WATCH LIVE: Golden State Warriors Celebrate NBA Title With Parade Through Oakland
The remarkable Golden State Warriors have done it again.
For the third time in four years, the remarkable squad has brought the NBA championship back to the Bay Area. Following a narrow, overtime Game 1 NBA Finals victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Warriors reeled off three more in a row to sweep the Cavs and take the title.
Kevin Durant, for the second consecutive year, was named Finals MVP — averaging 28.8 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 7.5 assists for the four game set. Durant was brilliant throughout, but his 43 points in Game 3 — including a late game 3-pointer from about 30 feet out with the shot clock winding down — helped dash any legitimate hopes Cleveland had of winning.
Durant, on Tuesday, will join his teammates — including Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green — for the official victory celebration.
The parade began at 1:00 p.m ET. Watch above via ABC 7 Bay Area.
