24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
Game 5 of the 2016 NBA Finals seemed to have changed the entire dynamic of this series. With no Draymond Green in the lineup for the Warriors, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving went on individual tears to lead their Cavs squad to a huge season saving victory at Oracle Arena.
James exploded for 25 points and 9 rebounds in the first half in an exciting duel with Klay Thompson who had 26 in the first half, and finished the game with 41 points, 16 rebounds and 7 assists.
Kyrie Irving turned in a performance for the ages, pouring in 41 points on 17-of-24 shooting to go with 6 assists. Irving went at Steph Curry all game long, playing with a rage that had the whole world buzzing. The Cavs blew the Dubs out 112-97 and this series is headed back to Cleveland with the momentum appearing to have swung in the Cavs direction.
