Israeli-American coach David Blatt's dream of winning an NBA championship may have to wait.
The Golden State Warriors won the battle of small-ball and defeated Blatt's Cleveland Cavaliers 104-91 on Sunday to move within a win of their first NBA title in 40 years.
Stephen Curry scored 37 points and the Warriors withstood a 40-point triple-double from LeBron James to grab a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series.
They can clinch their first championship since 1975 with a win in Game Six on Tuesday in Cleveland.
