The basketball world has been waiting to see Stephen Curry put on a classic performance. In Game 5, he rose to the occasion. 

Chef Curry had his best shooting game of the series, as the Golden State Warriors secured a 104-91 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Curry was lights out. He scored 37 points and had 17 in the fourth quarter alone. LeBron James did as much as humanly possible to give his team a chance to win. King James posted his second triple-double in this NBA Finals series and his third 40-point game.

Watch the video above as Bleacher Report's Ric Bucher discusses both players' Game 5 performances and what Game 6 entails for both teams.
