NBA Finals 2018 Game 4

NBA Finals 2018 Game 4

Golden State is on the cusp of another National Basketball Association championship, holding a 3-0 series lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers going into Game 4 of the finals.

Durant scored 43 points helping Golden State secure a 3 - 0 series lead over Cleveland.

To win any NBA Finals game, on the road, when LeBron James has a triple-double, when they trailed most of the night, when the deficit was as many as 13 early, when Curry and Thompson shot a combined 7 for 27 ... only a Superteam can pull that off.

But if the Cavaliers want James to remain with the wine and gold, they'll need to pour out everything in Game 4 and work their way up from there.

Smith finally made somewhat of an impact on the game, scoring 13 on 3-of-10 shooting from distance.

But the Warriors improved to 10-2 against the Cavaliers since Durant joined Golden State before last season. "The one he made tonight was about four or five feet behind the one he made a year ago".

At 434.5 million barrels, US crude oil inventories are in the lower half of the average range for this time of year. West Texas Intermediate and international-benchmark Brent crude oil futures are trading lower early Monday.

Iguodala has averaged 11.4 points in 18 past finals games - including a 20-point showing for Golden State in last year's title clincher against the Cavaliers. But third quarters have kind of been our Achilles heel all year.

Kerr was asked about Golden State's rotation and Jordan Bell's impact but the Warriors boss quickly turned the attention to 2017 Finals MVP Durant. Durant was the only Warrior to eclipse 11 points, as point guard Steph Curry shot 3 of 16 from the field and shooting guard Klay Thompson scored 10 just points. Obviously, things haven't gone great in Cleveland over the past year or so, but OH is James' home state and he was skewered the last time he left town.

"The margin of error is very low", James said following Cleveland's 110-102 loss.

The Cavs had every chance to win Game 1, but couldn't close the deal after a controversial overturned call, a missed free throw by George Hill, and a historic blunder by J.R. Smith. According to anyone who can do math, ABC has won the night yet again with the NBA Finals. But at the same time I knew the game wasn't over.

"He's one of the best players that I've ever played against that this league has ever seen", LeBron James said after Game 3. He's such a high-IQ type of guy that he'll most likely find himself in the right place at the right time and help our rotation get back to what we're consistently used to.

"I played with guys with that same type of intensity", Durant said, "but his talent and feel is different".
