The Golden State Warriors will face the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the 2016 NBA Finals tonight at 6 p.m. PST.
And they'll have to do so without the help of star forward Draymond Green, who is serving a one-game suspension as you probably already know if you've found your way here.
So for tonight, the Warriors coach Steve Kerr has selected 2015 NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala, who will undoubtedly begin the game guarding LeBron James.
With the team reportedly ticked off about Green's suspension and defending home court with a chance to clinch a second consecutive championship against a team that did nothing but hate on them since the 2015 NBA Finals, I'm hopeful for a win tonight.
It simply can't get much sweeter than the Warriors beating the Cavs at home without Green after all the mess the Cavs talked for the last year — as Adam Lauridsen perfectly wrote, "I expect the Warriors' response to this unfortunate incident to only increase their legend..." (h/t BornInDaEB for the FanShot).
Draymond's had his teammate's backs every second of this season. Monday night, they'll repay the loyalty.— Fast Break (@GSWFastBreak) June 12, 2016
Now's the time to show what Strength In Numbers is really about.
Win or lose, please do not comment at Fear The Sword. Those who do will be subject to the same ban/warning here that they receive there. This could be a big night - let's be gracious either way.
Who do you want to replace Draymond Green in the starting lineup for Game 5?
