The Golden State Warriors made their claim to the NBA title Tuesday night, ending the grueling showdown between the California team and the Cleveland Cavaliers, CNN reports. 

Tuesday night's game was close, 105-97, with the Warriors' Stephen Curry and Andrew Iguodala scoring 25 points each. Iguodala was named MVP of the series. 


"They were all in it just to win," the Warriors' head coach, Steve Kerr, said of his team. "This is an amazing group of guys."

It was the first time since 1975 that the team carried home an NBA title. 

Cavaliers head coach David Blatt praised his team, although acknowledging the disappointment of missing out on the championship. 

"Our guys did more than anyone could expect to put themselves, and to put our organization, in the situation [where they played for a title]," Blatt said, according to CNN. "Not every story has a happy ending; it doesn't mean it's a bad story. This was not. This was a good story."

LeBron James led the Cavaliers with 32 points, 18 rebounds and nine assists.
