Irving saves his best for when Cavs face Finals elimination

This was the first time in NBA history the same two teams met in the NBA Finals for a third straight time.

The door to the 2017 NBA Finals has still yet to be closed as the Cleveland Cavaliers stole a series-clinching win at home against the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors are primarily looking to make the Cavs play one-on-one and stay at home on Cleveland's shooters. The Warriors won 129.

Kevin Durant scored 39 points and Stephen Curry 34 to spark celebrations around Oracle Arena in Oakland.

Kevin Durant and Steph Curry have been superb for Golden State in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. With the Oracle crowd going insane tonight, the home team's running game will return and that is the key in beating Cleveland's older and slower defense.

From the Bay all the way to OKC.

Kevin Durant No.35 and Zaza Pachulia No.27 of the Golden State Warriors compete for the ball with Tristan Thompson No.13 and LeBron James No.23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second half in Game 4 of the 2017 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena on Saturday in Cleveland, Ohio.

In addition, Draymond Green, who was suspended for Game 5 previous year, will be playing. "I want to see how it feels to win at home", he said. I expect us to come out with a level of focus that we have had this entire series, minus Game 4. That stung ever since, and even Durant understood, because he gave up the same lead to the Warriors a round earlier with Oklahoma City.

They would build a double-digit lead and somehow LeBron James and Kyrie Irving would get Cleveland back within five or six.

The Warriors took their only loss of the playoffs in Friday night's Game 4. Durant is never going to be able to completely stop James, and LeBron will only be able to limit the impact of KD on the other end.

The equivalent to Apple's iOS native application Siri is Google Assistant , which is also a separate platform from Android . The new 10.5-inch iPad Pro will start at $649 in the USA and be available in silver, space gray, gold and rose gold colors.

That was especially evident in the Game 4 win when Irving hit seven of Cleveland's record-setting 24 3-pointers.

The All-Star point guard, who made several Golden State defenders look silly with his darting moves, excels when things seem darkest. This second title in three years very well could be one of many more.

In addition to the record $133k for a pair of seats to tonight's game, the team's Ticketmaster resale site also had two other major sales including $90,000 for one pair while another went for $82,000.

J.R. Smith opened the scoring in Game 1 by swishing a three-pointer.

Game 1's number is unlikely to be repeated as is Game 4's.

Durant shot 14-for-20 and added seven rebounds and five assists.

"Maybe more measured", Myers said, comparing Green from past year to now. As a result, the Warriors win the 2017 National Basketball Association championship.

He's right. The Warriors suiting up on Monday will be much different from the team at the same point in 2016. It was a record-breaking performance that can not be duplicated on the road, and that's what it will take. A year ago they were down Draymond Green due to his suspension and they didn't have Durant because the seas hadn't yet parted in free agency.
