Is this it for the Golden State Warriors? If the Oklahoma City Thunder beats the Dubs in Game 5 on May 26, the defending NBA Champions are eliminated! HollywoodLife.com wants you to see this epic game so click to watch.
At one time, it seemed like the Golden State Warriors were invincible. It has taken Kevin Durant, 27, Russell Westbrook, 27, and the rest of the Oklahoma City Thunder just three games in the NBA Playoffs to flip that script. Can Steph Curry, 28, Draymond Green, 26, and the Dubs recover, or is it all over for the Warriors?
The Dubs better hope they can reclaim some of the magic that made them golden when they host the Thunder at home on May 26. OKC, on the other hand, will try to crush every Warriors fan’s heart by winning Game 5 at the Oracle Arena in beautiful Oakland, California. Will this game be the start of an epic comeback? The action kicks off at 9:00 P.M. EST so be ready to watch!
“This team is outplaying us right now,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr, 50, said after losing Game 4, 118-94, “and we’ve got to come up with some answers.” The Warriors are not playing like the team that broke the NBA Winning record, per NBA.com, as the Warriors lost two games in a row for the first time all season. Not to mix sports metaphor, but it’s three strikes and the Dubs are out. If you think Golden State will rebound, show your pride by getting an official Warriors t-shirt here.
While Coach Kerr is looking for answers, OKC’s Russell Westbrook is looking for a high-five. “I thought my energy was good,” Russell said after the Game 4 win, according to ESPN. “I know my energy and my aggression can kind of impact the game, and that’s what I try to do…try to attack the basket and use my size and ability to get to the basket and create some havoc.” Create some havoc of your own by getting an official OKC Thunder t-shirt here.
In Game 4, Steph was only held to 19 points, while Draymond didn’t even crack double digits. At least he didn’t kick anyone in the crotch that time. The only Warrior who had a decent night was Klay Thompson, 26, and he only made 26 points. That’s as many points made by Kevin Durant, who came in second after Russell’s monster 36-point game.
If the Warriors are eliminated from the NBA Playoffs while at home, it will hurt like the time Steph got socked in the face. Will the NBA MVP pull off another jaw-dropping, game winning performance? Or has the sun set on Golden State’s incredible season?
Who do you think is going to win this game, HollywoodLifers?
