Cleveland Avoids Sweep; takes Game 4 at home 137-116 and lives another day

Safe to say that Gold State star Draymond Green will mostly likely find a way to complain about how shiny the Championship Trophy is when the Gold State Warriors win the 2017 NBA Championship. But for now, he will have to wait at least one more game to do so. What a night of constant chirping on just about every whistle from Golden State, who could not outlast Cleveland on the offensive end for the first time in this long awaited match up for the NBA’s ultimate prize.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are back on track, or at least they appeared to be last night. Right off the bat they came out firing and finished the first quarter with a whopping 49 points; setting a NBA playoff record for most points ever in an opening quarter. In the end, that first quarter was the difference maker as it would be too large of a gap to overcome for the Warriors. Kevin Durant filled it up with 35 points, but the star-studded line up of Green, Klay Thompson, and Stephen Curry added only 16, 13, and 14 points respectively as the Warriors tallied a series low 116 points.

Of course with Cleveland coming back from a 3-1 deficit in last years finals, many Cavs fans and even a few Golden State fans may be getting a little excited about the possibilities of a competitive championship series after a historically lack-luster NBA post season.

By no means will it be an impossible feat for the Cavs to come back from 3-0, but this years Golden State team is a whole other monster compared to last years. With the addition of Durant, the Warriors can not be stopped, they can just be contained for brief periods of time. Cleveland’s offense overpowered Golden State last night, but if the Cavs  have just a few poor offensive sets late in game 5, they do not stand a chance.

Gold State gets to complain about more calls this Monday, June 12th at 9:00pm on ABC. Lets see if they can close it out or if LeBron and company can push the envelope and advance the series.
