Curry not fazed by National Basketball Association finals history

And when the Cavs defeated Golden State 137-116 last time out, it was because they were brutal and unapologetic for it.

Fast forward one year later to Game 5 Monday night at Oracle Arena with the Warriors holding a 3-1 lead over the Cavs and hoping to clinch their second title in three seasons. "He does a great job of just affecting the game on both ends of the floor so you just try to keep a body on him, understanding that he can get hot in a matter of a second", Irving said.

"They're coming right after us so we have to go after them. If it's talking trash or knocking guys on the floor, whatever you got to do, you got to do it".

After the Cleveland Cavaliers' fantastic Game 4 win on Friday night in the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors, a user on Twitter Sunday broke down a LeBron James' Game 4 NBA Finals play, and it really is something spectacular.

"We have a golden opportunity going home on Monday to close this thing out, " Green said.

"I expect us to come out guns blazing".

"Obviously I can play better and want to play better and will play better". "There's no substitute for experiencing winning a championship and losing one for what else you need to know as a player". "We know what our keys to victory is".

The outspoken 27-year-old will try to help the Warriors, who lead this year's best-of-seven series 3-1, defeat the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday in Oakland to capture the crown. Teams throughout National Basketball Association playoff history, starting with the first round, are 126-0 when having a 3-0 lead.

"Bringing a physicality, being physical". The Warriors have a defensive rating of 97.2 in eight playoff games at Oracle, over four points per 100 possessions better than their postseason rating of 101.8.

What could be a coronation might also give the Warriors a coronary issue. They do not want to consider the alternative - opening the door for another potential Game 7 in Oakland, this time on June 18 after Game 6 in Cleveland on June 15.

The Golden State Warriors have been a favorite for most of the playoffs series, and little has changed with the Finals. "They don't just lay down and die", Durant said. "For us, every game's a game seven".

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been saying they're a better team when their backs are against the wall.

On Saturday, Green told the media, "I really don't pay much attention to anyone in Cleveland, honestly".

"It's natural for you to look up and see the finish line right there, and you tend to focus on that instead of the task at hand", Green said. "I just think he's excited to be in this position to have a chance to win another championship".

"When you have home court ideally you take care of business at home and get a split on the road". You can tweak some things, but are we going to play hard? They had a 73-win team and they added a former MVP [Kevin Durant]. But not since 1951 has a team down 3-0 forced a seventh game in the finals. They always just seem to have to take everything a step further, for whatever reason.

"We know the situation we're in". We all know that. He's going to make plays not only for himself but for his teammates.
