Stephen Curry added 34 points, 10 assists, six rebounds and three steals as Golden State closed out its second title in three years after squandering a 3-1 lead a year ago to the Cavs to miss a repeat.
Residents of Oakland, which recently learned it's losing one of its other beloved teams, the Raiders, to Las Vegas, are still reeling from a police scandal and mourning a deadly warehouse fire.
But in case there's any concern among Warriors fans, recent comments by one of the people who would be paying that contract should come as excellent news.
Curry hopped and shouted as he gave high-fives to the crowd after getting off a double-decker bus during the Thursday parade.
"He's so great. He's so great, joining that team, to me, was nearly unfair", Smith said per The Washington Post.
With the lead up to 17 and halftime fast approaching Smith hit back-to-back threes on the Cavs final two possessions to get this back to a deficit from which it still felt like it was one the Cavaliers could come back. That's something I talked about coming into the league, wanting to do it year in and year out.

Thick fescue becomes sticky issue at Erin Hills
Both are renowned for their short games, as is Spieth. "So it would be a great week to put it all together". Now, the wind will probably blow most of the week, but even if it dies slightly, the course seems gettable.
For all that chatter about chemistry on a super-team - some called them "supervillains" - how there might not be enough shots for all the big-time scorers, the Warriors kept winning as the world watched the every move of the East Bay franchise under the microscope.
The Cavaliers, led by stars LeBron James' 41 points and Kyrie Irving's 26, repeatedly battled back and pulled Cleveland within striking distance of Golden State in the second half.
"We've overcome a lot of doubts", said Tulio Zelada, 28, a San Francisco resident who attended the parade. Would the 2004 Pistons take down the Warriors?
The Warriors won in 2015 before the Cavs made their historic comeback past year.
At the rally, Green mocked James' contention that James had never played for a super team.
The Warrirors had their own foul trouble issues early on to deal with as three starters - Thompson, Green and Durant all finished the half with two. Because of this, there have been Internet reports that the team has already voted to decline the traditional invitation for the National Basketball Association champions to go to the White House - something they did after winning the title in 2015, when Barack Obama was president. The Warriors have been dubbed a super team with the addition of Durant.
