The Golden State Warriors won the NBA title over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night, taking the finals series 4-2 after a victory in Game 6 at Quicken Loans Arena by the score of 105-97 for the first franchise title in 40 years with Andre Iguodala named the finals MVP.
Iguodala did not start right away for the Warriors, but he won the MVP after his strong play helped propel the Warriors to the title. Steve Kerr, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were the main components for the Warriors this season and they led the way over LeBron James and the Cavs in Game 6. The Warriors were one of the best shooting teams in the NBA this year and that was one of the main reasons why the team won the championship.
James did all he could for the Cavaliers, setting a record with his scoring in the first three games, but it wasn't enough to stop the Warriors. Stephen Curry was almost named the MVP of the finals after winning the award in the regular season and he scored 25 points in the game. Draymond Green had a triple double in Game 6 with 11 rebounds and 10 assists and now the Warriors are champions.
The Warriors won their first NBA title since 1975 and head coach Steve Kerr won the championship in his first season as head coach. The Warriors won the most games in the regular season of any team in the NBA and they took the series 4-2 after the win over the Cavs. Timofey Mozgov had 17 points in the game and Cleveland was strong inside, but the Warriors were simply too good.
The Cavaliers played the series without Kevin Love and they had Kyrie Irving for only one game of the finals and that put a ton of pressure on James. LeBron had one of the best finals performances of all-time and Iguodala ended up winning the MVP award despite a strong showing from James and Curry.
