Curry to pass on White House celebration visit

But just like they were in 2015, the Warriors were too hot to handle.

The Golden State Warriors used a 28-4 flurry in the second quarter to take a lead they never relinquished, then relied on the scoring of Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry down the stretch to hold off the Cleveland Cavaliers en route to a 129-120 victory Monday night, clinching their second National Basketball Association championship in the past three seasons.

After shooting 55.6 percent and contributing 35.2 points, 8.4 rebounds and 5.4 assists to the five-game domination, he now has a new title. Green shot 34.5 percent for the series and never got around to having the kind of statement game he had in Game 7 of last year's Finals. Following Monday's win, he embraced his mother, Wanda Durant, on the court.

"Obviously, there's a lot of hoopla and fanfare that follows you wherever you go, but I know where my talent comes from", he said in an interview with Decision.

He was the first man to ever average a triple-double in the NBA Finals. He is now 3-5 in his eight NBA Finals appearances. In 2012, when he was playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder lost to James - who was then with the Miami Heat - in five games.

LeBron James scored 41 points to lead the Cavaliers.

Durant's stellar play all season and throughout the playoffs vindicated Golden State's massive payout to the superstar in a controversial off-season deal.

However, he denied that his mother tried to poison him and said she never made the kids breathe what he termed "germ air". He said he saw her put the end of a garden hose into the auto window. "The bus driver came and pulled out the hoses".

Golden State Warriors' Game 5 win wraps up highly-watched NBA Finals
But several of the Warriors , including Curry , find themselves opposed to some of the philosophies espoused by President Donald Trump .

It all added up to Golden State's second championship in three years. The Warriors won a league-record 14 consecutive games during this year's playoffs and went 16-1 overall in the postseason.

Several Warriors players and coaches have been outspoken in their criticism of President Donald Trump this season.

To anyone thinking about saying or writing that LeBron James's legacy is tarnished after losing the 2017 NBA Finals to the Golden State Warriors, I say this: Don't.

During his absence, Kerr was still involved at practice, but he handed the game day responsibilities to assistant coach Mike Brown.

When it came time to reflect on the series, Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue pointed to the final 2:13 of Game 3 as the difference.

It's hard to believe LeBron James when he says he has never been part of a super team given he now plays beside Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. That's a pretty incredible accomplishment, considering that Michael Jordan made just six trips to the Finals. The team is expected to re-sign Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry this offseason, keeping intact its core group of stars. Kyrie Irving had 26 points while JR Smith had 25.
