Warriors Win It All

June 14, 2017

The Golden State Warriors, eight plus point favorites, won their second NBA title in three seasons, beating the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers (129-120), to win the series in 5 games.

Series MVP, Kevin Durant was brilliant scoring 39 points, while Steph Curry had 34 to pace the Warriors, as they clinched an NBA title in their West Coast home for the first time.

2015 title series MVP, Andre Iguodala contributed mightily, scoring 20 points. LeBron James led all scorers with 41 points, but where was he to stem the tide during a (28-4) Golden State run that put them well ahead? Alas during that period he had no points and more telling, took but two shots.

It is the third time the Warriors’ franchise won a crown in a game 5 home game, as both Philadelphia Warriors’ titles (1947 and 1956) were won in such a way.

Last year and it still hurts, the record breaking 73 win Warriors failed to repeat, just as the defending champion Warriors also failed, forty years earlier. The ’16 Warriors failed 60 years after the ’56 Philadelphia Warriors won it all.

Now 70 years after the Philadelphia Warriors won the first NBA crown, the Warriors under Steve Kerr (with help from ’07 Finals losing coach Mike Brown, then with the Cavs), who won his 7th title (5 as a player, now two as a coach) have won the NBA championship.
