Crucial Game 5 of the NBA FinalsPublished June 14, 2015 by Sol FH
Can the Cavs bounce back after a big Game 4 loss. Catch the action live at 1:00 GMT.
The NBA Finals have been living up to everyone's expectations. Both the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors have upped their game and are proving that either one can win the game on any given night. With the series again tied, we head back to ORACLE Arena in Oakland California to see if the Warriors can use home court advantage to go up 3-2.
Game 4 was a night that the Cavs would like to forget, but need to learn from. The weight of tonight's game may be more so than ever, on the shoulders of LeBron James. "I'm in a spot where I have to be very productive, and that's just the spot I've always been in," James related on Saturday. The real, and discouraging statistic is that James had averaged over 40 points over the first three games of the NBA Finals and in Game 4 he only had 20 points, shooting 7-of-22. The Cavs need their other stars Irving and Love back, but that will not be until next season.
NO one can question that is is an amazing NBA Championship. If the critics would've been correct, the Warriors would have won in 4 from the way they made it sound prior to the series. Both teams are comfortable but first year NBA Coach David Blatt seems like he is in the drivers seat. "We've had a couple of days here to recover. I believe that's going to be helpful," he said. "This is a tough series for both teams, a lot of things happening. I like the challenge that's in front of us, and I can't wait to play tomorrow."

With both teams rested it could go either way. The Cavs will most likely come into tonight's game looking to get revenge for the Game 4 blowout but it will be tougher than ever in California. Expect the Warriors to win by a very slight margin.
