Warriors look to win NBA Finals tonight at Oracle Arena

"Cavs in 7! Cavs in 7!"

The exclusive rights to air the NBA Finals in the United Kingdom belong to BT Sport as they have done all season.

"Maybe more measured", Myers said, comparing Green from past year to now. The Cavaliers had their shot in Game 3, but a furious Warriors comeback slammed the coffin lid closed.

"When you're able to focus in for possession by possession and still have your wind and be able to vocally tell everyone what spot they need to be in because you've prepared, it's a hard task", Irving said.

But Draymond Green said Golden State is eager to end this one back in the Bay. Apparently these aren't going to get called as fouls in the National Basketball Association finals and we need to figure out a way around this issue.

Over on Fox Sports, it's website ran a piece giving five reasons why Golden State will win Monday. I don't see anything amusing or anything to smile about. "I just try to get in the paint, make plays, and not let them try to take me out of it". It was them being "too respectful" toward the Warriors.

Many thought Game 5 would not even be necessary after the Warriors stormed to a 3-0 lead in the NBA Finals.

No team has erased a 3-0 deficit in any series.

However, Durant has been the best and most consistent Warrior in the NBA Finals, averaging 34.3 points, 8.8 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 2.0 blocks per game.

"First three games we were being too nice, helping guys up off the floor, smiling, I didn't like that", Lue said Sunday.

The Cavaliers jumped back into contention on June 9 when they won Game 4, 137-116, at The Q. They will have the momentum of a high-speed train if they win Game 5 to cut Golden State's advantage to 3-2.

The Golden State Warriors will attempt to finish off the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals at the Oracle Arena on Monday evening. The only way to avoid it, though, is with a robust reaction to the wakeup call they didn't think they needed. Warriors coach Steve Kerr said it all starts with better on-ball defense. If Green hadn't been suspended for Game 5 previous year, the Warriors might be going for a three-peat right now.

We're guessing that ABC executives probably hope that LeBron James & Co. can somehow rally to force a historic Game 7. Maybe he will, I don't know.

Whether it's extending a season with a pair of 40-point performances or hitting the series-deciding 3-pointer in a Game 7 win past year, Irving's already stellar game has risen to another level whenever the Cavs have faced elimination.

"They can do it again".

"I can't foresee them coming to Oracle and hitting 24 3s", Green said.

Seven technical fouls, one flagrant foul, stars LeBron James and Kevin Durant jawing at each other and several other dustups. But they have to do it four straight times to keep the crown that they brought home from California last June.

The pressure is now on more for the Warriors more than it has been all series and if the Cavs shot better from three by even the slimmest of margins (only 27 percent in Game 3), this series could be a lot more interesting than it already is. Kevin Durant has 21 points and Steph Curry has 20 for the Warriors, who are two quarters away from their second championship in three years.
