Kevin Durant Picked Warriors For New Experience As Much As Title

Durant was almost flawless in Game 5, scoring 39 points on 14-20 shooting, with seven rebound and five assists.

And now he's taking that resemblance to the NBA Finals, which explains a lot.

Four-time NBA MVP LeBron James said keeping Curry from a breakout game is imperative for the Cavs to have any chance at making the first comeback from a 3-0 deficit in NBA playoff history.

The Cavaliers and Warriors, who have tangled for three consecutive Junes, headed back to the West Coast on Saturday after Cleveland's record-setting 137-116 victory. You want to achieve the highest honour in the team sport, which is winning the championship. No team has come back from 3-0 in the playoffs. Cleveland's defense ranked 22nd in the regular season, and getting stops was at no point a realistic goal.

For the rest of the game, Cavs fans heckled Draymond continuously.

Andre Iguodala has scored 11 of Golden State's 22 bench points. (No one is more qualified to speak on the importance of finishing it off than the members of the 2015-16 Golden State Warriors). James had two foul shots with 2.9 seconds left and missed one, otherwise Cleveland would've hung 50 on the Warriors.

"Pretty much all of their big-name guys are in their 20s", the Cavs' James said, "and they don't show any signs of slowing down". Instead of an ejection for Pachulia, however, he and Shumpert were slapped with technicals.

The best shooting team in the league couldn't buy a bucket early in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. The Warriors needed someone who could outplay LeBron, and Durant gave them that.

The Warriors took their first meaningful lead at 45-43 with about seven minutes remaining in the first half.

Across the bay, rowdy crowds gathered in Oakland intersections, including one were where fans cheering the championship made a circle to watch several men breakdance. Curry had 12 for Warriors, but they were 2-of-7 from three. "They're going to come out and play with a sense of urgency". On the Cavs' side, Irving and Love aren't good defenders and going down the roster the lack of two-way skills was a severe problem.

Tight whistle in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

The Warriors led the Cavs 71-60 at halftime.

"Listen, at the end of the day, we want to just try to put ourself in position to play another game, and we did that tonight and hopefully we can do it Monday night where we can come back here", James said. He also shot 56 percent from the field, 47 percent from distance, and 93 percent from the free-throw line.

"The team that settled in the quickest was going to be successful the quickest as well", Irving said. Some courtside tickets have value of $3,000 or more.

Someone asked LeBron this question: How did your approach to the game and your style of play evolve between the first Final you played in (in 2007) and this one? "It's tough to get back and get matched, especially with their speed".

James toiled hard with 41 points and 13 rebounds but was denied his fourth National Basketball Association championship ring, while teammate Kyrie Irving scored 26 points.

Let's backtrack a moment from what led up to game 4.

But it seems like an even more improbable task than it did a year ago. But Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant have each picked up two fouls. The Cavaliers won the next three games and the championship.
