James spectacular again, but his efforts not enough for Cavs

James spectacular again, but his efforts not enough for Cavs

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - In a tightly called Game 5 of the NBA Finals, it was a no-call involving Kevin Durant that helped the Golden State Warriors pull away from the Cleveland Cavaliers. "But at the end of the day from when I played him in the 2012 Finals to now, experience is the best teacher in life, and he's just experiencing and experiencing and experiencing".

The third time around, there was no doubt.

Golden State have won their second National Basketball Association championship in three seasons after claiming a 4-1 series victory over Cleveland.

"Getting that first championship for me was like having my first son", James said. "And we've witnessed his greatness and how lopsided it made things". The commissioner believes in celebrating excellence and using Golden State as a way to raise the bar.

Cleveland stormed back from a 3-1 series deficit to win last year's finals against Golden State after the Warriors knocked off the Cavaliers in the 2015 finals. "We're going down as one of the best teams ever, and that's a special thing you can not take away from us".

Following the game, Durant paid tribute to Cavaliers' LeBron James, who scored a game-high 41 points.

"Teams and franchises are going to be trying to figure out ways that they can put personnel together, the right group of guys together to be able to hopefully compete against this team", James said.

Earlier, she announced she would form a majority government with the Democratic Unionist Party to keep the Tories in power. There is also the potential that this result may also delay or disrupt Brexit talks, which are due to start this month.

But now LeBron (3-5 in the Finals) becomes just the fourth player - and first in decades - to lose five times in the title round. The 2017 Game 5, which averaged a 14.0 rating , ultimately fetched 20.5 million viewers and a 7.6 rating among adults 18-49.

The scientists then multiplied those numbers by the number of women born in that country or who had a parent born in that country. Talbot Sleater, a 62-year-old construction foreman, said that the Seattle protest was the first of the kind that he had attended.


"I ain't got to say nothing", Durant said, as if that was all he had to say.

"It was unbelievable. The energy in this building from the time we stepped foot on the floor was on 12 out of 10".

But the statistic most will point to after Cleveland's loss to Golden State is James' 3-5 record record in the Finals. Stephen Curry added 34 points, 10 assists and six rebound after a sluggish Game 4 performance.

When the game became two-on-two, Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue observed, his team had little chance.

"If Kevin Durant was the consolation for (last year's) loss, thanks for the loss", Draymond Green said. "That's a tough play to stop".

But seriously, we're all here for Curry and Durant's bromance. "It was phenomenal to be a part of". Paul George would fit the bill, as he helped IN put up the best showing against the Cleveland Cavaliers IN the playoffs leading up to the NBA Finals by averaging 28 points along with 8.8 rebounds, 7.3 assists, and 1.8 steals. So for me personally I have no reason to put my head down.

"I left everything on the floor every game, all five games", he said.
