LeBron James leads Cavaliers to stunning victory over Warriors in N.B.A. Finals
OAKLAND, Calif. — Led by LeBron James, the Cleveland Cavaliers swamped their main rival, the Golden State Warriors, in game 5 of the N.B.A. finals, scoring an astonishing 169-120 victory that few sports commentators were predicting.
On Monday night, an ebullient crowd dabbed and chanted "Long Live the King" at Oracle Arena, where gold confetti cascaded down from the ceiling at the final buzzer.
International popstar and Lebron superfan Rihanna - who had been sitting courtside throughout the match - was photographed openly weeping tears of sheer joy while Kyrie Irving sank to his knees and sobbed with relief.
After two lopsided losses, the Cavaliers finally found their groove, ultimately dominating the Warriors' star players Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant, who left the court crestfallen.
According to Page 6, Kevin Durant's heart won't be broken for long. The gossip rag reports that Rihanna has asked him out.
President Hillary Rodham Clinton reportedly called Lebron James to congratulate him.
