The third time around, there was no doubt.
The Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 to return the National Basketball Association title to California on Monday after succumbing previous year to a 3-1 Cavs comeback in the Finals.
"We have a group chat - we call it the discipleship group where we share Bible verses every single day and kind of do a Bible study through text message", he explained. "We'll see how long".
Kevin Durant led Golden State's scoreboard scoring 39 points in his first playoff series.
"It's a team sport, and we want to achieve the highest honor in a team sport, which is winning a championship", Durant said.
Stephen Curry added 34 points, 10 assists, 6 rebounds and 3 steals as Golden State closed out its second title in three years after squandering a 3-1 lead a year ago to the Cavs.
"The one thing I didn't realize - I coached Steve as a player", Brown said. "We fought, we competed, and we never gave in, but they beat us".
"It was unbelievable. The energy in this building from the time we stepped foot on the floor was on 12 out of 10". While Durant has a player option on his contract, Curry will be an unrestricted free agent and the Warriors might have to pay him a lot. "And they waited until late to do it".
The Warriors took a 71-60 half-time lead but the Cavaliers trimmed the deficit, Smith sinking a 3-pointer to pull Cleveland within 98-93 entering the fourth quarter.
"They're all right. They would all kill us", Kerr said to reporters Friday in advance of Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
Durant - drafted as second-overall pick by the Seattle SuperSonics in 2007 - was an easy choice for the Finals MVP. "It was phenomenal to be a part of". The 2017 NBA Finals MVP was brilliant in the series, averaging 35.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 5.4 assists. "I have no reason to put my head down". In 2015, during their victory parade, Green had been enjoying the booze a bit too much as he mocked the Cavs for falling short in the Finals to the tune of his own remix of Nor Cal rapper E-40's "Choices" track.
The bench shot 22 percent while the starting unit shot 57 percent. "And that's all you can ask". A 67-win season followed by a record 15-0 start to the playoffs, dropping game four in Cleveland to miss being the first unbeaten playoff champion.
The Warriors may be champions, but LeBron is still the King.
