In Game 5 of the 2016 NBA Finals, Irving scored 41 points, handed out six assists, corralled three rebounds, blocked a shot and stole a pair of passes, which helped Cleveland to a 112-97 win and extended the series.

"There are silver linings to everything", Green told ESPN, before revealing the he called Myers and Durant in quick succession after the Warriors lost the finals.

J.R. Smith hit another 3-pointer and LeBron James scored on a hard putback to help Cleveland cut a deficit that was 17 in the second quarter to eight, 86-77, with five minutes to play in the third quarter. "It's like, 'Whoa.' You remember what can be, what can happen". Golden State leads 3-1 in the series as it shifts back to Oakland, Calif., for Game 5 on Monday night.
"We had the same mindset going into Game 3, just being aggressive, trying to take the ball out of his hands", Lue said.
"Just one of those games", Curry said. "Whatever he's doing, he should keep doing it". And he's really been able to do that. I never look at something and say 'Man, I shouldn't have said that'.
"Me personally, I liked it", Lue said of the testy nature of Friday's game.
Now, with the Warriors up 3-1-the lead they blew in last year's Finals-the jokes are back in full force.
Mike Ashley sale bombshell could smoke out more potential Newcastle buyers
Newcastle owner Mike Ashley could be ready to listen to genuine offers for the club amid interest from China. He is not set to feature in the Magpies plans as they prepare for their return to the top flight.
Durant led all scorers with 39 points, Steph Curry added 34 points, and 2015 finals MVP Andre Iguodala had 20 points off the bench. "It's not only just because we didn't play well; they came out there and took it to us".
But that was in Cleveland.
James, in his seventh consecutive Finals, has won at least one road game in 29 consecutive playoff series, but for the streak to continue, the Cavs must win Monday.
Coach Steve Kerr nodded quickly when queried on the calculated nature of the Curry bottle-up.
The entire basketball-watching public thought Draymond Green was ejected in Game 4 for receiving a second technical foul.
Green has stayed just on the right side of the line this postseason, not in danger of an automatic suspension for technicals or flagrant accumulation. We weren't up 3-0 a year ago. And also perspective and experience. If you come into the game chanting my name, you be at home thinking about me. He has been the barometer for Cleveland the past two years around the constant greatness from James.
"But coming out in Game 5, we feel like if we come to play and we make sure that we focus on our game plan and we bring the physicality and we bring it to them, then we'll put ourselves in a great position". Are we going to get after it and compete?
