arena. >> reporter: i have said it before and i will say it again, this is the reason the warriors signed kevin durant, for nights like this, and he literally carried them to a championship in game five of the nba finals tonight at home. man, the celebrities, the stars were out as we check out some of the highlights from game five, a snoop dogg was here, chris rock was here, part of a sell-out crowd, and kevin durant, the biggest star of all, looking for his first nba title, hits the three and just getting started. steph curry, 34 points and 10 assists, a little runner there, warriors up 11 at the half. third quarter, lebron spectacular in the loss, 41 points, 13 boards, 8 assists. in the end, the warrior offense came down to kevin durant, 39 points, the finals mvp, the warriors captured their second championship in three years, 129-120 was the final score as the confetti came down, and the
warriors take the series four games to one. we bring in abc7's mike shumann. you were having fun. i can't believe you didn't get doused in champagne. >> the oracle dodger is what they like to call me. but it was exciting. last time they did it was the first time. you related to it like the 49ers did years ago. second time around, a lot of guys, west, patch yulea, barnes, even the rookies all got rings, and it was so exciting in the locker room to talk to them afterwards. let's hear from the mvp, though, kevin durant. >> i come to bring it every day. i work hard, i believe in myself, i believe in the game, i respect the game, i love the game. and i knew at some point in my life that it would come around for me. >> worth every, you know, every shot we took in practice. it's an unbelievable feeling. i'm happy for him. you gotta call kevin durant a champ now. >> if they say 16-1 it was easy, but it wasn't. this series could have really changed in game three
especially, but we had big time players make big time plays. >> it hasn't been easy, i'm going to be honest, but in many ways, coaching this team has carried me through, and i look forward to it every day, to come into practice and seeing these guys. it's crazy, i'm living right. >> reporter: and i think it meant more to steve kerr than the first time around. >> oh, yeah. >> when i talked about march, you could see how special it was. he said he teared up when he hugged him. because people don't realize what he went through this season. >> yeah, the complications from the back surgery, still probably experiencing headaches, just hope that over the course of the offseason he really gets healthy 100%, and can really enjoy what the warriors accomplished this season. you can call kevin durant -- a lot of people called him soft. they called him cup cake. >> a villain. >> and tonight you gotta call him nba champion. he's going to light it up. >> this means i don't have to go
back to cleveland, right? >> only one way if you go. that's what management says.

they did so in style. >> it was an exclamation point, took it over. he knew they won. >> they would play when the clock got to two seconds and it was over. that was my favorite play. >> reporter: when you're pitted against a rival team after losing to them last season, you've anticipated this moment for a full year. >> i feel wonderful. i was here last year for game seven, and it's been such a letdown. so i've been waiting a year for this moment. >> it was sweet. revenge is always sweet. and this was payback from last year. people are just ready to celebrate. >> you can feel the vibration in the building. it's amazing. >> reporter: fans are gonna want to get their hands on this, the finals gear, the championship hat, and we also have the t-shirt here to show you, and i'm going to ask, do you think this is business casual? will it fly tomorrow at the office? i'm asking for a friend or maybe the rest of the bay area, who's going to be wanting to sport this look at work tomorrow. >> i think you can wear it.

championship on your own floor, celebrate in front of your fans. it's beautiful. once in a lifetime. you gotta really enjoy it. but i look forward to them doing it again. >> is this a once in a lifetime experience? >> right now it is, so enjoy the moment. >> reporter: the celebration spilled overto the plaza outside, dancing, singing. >> the bay area got a unique energy and i had a chance to be a part of it. >> we need this win. i love for the warriors to stay here, but i know that they're leaving and it's great to have a win here before they go. >> reporter: and they are still celebrating this hour. the parking lot still has cars in it. we're still hearing shouts over our shoulder. i'm predicting that a lot of people in the bay area are going to call in sick tomorrow. the illness will be delirium. live from oakland, wayne freedman, abc7 news. >> that's a good one. thank you, wayne. not everyone can make it, of course, to oracle tonight.

warriors. of course we had a great team, a good start, but he's just brought it all together. >> we came out hungry this time. we wanted to close out the game, you know, yeah, man, i don't know, i can't put it into words right now. it's such a good feeling. >> this is a dynasty that's going to go on for the next, at least five years. at the very least, five years. i called the sweep of the whole playoffs. lebron got one, that's all he got. >> i got a little nervous based on what happened last year, but we did it, we won. >> i supported the warriors when they were terrible, when tickets were super cheap and they spiked them up, but it means so much for the town, so much for oakland. it's huge. >> reporter: from the bars, a celebration spilled into the streets, this was the street on broadway, people honking their horns, waving and cheering, a contrast from last year, when the streets were very quiet
