Warriors on Course for Second Straight Title

Stay the course, cherished readers.

When last we spoke, Sport in Saigon predicted that the mighty Golden State Warriors would need six games to vanquish the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the series is playing out as expected. But make no mistake; Game Six is where this series ends.

LeBron James is no fool, and has managed to coax some high-level contributions from his castmates. James and teammate Kyrie Irving each scored 41 points in the Cavs’ 112-97 victory in Game Five in California, denying the Warriors a chance to claim the title on their homecourt.

Drawing on experience from the Eastern Conference Finals, the Cavs have managed to get a little help from the zebras with the refs handing Golden State’s Draymond Green a one-game suspension. With one of their stalwart (but admittedly aggressive) defenders out, James and Irving attacked relentlessly with Golden State unable to answer in kind.

But, same as last year, Stephen Curry will make it rain in Game Six, Green will impede the Cavs’ offence just enough and championship-starved Cleveland sports fans will have a jersey bonfire when James tires of the Cavs’ inability to give him titles, abandoning his home state for sunny California. Maybe next season will be a purple-and-gold one for King James?

At any rate, have trust in the Hodge. Bay Area sports fans, plan the parade route. Hodge out.

Check out the Game 5 highlights below. Sport in Saigon back our writers all the way but after game 5 are quite interested to see how the Warriors stop Le Bron and Irving in Game 6 to finish this thing…
