6-17-15: On Tuesday night Game Six of the NBA Finals was played in Cleveland, with the Cavaliers' backs against the wall and the Golden State Warriors on the brink of a championship. Cleveland was the home team as the game took place inside the Quicken Loans Arena, but the team didn’t play like it in the first quarter taking an early 13 point deficit after the first twelve minutes. LeBron James and company led a charge back before halftime but the trio of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Andre Iguodala were too much to handle for the short sided Cavaliers. Curry and Iguodala each scored 25 points while Thompson managed five points in 24 minutes to make up for much of the Warriors offense on the night. While the offense was great the defense was that much better as the team notched 11 steals, 32 defensive rebounds, and forced 16 turnovers including six by LeBron. James once again carried the Cavaliers narrowly missing another triple-double when he posted 32 points, 18 rebounds and nine assists but it was not enough in the eventual 105-97 loss to Golden State to wrap up the series. This may have been an entirely different series if Cleveland had Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love but we may never know for sure. The Golden State Warriors are the 2014/2015 NBA Champions and Iguodala is the NBA Finals MVP.
6-15-15: On Sunday night the NBA Finals kicked back off with the series tied at 2-2 apiece with the pivotal Game Five going down in Golden State’s ORACLE Arena. Neither team wanted to be on the brink of elimination so Stephen Curry put his Golden State Warriors team on his back and went to war with LeBron James. Curry and James traded bucket for bucket and shot for shot for much of the contest as James looked well on his way to yet another NBA Finals triple-double in the contest. Curry may not have posted a triple-double but he did score 37 points with a ton of help from his supporting cast and his bench. The Cavaliers were short-handed on the bench and fatigue showed in the fourth quarter allowing Golden State to pull away and win the contest by the final score of 104-91. James did finish with a triple-double for Cleveland but it is Golden State that takes the 3-2 in the best of seven series.
6-12-15: On Thursday night the NBA Finals resumed with Game Four being played in Cleveland with the Cavaliers leading the best of seven series 2-1. After losing the last two games in the series the Warriors looked like a sleeping giant coming into the contest but by the time the final buzzer sounded the team definitely looked awake. Golden State had a bit of an offensive explosion in the fourth quarter of their Game Three loss to Cleveland and used that momentum and game plan here in Game Four and executed it to perfection. The Warriors had a seven point lead after one quarter and a 12 point lead at halftime before seeing that lead cut in half in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter Andre Iguodala and Stephen Curry exploded as the duo combined for 44 points in an eventual 103-82 rout of the Cavaliers. Iguodala came up big when the Warriors needed him most as Klay Thompson managed just nine points in 39 minutes in the series tying victory for Golden State. The best of seven NBA Finals is now tied at 2-2 apiece.
6-10-15: On Tuesday night the NBA Finals shifted to Cleveland with the series tied at one game apiece. Golden State won the first game of the series before the Cavaliers came roaring back with a Game Two victory in overtime setting up this pivotal Game Three.

Golden State started off this contest slow as well scoring just 37 points in the first half and 55 points entering the final quarter behind another slow night from Curry. The 2015 NBA Most Valuable Player scored 27 points with most of them coming in the fourth quarter when the Warriors offense finally decided to click but it was too little too late in a 96-91 loss to LeBron James and the Cavaliers. With the loss the Warriors now trail the Cavaliers 2-1 in the best of seven series.
6-8-15: On Sunday night the 2015 NBA Finals continued with Game Two of the series in Golden State after the Warriors took a 1-0 lead in the first contest. Golden State looked to take advantage of a short-handed Cavaliers team without Kyrie Irving inside their home court where they have posted a 47-3 record in their last 50 games. Another game and another contest that could not be decided in four quarters as these two teams battled back and forth until the five minute overtime period began. Unfortunately for the Warriors Stephen Curry had possibly his worst game of this playoff run scoring just 19 points in 42 minutes leading the offense to be run through Klay Thompson for much of the night. Thankfully for the Warriors Thompson scored 34 points in 45 minutes but the team had no answer for LeBron James. Golden State allowed James to drop a 39 point, 16 rebounds and 11 assist triple-double on them and allowed him to take over the overtime period in an eventual 95-93 loss for Golden State. With the loss the Warriors lost home-court advantage as the series was evened up at 1-1 apiece with the series now shifting to Cleveland for Game Three.

Golden State seemed to be suffering from a bit of rust in the first half of the contest as the Warriors high flying offense trailed by three points at halftime and only managed 48 points total as a team. In the second half the Warriors took advantage of a visibly injured and hobbled Kyrie Irving to stage their comeback behind the duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

In the overtime Thompson and Curry took over as they combined for 47 points on the night leading the Warriors to a 108-100 victory.

The Warriors continued to grind out the game until late in the fourth when it was obvious that Golden State had the game in hand. Dwight Howard led the Rockets in scoring with 18 points and 16 rebounds as well as dirty elbows and accidental knees to the head forcing the Warriors Klay Thompson out of the contest late with a concussion. The Warriors went on to win the game and the series by the final score of 104-90 despite losing Thompson behind Curry’s 26 points and six assists.

During the contest the Warriors and their fans held their collective breathes as Stephen Curry had to leave the game after a hard fall early on in the contest. The team looked to rally the offense without Curry but after giving up 45 points to the Rockets in the first quarter the team looked a little deflated for the remainder of the contest. Klay Thompson did his best to pick up the scoring slack left by Curry but his 24 points were not enough in an eventual 128-115 loss to James Harden and the Rockets. Harden led all scorers in the contest with 45 points as Houston stayed alive forcing a Game Five, a Game Five that Curry has been cleared to play in for Golden State.

Harden had 38 points and nine assists leaving Golden State with only one option if they wanted to win the game, simply outscore Houston. The Warriors took a narrow one point lead late into the contest but Houston had the final shot and Harden has his hands on the ball as he drove down for the final drive of the contest.

Golden State came into the series as the #1 overall seed in the NBA and fresh off a six game victory over the Memphis Grizzlies leaving many to wonder if Golden State was not as invincible as everyone thought heading into the playoffs. The Warriors did not do much to quell those questions in the first quarter as the team may have been suffering from a little rust from their long layoff falling down by seven points early to Houston before Stephen Curry woke up. Curry led all scorers in the contest with 34 points as he led Golden State all the way back to a three point lead at halftime and a five point lead entering the fourth quarter at home.

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson once again led the charge for Golden State combining for 43 points in the contest but the team as a whole went cold from beyond the arc essentially shooting themselves in the foot late. Golden State managed to hit just six of 26 shooting from three point land including Curry going 2-10 in a tough 99-89 loss to the Grizzlies. With the loss the Warriors find themselves searching for answers and a way out of this 2-1 series deficit in the best of seven series.
