which works out to just shy of 9.5 million adults 18-49. I'll have that mindset, KD's going to have that mindset, I know Dre, Shaun, all the guys that are up for negotiating a new contract.
