Cavaliers top Warriors to stay alive in NBA finals

Noah Ferguson | 12 June, 2017, 12:32

And, like in last year's NBA Finals, Cleveland seemingly got under Golden State's skin by being more physical. He scored 38 points in the Game 3 loss before his big Game 4 performance.

For the fourth time in two years, Cleveland fought off elimination in the NBA Finals by winning just when it appeared their season was over.

No one is suggesting downright dirty play, with players undercutting opponents or smacking them or crossing any lines. In order to win, the Warriors will have to be smart on the defensive end for 48 minutes. I think they came in with a game plan and we came in with a game plan and we happened to get that one. They're assembled as good as you can be as a professional team, and they're on a quest to win a championship.

And if it fires up the team, go with it! But we knew what we were faced with.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue has the same approach he adopted previous year. MVP-caliber basketball. But you're still getting blown out the water.

The NBA is reviewing several incidents from last night's game, according to reports. With thirteen 3 Pointers in the 1st Half, they broke the most by a team in a half.

If they lose again, Kerr should do the noble thing and take a broken sternum and ensuing hospitalization for the team.

It can sound more like a prize fight than a basketball game, but the first punch is going to be huge in Game 5.

The ninth career NBA Finals triple- double by James broke the all-time record he shared with Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson. "If I felt better, I was going to do it". They slowed the game down. They're going to make adjustments. Cleveland shot 53 percent from the field and.533 from 3-point range. They were lucky that the Cavaliers missed eight of those free throws or else it could have been even more ugly. At the end of the Half it was [86-68] Cav's. "So we're in a great spot, and now we have to capitalize", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. Their attempts at closing out the postseason a flawless 16-0 failed thanks to LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and the Cleveland Cavaliers running them out of Quicken Loans Arena. A lot of fouls and technicals. "It causes too much stress", James said. After all of that the Cav's cemented their win in the 4th Quarter. Curry's streak of 20-point games ended at 13.

Bench play is also key for Cleveland, whose reserves are playing inconsistently in these Finals. LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Tristin Thompson are the only players in the series who were drafted by Cleveland.

LeBron James: 31 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists. Kyrie Irving had a whopping 40 Points, and boy was he hot.

Kevin Love, 23 points. He was instrumental in keeping the 19 point lead.

"I kind of liked the aura and what we had going on", Smith said. "When I say something, I've thought about what I'm going to say before I say it. I think he's averaging like 30", said Warriors guard Shaun Livingston. And finally in Game 4 we broke down a little bit of the door, a little bit of getting that monkey off our back of having the pressure just exclusively be on us. It's early still, but the experience of doing it a year ago - against the very team that had it done to them - instantly added some needed drama to this 2017 title chase, as steep as the hill still looks.
