Cleveland Cavaliers top Golden State Warriors to stay alive in NBA finals

10 Juin 2017

For all this while, the Golden State Warriors refused to look too far ahead.

Friday night, the season could abruptly come to an end if the Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4 of the NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena at 9 p.m. ET (ABC). It would be a great piece of history. When I say his team, I mean it's not literally just his team ... "It wasn't a goal to start the postseason, but now that's it's attainable, we have our eyes set on it". "We're going to be ready to play on Friday". Led by Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal, the team lost only its finals opener to Philadelphia.

Golden State closed the game in Cleveland on an 11-0 run to win 118-113, with perhaps no basket bigger than Kevin Durant's transition three-pointer over Lebron James with 45 seconds left.

After the Warriors went up, Irving missed a 3 from his favorite spot on the right side and the Warriors closed it out with four free throws in the final 12.9 seconds before celebrating briefly on the floor and then charging down the hallway to their locker room.

That roster would give these Warriors a chance against any great team from the past - and gives most of their opponents no chance against them. "It's fresh in our minds", Thompson said. "The opportunity is to win it here so you want to take advantage of that and try to close it out as soon as you can".

"It's very impressive, though". James had no regrets about getting Korver that shot and he shouldn't.

But amid swirling rumors that there was serious interest between both parties last season, Draymond Green got things started nearly immediately after the season ended. How they get there remains to be seen. "We didn't let a call we didn't like or a turnover or a missed assignment linger over to the next play".

'Epic week': Hockey, country music collide in Nashville
Facing elimination in game six, the Predators defenseman insisted his team will play better in Nashville . The Penguins have goals from Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel in games three and four, that's it.

Warriors star forward Kevin Durant, seeking his first National Basketball Association title after leaving Oklahoma City for the Warriors last July, warned against complacency with the trophy so near.

And lookie where we are again.

"He took over", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. I mean, who am to say if it's fair or not? Teams that trail 0-3 are 0-126 in history. We're going to keep competing.

That's how Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue saw a historic offensive explosion from his Cavaliers team in route to a Game 4 win. "There is another level", Warriors reserve Andre Iguodala said. "There's really no excuse for us not to be playing well".

"I never been in this position before", said Durant, long accused of not being able to win the big game.

Cleveland nearly had this one, and they probably should have won. "It all comes down to this one game". You don't want to prolong the series and give a team more confidence.

We recently asked you to support our journalism. But we're not satisfied. Certainly, no team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit in the National Basketball Association playoffs - has any professional team done so in the post-season besides the 2004 Boston Red Sox? But yeah, there's a lot of factors that go into that, obviously. "I wish I could have a little bit more control over the reactions in certain situations. I'm always proud to represent my country". So 16-0 takes a backseat.
