Golden State Warriors win fifth NBA title

FOURTH STRAIGHT? Will the Warriors and Cavs face each other again in the NBA Finals for a fourth straight year?

After joining the Warriors in July 2016 - a decision which caused shockwaves in the National Basketball Association world among talk of a GSW "super team" - it took Durant just one season to win his first championship.

"I just wanted to come in there and just be me". "This is something we want to continue to do".

The party began as soon as Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and the Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 at Oracle Arena to clinch their second championship in three years Monday night.

Love would be a great first option on many National Basketball Association teams and the Cavaliers could trade him for Paul George or Carmelo Anthony. Letting Game 3 get away from us and then coming back to this gym, we knew it was going to be tough, but I thought our mindset was right. "I'm just going to play the game". The Cavaliers head coach could not make the team function properly when LeBron James was on the bench, and they struggled a lot because of it. "Pretty much all [the Warriors'] big-name guys are in their 20s, and they're showing no signs of slowing down". Obviously the best team in the league for the last three years, the best team this year.

Durant shot 14 of 20 overall and 5 of 8 on 3-pointers, hitting three of his threes during the critical second-quarter run that lasted more than seven minutes and turned a 41-33 deficit into a 61-45 advantage. "It's fun to be part of this". "It's a championship. It's a great feeling".

However, two Los Angeles Clippers superstars, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, will also be on the free-agent market this year. How does he not compromise the squad needed to fight past rivals to reach the finals?

The Warriors became the first Bay Area team to capture a championship at home since the A's finished the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 5 of the 1974 World Series.

"They're going to be around for a while". But like I said, we'll all figure something out. Kevin Love had a bad night with only 6 points.

Curry, who is eligible for a five-year, $205 million extension, added: "It would mean everything [to stay together]".

Golden State went 67-15 this season in locking up the top seed in the Western Conference. It's such unselfish nature that has helped the Warriors flourish.

He said it keeps him grounded even in the spotlight.

And Durant knows James will soon be working on new ways to dethrone the Warriors.
