At Oakland, California:
LeBron James---named series Most Valuable Player (and shown here)---produced a triple double (27 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists) on Sunday as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the defending title-holding Golden State Warriors 93-89 on the road in game seven of the NBA Finals and won their first-ever NBA championship-----the first sports crown for a Cleveland club since 1964----four games to three, becoming the first club to overcome a three-games-to-one championship-series deficit.
The Cavaliers became the first team to take game seven of the title series on the road since the Washington Bullets did the trick in Seattle in 1978.
Kyrie Irving added 26 points to the Cavaliers' coffers.
Draymond Green came close to producing a triple double in pacing the Warriors with 32 points---while grabbing 15 rebounds and dishing out nine assists.
