The party is on once again for the Golden State Warriors after they captured their third championship in four years with a 108-85 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4 of the NBA Finals

LeBron James was gracious in defeat, as this image from Game 4 shows from when James checked out for the final time:

A close battle for the honor of being crowned NBA Finals MVP went in Kevin Durant's favor for the second consecutive year. The nine-time All-Star went out in style by recording his first-career triple-double in the Finals with 20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

7.5 assists

Right behind Durant on the list of MVP candidates was Stephen Curry, who scored a game-high 37 points in the clincher. The two-time NBA MVP had numbers in the series that would normally be good enough to earn the Bill Russell NBA Finals MVP award:
