Fan paid $133000 for tickets to Game 5 of the NBA Finals

A year after the Cleveland Cavilers shocked the sports world by winning the NBA Finals after trailing by a 3-1 margin, the Warriors won their second NBA championship in three years after defeating the Cavs 129-120 on Monday.

Per Stephen Campbell of OddsShark, Kevin Durant was a huge -250 favorite (bet $250 to win $100) to win the NBA Finals MVP prior to Game 4.

The Golden State Warriors losing the 2016 National Basketball Association title to the Cleveland Cavaliers after taking a 3-1 series lead haunted Steph Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, coach Steve Kerr and the rest of the team from the front office down. A 15-6 run led by six points from Irving got them within five, and after the Warriors pushed it back to 10, the Cavs scored six straight points, with Thompson's dunk cutting their deficit to 90-86. "So I think Game 4, talking trash, being physical, whatever you got to do to try to get that edge to win, you got to do it", AP quoted Lue as saying.

"LeBron and Kyrie [Irving] - I've never seen none like them two before".

The Warriors are up 3-1 in the series and are looking to win their second title in three years at home. While rumors still persist that the Cleveland Cavaliers might move Love if they lose [VIDEO] the NBA Finals this year, he continues to play strong.

That's why, even after three strong games to open this series, which saw Curry come into Game 4 within shouting distance of averaging a triple-double, one game set Curry's stature back, and put back into focus his importance to the Warriors. I'm pretty sure Draymond won't get suspended for Game 5. "They create so many different problems out on the floor, so much firepower, that we always have to play great in order to win", Cavaliers superstar LeBron James said.

It was the second time he and Durant had met in a finals series, following 2012 when James and the Miami Heat beat Durant's Oklahoma City Thunder 4-1.

"We've been on each other a lot throughout these first four games", James said. Kevin Durant is a leader as well in the race for the NBA Finals' Most Valuable Player Award, as he posted huge numbers in the title bid of the Warriors. We know it's not going to be an easy game for us.

The Cavaliers and Warriors, who have tangled for three consecutive Junes, headed back to the West Coast on Saturday after Cleveland's record-setting 137-116 victory. While the Warriors reserves tallied 32, they usually dominate the bench scoring more. "Not only because we didn't play well, but they came out there and took it to us". You have to give them credit for how they played. The Warriors don't want to give any credence to the notion this series is in any way like the one they lost previous year after going up 3-1.
