Durant joins Jordan and Shaq for a slice of NBA Finals history

Steph Curry celebrated winning the National Basketball Association championship for the second time in three years in some style. That stung ever since, and even Durant understood, because he gave up the same lead to the Warriors a round earlier with Oklahoma City. In fact, it would have been far worse than previous year as the Cavaliers would have been the first team to come back from tan 0-3 in the NBA Finals.

Curry had 34 points and 10 assists in contributing to the Golden State Warriors victory to wrap up the NBA Final series in Game 5, with a 129-120 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

With the help of Opta, we take a look at some of the numbers behind the Warriors' second title in three years.

"There's no doubt in my mind that [Kerr] will return as the coach of this team", Warriors GM Bob Myers confirmed to ESPN, following their title-winning defeat of the Cleveland Cavaliers. It is the third time he has averaged more than four three-pointers in a single postseason - no other player has done so more than once.
