"I gave everything I had. I put my heart and my blood and my sweat and my tears into this game. Against all odds... Cleveland... This is for you!" — LeBron James
The curse is over. The drought has been drenched. The city of Cleveland has its first major sports championship since January of 1964 as the Cavaliers topped the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of the NBA Finals, 93-89.
LeBron James led the Cavs with 27 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and three blocked shots, leading Cleveland to become the first team in the history of the NBA to overcome a 3-1 deficit in the Finals. Kyrie Irving's huge second half helped pave the way to the Cavs overcoming a halftime deficit, finishing with 26 points and six rebounds. The Cleveland Cavaliers defense kept the Warriors from scoring over the final 4:39 of the contest with unanimous MVP Steph Curry going 0-for-4 over that stretch.
