Durant was awarded the Finals MVP award, his second consecutive one. He averaged 28.75 points, 10.75 rebounds and 7.5 assists a game throughout the finals. In his two seasons with Golden State, he has won two championships and two finals MVP awards.
Cavs superstar LeBron James finished the series averaging 34 points, 10 assists and 8.5 rebounds per game. With his impending free agency, this could have been his final game in a Cleveland Cavaliers jersey.
The Warriors and Cavaliers met in the finals for the fourth consecutive year. Back in 2015, Golden State won in six games. In 2016, LeBron James and then-teammate Kyrie Irving led the Cavs back from a 3-1 series deficit. Last year, with the addition of Durant, the Warriors were able to win the championship in five games.
