After losing Game 4 the Warriors headed back home to Oracle Arena to end the finals with a 9 point victory. Here are a few things you need to know about Game 5 and the 2017 Champions:
- The NBA Finals MVP was none other than Kevin Durant. KD had 39 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists in the team's win. This was also his first finals win.
- LeBron James led his squad with 41 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists.
- The Warriors battled sluggishness and turnovers early in the game, behind 41-33 in the second with about 10:14 remaining.
- Although the Cavs lost they kept it close in the third quarter (cutting the lead to five at one point) and then cutting it to 3 early in the fourth quarter.
Now, the only question is: will they be able to do it again? (Source: BR)
