Warriors' Game 5 win wraps up highly-watched NBA Finals

Warriors' Game 5 win wraps up highly-watched NBA Finals”

Durant's 39 points led the Warriors' charge. Milwaukee clobbered teams by 12.2 points per game and increased that to an NBA-best 14.5 per game in the postseason.

Furthermore, Kevin Durant became the first player since Shaquille O'Neal in the 2000 Finals to score 30 or more points in five straight Finals games. I think it's just the ignorance, the convenient ignorance.

Kerr won the NBA's Coach of the Year Award for the 2015-16 season.

The Warriors won the title in 2015 before the Cavaliers made their historic comeback previous year. Attendance in a rather ho-hum regular season many thought was just a prelude to the Warriors-Cavs championship series, was at all-time high levels.

As unforgettable for the rest of the National Basketball Association was the way the Warriors attacked the season, blending Durant's inside power with Curry and Klay Thompson's outside shooting to create a deadly combination and potentially long-lasting one. The 7-foot (2.13 m) small forward and 2017 Finals MVP has said that after his controversial decision leave the Oklahoma City Thunder and join the Warriors last offseason, he is not eager to move again. In this series, I just stayed in the moment. DubsOn7: Golden State Warriors 2017 victory parade & rally in OaklandCybelle's Pizza will have extra pies on hand at their Broadway location. Corden asked as Durant responded: "No, we wanted to sweep them". Everybody for the last 10 years knew how good he was, but until you break through and win that first championship, there's always still something there.

The Warriors have four players who can command max salary contracts and even if each of them agrees to take a discount, it's unlikely it's to the extent that the franchise doesn't find itself paying heavy luxury tax.

"Winning is fantastic. I've been so lucky to be part of so many championship teams as a player and now as a coach, and it never gets old", Kerr said after Monday's win.

"I'm happy for him", Curry said.

Veteran power forward David West told The Undefeated's Mark Spears he would "probably" decline any invitation to the residence occupied by a man who said Mexican immigrants brought "drugs" and "crime" to the U.S. and continues to try to push through a travel ban targeting Muslims - an executive order that every court that has had a chance to view, including a federal court in the Warriors' home town of San Francisco, has assessed as unconstitutional.
