The Golden State Warriors didn’t get the NBA Finals sweep they were hoping for against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
LeBron James and Kyrie Irving led the wire-to-wire NBA Finals Game 4 win over their Western Conference foe on Friday night at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.
For James, it was a record-setting night.
While wearing the Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 11, James became the all-time leader in NBA Finals triple-doubles in the fourth quarter with nine, passing basketball great Magic Johnson, who had eight in his career. In the 137-116 win, James scored 31 points, dished out 11 assists and grabbed 10 rebounds.
Irving, in a red and gold player’s edition of his Nike Kyrie 3 signature shoe, dropped 40 points in the win. The All-Star guard led all Cleveland scorers.
The Cavs’ first-half performance set the tone for Friday night’s game. Cleveland snagged a pair of team records, including the most points scored in a half in the NBA Finals with 86, and the most points in a Finals quarter with 49 in the first.
Also in the first quarter, James passed Michael Jordan in all-time NBA Finals scoring. James is now No. 3 on the list.
Stephen Curry, in a black and gold pair of his Under Armour Curry 4 sneakers, had a less-than-stellar performance for the Warriors in Game 4. The sharpshooter was held to 14 points, including shooting 2-of-9 from three-point range. Kevin Durant, in the Nike KD10, scored 35 points in the loss.
Game 5 of the NBA Finals is scheduled for Monday at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif. The TV broadcast will begin at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
