NBA Finals Game 4 tonight: ‘We’re not gonna give in.’
Golden State Warriors take 3-0 lead in NBA Finals
08 June, 2018, 16:41
The continuation of course for the 110-102 primetime match-up comes from previous year when LeBron James and crew were also denied a victory by Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and the rest of the GSW in Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals after suffering two back-to-back losses. Stephen Curry was the Warriors' second-leading scorer, netting 11 points.
After the game, LeBron paid the ultimate respect to his rival by calling him "one of the best players I've ever played against that this league has ever seen". "I didn't want to run there and shoot a bad shot, fall on the ground and they got numbers going the other way so I made a decision to pull up". "So just get back to work tomorrow and figure out a better game plan".
"I thought we did some things tonight that we need to correct if we want to win next game".
"I tried to just stay in the zone", Durant said, acknowledging he was nervous the Cavs could still come back.
The Cavaliers claimed a 29-28 first quarter advantage. Even with Curry and Klay Thompson combining for one of the worst shooting performances of the Splash Brothers era, James tipped his hat to Golden State, saying that an off shooting night for Curry and Thompson was a luxury possessed by his four-time Finals opponent.
Durant had 13 points and seven rebounds to start the game.
Cleveland raced into a 16-4 lead in the first half, the highlight being James throwing a pass to himself off the backboard and finishing with a dunk.
By the time the first half ended with Cleveland up by six, the Warriors had chipped away at big Cavaliers leads twice, thanks mostly to Durant, who had 24 points in the half.
James admitted that the Warriors, who lead the series 3-0, are more talented than the Cavaliers. Golden State learned that in the series when they overcame James' 51-8-8 for an overtime win.
Then came the expected third quarter Warriors run - up-tempo play, some threes raining down, the layup line continued, and the Warriors had an 11-point third quarter lead at one point that shrunk to eight by the end of the quarter, but that was enough to have the Warriors up 83-81.
Durant was 4-for-4 on 3-pointers 30 feet and out. James said, noting the difficulty in his talk because "people who really don't know the game don't really know what I'm talking about". We have been pretty good [there] in the postseason. We have an opportunity to extend the series. We know throughout the course of a 48-minute game, there are going to be plays where it was miscue here or a miscue there.
These NBA Finals will, in all likelihood, end on Friday or Monday with the Warriors celebrating another championship.
