"Cavs in 7! Cavs in 7!"

Cleveland wears this ability to play its best basketball with absolutely no room for error like a badge of honour, but they don't necessarily enjoy it.

Yes, the NBA Finals are right where they were previous year and could still end with the same result.

"Maybe more measured", Myers said, comparing Green from previous year to now.

The Cavaliers and Warriors, who have tangled for three consecutive Junes, headed back to the West Coast on Saturday after Cleveland's record-setting 137-116 victory.

"At times it may seem like it's too much contact, and people can say what they want", said Cavs' defensive specialist Iman Shumpert.

For NBA fans unable to catch the Game 5 television coverage, the best alternative is online streaming via the ESPN app, which can be accessed through the following services: DirecTV Now, Sling TV, Hulu Live TV or PlayStation Vue.

"I've won one on the road". "I don't see anything amusing or anything to smile about. Got to come out with some fire and try to get it done".

An engaged, productive Thompson would go a long way toward potentially making this a real series again, given that the Cavs won last year's title by harassing the Warriors with their physical play.

For starters, Cleveland hit 24 triples on the night, the most in NBA Finals history.

Meanwhile, May stood outside Number 10 on Friday morning declaring "let's get to work" in a bizarrely-triumphant speech. There could have been a leadership contest which would have exposed all the old Tory divisions on Europe.

Now they need the biggest ever in the NBA's postseason. The Warriors didn't gain this year's 3-0 advantage on a halfcourt fling and a prayer.

That was especially evident in the Game 4 win when Irving hit seven of Cleveland's record-setting 24 3-pointers. He is hopeful that the officiating will not dictate how they'll play on Monday night, and that they can bounce back quickly from their rare defeat back in Game 4.

As if Draymond Green didn't have enough enemies in Cleveland, he certainly added a few more after uttering some choice comments in the direction of Cavaliers supporters.

And it was not lost on them that the Warriors wanted specifically to wrap up the Finals in Cleveland. "It's like, 'Whoa.' You remember what can be, what can happen". "So we're in a great spot, and now we have to capitalize", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

But Curry shakes off similarities to a year ago, in part after adding Durant, who came from Oklahoma City last July in hopes of winning his first career title.

"Yeah, thank God I get to play on Monday", Green said.

"When I have the ball in my hands, I just have to be a little bit more aggressive than I was in Game 4", he said. "But we'll go back and tee it up again".

James said after Game 3 that it takes an A-plus-plus game to beat the Warriors, and the Cavaliers delivered one Friday.

Sounds farfetched? Of course it does, but so did James going back home to Cleveland after four straight Finals trips and two championships, with the Heat to rejoin the Cavs after owner Dan Gilbert's scathing open letter following his departure in 2010. But the Cavs also made a much better effort harassing him at every turn, bumping him, grabbing him when they could get away with it, and often trapping him with two men even when he didn't have the ball.

Also, in the closing moments of Game 3 when Kevin Durant buried a go-ahead 3-pointer, Stephen Curry celebrated by popping a momentary squat - which some have interpreted as Curry pretending to defecate on the Cavs' court. "Try to close out at Oracle".
