Kyrie Irving scored 40 points and LeBron James added 31 as the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers spoiled Golden State's bid for a ideal playoff championship run Friday, downing the Warriors 137-116 in the NBA Finals.
They became the first team to triumph after falling into a 3-1 Finals deficit when they beat the Warriors in seven games past year. But history turned to infamy when they blew a 3-1 lead to the Cavaliers, the biggest collapse in NBA Finals history.
Golden State is on the verge of National Basketball Association history, attempting to become the first team to finish the playoffs undefeated.
James, who is averaging a triple-double in the 2017 Finals (32 points, 12.3 rebounds, 10.3 assists), and the Cavs edged the Warriors in Game 7 a year ago after falling behind 3-1, becoming the first team to ever overcome such a deficit in the Finals.

One day after Cleveland plunged into a 3-0 hole following a demoralizing 118-113 loss in Game 3, James said he didn't have a problem with Durant tilting the balance of power by joining forces with a star-studded that already had Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
Kevin Love made six three-pointers and added 23 points for Cleveland, who made 24 shots from beyond the arc - another Finals record.
After the bumper first half, the Cavs then held on during a wild third and fourth quarter that included technical fouls, James jawing with fellow superstar Kevin Durant and Cleveland's crowd roaring like a jet engine. "We missed shots. I gave everything that I had, so at times throughout the game, I was exhausted, but that's just because I was just playing as hard as I could". Should they go on and clinch the championship, Green can look back at the time he talked to Durant after Game 7 and think of it as one of the best decisions he's made as a professional, which is now paying dividends for the team. "That was my very next call", Green said. Durant's shot hit nothing but net, and the Warriors took a lead they would not relinquish. At every step, the Warriors have been better. Before the game, Kerr, who missed 11 playoff games because of back pain, said his decision to return to the bench for Game 2 in the Finals was easy.
Golden State clawed within seven, but then the Warriors began fouling and Kerr got nailed with his technical - one of seven in the game.
