Cavs, Warriors will get physical as finals tension boils

12 Juin 2017

Expect the battle to be joined as the Warriors, on the brink of an National Basketball Association title but coming off their first loss in two months, try to clinch before home supporters. Let's make sure you're playing and I get to watch.

And while the comments didn't come across as excessively brash given that they were from Green, Irving said the Cavs were offended and inspired by them. You get punched in the face you want to respond. We got to take this game and do it with efficiency, competitive defense and alertness and awareness for 48 minutes. "We know what we have to do".

Remember: LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Co. overcame a 3-1 deficit against the Dubs to win last season's NBA Finals. They added an MVP to a 73-win team after being up 3-1 and then KD was up 3-1.

Save for the occasional good luck messages, Ayesha shied away from delving deep into the event and much of her social media activity involves what she herself is up to as Stephen and his team vie for the championship. Every year's different, every playoff series, every game, but we just are a team that never count ourselves out.

Game 6, if necessary, would be played Thursday in Cleveland, with the series potentially returning to Oakland for a second consecutive Game 7 on Sunday. "If we don't protect the ball, we don't limit their three-point shooting, then we can get blown out".

LeBron James said his teammate is built for the drama of an NBA Finals elimination game, a trait the Golden State Warriors have learned all too well these past two years.

The Cavs have given themselves a chance (small as it may be) in this series and put some pressure on the Warriors. "We didn't have any of that in Game 4". "Are we going to get after it and compete?"

The Cavs have also run some actions off the ball to take advantage of the Warriors' switching scheme. There never has. It's been about them proving that a year ago was a fluke, KD validating the move here, which it's been validated.

It was the first time in NBA Finals history that one team opened with consecutive wins by 19 or more points.

He had this inspiring message to young people out there: "The things that make you odd are the things that make you powerful". Midler took the stage in a sequin gown, and made it clear she wouldn't leave the podium until she was good and ready.

Cleveland Cavaliers veteran Richard Jefferson has an interesting outlook on game five of the NBA Finals. "We know what we have to do in order to win this game".

That present will include Draymond Green, certainly the most vocal addition to Game 5 from a year ago.

"It's natural for you to look up and see the finish line right there, and you tend to focus on that instead of the task at hand", Green said. Because if you're leaking doing the things you know how to do, don't assume because you go to something else the dike isn't going to be leaking more.

"How all of a sudden does a guy get seven 3s who has been hitting 3s occasionally?" But not since 1951 has a team down 3-0 forced a seventh game in the finals. "We can't worry about the games that happened before, or we can't worry about what will happen in the future, we just got to stay in the moment and help each other out each and every play". It started when Durant took exception to a blow to the head from Kevin Love that led to a flagrant foul and a face-to-face confrontation with James. "We have been in this situation before".

"They can match the effort they gave", Draymond Green said. Fans may question the wisdom of some of Draymond's emotional outbursts, but they can not question his dedication to his team nor his dedication to winning at all costs-even when he goes out of his way to draw the ire of his opponents.
