The Golden St Warriors are on the brink of their second straight NBA title as they take the 3-1 series lead after their 108-97 road victory in Game 4 against Cleveland as a +2 ½ point underdog. The total went under 207 ½ points and so far 3 of the four games have landed under. For the third time in this series the Cavs have been held to under 100 points. This time it was a second half collapse offensively for Cleveland in defeat as they were held to just 44 points that erased a five point halftime lead. LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and J.R. Smith played heavy minutes in Game 4 and media pundits are pointing to Cavaliers fatigue in the late stages that cost them the victory. Three point shooting was the biggest difference. Golden St made 17 of 36 from beyond the arc while the Cavs were just 6 of 25. Cleveland in the first two series had success making threes. A strategic change might be in order now as many were criticizing LeBron James for not being aggressive enough as he settled for outside jumpers instead of using his size and strength and going to the hole for higher percentage shots or drawing fouls to attempt more than the four free throws he took in Game 4. It was bound to happen sooner or later as both Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson together found their touch in Game 4 as they combined for 63 points, 16 of 17 from the free throw line and 11 of 22 from three point distance.
