The Golden State Warriors have defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight to win the 2017 NBA Championship, the team’s second title in three years.

Playing Game 5 at Oracle Arena in Oakland, the Warriors won 129-120 to take the series 4-1 and avenge a heartbreaking loss in a seven-game series last year.

Golden State won the first three games of this year’s series before losing Game 4 in Cleveland on Friday.

Golden State also defeated Cleveland in 2015 in the first of three consecutive NBA Finals series between the teams.
