Base on records, There have been many challenges to the Golden State Warriors during their five seasons atop the National Basketball Association
And none have required the grit and determination the present situation now presents.
Possibly again without injured All-Star Kevin Durant and on the verge of seeing their bid for a “three-peat” quashed
the Warriors look to bring the NBA Finals back to Oakland as they face an elimination game Monday night in Game 5 versus the Toronto Raptors
For all the talk of how Toronto lacked much championship experience
what has been provided by Ibaka, now Finals MVP frontrunner Kawhi Leonard and
Danny Green has been immeasurable in terms of poise and purpose in getting this team to the brink of a title.
The Warriors have been down 3-1 in a series during their five-season run of excellence, overturning that deficit against Durant
and the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2016 Western Conference finals
before having the trick turned on them in the finals that year by LeBron James and the Cavaliers.
Durant joined Golden State after that NBA Finals loss and won back-to-back NBA Finals MVP awards in helping the Warriors lift the Larry O’Brien trophy the last two seasons.
Durant’s strained calf has sidelined him into a fifth week, and the prospects of him returning appear to have improved.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr confirmed Durant will practice with the team Sunday, and the team will continue to monitor his progress.
Kerr did not tip his hand other than to say he was hopeful because Durant was doing more, but it still appears to be unknown if he will play Monday night.
Kevon Looney was part of Golden State’s struggles, but considering the Warriors big man had previously been ruled out of the series due to a collarbone injury suffered in Game 2
Of course, his contributions of 10 points and six rebounds in just over 20 minutes were an unexpected bonus.
Golden State’s bid to become just the second team in NBA Finals history to overcome a 3-1 deficit is a daunting one as there have been only 11 instances in NBA postseason history.
And of those 11, only three teams — the 1968 Boston Celtics, the 1995 Houston Rockets
and the 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers — were able to do it winning Games 5 and 7 on the road.
Toronto Raptors have given themselves three chances to close out this series for their first NBA title in franchise history after their sweep of the Warriors in Oakland.
