Warriors win NBA title, down LeBron, Cavs 105-97 in Game 6

stephen curryRevived by a fresh-faced shooting superstar and a first-year coach who made them believe, the Golden State Warriors again reign supreme. Their 40-year NBA championship drought is finally over. A half century of misery in Cleveland drags on. LeBron James just didn't have enough help. Stephen Curry and finals MVP Andre Iguodala scored 25 points apiece, Draymond Green recorded a triple-double and the Warriors - using a barrage of 3-pointers in the fourth quarter - won their first title since 1975 by finishing off James and the Cavaliers 105-97 on Tuesday night in Game 6. For the first time since Gerald Ford was in the White House, disco was in vogue and Rick Barry was flicking in free throws under-handed, the best pro basketball team resides in the Bay Area. And these Warriors are a lot like Barry and his old crew: fluid, balanced, together. Read more here.

Warriors withstand James, take 3-2 lead over Cavs in finals

stephen curryStephen Curry came off a screen, dribbled behind his back and crossed over Matthew Dellavedova. He stepped back and swished a 3-pointer, then pounded his chest and pointed to the roof, seemingly controlling the sellout crowd of 19,596 on his fingertips. One more win and the MVP will really have a moment to celebrate. Curry made seven 3-pointers and scored 37 points, and the Warriors withstood another brilliant performance from LeBron James to outlast the Cleveland Cavaliers 104-91 on Sunday night for a 3-2 lead in the NBA Finals. ''It was a fun moment, but it will only mean something - and I'll probably have a better for that question after we win that championship - but signature moments only come for players who are holding the trophy,'' said Curry, who also had seven rebounds and four assists before being treated for dehydration. Curry was spotted rubbing his head and leaning over in a hallway after the game. The Warriors said Curry was receiving fluids in the locker room, watching highlights and should be fine.

Warriors even NBA Finals, beat Cavaliers 103-82 in Game 4

stephen curryStephen Curry shook off Iman Shumpert with a dribble, stepped back behind the line and splashed a 3-pointer that seemed to submerge a mute button on rocking and rolling Quicken Loans Arena. Curry clenched both fists, slapped his chest and yelled, ''C'mon!'' At last, this was the MVP and these were the Golden State Warriors - so deep, so deadly. Curry and Andre Iguodala scored 22 points apiece and the Warriors, showing why they were the league's best team all season, squared the NBA Finals at 2-2 on Thursday night with a 103-82 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Game 5 is Sunday night at Oakland's rambunctious Oracle Arena, where the teams split two overtime games last week. This wasn't desperation for the Warriors, but it was close as none of the 32 teams which have fallen behind 3-1 in the finals has won a title. ''Tonight we came in with the mentality that we had to win this game,'' said Curry. Read more here.

LeBron, Cavs survive Warriors comeback, win Game 3 96-91

lebron jamesLeBron James is doing more than ever. With the Cavaliers missing two All-Stars, he has no choice. ''I'm so outside the box right now,'' he said. And two wins from a championship - one like no other. Pushed by a crowd howling to see Cleveland's 51-year title drought end, James scored 40 points, his new sidekick Matthew Dellavedova added 20 and the Cavaliers survived Golden State's furious fourth-quarter comeback led by Stephen Curry for a 96-91 win over the Warriors on Tuesday night to take a 2-1 lead in the NBA Finals. James added 12 rebounds and eight assists in 46 minutes, his third stellar performance in his fifth straight finals. The Cavs, who won Game 2 at Golden State for their first ever finals win, got their first at Quicken Loans Arena, which shook from start to finish. They'll have a chance to take a commanding 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series in Game 4 on Thursday night. Read more here.

James carries Cavs to OT win over Warriors, evens NBA Finals

lebron jamesThe final buzzer sounded, and LeBron James wasn't done. As fans filed out of the quieting arena, James grabbed the ball and spiked it with all his might. He flexed his arms and pounded his chest, letting out a roar that echoed from California to Cleveland. James turned in a triple-double to remember, Matthew Dellavedova made the go-ahead free throws in overtime, and the Cavaliers overcame a fourth-quarter collapse to outlast the Golden State Warriors 95-93 on Sunday night to even the NBA Finals at a game apiece. James finished with 39 points, 16 rebounds and 11 assists in 50 minutes, carrying Cleveland's depleted roster to victory on the NBA's toughest home floor. The Warriors had been 47-3 at ear-piercing Oracle Arena. ''I tried to give it all to my teammates. And they do a great job of giving it back to me. Total team effort,'' said James, who shot 11 of 35 from the floor and seemed to wear down as the game dragged on. ''To be back in the same position we were in three days ago and to come back and even the series is big time.'' Read more here.

Warriors overcome NBA Finals jitters and LeBron James to win Game 1

stephen curryIt was a regulation classic, and an overtime bummer. The Golden State Warriors dominated the Cleveland Cavaliers in the extra frame during Game 1 of the NBA Finals, taking the contest by a 108-100 mark after Cleveland fell apart in the final five minutes. NBA MVP Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 26 points, as the Cavs watched helplessly as point guard Kyrie Irving limped badly to the locker room in overtime with what appears to be the latest in a string of injuries to the All-Star. Irving had been brilliant throughout the game, keeping the Warriors on edge with crafty drives and expert passing, and his block of Curry late in regulation in what appeared to be an easy and wide open layup helped secure Cleveland’s chance at an extra frame. LeBron James, working mostly in Michael Jordan-styled isolation plays in the post, added a personal career Finals-high with 44 points, but it wasn’t enough as Golden State pulled away in what was previously a close and contested affair.
