Curry, Durant committed to keeping Golden State on top

We saw less of her this season, but she was right there during the celebration after the Warriors took home their second title in three years with a Game 5 win over the Cavaliers on Monday night.

As the gold confetti fell and a fresh gray National Basketball Association champion cap sat a tad off-kilter on his head, Kevin Durant embraced mother Wanda.

For the third year in succession the two teams met in the Finals, Golden State beat Cleveland in the 2015 Finals, in 2016 the warriors squandered a 3-1 lead to the Cavs, it looked like the case again after warriors led 3-0 and then lost the 4 game but this time held there nerves to win 4-1 to secured the trophy in game five.

The Golden State Warriors received plenty of congratulatory messages after clinching their second National Basketball Association championship in three seasons, notably from Lionel Messi and Barcelona. He was also the first player to score 30 or more points in the first five games of the NBA Finals since Hall-of-Famer Shaquille O'Neal did so in 2000.

The resident, who said he was initially told to stay in place, said he fled the building once he realized how thick the smoke was. Residents group Grenfell Action Group had complained about "very poor fire safety standards" by the landlords in the past.

Durant - who swapped the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Warriors in the off-season - walked away with the Finals MVP award after scoring 39 points in game five. "You can't stop the guy", Durant said. James turned to the officials, saying he had been fouled.

The run helped the Warriors win the second quarter by 15 points. David West fought for the ball with Irving, then they got tangled up and Tristan Thompson entered the fray and he and West went at each other face-to-face.
