The Golden State Warriors won the battle of small-ball and defeated the 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.

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