Regardless of how it was accomplished the Cleveland Cavaliers were able to capture their second win in Game 5 and live to fight another day. Personally if I was Steve Kerr I’d be making sure the entire Warriors team is dialed in to recognize the Cavs will more than likely target Draymond Green yet again in Game 6 in an effort to get him tossed from the game and give them an opportunity to win the series since he would then also miss Game 7.

I recognize Green did this to himself, but ask yourself if you can recall Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant or Tim Duncan ever lowering themselves to try to take our their top defender so they could win.  Rather, those 3 players all wanted to beat the best. Then again, LeBron James for all his claims of taking the high road. Um isn’t this the same guy who made fun of Dirk Nowitzki, who said Kerr who helped coach the Warriors to the best record in League history didn’t deserve to win Coach of the Year over Terry Stott and questioned Steph Curry winning MVP in a season where he improved over his first MVP year. And, let’s not forget the high road he apparently took by rubbing his home town’s face in “The Decision”. I’d say Mr. James needs to take a long hard look in the mirror.

As for the Green suspension our good buddy (Tim Donaghy) returns along with his twist on the conspiracy theories:

Shortly into Game 5 LeBron James got on Kevin Love:

And while the Warriors will get back their main big man in Green for Game 6 the injury to his knee looked bad. He’ll be undergoing an MRI and based on how bad it looked it feels doubtful he’ll be available to play.
