8Sports Talk: Did the NBA get what it wanted in Game 5 of the Finals?

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Episode 37 of 8SportsTalk is here — Where Virginia born and bred sports fans, who get paid to cover sports, try to make sense of the larger world of sports. The podcast will be posted each Monday and Friday.

On this edition, 8Sports Director Mitch Carr, 8Sports Anchor Chip Brierre, 8News Digital Content Manager/Online Reporter/Blogger Robb Crocker, 8News Digital Producer/Online Reporter/Blogger Will Armbruster, and 8News Vlogger/Editor Ron Carthen discuss Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

The NBA got what it wanted – a longer series. Is that why Draymond Green was suspended? A few of us think so.

None of us, however, can take anything away from the Cavs, who rode the historic efforts from Lebron James (41 points) and Kyri Irving (41 points) to steal a 112-97 win on the road and pull within one game of the Warriors (3-2).
