Event of the day

Our event of the day is Game 5 of the NBA Finals as the Golden State Warriors host the Cleveland Cavaliers with the NBA title on the line. The Cavaliers took the series to a fifth game after a record breaking 137-116 win. Performances from All-Star players Kyrie Irving and LeBron James have given Cleveland a glimmer of hope of a remarkable series comeback. The Cavaliers set a number of new NBA Finals records in game 4 - 49 points in the first quarter, 86 points in the first half and 24 three pointers in one game. That was not the only history made in the fourth game, the 137 points scored by the 2016 champions was the most points scored in a NBA Finals in three decades. Remembering the 3-1 series comeback from 2016, the Warriors will have to be wary of the confidence Cleveland will carry into this game. However, Cleveland will know that the Warriors are a formidable force in Oakland. An exciting night of NBA Finals action is in store.
