    GS showed us that they are mentally weak last year. If this series starts to swing back to CLE, I don't think the Warriors are strong enough to handle it.

    I am skeptical that CLE can repeat the last game's effort but they have made things interesting.

    If CLE wins Game 5, this is going to get REAL INTERESTING.

    Desperate times call for desperate efforts. And Cleveland responded epically. However, I'm not sure that they can maintain the same performance on the road. If they win game five all the bets are off.

    Golden State is beatable. I agree that they are mentality weak. But I don't think that Cleveland has a great mental fortitude either. My feeling is Golden State is going to finish this thing off.

    Draymond is a very resilient player.
    I wish Drummond would have showed the same will to win.

    Golden state seems extremely mentally strong to me. They won a championship and beat the bulls all time reg season win record, without KD.

    And with him, they are 15-1 in the playoffs.

    They take gutsy shots, play really strong D (on a possession basis), and are unselfish.

    I have been enjoying Jeff Van Gundy in this. Dude is hilarious. After a Kyle Korver dunk, he says (I'm paraphrasing), "We should stop the game right now and give Kyle Korver the game ball. When's the last time he dunked in a game?" Then, after a Taco Bell promotion, he says, "I didn't need any extra incentive to go to Taco Bell. I love Taco Bell. Bean burrito."

    I knew you were a flip-flopping, bandwagoning as the wind blows, kind of guy.

    There could be a great movie called "A Very Van Gundy Christmas."

    Stan: "Jeff, you be Santa this year."
    Jeff: "I was Santa last year, Ron."
    Stan: "Stop calling me, Ron!"
    Mom Van Gundy: "Jeff, why are you calling him, Ron? You know his name is Stan."
    Stan: "Put the Santa cap on Jeff. The shine from your head is blinding me."
    Jeff: "Shouldn't you be looking for a job, Ron?"
    Stan: "I am still employed by the Pistons, Baldie."
    Jeff: "Not for long if you keep missing the playoffs."
    Mom Van Gundy: "That's enough, boys. Go to your rooms!"
    Stan: "This is YOUR fault, Jeff. You haven't changed. You're still immature."
    Jeff: "Lighten up, Francis."

    Yes, of course.!!!!

    Great minds think alike. So do the corrupted ones, though. :)

    I will go with the first one. Keep up posting. Don't be a stranger. You are a trooper. :)

    Tight game thus far. I can see CLE squeaking out a win if they can avoid giving up big runs.

    Perhaps the moms should be required to go through the interview process at the NBA Combine in Chicago.

    The rout is on now before halftime. CLE gave them daylight and are paying for it.
