In Game 5, The Golden State Warriors had a chance to close out the series at Oracle Arena. Klay Thompson had 37 of the team's 97 points and Curry made 25 points. However, the absence of 6′7″ Forward Draymond Green had a huge impact on the game. The Warriors missed his offensive power and defensive versatility. The Cleveland easily scored 112 points in the game. In addition, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving each scored 41 points.
Green has been the primary defender of James in the last four games, holding the Cleveland star for just 24.8 points per game. With Green's absence, James had a terrific performance with 41 points, 16 rebounds and seven assists.
Bleacher Report said Cleveland's bench players have to step up to force Game 7. They also need the offensive performance of Kevin Love who only had two points in the last game. The team can rely on their home-court advantage at Quicken Loans Arena, where they are 8-1 in the postseason.
With that said, let's see who will win the Thursday's match-up.
