LeBron James Had a Record-Setting Game 4 of the NBA Finals in These Nikes

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.
