The Road to Larry O' Episode 9: Warriors Crumble in Game 4

Share

The Cavs set NBA Finals records for most points in a quarter, most points in a half, and most three-pointers made.

"He's just been very special in close-out games", teammate LeBron James said after Irving made seven three-pointers on 12 attempts to lead Cleveland.

SAN FRANCISCO-Kyrie Irving was close to morose mid-week, crushed by the loss the Cleveland Cavaliers had suffered in a pivotal Game 3 of the National Basketball Association final, a gut-wrenching and possibly season-ruining defeat that included his own missed three-pointer in the dying seconds. "Richard Jefferson bent over to talk to a sprawled Curry at one point, making you wonder if he mentioned Curry's classless squat on the court after Kevin Durant's killer three late in Game 3".

The Golden State Warriors would have a long night with only Kevin Durant (35 points) really providing any consistent production.

"We got to find our edge and respond", Warriors guard Stephen Curry said.

Throughout games 1-3, the Cavaliers relied heavily on Lebron to execute both offensively and defensively which made it much easier for the Warriors to defend. However, the Cavs put on a 3-point clinic in Game 4 to avoid a sweep and get the Warriors right where they want them, 3-1.

The Warriors couldn't make history in Game 4, and now they're going to try and prevent history from repeating itself.

They'll still have to earn it against a James-Irving combo that totaled 71 points in Game 4. Warriors star Stephen Curry shut down the chatter about whether that 3-1 lead stirs up anything from a year ago.

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. None. Zero. Zilch. Teams who find themselves down 3-0 in a best of seven series are 0-126 all-time in the NBA Playoffs.

"People can talk about it in historical context, but you just get it done, win the series and let everybody else talk". Following a masterful Cleveland performance, the 3-1 trolls have been given life and have returned from their hiding places. "You want to play extremely well and you understand that's a do-or-die game".

"We're relishing the challenge and welcome all challenges that we'll be faced with throughout the game". "Obviously we have haven't felt this feeling walking off the court with a loss in a while, but we've done a good job of bouncing back and being resilient all year". The only thing to hope for in game five is that both teams keep that feistiness and continue their great offensive play and we will be in for an epic game.

"(The physicality) benefited the Cavs tonight, for sure", coach Steve Kerr said.

"The procedure is to advise the table who the technical foul is on and with the player we give a number". The Cavs took a 6-0 lead in the first minute of the game with back-to-back threes from J.R Smith and Kyrie Irving and the Cavs would keep the lead the rest of the night.

"I can't foresee them coming to Oracle and hitting 24 threes", Green said. "I think it was we played a desperate team on their home floor, a great team, with great players, and they came out and handed it to us".

"And you give us a day in between and we were ready to come out".
