With their 93-86 win in Game against the Golden State Warriors, the Cleveland Cavaliers are NBA Champions and the championship drought it over.

With 53 seconds left, Kyrie Irving hit a 3-point from the wing to give the Cavs a 92-89 lead. Then, with 10.6 seconds left, Irving found a cutting LeBron James down the middle of the lane. LeBron was fouled at the rim by Draymond Green and, for a moment, stayed on the ground in a heap. He stayed in the game, made one of his two free throws and gave the Cavs a four-point lead they wouldn't relinquish.

After Cavs used their last remaining foul on the other end and then the Warriors couldn't get off a shot, the Cavs won the title. In the aftermath, James cried as he dropped to his knees, coach Tyronn Lue sobbed into a towel on the bench and every Cavs player celebration.

James finished with 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists. His triple-double is his 16th career triple double in the playoffs and he joins James Worthy and Jerry West as the only players to post a triple-double in Game 7 of the NBA Finals. And most importantly, he brought a title to Cleveland.
