The Cleveland Cavaliers won the Best Moment Award at the 2016 ESPY’s at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles Wednesday night.

The Cavaliers earned the award by defeating the Golden State Warriors, 93-89, in Game 7 of the NBA Finals at Oracle Arena on Sunday, June 19th, and in doing so, becoming the first team in Cleveland to win a major sports championship in 52 years.

Despite being down, 2-0 and 3-1, in the best-of-seven series against the reigning league champion Warriors, the Cavaliers fought their way to three straight wins, including two at Oracle Arena, where Golden State lost just three times combined through the regular season and first three rounds of the playoffs.

It is the Cavaliers’ first-ever NBA Championship and the first major sports title for the city of Cleveland since the Browns took home the NFL Championship with an upset win over the Baltimore Colts in December of 1964.
