The win added to the Golden State Warriors' victories in 2015 and 2017 and was the first finals clean sweep since the Cavs were demolished by San Antonio Spurs in 2007.

It was the second time the Warriors have secured the championship in Cleveland during Kerr's four-year tenure.

"I remember sitting in this room three years ago and it seemed like a dream. This feels like reality," Kerr said. "I hope that doesn't sound arrogant. It's just the talent we have and the experience we've gained."

A James slam dunk had Cleveland ahead 39-38 halfway through the second quarter, but Golden State responded to lead 61-52 at half-time and eased to victory from there.
