Heartbreak: Near perfection was not enough for LeBron James and the Cavaliers in Game 3.

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers defends Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors in the third quarter in Game 4.

"Yeah, they messed that one up bad", said Green. "If they make tough threes over us when can nearly live with those instead of the stare down, rhythm - you can make a sandwich before someone can out there and you knock it down". It's not only because we didn't play well.

But after getting moved off the ball at times, Irving played much better in the two games at home. The Warriors lead 3-1 with Game 5 set for Monday night at Oracle Arena.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are down 3-1 again to the Warriors.

"You hear some chatter going on throughout the Warriors locker room in terms of them trying to end it here, and it was another do-or-die game for us, and we had to leave it all out there", Irving said. Add in that Golden State has 2016 in the back of their minds, and it gives the wine and gold a little more advantage if the series does go to a Game 6 and Game 7. Especially me, because that taste wouldn't have been the same if we would have lost tonight and they would have celebrated on our home floor. While Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant are the team's best players, he is their heartbeat. While the Cavs, nearly all of them, were drilling 3s from all over the court, at a 53% pace, the Warriors shot an incredible (as in incredibly bad) 11 for 39 from three. 28%.

Curry, Durant and Co. will definitely be more focused tonight, so the Cavs will have to be ready from the opening tip.

Durant: "Well, I mean, before then, I was on teams that, we weren't contenders". "We're playing against a great team, and we know you have to play great every single night".

"Yeah, they make me feel good", said Green. I thought our defensive mindset was really good, and I thought offensively we really played with a pace.

The Cavs also have a small bit of National Basketball Association history on their side, as James' teams have won at least one road playoff game in a league-record 29 straight series. At the very least, the near-win gave Cleveland some life.

Game 6, if necessary, would be played Thursday in Cleveland, with the series potentially returning to Oakland for a second consecutive Game 7 on Sunday. We know it's not going to be an easy game for us. The fans, those watching, and even the announcers thought that Green would be ejected for his second tech; however, the refs sorted everything out and finally got everyone on the same page. "And when he's playing free and you don't bring physicality, he's able to roam and do whatever he wants offensively. I am looking for a victory", said Rachel Uthman, Fremont resident.

If the Warriors can close out the tough-to-eliminate Cavs on Monday, they would become the first Bay Area team to capture a championship at home since the A's finished the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 5 of the 1974 World Series. "Talking trash, being physical, whatever you got to do to get that edge, you got to do it".

Warriors fans are eagerly hoping to see their team hoist the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy on Monday.

"I expect us to come out guns blazing". He ran the same play with the ball now in his hands, took the trap, faked a pass to Thompson to get Curry to jump out of position, then whipped a pass to Smith for the open three.
