Warriors beat Cavs to win NBA title

This story will be updated as new information becomes available.

The Warriors fell to the Cavs on June 9, 2017 during Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

The face value of the exact tickets is unknown, though some court side seats for the Finals have a face value of around $3,000 a piece.

He finished with averages of 33.6 points, 12.0 rebounds and 10.0 assists in the five-game series.

The Warriors want to celebrate in front of their home crowd.

The third quarter was easily the most chaotic of the Finals.

The Warriors responded with a 28-4 run for a lead they never gave up after that.

And they had no answer for Kevin Durant, who made three 3-pointers and scored 13 points in the second quarter.

Why would you keep giving LeBron James and company any more motivation? "And that was just - it's a make-or-miss league at that point".

The Cavaliers aren't going down in Game 5 of the NBA Finals without a fight. James' 41 points were not enough. Golden State still had 116 points and didn't shoot that well. He has been the barometer for Cleveland the past two years around the constant greatness from James. There's the foul trouble the Warriors were in (especially Draymond Green) and the turnovers Golden State committed.

The Cavaliers set a Finals record with 49 points in the first quarter and led by 16 when it was over. Like Richard Jefferson referred to during Sunday's shoot-around, the Dubs had to add the second-best player in the world in order to have a shot at beating the LeBron James led Cavs in a series when they are at 100 percent.

Tempers flared when Irving tied up David West on a loose ball. James once dragged a team that started Daniel "Boobie" Gibson and Sasha Pavlovic to an NBA Finals. Now Kevin Durant, Steph Curry and the Warriors have found the range. As a Reddit user highlighted, there's also a portion of Durant's documentary that shows him watching the 2014 Finals between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. Last year, the Cavs did so at the Oracle Arena in Game 7.

- Kyrie Irving scored 26 points and played almost 42 minutes despite banging his knee on the floor and suffering lower back tightness that required treatment on the sideline. Here's a preview and prediction for Game 5.

The Warriors won in 2015 before the Cavs made their historic comeback previous year. No team in National Basketball Association history has bounced back from a 3-0 finals deficit.

This may be a statistical quirk from a four-game sample, but Korver's individual defensive tracking numbers back up the idea that Golden State hasn't been able to take advantage of his defense.

James led the way, connecting on five of his first six shots.

- It was another tough game for Kevin Love, who was in early foul trouble and scoreless on 0-for-3 shooting by halftime.

But it seems like an even more improbable task than it did past year. No one outside of the team and their loyal fan base is giving them a chance. Thompson's 25.6 minutes per game are the most for any traditional post player in the series, and the Cavaliers have performed worse in Thompson's minutes than any other player. That was Durant's first Finals.

The Golden State Warriors, up 3-1, will be looking to close out the Cleveland Cavaliers Monday night.

"We got to find our edge and respond", Warriors guard Stephen Curry said. Little breaks here or there are different, different circumstances, we're right there. "We did it, I told you when I was 8 years old, we did it", Durant said. "Nervous is good. Appropriate fear is the Gregg Popovich line". "We have been physical, we haven't turned the ball over, and we have shared the ball".

"Appropriate fear", a stone-faced Lue said.
