NBA Finals Game 5: Can Warriors Put Away Cavs?

2017 NBA Finals

Can Cavs Repeat History in NBA Finals?

The Cavs will be riding the momentum of a hot-shooting in a 137-116 triumph in Game 4 of the NBA Finals in Cleveland on Friday. Tonight they attempt to complete another Finals comeback. This one from a 3-0 series hole. Golden State still holds a 3-1 series edge. Game 5 starts tonight around 9 pm EST on ABC.

The Cavaliers rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the best-of-seven series in 2016. They stunned the defending champs in 2016 using a 112-97 win in Game 5 in Oakland as a springboard.

In game 4 of the 2017 finals Cleveland burned the Warriors on 24-of-45 shooting from 3-point range on Friday. The Cavaliers outscored Golden State 72-33 from beyond the 3-point line. Oddsmakers opened up the Warriors as 9-point favorites in Game 5. The total was set at 230.5. After almost three days of wagering, gamblers have bet the line to 8.5 and the total is at 231.

Can Warriors Continue Home Dominance?

The Warriors dominated their two previous home games in the series. They did so by winning 113-91 and 132-113. It was the first time in NBA Finals history that one team opened with consecutive wins by 19 or more points.

Warriors fans are hoping to share in the fun this time around. No San Francisco Bay Area professional team has won a championship at home since the Oakland Athletics captured the 1974 World Series. The Warriors captured the 2015 title in Cleveland with a 105-97 victory in Game 6. They lost Game 7 last year at home to the Cavs 93-89.
