LeBron James secured his 6th career Finals triple double with 40 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists but in the end it still wasn’t sufficient. A solid team effort from the Warriors was enough to offset the one man show of James powering Golden State to a 104-91 victory in Game 5 giving Stephen Curry and crew a 3-2 series lead. Speaking of Curry, the Golden State guard made Game 2 look like a distant memory throwing down 37 points including some off-balance and pretty damn incredible three-pointers in the second half.
Cleveland though simply looked like a completely different team without James on the floor. No Kevin Love, no Kyrie Irving and without James on the floor 100 percent of the time the Cavs were forcing shots, turning over the ball and looked lost.
Now Golden State will try to close things out Tuesday night at the Q while Cleveland will look to avoid giving up the NBA title on their home floor.
