Some are saying that the Cleveland Cavaliers caught a break when they won Game 5 in Oakland with the Warriors missing an All-Star in Draymond Green. Others are saying the Cavaliers caught on fire in Game 5, especially LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, who scored a combined 82 points to put the Warriors to bed. Whatever the case may be, the series is now 3-2 with the Warriors having another chance to close out the Cavaliers.
“The Cavs wanted him suspended for two games. I can tell you that. They wanted it to be a flagrant 2 and to have him suspended for Game 5 and Game 6.”
The Cavaliers we’re really trying to push their luck by getting Draymond suspended for 2 games. That being said, the Warriors will be missing another crucial starter for the rest of the Finals, Center Andrew Bogut, with a knee injury. With Bogut out, you can expect the Warriors to be pushing the tempo a lot more. The Cavaliers will be playing Game 6 like it’s their last game and this time the Warriors will be equipped with Draymond Green to help answer back. The Warriors and Green were not happy about the suspension, especially the fact the Cavs tried to lobby for an even further suspension, showing how desperate the Cavaliers really were. You can bet that tonight’s biggest story line will be the return of Draymond Green. With tempers flaring and both sides getting heated and animated you can bet Game 6 will follow suit.
