Enough of Lebron James flash and their kinda bad Game 4 the other day, the CLE Cavs can't afford to make desperate moves and lose this game, and that's exactly what GSW Warriors are also aiming now. Who's gonna take a 3-2 lead after NBA Finals 2015 Game 5? Let's all find out...

1ST HALF:
Since there was no more exposure of his "you know", it's turning out to be an excellent game for Cavs' LeBron James. This first half alone, he's already close to making his 2nd triple-double in this whole NBA Finals 2015: 20 points, 8 rebounds, 8 assists. JR Smith so far has 14, and Iman Shumpert has 7.

GSW on one hand has Steph Curry, Danny Green and Leandro Barbosa as its Top 3 scorers in the first half with 15, 12 and 9 points respectively.

3RD QUARTER
At 8:31 - LeBron now with a double-double: 22 pts, 10 rebs. 1 more assist, he has a triple-double.

At 5:54 - 2 free throws for Green. 60-61

At 5:51 - CLE's Tristan Thompson on his 3rd consecutive basket attack. 63-60

At 4:56 - Game tied at 63, when another Thompson, this time from the Warriors, makes a layup and earns 1 FT.

At 3:11 - Back-to-back shots by LeBron and Curry. The former has 24 pts already, while Curry is exploding too with 20. 65-66

At 2:25 - Andre Iguodala jumps for a 3. 65-69

At 1:21 - Layup by Barbosa. 66-71

At 0:57 - Cavs' Thompson hits 1 of 2 FT. 67-71

At 0:35 - Barbosa to the free throw line, and scored to bring back GSW's lead to 6. 67-73. THe quarter ends with those scores.

4th QUARTER
At 11:48 - LeBron layup to lift his points to 26. 69-73

At 9:35 - LeBron with a 3, followed by Shumpert also with a 3, and the scores are even. 75-75. At this point, LeBron already has triple-double: 29-12-10.

At 6:49 - GSW leads again by 5. 80-85

At 3:10 - GSW on their biggest lead of 10, after a 2 and a 3 by Curry. 86-96

At 2:02 - LeBron attempts to cut down the lead by making a 3 and he succeeds. GSW's Iguodala hits 1 of 2 FT. 86-97. LeBron now with 40.

At 0:36 - And the lead even went up to 15. 89-104. Curry is the hero. He made another 3 pointer plus 4 FTs.

At 0:26 - Cavs' Thompson dunks (too late!). 91-104.

And Game 5 ends on GSW side, 91-104, now leads series 3-2. Hmmmm...looks like there will be Game 7.

Biggest lead by GSW was 15 points, in the 4th Quarter: at 0:36.
Biggest lead by CLE was 7 points, twice in the 2nd Quarter: at 7:10 and at 4:20.

LeBron James' triple-double (40-14-11) was put to waste, and his fans might blame this guy, Steph Curry, who was unbelievable in Game 5. He's the hero in that big win by the Warriors.
