Cavaliers season ends with Game 5 loss to Warriors

The Warriors couldn't make history in Game 4, and now they're going to try and prevent history from repeating itself.

James became the first player in National Basketball Association history to average a triple-double in the finals.

The Warriors took their only loss of the playoffs Friday night.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors find themselves in the same situation as previous year as they prepare to tip off Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night. "They're going to try and do it, and we're going to try and hold them off one more night and get it back to Cleveland".

"We have to be 20 times better in this building", said James, who has won at least one road game in 29 straight postseason series.

But Curry has assured Golden State fans that they are not panicking, and will be hoping home court advantage can see them over the line tonight.

Another victory tonight for the Cavs would see LeBron James and Co. forcing a sixth game in Cleveland, as they continue their push to create National Basketball Association history. I have to be implementing in those opportunities, and the way to do that is just being an open screener, being just a willing sacrificer, and the opportunities will come. "Live in the moment".

LeBron James has 33 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists for the Cavaliers, who have fought valiantly but have not been able to find an answer for Durant.

Tristan Thompson again came up with a fine performance with 15 points, but Kevin Love managed only six points on 2 of 8 shooting.

But Green was almost ejected from Game 4 Friday after being charged with two technical fouls. In 2015, Stephen Curry & Co. celebrated the championship in Game 6 in Cleveland. No team has come back from 3-0 in the playoffs. "I can feel it. there are a few things you can take away from the series, but the only way to go is to grow from here".

This marks the second championship for the Warriors in three years after the Cavs took the 2016 title.

But he said: "It's a team sport. A lot of things happen in the league that you can't really predict but that would be good for everybody involved". Ladies and Gents, here's your Most Valuable Player of the NBA Finals, Mr. Kevin Durant.

The 39 in the close-out game for him 30 or more in each of the five games claiming the first title in his 10-year career.

Tempers flared when Kyrie Irving tied up David West on a loose ball. In the scrum, Pachulia appeared to kick Iman Shumpert - who was standing over him - once and punch him twice.

So, even though the series was 3 - 0 going into Game Four, and the game was on a Friday night when other activities beckoned, and the Spurs weren't playing, Game Four was very much worth watching.

The Warriors led the Cavs 71-60 at halftime.

Irving looks forward to joining James for a possible fourth consecutive trip to the NBA Finals. It would have been worse except J.R. Smith bagged a couple of 3-pointers seemingly from the upper level of the Bay Bridge for the Cavs. James had two foul shots with 2.9 seconds left and missed one, otherwise Cleveland would've hung 50 on the Warriors.
