Golden State Warriors beat Cleveland Cavaliers to win National Basketball Association title

These Are The Best Highlights From The 2017 NBA Finals FACTBOX-NBA-Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant

Before the final game of the series, debate raged about whether Durant or James was the best player on the court.

It was the third year in succession the two teams had met in the finals.

After getting his own back this time around, Durant said: "He averaged a triple-double - you just can't stop the guy - but we got him".

It was the first career National Basketball Association title for Durant, who left Oklahoma City last July to join the Warriors amid expectations he and Golden State would fill trophy cases. "I'm just proud to be part of something special and I just want to do it again".

He scored 39 points in a fast-and-furious, Finals-clinching 129-120 victory over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"They're assembled as good as you can assemble", James said, "and I played against some really, really good teams that was assembled perfectly, and they're right up there".

The film will take place in the 1990s and will be inspired by "The Dark Phoenix Saga ", the most popular X-Men story of all time. Kinberg is taking over the franchise that Bryan Singer left as Singer will focus on directing other films.

James was the best player on the court in the 2017 Finals, but the four-time league MVP is now just 3-5 over his career in the championship series.

"We prevailed, we are champions and it was awesome to do it on our own floor". When it was over, James went straight to congratulate Durant, who got revenge for losing the title with Oklahoma City to James' Miami Heat five years ago. LeBron James averaged 22 points, 7 rebounds and 6.8 assists in the series. "Man, he's freaking awesome".

Though the Cavaliers led 37-33 at the end of the first quarter, Golden State soon reasserted their dominance by winning the second 38-23 to lead 71-60 at half-time. Cleveland's Big Three was not in full force with Kevin Love held to six points. He was also the first player to score 30 or more points in the first five games of the NBA Finals since Hall-of-Famer Shaquille O'Neal did so in 2000.

Unfortunately there might not be anything that James or Griffin can do but where there's a will there's a way and if there's anyone that can set the wheels in motion to compete with Durant's Warriors, the Cavs have that guy.

The game-changing spurt ended with a scuffle when Golden State's David West shoved Irving as he tried to grab the ball away. That's something that they are always going to speak about, about you. He hit a 17-foot fadeaway over James early in the fourth quarter, then assisted on a 3-pointer by Andre Iguodala the next time down as the Warriors pulled away.

LeBron James scored 41 points to lead the Cavaliers.
