Mellower Green playing this game five after 2016 NBA ban

The Warriors have been led in the Finals by Kevin Durant, the ground-shaking free-agent acquisition from last season who was the 2014 MVP and has perhaps reshaped the GoldenState-Cleveland rivalry forever. It was demoralizing to say the least.

No team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit in the National Basketball Association history, but the Cavaliers have some experience in historic comebacks. You can also download the WatchESPN app to watch what could be the last game of the 2017 NBA Finals - or the second game in an incredible four-game Cleveland comeback - on mobile devices. But they look in the mirror and see the same team, one that is willing to use whatever motivations present themselves. And ended up winning the Title by snatching it out of the hands of the Warriors.

"The game is supposed to be played physically", James said. This is a team that will not go down easy.

A couple factors weigh heavily in the Warriors' favor: They will have Kevin Durant and Draymond Green.

The bitter memories of a year ago, even as they live in the back of their minds, are just that.

Kyrie Irving led all scorers with 40 points. Then in what turned out to be one of the most raucous quarters in NBA Finals history, he picked up another one in the third quarter.

That postseason perfection is no longer in play might ease pressure ever so slightly. Up 3-0, there certainly wasn't any real urgency or desperation in Steve Kerr's script.

Did everyone really think Golden State - as good as they have played - are that much better than the Cavs? "With a coach or trainer, we just verbalize, and at that time, we should listen to the P.A. announcer to who it is on".

The Cavs hit the 80-point mark with 1:33 left in the half. There's no slowing down despite the struggles in Game 1 and 2, just the constant ability to try and dominant, out-execute, and out-shoot the opposition. "He's a guy that sets the tone for them".

The referees should never see the side of a basketball court again but they were not primary offenders on defense, leaving shooters open repeatedly, turning the ball over on offense with ball movement a foregone preclusion. He was also very physical on defense against Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson helping make them both shoot well under their averages from the field. As talented and accomplished as they've been, these Cavs are best when the chips are down. It was like a clinic, the way that they played. In a report by ESPN, the experienced player shared his thoughts about the Cavaliers' potential pursuit of George. Golden State will be at full strength this time, and while the Warriors have finally lost a game, they haven't lost any confidence. Let's face it, there were a lot of penalties called. Nope. Did he get a technical foul? "It causes too much stress, man". The Cav's consistently matched point for point in the 2nd Half.
