Game 5: The Warriors are back at Oracle Arena!
Golden State lost their home court advantage in Game 2 and Game 3 but regained it in Game 4, an impressive team effort. The Dubs overcame a career-high 28 points from the Cleveland Cavalier’s Timofey Mozgov while the Golden State Warrior’s baby faced assassin found his groove with 22 points. During the first three games the Cavalier’s Lebron James played like an all-time NBA great, but during the fourth game it became clear that the Cavaliers can’t win unless their MVP is stealing the show.
The season’s NBA Finals are down to a three-game series with two of those games at Oracle arena, the first one falling on Sunday June 14th at 5 pm PST. The mystery surrounding game five will be whether Lebron James can return to stellar form. His near triple-double in Thursday’s game was not enough to secure a victory. It appears that James has to perform at a level never seen before in the NBA Finals for him to bring the Cavaliers a win. This bodes well for the Warriors as they did not have a single player dominate the stat sheet and still came away with an easy victory reminiscent of their march through the regular season to 67 wins.
With balanced scoring between Andre Iguodala (who is, as the announcers would say, simply getting Iggy wit it), Harrison Barnes, Draymond Green, and Steph Curry, the Warriors easily overcame a slow scoring night from Klay Thompson and only two minutes of playing time from Andrew Bogut. If this level of balance can be achieved in Game 5, Golden State will be incredibly difficult to defeat.
