The Cavs Beat The Warriors For The Championship 93-89


For the first time in 52 years, Northeast Ohio is celebrating the Cleveland Cavaliers bring home an NBA Title.

Nearly 30,000 people gathered downtown to cheer on the Cavs at watch parties both in and outside of the Q.

This is the first championship for Cleveland, since 1964 when the Cleveland Browns won the NFL championship.

The Cavs beat the Warriors in game 7 Sunday night 93-89.

No team had ever rallied from a 3-1 deficit to win the NBA Finals.

In fact, only three teams out of 33 have forced an NBA Finals Game 7 after trailing 3-1.

The other two teams are the 1951 New York Knicks (against the Rochester Royals) and the 1966 Los Angeles Lakers (against the Boston Celtics).

But the Cavaliers fought back, tying the series 3-3 after a 115-101 win at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland on Thursday night.

LeBron James, the Akron, Ohio, native who returned to the Cavaliers with the goal of leading Cleveland to a championship, scored 41 points in each of the last two games.

He is the first player with consecutive 40-point performances in the NBA Finals since Shaquille O’Neal did it in 2000.
