|Miami Heat Clinch NBA Championship|
The Miami Heat clinched their second franchise NBA championship (and first since 2006) with yesterday's 121-106 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, Miami won the series 4-1 and become the first team in history to win the title after trailing in three consecutive series. In the end they were led by LeBron James who continued his dominant post-season play and was fittingly named the Finals MVP winner, James finished the game with 26 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists.
In addition to James numbers, the Heat received help from some unlikely sources, Mike Miller was unconscious from long-range, connecting on 7/8 from three-point range while superstar Dwyane Wade also contributed 20 points.
LeBron becomes just the fifth player in NBA history to record a triple-double in a Finals-clinching game. After the game he said it was a dream come true to finally be a champion.
"You know, my dream has become a reality now, and it's the best feeling I ever had," James said. "I'm happy now that eight years later, nine years later since I've been drafted, that I can finally say that I'm a champion, and I did it the right way, I didn't shortcut anything. You know, I put a lot of hard work and dedication in it, and hard work pays off. It's a great moment for myself."
