On Monday night, the Golden State Warriors will get another chance to win their second NBA Championship in the past three seasons. Their attempts at closing out the postseason a perfect 16-0 failed thanks to LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and the Cleveland Cavaliers running them out of Quicken Loans Arena.

The game also featured emotions running high, as there were chippy moments between various players on the two teams. Now the Warriors will hope that a return to Oracle Arena for their own rowdy fans will be just what they need to win. Here's the latest on the Game 5 preview including odds and how to watch the Cavs vs.

Warriors live streaming or on TV.

Game preview

The Cleveland Cavaliers set the tone early on in Game 4, rolling out to a hefty lead. In just the first quarter, the Cavs set a new NBA Finals record for most points in a quarter with 48. Despite what looked like a tough lead, the Warriors kept fighting and making comeback attempts. Ultimately though, Curry, Klay, and Durant couldn't make that comeback.

The Cavs won it 137-116 behind a triple-double from LeBron, and 40 points from Kyrie Irving. Basically, the Cavs didn't want to be on the other side of history by allowing the Warriors a perfect postseason, or the celebration on their court.

There were key moments of the previous game where big fouls led to further stoppages and near fights.

However, both teams remained composed for the most part, and nobody was tossed from the game. There was even a bizarre moment in which it looked like Draymond Green had earned his second technical foul only for it to be noted that his technical in the first half really belonged to coach Steve Kerr.

Now the two teams return to Oracle Arena where Golden State captured the first two games of the series.

It's now a 3-1 lead, and plenty of fans are joking about history. For the Warriors, they'll be looking to put those jokes to rest with a celebratory championship win on Monday.

The oddsmakers have already given the Warriors 8-1/2 points as favorites on the point spread. The moneyline is at -330 for Golden State and +270 for Cleveland.

The game's over/under will be 231 points for the complete game.
