Cleveland Cavaliers Win NBA Championship

Cleveland Cavaliers Win NBA Championship


With less than a
minute left in the final quarter of the
season’s final game, Cleveland’s Kyrie
Irving let loose a jump shot giving Cleveland a
three-point advantage over the Golden State
Warriors in Game 7 of the NBA finals. 53 seconds later saw
the Cleveland Cavaliers win their first
championship in their 52 years defeating
the Warriors 93-89. It was also the first
championship for any Cleveland sports
team since 1964. Lebron James helped
lead the Cav’s to victory with
his strong defense, and leading the team
with scoring 27 points. He also was
named the MVP. An emotional James,
who is from Akron, Ohio, started his
career with them before going to Miami
and winning two championships. He then told the
city “Cleveland, this is for you,”. It was quite the
battle for both teams, as the series seemed
to go on longer than expected. After defeating
Cleveland in three of the opening four games,
the Warriors were predicted to win
in five games, six, at the most. But two strong
performances from Irving and James,
including Game 6 in which they
each scored 41, led Cleveland
to make history, becoming the first
Finals team in five decades to force a Game
7 after being down 3-1. The Warriors also led a
strong record breaking season with 73 wins,
and only 9 losses. Congrats to both
teams for a season well played.
