Steve Kerr is a freaking genius by putting Andre Iguodala back in the starting lineup and letting David Lee play some minutes again. The end result is that the Warriors blew out the Cavaliers 103-82 on Thursday though the game was closer than the final score ultimately was.

If there's one thing I can really appreciate about Kerr, it is that he is an open-minded guy, and someone who is as good of a listener as he is a leader and director. One of his special assistants, Nick U'Ren actually proposed to Kerr that he implement the idea, according to Fran Blinebury of NBA.com.

That, a number of collaborative coaching adjustments may just be partly why the Warriors live up to that #StrengthInNumbers hashtag. Once you add the ROARACLE Arena crowd, those numbers are even stronger.

Just wondering what the Cavs will to do tonight because they're getting close to having to go #ALLIN, in order to head back to the Q with a potential 3-2 series lead.

Game 5 of the NBA Finals is on at 8 p.m. ET on ABC or WatchESPN. Enjoy!
