Look for Oakland to party well into Tuesday morning after the Warriors take the series and Kevin Durant is named Finals MVP.

LeBron James, left, with Kevin Durant at Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, June 9. "Like I said in the previous postgames, there's no other option". Although I originally picked the Warriors in five, I altered my prediction to Warriors in four after the first three games of the series.

Moreover, this series was the highest rated through the first three games of any NBA Finals since Michael Jordan and Chicago Bulls beat Utah's Jazz 19 years ago. They have the experience, they know what it takes to win it all and, most of all, they'll never ever hand it to you on a silver platter.

The game-changing spurt ended with a scuffle when Golden State's David West shoved Irving as he tried to grab the ball away.

Golden State coach Steve Kerr wanted the Warriors to be more anxious, ready and eager in Game 5 after their 137-116 loss in Game 4.

Durant was the difference as the Warriors won their second title in three years and won the rubber match in their so-called three-match with the Cavaliers. Pachulia then delivered two swipes to Shumpert's groin area, leading to technical fouls on both players. "Nothing has crossed the line".

But like previous year, when they not only lost Game 5 at home but also the winner-take-all Game 7, the Warriors promise to take the court Monday night taking nothing for granted.

Curry might not be overreacting, but his performance - as well as the performance of Kyrie Irving against him - will be scrutinized and analyzed from now until Game 5 tips off Monday night. "We're going to earn it". But you just have keep a body on them as much as possible and try to make their shots a little bit more hard.

"We have to be 20 times better in this building", said James, who has won at least one road game in 29 straight postseason series.

The play came in the third quarter of the Cavs' Game 4 win. So there was a measure of redemption as much for him as the Warriors, who lost to the Cavaliers previous year after beating them in 2015. They get more calls, are able to complain to the officials, and get the benefit of the doubt- most of the time. I don't see anything amusing or anything to smile about.

"He's risky so we just wanted to limit his shots, take the ball out of his hands", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said.

"I don't want any type of excuse or anything backing between the Warriors beating us fair and square. If it's talking trash or knocking guys on the floor, whatever you got to do, you got to do it".
