Cavaliers stun Warriors to win Game 4

Mae Harvey | 11 June, 2017, 10:32

"They were phenomenal. Both guys played tremendous games, really did some fantastic things - one-on-one, making shots - and then they got a lot of contributions from others, too". With a 49-point first quarter, an 86-point first half, the Cavs coasted to a 137-116 win at Quicken Loans Arena and we're trudging on through the weekend to a Game 5 in Oakland Monday.

Cleveland stopped Golden State's flawless postseason and possibly started another comeback.

Some variation of those words was written or uttered somewhere nearly one year ago.

On Thursday, Green, whose suspension from last year's Game 5 for hitting James in the groin helped swing the series to Cleveland, said he was looking forward to celebrating on Cleveland's home floor for the second time in three years. The Cavaliers won the next three games and the championship. "The aggressor usually gets the whistle and they were the aggressor".

"No, they got us where they want us", LeBron James said. "We obviously know you can't just go home and expect to win". We did that, and hopefully we can do it Monday night. Now, Golden State fans are holding their breath. Teams that started 3-0 are a flawless 126-0. James had two foul shots with 2.9 seconds left and missed one, otherwise Cleveland would've hung 50 on the Warriors. The foul was originally announced to be on Draymond Green.

Curry: "C'mon, man this is insane!"

The Warriors might have two of the game's three top players, but LeBron James is still the best of his generation.

If they don't, it is just a haunting and cruel memory that won't go away. No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit in National Basketball Association postseason annals to win a series.

After being outplayed in the opening two games and then squandering a lead in the final minutes of the third game, the Cavaliers knew they needed to change their approach while their backs were up against the wall. I am predicting that it will be another incredible game.

Less aggressive, less confident - Wawrinka assesses the difference in Murray
Murray slipped 0-5 and triple break down in the final set, a harsh indicator of the sudden shift in the balance of power. He ended it, appropriately, with a backhand down the line, his 87th victor of the day, 51 more than Murray accumulated.

"We have to come back home", he said. He didn't do anything in Game 4 to warrant a suspension like a year ago when he hit James in the groin area when he stepped over the Warriors forward.

Part of what fueled that outburst was apparently smack talk by Draymond Green. But the officials said the scorer's table mistakenly gave a technical meant for Kerr to Green.

There remains much work to do for Cleveland, which still needs to beat Golden State three straight times, including twice in the insane environs of Oracle Arena, but at least they have a chance.

Game 4 is when things got personal. "I've won one on the road". Got to come out with some fire and get it done.

It's getting chippy: Now this felt like a Finals game.

Irving was sensational in both Game 3 and Game 4, totaling 78 points on 56 shots.

"It's going to be even tougher in game five", James said. With Kevin Durant taking control of a game as needed, the Warriors are hard to beat.

In Game 4, Cleveland looked like the team that rolled through the Eastern Conference playoffs, trouncing Indiana, Toronto and Boston by shooting 43.5 percent from behind the arc.

James scored 31 points and had 11 assists and 10 rebounds in Friday's victory. "We're ready to live in it". That was the second lowest in the series so far (12.4 for Game 1, 12.7 for Game 2, 13.4 for Game 3), which is normal as this is the first game this year to air on the low-trafficked Friday night. "We have to come out with some fire and try it get done."They couldn't do it in this same situation last year.Golden State brought a 3-1 lead back west but then took the floor without Green, who was suspended for accumulation of flagrant foul points, and couldn't stop LeBron James or Irving". "It causes too much stress man". But Irving's inconsistency keeps him from being mentioned as one the NBA's truly elite stars, and it could be Cleveland's undoing in this series.
