#NBAFinals: Warriors are Champions again after 40 years!!!

It’s done. Small ball is king of the big man’s game. The Golden State Warriors succeeded in dominating the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 6 of the 2015 NBA Finals to pocket their first NB championship after four decades of frustration. Steph Curry played like the MVP again and, well, his teammate Andre Iguodala, who has been crazy good in this series, was named Finals MVP. 

Game Capsules from The Sports Network:

Golden State 105, Cleveland 97
Cleveland, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - A beaming Stephen Curry raised his arms in the air with both index fingers pointed to the sky. Seconds later, the NBA MVP received a congratulatory handshake from LeBron James. After the final buzzer sounded, NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala retrieved the game ball, clenched it tightly against his hip and joyfully began to jump up and down. 

The 40-year drought is over.
