LeBron James Leads Cavaliers Past Warriors For NBA Title
OAKLAND, CA (KFSM) – LeBron James wrote a letter to Cleveland Cavalier fans two years ago that he was returning to the team that drafted him so he could win a title there.
Sunday night he did that.
James finished with his seventh career triple-double in the NBA Finals as the Cavaliers took down the Warriors, 93-89, in game seven to win the NBA Championship. James was voted the unanimous NBA Finals MVP after posting 27 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds.
Cleveland won the series 4-3 and became the first team in NBA history to overcome a 3-1 series deficit and win a championship.
Golden State, who were the defending NBA champions and set the league’s record for most wins during the regular season, got a game high 32 points from Draymond Green but stars Klay Thompson and regulars season MVP Steph Curry struggled. The duo combined for 31 points while going just 12-of-36 from the field with seven turnovers.
