Warriors fans celebrate National Basketball Association title with rowdy street party

"From when I played him in the 2012 Finals to now. experience is the best teacher in life, and he's just experiencing and experiencing and experiencing".

The Golden State Warriors head coach led his team to its second championship in three seasons Monday night with a Game 5 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2017 NBA Finals.

"As a student of the game, it would be a disservice to myself if I didn't try to learn as much as possible while I'm playing with this guy", he said.

He also produced what will likely go down as the signature moment of the Finals when he hit the three-pointer over James with 45 seconds left in Game Three that gave the Warriors the lead for good and all but sealed the Cavaliers' fate. "I just tried to challenge him. you can't stop the guy, but we battled".

Kevin Durant scored 39 points, Stephen Curry added 34 and the Golden State Warriors won their second National Basketball Association championship in three seasons with a 129-120 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the Finals on Monday night.

But James, in his seventh consecutive playoff series and eighth overall, fell to 3-5 in the championship round.

"He's the only person that I was looking at since 2012". Their one title came previous year when the Cavs became the first National Basketball Association team to rally from a 3-1 Finals deficit to deliver the city its first major championship since 1964. In Golden State, Durant has the opportunity to be a part of a dynasty that will be remembered for generations to come.

"We did it", Durant said.

"But once you get that first, no matter what anybody says from now on in your career, they can't take away from you being a champion". "I can't wait to celebrate with my teammates in the locker room".

Green had sat out this very game a year ago, suspended because of flagrant foul point accumulation after he swiped at James' groin in Game 4.

Golden State used a 28-4 second-quarter run to take charge - just after it appeared Durant should have been called for a third foul on a basket by James - and got to celebrate right at home in Oakland surrounded by a deafening home crowd waving yellow rally towels and holding up phones to shoot video and photos as the final minute of the clock ticked away.

That's when tensions and emotions bubbled over after a heated rebound battle, leading to a face-to-face confrontation between Golden State's David West and Cleveland's Tristan Thompson.
