OAKLAND, Calif. —Cleveland’s championship drought is over.

LeBron James had a triple-double, Kyrie Irving’s 3-pointer with 53 seconds left put Cleveland ahead to stay and the Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriors 93-89 in Game 7 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night.

It’s the first major championship for the city of Cleveland since the Browns in 1964.

James had 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists, and Irving finished with 26 points for Cleveland — which erased a 3-1 series deficit to win the title.

Draymond Green had 32 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists for the Warriors, whose bid for back-to-back titles was thwarted. Golden State won an NBA-record 73 games in the regular season, then fell short in the playoffs. They went scoreless in the last three minutes of the final game.
