After one of the largest road wins in NBA Finals history, the Golden State Warriors return to the bay with momentum as they look to take the upper hand in the series.

This series so far has offered all of the fixings to be one of the most entertaining NBA Finals in league history. After two straight losses in games 2 and 3, the Warriors avoided their first three game losing streak of the season with a 21 point victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in game 4. To win game 5, the Dubs will need to set the pace and play with a heightened sense of urgency, much like they did on Thursday.

The Warriors enter game 5 as eight point favorites over the Cavs according to Bovada Sports Book, making it the second time in the series the Dubs are big favorites after winning a game. There has been a lot of speculation about the Cavs level of fatigue and if we are finally starting to see them wear thin. Cleveland comes into game 5 at plus-295 on the moneyline, making them an enticing bet to any gambler.

The under has been a lock all series long as only one game in the series has gone over, which was game 1 thanks in part to the game going to overtime. The over/under is set at 195 for game 5 and quite honestly there is not much else to say about this game that has not already been said. More than any game of the series, I expect the Warriors and the Cavaliers to battle for control of the tempo as the Cavs will look to slow it down and make the crazed fans at Roarcle a non-factor.

I wish the best of luck to you good sirs. <strong>GO WARRIORS!</strong>
