The Cavaliers extended the NBA Finals as they get within 3-2 of the Warriors following the 112-97 victory at Golden St in Game 5 and covering the spread as a +5 ½ point underdog. The game total pushed the closing line of 209 points. Facing elimination the Cavs brought their best offensive effort in this series as they posted 61 first half points and scored 32 in the third period. The game slowed down in the final period as Cleveland outscored the Warriors 19-13. For the game it was Cleveland shooting 53% with 10 of 24 three pointers. Both Kyrie Irving and LeBron James scored 41 points as they combined for 33 of 54 from the field. The Cavaliers found fortune before Game 5 as the league suspended Draymond Green for his scuffle with LeBron James in Game 4 and Andrew Bogut was injured and missed the second half. With the Warriors two rim defenders out the Cavaliers took full advantage as LeBron James was aggressive offensively and drove to the basket. As a result the team finished with 48 points in the paint. With Bogut and Green playing in Game 6 it will be interesting to see if Cleveland resorts back to their high volume of three point shots. The Warriors shot poorly in the Game 5 loss by hitting 36.4% and only 33.3% from the three point line. Klay Thompson had a good night with 37 points and 11 of 20 shooting. The Warriors bench produced very little for the team with only 15 points. In last year’s Finals Golden St held a 3-2 series lead and closed it out on the road to Cleveland.
