Warriors beat Cavaliers to clinch NBA title

Officials huddle in Game 4

Kevin Durant, the MVP of the finals led the way for the Warriors with 39 points.

After suffering the greatest collapse in NBA Finals history, the Golden State Warriors got their revenge on the Cleveland Cavaliers, defeating them in five games (with a 129-120 victory in the final face-off) to win the 2017 NBA Finals.

Durant was center stage with his mother, Wanda, as Oracle Arena rocked and swayed from the boisterous, frenzied sellout crowd celebrating the franchise's fifth title and second in three years. Then again, few had a player like James, who set an NBA Finals record with his ninth triple-double in Game 4, or Irving, who scored 40 points. There is no room for excuses and a win in Game 5 for Warriors will cap off an incredible Playoffs, where Kevin Durant has excelled in all the departments in the debut season. Durant appeared to commit his third foul on the play, but the officials let it go and the game quickly turned. However, the Cavs still remain on the brink of elimination as the series heads back to Los Angeles, with the Warriors a favorite to clinch the title at home.

It was the second time he and Durant had met in a finals series, following 2012 when James and the Miami Heat beat Durant's Oklahoma City Thunder 4-1.

DUP leader says talks with Britain's Conservatives 'positive'
Davis revealed that the United Kingdom government had sketched out contingency plans for a possible no-deal outcome. The DUP leader is nearly certain to ask for greater investment in Northern Ireland as the price of a deal.

The average resale price on the team site for Game 5 is $1,731, which is nearly 20 percent higher than last year's Game 5 between the Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers ($1,444). "It's tough to get back and get matched, especially with their speed". I doubt he has the time to worry about what Alex Trebek says on Jeopardy - he's too busy trying to score and stop LeBron James on the other end of the floor.

The Golden State Warriors are right where they were last: up 3-1 in the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers. In blowing the lead in Game 3, the Cavaliers missed 8 of their 10 uncontested shots; in Game 4, they made 12 of their 23 unguarded looks. So you just got to take it tomorrow, and it's on us.

It will be interesting to see how will Cavs deal with the situation if Durant, Curry and Thompson deliver the goods in Oakland. "I would hope we're more ready, more prepared tonight".

James hit a 3-pointer on the next possession and the Cavs didn't go away, cutting a 17-point deficit to three in the opening minute of the fourth quarter with help from Smith's 25 points.
