NBA Finals: Warriors on the brink of their most unexpected title

SAN FRANCISCO— A salary-dumped draft bust, a basketball vagabond, a G League alumnus and a new-age philosopher orchestrated the biggest win of the NBA Finals on Monday, while the greatest three-point shooter in history missed all of his three-point shots.
