After 40 years, the Golden State Warriors again experienced how it felt to win an NBA title after trumping the Cleveland Cavaliers in the latter's home court on Tuesday night.

Game 6 was a make or break game for the Cavs but they ended up breaking their chance to win the title with the Warriors claiming a 105-97 victory and ending the NBA Finals series 4-2.

"They were all in it just to win. This is an amazing group of guys," said Cavs coach Steve Kerr, according to CNN.

NBA 2015 MVP Stephen Curry led the team with 25 points added to the same production of shots from Finals MVP Andre Iguodala.

Curry told The Guardian the team was really all about winning. "Stats don't really matter. Little things make a championship possible," he added.

His teammate, Klay Thompson, recognised Curry's effort to take his team all the way to the championships. "We're the best team in the world with the best player in the world," Thompson said.

A similar Huffington Post report noted that the Warriors indeed surpassed all the expectations of the fans with them having the best defense in the league and also second best offense.

The site added that Curry, who is one of the five menbers of the All-NBA First Team, went head to head with all the other members—Memphis Grizzlies' Marc Gasol, New Orleans Pelicans' Anthony Davis, Houston Rockets' James Harden and LeBron James—during the playoffs.

James, according to The Guardian, managed to make 32 points, 18 rebounds and 9 assists, but his effort was clearly not enough to make the Cavs win especially with numerous turnovers that added 25 points to the Warriors.

"We were under-manned. I don't know any other team in the history of the NBA that got to the finals without two all-stars. We had our playmakers in suits. For a good playoff run, you have to be healthy and little bit lucky. We weren't healthy and we weren't lucky," he said.

Meanwhile, Cavs coach David Blatt said the team did what they were supposed to do to beat the Warriors.

"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). Not every story has a happy ending; it doesn't mean it's a bad story. This was not. This was a good story," said the coach.

After the Warriors victory, ESPN has learned that fans danced on the streets in San Francisco Bay Area to celebrate the championship, which they last got in 1975.

"The San Francisco Bay Area is awash in Blue and Gold as we congratulate our hometown heroes on their spectacular victory!" Mayor Ed Lee told ESPN. There will be a parade in Oakland for the Warriors on Friday at 10 a.m.
