After 52 years the drought is finally over for the Land as the Cleveland Cavaliers clinch their first NBA championship.
Sunday night everyone got what they had been hoping for from the beginning of the series, a tight game from wire to wire. The Golden State Warriors were favored at home but once again bad decision making led to a disappointing end to a record breaking season for the dubs, losing to the Cavaliers in historic fashion, 93-89.
No team has ever come back from a 3-1 deficit to win the NBA Finals but Cavaliers had all the momentum, and LeBron James on their side, to snap the 0-32 record making it 1-32.
Stephen Curry was not the MVP we’ve seen all season in this series and his sloppy play hurt the Warriors’ chances of becoming back-to-back champions.
The game was tight throughout but it would be Kyrie Irving that hit a big three-point shot to put the Cavaliers up 92-89 with just seconds left that ultimately won the game for Cleveland.
The 2016 NBA Finals champions are the Cavaliers and King James sits back on top of his throne.
