Warriors' Game 5 win wraps up highly-watched NBA Finals

But while taking questions from reporters on Wednesday, Warriors star Stephen Curry was asked to address Golden State's potential visit. They completed the greatest playoff run to a championship in the 71 years of the NBA Finals. The Warriors won 129-120 t.

Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala (9) dunks against the Cleveland Cavaliers during the first half in game five of the 2017 NBA Finals at Oracle Arena.

The first-time title victor scored 39 points as point guard Stephen Curry posted 34 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland. And he looks forward to the nice payday.

"It would mean everything". It is a business. "You still getting your ass whooped by your momma". "You the real MVP", Kevin Durant said.

It also created lofty expectations for Durant, with many onlookers saying his move would be a failure if the Warriors did not go on to win a title in their first season together. "I think we handle (the White House situation) when it gets there". It's easier said than done, obviously, but that's the goal. It's what our fans want to see, it's what we provide in this league.

Monday night was about more than winning. Along with Curry that day were Iguodala, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.

Durant was once again the best player on the floor for the Warriors on Monday, hitting some timely three-pointers en route to a team-high 39 points.

Their speed, movement, and ability to share the ball and play together, combined with their will and ability to shoot accurately from long range has had this league and its coaches staying up late hours trying to find ways to slow them down. "It's kind of insane to think about the conversations we had this summer and going into the year about how we can both mesh and do what we do and be the players that we are and (to) see it come to life in this series, it was unbelievable".

"Maybe we should've seen it coming over the last 10 years. I don't believe we're a super-team here".

"Kevin's journey, our team embraced him", Myers said. Then they went 16-1 in the playoffs, beating the Cavs for the title in five games despite an historic performance by LeBron James. "Just with everything that's going on right now, I just don't agree with a lot of stuff that's happening".

"I couldn't sleep for two days", Durant said.

"But we were disciplined, we had a message everyday - it was always just about us". "So we'll handle that accordingly and responsibly and do the right thing for us individually and as a group".
