With approximately 3 minutes left in the 4th quarter the Cleveland Cavaliers blew a 6 points lead against the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors went on an 11-0 run with the combination of Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry. Now leading the series 3-0 after a 118-113 win against the Cavs.  Warriors are now just one win away from creating history yet again. Can the Cavs win game 4 or will it be a clean sweep?

The intensity in this game was extremely insane. Lebron James and Kyrie Irving lead the way for the Cavs getting a 77 points together. Top three scorers for the Cavs were James (39 points), Irving (38 points) and Smith (16 points). Although getting just 9 points, Kevin Love had 6 steals and 13 rebounds. Leading the way for the Warriors were Kevin Durant (31 points), Stephen Curry (26 points) and Klay Thompson (30 points). These last two games Thompson surely came to the party, after being inconsistent at the playoffs stage, gotta to give him credit for that. The Cavaliers outscored the Warriors in the 2nd and 3rd quarters of the game, however they couldn’t hold on to the end.  On the night the Warriors bench put on 23 points for their team compared to the Cavs bench who put on 11 points.

The major key to the Warriors getting the win on the night was Kevin Durant who scored a 3-pointer with just some 45 seconds remaining. On the other end Kyrie attempted to get one in at the three point line with seconds remaining, but failed. 

Personally, I think Lebron James and Kyrie Irving’s fuel are running out. Can the Cavs cause an upset in game 4?  If so other players got to show up if they are going to even have a chance.

Game 4 of the NBA Finals continues on Friday 9th June 2017.
