Golden State tops Cleveland in 6 games, takes NBA title with 105-97 win
CLEVELAND - The Golden State Warriors have won their first NBA championship since 1975, beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 105-97 in Game 6.
Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala each had 25 points for the Warriors, who won the final three games after Cleveland had taken a 2-1 lead.
The Warriors overcame LeBron James' best efforts in the series and followed their 67-win regular season with a title after none of their players had any previous NBA Finals experience entering the series.
Steve Kerr is the first rookie coach to win the title since Pat Riley with the Lakers in 1982.
James finished with 32 points, 18 rebounds and nine assists, falling just shy of what would have been a record third triple-double in the series.
