What We Learned From Game 4 Of The NBA Finals

What We Learned From Game 4 Of The NBA Finals

Weird, but it was good enough. Cleveland has done the latter to a limited extent, enjoying edges in rebounding (43.3-40.5), second-chance scoring (19.0-12.5) and paint points (46.0-39.0). They committed one turnover, that being a shot-clock violation.

"Just because we're going home, that doesn't mean we can relax or take things for granted", Warriors point guard Stephen Curry said. Eventually, they are going to do their thing. That Oklahoma City Thunder series is where the invincibility got exposed.

The 35-year-old Jefferson has been a steadying force on and off the floor this season for Cleveland, which signed him to a one-year contract last summer. "They brought their bench in, so I thought if we could keep our starters in for a few minutes, we could kind of make a run, and then, get guys out slowly, but they were able to go on the run".

But in the second half, Kerr gave the Cavs more death lineup than they could possibly handle, playing the rotation nine minutes - more than any other Warriors fivesome over that 24-minute span - and producing a Net Rating (the measure of how much you outscore your opponent over 100 possessions) of 76.5. It's hard to win when that happens.

Game 5 of the 2016 NBA Finals Series between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers is scheduled on June 13 at the Oracle Arena, Oakland, California. Thompson gets paid to rebound, and especially to clean up his teammates' mistakes. He was Lebron's own human punching bag.

Love left briefly, returned to the game but became dizzy and took himself out in the second half. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook couldn't beat the Warriors playing one-on-one, and neither can James and Irving.

So the drama around the Cavaliers certainly changed over 48 game minutes.

The Warriors hit a Finals record 17 three-pointers - to only six by the Cavaliers - and turned the tables on a Cleveland side that had dominated the offensive glass by rebounding everything when the outside shots finally stopped falling.

The Warriors had been struggling with slow starts, so the fourth-year forward scored eight of the team's first 10 points.

Curry had his best half of the series with 14 points as he and Klay Thompson combined for 25, but Golden State's biggest problem was playing great defense, forcing a awful Cleveland shot and then failing to get the rebound.

Love arrived at Quicken Loans Arena at about 7:15 p.m., roughly the same time coach Tyronn Lue was holding his pregame news conference. Tristan Thompson and J.R. Smith each had 10 points, but all in the first half. All three played every single minute of the third quarter. The rest of the fourth quarter plays out with little effect on the final outcome. "We checked the 3-point line and it was just all-around communication, toughness and effort".

Curry, who averaged 16 points in the first 3 games of the series, scored 13 points in 4th quarter.

Cavs Coach Ty Lue's message to his team after the loss was simple.

This series is over.

All of this has put the Warriors in position to clinch an National Basketball Association championship at home for the first time in franchise history and given them a shot at back-to-back crowns for the first time since the franchise's initial two seasons in Philadelphia (1947-48).

Cleveland had the campaign's fourth-best offense; Golden State's attack was historically efficient.
