Warriors' Green will be on the court for this Finals Game 5

Kragthorpe: Can the Jazz ever catch up to the Warriors in the West?

I should've, gone with my instinct. He is not that old (32!) and has a pair of 14-point games this postseason. The champions had 49 points in the first quarter.

In the 2017 National Basketball Association playoffs, Thompson has averaged 9.1 rebounds per game (4.0 offensive rebounds) in 13 wins compared to 6.0 rebounds per game (3.3 offensive rebounds) in 4 losses. "You got to give them credit, they played extremely well tonight".

It is highly unlikely that the Cavaliers shoot lights out from three and put up record numbers in Game 5. Can they do it again? "That's the only way we could win!"

Irving has never lacked confidence in his ability to score. The rim and the ball, both, are his best friends. There wasn't any margin for error and they knew they had to start strong. "As you heard from many players in this league over the years, how tough closeout games are on the road". For the three seasons after his arrival, Despite the occasional brilliance, Irving's eyes and body language conveyed what everyone feared, he needed help. Bad pizza. Does that make the story better or worse?

LeBron's arrival signalled a new era in Cleveland and the National Basketball Association as a whole.

"I had to finally be like, me going back is more of a bigger picture and it's more "All these kids, all these people that need inspiration and need a way to get out and I believe I'm that way out.' "So I had to be like, as much as my mom means everything to me, my wife, my kids.my momma was like, 'You go back, I'm not going back with you.' She's like, 'I'm staying in Miami" or 'Send me somewhere else.' I said like, 'Let's not worry about the small, let's worry about us trying to build something that's bigger than our name".

This Thunder team overachieved for what they were originally projected to do at the beginning of the season, but they were never considered a legit contender as they were just a season prior.

LeBron immediately set to work. Kevin Love deserves some blame.

A little less than a year ago, former Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant announced he would leave the team and sign with Golden State, which was fresh off an NBA Finals loss to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. He was a certified beast. All that's left is one more game to complete the tale and exorcise those ghosts. LeBron was the man in Miami, but the team wasn't built with his skills in their DNA. The Cavs can't break records for three more. They've been through everything, including this exact scenario they find themselves in now, and come out the other end better off. No more did he worry about bringing the ball up, (then) Dellavadova did. "You remember what can be, what can happen". It wasn't enough for him to win, he had to validate himself as a superstar. That he could not do it on his own. And, whether he was fully healthy by the end of those playoffs or not, the cold, hard truth for Curry and the Warriors is that, until they close this series out, last year's failure - and every subsequent one this season - will hang over them.

But then in Game 7, Green put on a tour de force: 32 points, 15 rebounds, nine assists, 11-for-15 shooting (6-for-8 from 3-point distance) in 47 minutes ... and yet the Warriors still lost, 93-89, and Cleveland celebrated the championship on the Warriors' home floor.

Secondly, NBA History is filled with stories like Kyrie's.

Consider also two other players who have not been consistent. "Over the course of the year, he's gotten better and better with that".

Thirdly, no one does it alone.

A physical third quarter featured five of the game's seven technical fouls, two from heated talk between Durant and James after Love fouled Durant, another on Green that appeared to see him ejected before it was revealed that an earlier technical on him had instead been issued to Warriors coach Steve Kerr.
