Their rematch is a grueling battle where the Warriors led by Stephen Curry is seeking for a back to back title while the Cavaliers led by Lebron James is looking for the first ever championship for the franchise.
The NBA has a rule that if you got 4 technical fouls in the playoffs, you will automatically be suspended. Legions of fans of the Warriors got disappointed with the NBA’s decision while the players of the Cavaliers took it as an opportunity to win Game 5 and possibly return to their home court.
The warriors could’ve clinched the coveted title but Draymond Greens’ absence was felt during Game 5 when the Warriors lost to the Cavaliers with a score of 112-97. Lebron James and Kyrie Irving both had great performances. James scored 41 points, 16 rebounds and 7 assists while Irving also contributed with 41 points. They were the first teammates to score 41 points each at the NBA finals history.They were also glad to fight back on another game and the Cavaliers will have a homecourt advantage on Game 6.
Meanwhile Thompson earned 37 points and Curry got 25 points in a losing effort. Thompson revealed on his interview that Lebron must be fired up on what Green said to him after the Game 4 but he just laughed when the media asked what it’s all about.
