President Obama and his family stayed aboard Air Force One to watch the final nail-biting minutes of the game after landing at Joint Base Andrews on Sunday night, the White House confirmed to ABC News.

The first family was returning from Yosemite Valley after a trip to Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico and Yosemite National Park in California.

Air Force One had touched down at Andrews at 10:19 p.m., with less than two minutes remaining in the deciding game between the Cavaliers and Warriors.

At 10:37 p.m., moments after LeBron James and the Cavaliers finally brought a championship home to Cleveland, the president jogged down the steps of Air Force One followed by his daughters, Malia and Sasha, and First Lady Michelle Obama.
