Cavs, LeBron are NBA Champions

For the first time since 1964, the city of Cleveland gets to rejoice in one of their teams becoming champions.

The Cleveland Cavaliers made history and defeated the Golden State Warriors in the deciding Game 7, 93-89, in what was a classic final game of the series. LeBron James had 27 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists and one, perhaps series-defining block in the final minutes (3 total) and led his team to a championship – one that the city of Cleveland hadn’t seen for 52 years.

Here is the block that will go down as the key point of the series, and into NBA history lore:

The Warriors had a disappointing end to their historic season as they set the record for most regular season victories, but came up short in the Finals series, despite being ahead three games to one. In Game 7, Draymond Green led all scorers with 32 points, 15 rebounds, and 9 assists. The Splash Brothers had another game to forget, with Steph Curry accumulating just 17 points, and Klay Thompson a mere 14 on 2-10 shooting from 3-point range.

The game was tightly contested throughout all four quarters, making the game a surefire instant classic. As expected, social media was on the edge of their seat the entire time. Here are some of the best tweets during the game’s biggest moments, via Social Delta:
