Vote: Will the Warriors close out the NBA Finals in Game 5?

It's become the most dangerous saying in sports: 3-1.

Thanks to 40 points from Kyrie Irving, a triple-double from LeBron James and an NBA Finals record 24 3-pointers, the Cleveland Cavaliers were able to avoid the sweep and beat the Golden State Warriors 137-116 in Game 4.

It's back to Oracle Arena for Game 5, where Stephen Curry & Co. are in a familiar position holding a 3-1 series lead. This year, the Warriors are hoping -- with Kevin Durant on their side -- to avoid the same fate as last season.

Does this series end Monday night, or will the Cavs survive and force a Game 6 back in Cleveland?

It's your turn to weigh in on all the possibilities.

If the Warriors hope to end this series on Monday night, they'll need to control the pace and run the floor. In Games 1-3, Golden State averaged 33.0 transition points. But in Game 4, Cleveland controlled the tempo by shooting 53 percent from the field, which limited the Warriors to just 12 transition points.

If the Cavs hope to stay alive, they'll need to shoot lights-out once again while limiting Curry, Durant and Klay Thompson's open looks.

Are we about to witness another historic comeback?

Game 4 tips off at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
