Who won the Game 5 of NBA Finals last night? Scores, highlights
Stephen Curry played the most important role in the impressive win of Golden State Warriors against Cleveland Cavaliers last night. The Game 5 of NBA Finals 2015 seems to have surrounded around him and around his stellar performance.
Now his side, that was trailing 2-1 till the game 3, is 3-2 and ahead of Cavaliers. The team seems to have got its rhythm back and if all goes well, the side will wrap up the series in the Game 6 of the NBA Finals itself.
The best thing is the fact that his performance continued to improve in the match and he was his best towards the end of the crucial Game 5. He helped his side recover when it was needed and then Warriors didnâ€™t look back. Stephen Curry scored 17 of his points in the fourth quarter and was 7-of-13 from the 3-point line to lead the Warriors to a 104-91 win.
There is no denying the fact that LeBron James was the best performing single player in the match, like the whole of the series. Nonetheless his side couldnâ€™t capitalize on his performance.
Despite Stephen Curry not being able to match Jamesâ€™ performance, his side capitalized on his performance in a big way and won the match comprehensively. LeBron James came up with another match-winning performance â€“without actually winning it â€“ and came up with 40 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists.
Following his impressive performance Curry said, â€œIt was a fun moment, but it will only mean something — and I’ll probably have a better [answer] for that question after we win that championship — but signature moments only come for players who are holding the trophyâ€. Game 5 was both a duel between Stephen Curry and LeBron James, and the supporting casts. Golden State got the better of both in the end, as we detail.
Now as they have got a much needed and timely lead, the Warriors will try to win their first title since 1975 on Tuesday night in Cleveland, which hasn’t won a major sports championship in 51 years. Game 7, if necessary, would be in Oakland on Friday night.
Nonetheless LeBron James will try to defeat their plans. â€œI feel confident because I’m the best player in the worldâ€. The four-time MVP had 40 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists, slowing down the pace the way only he can. He made 15 of 34 shots in 44 minutes. Letâ€™s see what happens and let Warriors celebrate till the game 6.
