Cleveland Cavaliers Stellar Performance

Lebron James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love were at their best form in the NBA Finals Game 4. Lebron scored 31 points with 10 rebounds and 11 assists while Love made 23 points. The biggest contributor is Irving with a massive 40 points. It was truly a great way to redeem their team from such a disappointing zero win.

Double Team

The Cavaliers made an effort to guard Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant with their double teams.  Looks like they listened to their supporters’ advice who insisted that they need to prevent the GSW superstars from scoring if they want to win. The strategy proved to be effective since they were able to slow down Curry who contributed only 14 points from his previous 26 points in Game 3. Although, the unstoppable Durant still managed to come up with 35 points and interestingly, Draymond Green got 16 points.

Technical Fouls Left and Right

The wild third quarter of the game is full of controversy. Many Golden State fans tweeted about the unfair treatment of the referees. There were hard fouls and technical fouls called on both teams. Draymond Green almost got ejected over 2 technical fouls. It can be recalled that last season, Green was given a one game suspension over the infamous Game 4 foul.

Fellow Warrior Zaza Pachulia threw a punch at Cavaliers’ Iman Shumpert’s groin that led to a short scuffle. Both players received a technical foul and this incident is still under review according to sources.

Kevin Durant and LeBron James were no exceptions in the third quarter squabbles. Their trash talking also earned each of them with technical fouls.

What’s Next?

Game 4 is absolutely the most intense game in the NBA Finals 2017. This makes more supporters eager to watch Game 5 scheduled on June 13 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland.

Many are wondering, “will the Cleveland Cavaliers be able to sustain their prowess in their upcoming game or will the Golden State Warriors reclaim their glory?” Fans can only wait and see.
