Cleveland Cavaliers Win NBA title



Cleveland Cavaliers became the first team to overturn a 3-1 deficit in the best-of-seven NBA finals as they beat Golden State Warriors.

A LeBron James-inspired Cavaliers won the deciding game 93-89 to complete their comeback against the defending champions, who had won a record 73 games out of 82 in the regular season.

James was named Finals MVP after scoring 27 points, 11 rebounds and dishing out 11 assists.

“I gave it everything I had,”

he said.

Kyrie Irving scored 26 points for the Cavaliers, including a three-pointer with 52seconds remaining when the scores were locked at 89-89.

Led by Steph Curry, the Warriors had set a new record by winning 73 games, beating the mark set by Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls side in 1995-96.

Cleveland’s success also ended the city’s 52-year wait for a major sporting title.

Their last significant success was an NFL crown for Cleveland Browns in 1964.

The gap between victories represented the longest barren spell for any US city.
