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

16 June, 2017, 06:31 | Author: Glenda Knight

The Warriors on Monday night defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers to win the NBA Championship, their second in three years.

"We're going down as one of the best teams ever and that's a special thing you can not take away from us", Warriors reserve Andre Iguodala said. Kerr's team set an National Basketball Association record for regular-season wins with 73 last season and returned to the Finals, but lost to Cleveland in seven games. It's the first championship won by a Bay Area team in their home arena, since the 1974 Oakland Athletics won the World Series. We have the parade, we just won a title.

"Experience is the best teacher in life, and he's just experiencing and experiencing", he said.

"And that last three minutes was a blur just of pure emotion and energy". We'll see what happens. And they could thank Kevin Durant for that.

It's entirely possible that if invited, some members of the team wouldn't go as evidenced by past comments made by members of their organization.

"We don't want that to taint what we've accomplished this year".

"I wouldn't call it revenge", Iguodala said. "What will get us over this hump", Green asked himself, "and make us incredible?"

Golden State's win gave the franchise its fifth National Basketball Association title, which ties the San Antonio Spurs for the fourth most in league history.

"It's hard to compare to what that feeling was the first time, but it's pretty darn close", Curry said. "From my eyes, they're built to last a few years". "It was incredible to just see that all year, and right now just to be here with these guys, it's wonderful".

Durant averaged 35 points, eight rebounds and five assists per game, but the impressive part is he did it shooting 56 percent from the field.

"I think I answered, 'I wouldn't go.' I still feel like that today", he said at the team facility. "We will make those decisions when and if the time comes". "He felt like he needed to reassemble and reassess his career and come here". "And when Steph turned that corner, I think it was after Christmas Day, when he turned that corner, we became nearly unbeatable". "When he turned that corner, we became nearly unbeatable".

"I was expecting more", coach Steve Kerr told KTVU-TV, joking about the size of the crowd.

"He has had an wonderful career, but he took it to the next level". "It was fantastic to just see that all year, and right now just to be here with these guys, it's wonderful". "I'm so happy Kevin has broken through and there's more to come from him". "We don't even have to speak about it", Iguodala said. "But then all of a sudden you're faced with the reality that the man who's gonna lead you has routinely used racist, misogynist, insulting words".
