The Cleveland Cavaliers completed the biggest comeback in NBA Finals history and spoiled the Golden State Warriors' record-breaking season by winning Game 7 of the NBA Finals, 93-89, Sunday at Oracle Arena.
LeBron James had a triple-double of 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists as the Cavaliers rallied from a 3-1 series deficit to beat the Warriors three times in a row for Cleveland's first championship in one of the four major sports since 1964.
Stephen Curry scored 17 points for the Warriors, who broke the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' record for most wins in a single season. Golden State won 88 games including their 73-9 regular-season record, but fell one win shy of matching the Bulls with a ring.
Now that the season is over, here are some important dates for the New York Knicks as the 2016-17 season nears:
- June 23: NBA Draft
- July 1: NBA free agency moratorium begins (Free agents can officially sign deals beginning on July 8.)
- July 2-18: NBA Sumer League in Orlando, Utah and Las Vegas
- Aug. 6-21: Olympic basketball schedule
- Sept. 9: Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame induction
The full 2016-17 regular-season schedule will be released later this summer.
