8:59 – We’re minutes away from Game 5 of the NBA Finals, and I’ve got a few questions on my mind. Will the Golden State Warriors win their second straight championship? Can the Cleveland Cavaliers force a Game 6? And most importantly, would Steph Curry please give me some much-needed dance tips?

9:05 – Serial nut puncher Draymond Green isn’t allowed to watch the game in person, but he will be extremely close by. This means he can still participate in the post-game champagne bukkake if the Warriors win.

That LeBron James 3-pointer was his first make outside the paint in the 1st half this series. He was 0-of-8 on them prior to that.

1Q 3:12 – Golden State leads 25-22. Both teams are feeling it from downtown, as the Warriors are 5-11 from 3-point range and the Cavs are 4-5 from 3-point range. It’s a damn shame this was only worth 2 points.

2Q 09.2 – We’re all tied up at 61-61. Just an absolute track meet.

Halftime – It’s 61-61 after a super entertaining half of basketball. LeBron and Thompson are both playing out of their minds right now.

Curry has 13 points on 4-8 shooting from the floor, and Irving has 18 points on 8-10 shooting from the floor. Golden State is shooting 11-21 from 3-point range, and they are well on pace to shatter their NBA Finals record of 17 made 3s, which they set in Game 4.

Cleveland is shooting a blistering 54.3% from the floor, but only 60% from the free throw line.

I co-sign this 100%.

if LeBron James finishes this game over 50 points + zero assists, he deserves to win a Kobe Bryant Memorial MVP award somehow.

3Q 10:07 – Cleveland’s up 67-64. Bogut’s down with a left knee injury and it did not look good in the slightest.

Tristan Thompson is 4-10 from the free throw line. Hack-A-Whoever is the worst. So damn boring.

4Q 11:03 – Cleveland’s up 95-87. LeBron’s currently getting a rest and it will be interesting to see how long Lue decides to leave him on the bench.

Final – The Cavs beat the Warriors 112-97 to force a Game 6. LeBron and Irving made history tonight, as they were the first pair of teammates to both score 40 or more points in the Finals. LeBron had 41 points on 16-30 shooting from the floor, 16 rebounds, and 7 assists. Irving had 41 points on 17-24 shooting from the floor, 3 rebounds, and 6 assists.

Thompson had 37 and Curry had 25, but the Warriors struggled mightily in the 2nd half. After halftime, Golden State scored only 36 points, and they went 3-21 from 3-point range.

Kevin Love scored 2 points in 33 minutes on 1-5 shooting from the floor. What a bum.

Game 6 will take place on Thursday, June 16 at 9:00 p.m. in Cleveland.
