Isn’t it sad? LeBron James has to put up a titanic triple double just for the Cavs to stand a chance. James scored 40 points, grabbed 14 boards and tossed 11 assists. Yet, Golden State still beat them by double digits. The Warriors won Game 5 , 104-91. They’ll head to Cleveland in hopes of getting their first championship in decades.
The game was closer than what the final score indicates. It was a single-digit contest for the most part, but the game blew open in the fourth quarter. James scored a big three only to see Steph Curry return the favor immediately after. It was downhill from there. Curry went off for 37 points and made all the talk about Matthew Dellavedova containing him seem ridiculous.
The Cavaliers — or more accurately James Plus Seven — make potentially their last stand on Tuesday, but it’d be a surprise if they go down without a fight.
