NBA Finals, Game 4: Cavaliers hold onto hope

Galena Nuncio | 11 Junio, 2017, 23:50

A fan was asked to leave after engaging with a rarely used Warriors' reserve. Whether he was dribbling circles around the defense to get into the paint or pulling up from three, there was no shot he did not like in game 4.

Kyrie Irving and LeBron James unleashed one of the NBA's greatest scoring onslaughts Friday, powering Cleveland over Golden State 137-116 to doom the Warriors' bid for a ideal playoff run.

The Cavaliers are still alive and have a chance to do what no other team has ever done in the National Basketball Association playoffs - rally from a 3-0 deficit. "We set a lot of records since we kind of assembled this team the last couple years".

Huge blaze rips through London suburb as 70 firefighters tackle flames
Three people were rescued with a ladder, two were led to safety by crews and 25 were people evacuated this morning. Firefighters are still at the scene tackling the blaze and an investigation has been launched.

A ideal postseason run was right within the Warriors' grasp. At best they can tie the 2000-01 Lakers, who went 15-1, when beating the Philadelphia 76ers in five games in the Finals. He picked up a technical foul, his second in the two games here - and at one point it seemed he got a third after a mix-up between the referees and the official scorers, who mistakenly attributed an earlier technical on Steve Kerr to Green. While LeBron continued his dominance getting his ninth NBA Finals triple-double (31pts 11ast 10rebs), passing Magic Johnson for the most all-time. We shared the ball, we moved the ball and defensively we were physical. He was 1-for-6 on 3-pointers and is shooting 25 percent from beyond the arc in the series, the continuation of a steady slide downward since he made more than half of his 3-pointers in the opening round against Portland. It's nights like those when it's easy to see why James talks about one day handing the reigns over to the point guard as the team's best player. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 27 points on eight-of-24 shooting, making six of their 19 three-point shots. They have not been efficient in the first three games of this series, but last night everyone was on point. With all the other firepower they have offensively, the Warriors don't need Curry to go off for 40 or anything, but they will need him to recover his form from the first three games of this series. The Cavs took 22 free throws in the quarter but only made 14. Perhaps, the Warriors would prefer a more high scoring game.

Kevin Love added 23 points for Cleveland and J.R. Smith finished with 15 points. He made 10 of his first 12 shots, while Curry made only one of seven.

The Cavaliers scored 49 points in the first quarter, breaking an NBA Finals record for the most points scored in any quarter.

Claiming vindication, Trump answers Comey testimony with denials
The Russia investigations have consumed the White House and distracted the president and lawmakers from his governing agenda. He has shined a spotlight on the high cost - both to our democracy and our security - of Trump's constant litany of lies.

The third quarter featured a confusing sequence and a scramble on the floor that resulted in two technical, a friend of James being escorted from the arena and back and forth flurries worthy of a heavyweight boxing match.

The mishap was cleared in-game by the officials as Green stayed in the game, but most viewers and announcers were left puzzled at the decision, since it appeared that a first-half technical was indeed assessed to Green, not Kerr.

Clearly, basketball fans have not grown tired of watching the Warriors and Cavaliers go at it. Pachulia could have been tossed, but was only given a technical as was Shumpert. Get ready for all of the "Warriors blew a 3-1 lead" memes to emerge.
