CLEVELAND– The Golden State Warriors won the NBA Championship beating the Cleveland Cavaliers, 105-97.

The Cavs came into Game 6 knowing it was a must-in, but they got off to a slow start.

They trailed the Warriors 28-15 at the end of the 1st quarter. At the half, they were down just two points, 45-43. But, by the end of the 3rd, the Warriors’ lead widened to 12 points. With less than two minutes left in the game, the Cavs trailed by 13 points. They had it to just within four, but it wasn’t enough. LeBron James finished with 32 points, 18 rebounds and 9 assists.

Nineteen Cavs turnovers hurt the Cleveland attack, while the Warriors’ bench was a big factor. Both Festus Ezeli and Shaun Livingston popped in 10 points. Warriors’ Andre Iguodala, who scored 25 points, won the NBA Finals MVP.

Cavs Coach David Blatt said, “Our team never quit. Not every story can have a happy ending. It doesn’t mean it’s not a good story.”

Blatt said the team would come back stronger than ever next year. He also said he felt for Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love not being able to take part in the bulk of the Finals.

“It was challenging but also rewarding and beneficial chance I was given to work with the best player in the world. It was an honor to coach him,” Blatt said about coaching James.
