The regular-season MVP version of Curry was on display when he scored 17 points in the fourth quarter of Game 5 and was 7-of-13 from 3-point range for the contest. He struggled with his shooting early in the series — the 5-for-23 effort in Game 2 was particularly distasteful — and has made 18 3-pointers over the past three games while raising his series average to 26.2 points. “He had a tough first couple of games and he got going at the end of Game 3 in the fourth quarter and that’s all it takes,” Golden State coach Steve Kerr said in his press conference. “Steph makes a couple shots, he feels like he’s got it rolling, and he’s been great ever since.”

With Golden State playing a small lineup, Cleveland coach David Blatt opted to match it and turned center Timofey Mozgov into a spectator one game after Mozgov was sensational with 28 points and 10 rebounds. The Warriors are happy to play the faster pace and Blatt bristled when reporters repeatedly inferred he played into Golden State’s hand by using Mozgov for just nine scoreless minutes. “Did I make a mistake?” Blatt said in his press conference. “Listen, when you’re coaching a game, you’ve got to make decisions. I felt that the best chance for us to stay in the game and to have a chance to win was to play it the way that we played it. It’s no disrespect to anyone, certainly not to Timo, who has done a great job for us.”
