NBA Playoffs: Thunder vs. Warriors Game 5 open thread

Can the Thunder close out the Warriors tonight?

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Exactly two weeks ago the San Antonio Spurs became the best team in history that failed to reach the NBA Finals. Tonight their place a top that leaderboard is in jeopardy. The Oklahoma City Thunder have stunned the Warriors in two straight games to push the record-setting defending champions to the brink of elimination. The Warriors and their fans are sad.

When? 9 p.m.

Where? Oracle Arena

Broadcast? TNT

Cleveland fans, however, are not sad. Oklahoma City is playing fantastic basketball, but they present fewer match up problems for our roster. As a result, for the first time this year the Cavaliers are considered the Championship favorite (although a win tonight could very well push the Thunder ahead in the odds).

The Thunder are playing amazing and unique basketball right now. For that reason alone, this game is worth watching for every fan of the game. Add in the fact that the Cavaliers may soon be playing one of these teams for the title, and this is a can't miss game.
