Kevin Durant was named NBA Finals MVP for the second straight season Friday after leading the Warriors to their third championship in four years.

Durant recorded a triple-double in Game 4, helping the Warriors complete the sweep over the Cavaliers. Durant now has two championships in two seasons with the Warriors.

"This about the journey, going to work every day with these guys," Durant said after the game on ABC. "It's fun when you play against one of the best in the game (LeBron James)."

Durant scored 20 points with 12 rebounds and 10 assists in Game 4 - his first career playoff triple-double.

According to ESPN's Rachel Nichols, he beat Stephen Curry 7-4 in the MVP vote.

Durant became just the sixth player to win back-to-back Finals MVPs joining an illustrious list that includes LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon.
