2017 NBA Champions {Video} Congratulations MVP Kevin Durant & Golden State Beat Lebron James’ Cleveland Cavs | Highlights

Published On June 13, 2017 | By admin | Local & Worldwide News

After the Golden State Warriors failed to finish off the Cleveland Cavaliers in last year’s N.B.A. finals, blowing a 3-1 lead in the series, they knew they needed to get better if they wanted to go from a one-time title winner to a dynasty. So the team aggressively pursued superstar Kevin Durant in free agency. The former M.V.P. was worth every penny, leading the Warriors to their second championship in three years.

 

 

Durant, who became just the sixth player in N.B.A. history to score 30 or more points in each game of a finals, had 39 in the series-clinching Game 5 victory. He proved his value all over the court with dominant play inside, great outside shooting and tenacious defense as the Warriors beat the Cavaliers 129-120.

In a tear-filled interview on the court after the game, Durant said he had not slept in two days and was anxious and jittery before the game, but all of that was over now.

“We prevailed,” Durant said. “We’re champions and we did it on our own floor.”
