Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant was named the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player for the second consecutive year on Friday.
Durant led the way for the Warriors in a 4-0 series win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, a performance that was highlighted by his playoff-career-high 43 points in Game Three.
Durant slammed 20 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists – his first finals triple-double.
"To win in a sweep, it feels pretty good," Durant said. "Just knowing the work you put in paid off means something.
"It feels great to go out there and win a championship with these guys the way we did it. To finish it off with a sweep feels so good."
The Warriors inflicted the first 4-0 NBA Finals blanking since the Cavaliers were swept by San Antonio in 2007.
