The Warriors can now clinch their first championship since 1975 with a win in Game Six on Wednesday in Cleveland.

Their Game Five win was a battle of speed, with both teams benching their big men as a strategic move.

"It was a chess match and we both have a bunch of wings and guards that can fill a lineup," Curry told reporters after connecting on seven three-pointers.
