National Basketball Association 'reviewing several incidents' from Game 4

Cleveland also hit 24 3-pointers, setting an NBA Finals record.

James finished with 31 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists and on one trip threw the ball off the backboard to himself for a dunk.

SAN FRANCISCO-Kyrie Irving was close to morose mid-week, crushed by the loss the Cleveland Cavaliers had suffered in a pivotal Game 3 of the National Basketball Association final, a gut-wrenching and possibly season-ruining defeat that included his own missed three-pointer in the dying seconds. "Glad that we got the monkey off our back in terms of just getting one win in this series in terms of going against this great team". "We got to continue to move the ball, share the ball", James said. "I doubt that they will be able to win it but if they do what they did last night I think they can win a Game 5", a Cavaliers fan said.

Same place as previous year: Warriors up 3-1, NBA Finals go westBy BRIAN MAHONEY, AP Basketball WriterCLEVELAND (AP) - The celebrating after Game 4 was done by Cavaliers fans, not Golden State players, their families or anyone else dressed in blue and gold who came looking for a historic party."Cavs in 7!"

The Warriors of last June are not the Warriors of this June. At the end of the day, we want to just try to put ourselves in position to play another game, and we did that and hopefully we can do it Monday night where we can come back here.

Just like past year, the NBA Finals are at 3-1 after four games.

At one point, it was announced that Golden State's Draymond Green had been given his second technical foul and security came onto the floor to usher the volatile forward to the locker room. James rested for the first 97 seconds of the fourth quarter but two quick Warriors' 3-pointers hastened his return as Golden State surged within 115-104. "We knew that we weren't going to keep them quiet from the three-point line the whole series".


What does it take to beat Golden State? "But we'll go tee it up again".

The game plan worked like a charm as the Warriors were a frustrated bunch for most of the night, with players and coach Steve Kerr contesting calls from the officials, who at times seemed to lose control of the game. Maybe he will, I don't know.

The Warriors are no longer unbeaten in the playoffs, but James said they still have the Cavaliers where they want them.

Now, for the next three days, until Game 5 starts at 9 p.m. eastern on Monday, the Warriors are going to have to hear about leading a Finals 3-1. "But you got to give them credit, they played extremely well tonight". James and Golden State's Andre Iguodala jostled for space, and the referee had to step in to reset them.

The only finals team down 3-0 to force a seventh game was the 1951 New York Knicks. Wade obviously wasn't on the court playing, but James has had pretty good luck with Wade nearby over his career.

The Warriors' 68 points were the most by a trailing team at halftime in the last 20 seasons.

"I can't foresee them coming to Oracle and hitting 24 threes", Green said. Steph Curry had 14, Klay Thompson had 13, and Draymond Green had 16 points for the Warriors. But discount Irving at your peril, because he has the ability to take over a game. "He's been huge for our success the last three years, and they did a - they have done a great job of putting him in the game plan and neutralizing what he does best, and that's offensive rebound and giving us extra possessions", James said of Thompson afterwards.
