Dwyane Wade on who he wants to win Game 5 between Cavs & Warriors
The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors are set to tip off Game 5 of the NBA Finals tonight at 6 PM EST inside the raucous Oracle Arena. The Cavs staged a tremendous bounce back performance in Game 4, hitting an NBA Finals record 24 three pointers en route to a 137-116 victory. LeBron James poured in a 31 point, 10 rebound, 11 assist triple double while Kyrie Irving added 40 points to force a Game 5.
Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade, who played four strong years with James as members of the Miami Heat, attended Game 4 to witness the performances. He had multiple funny exchanges with Irving and players on the court. Before the big game on Monday night, Wade was having a Twitter Q&A with fans, and one of the questions he was asked was who he thinks will win Game 5.
I'm not ready for the NBA to end. So I hope the Cavs pull it off. We need more epic basketball in all our lives. https://t.co/NfoyJo855i

From the sound of it, Wade isn’t in attendance for Game 5, but he’s rooting for the Cavs to force a Game 6 back in Cleveland and push the NBA season at least three more days.
