Cleveland Cavaliers Take A Win Against Warriors — Saturday Sports

Share

I wait all week to say time for sports. Is a Cleveland Cavaliers comeback possible? He had 11 points as Cleveland set an National Basketball Association final record by scoring 49 points in the first quarter, and contributed 17 in the second - the Cavs' 86-point first half was also a final record. Cleveland is now in the strategic position. Until this game, they were even, with 8 triple-doubles apiece, but now King James has one more.

Jeh Jeh Pruitt of WBRC FOX6 here in Birmingham joins us onstage Thanks so much for being with us, Jeh Jeh. "I'm having a great time right now".

SIMON: Cavs were on fire last night, weren't they? "We knew what we were faced with (being down 3-0)". But go ahead, yes. You can talk all you want but I'm definitely going to bark back.

Prior to Friday night, the Cavaliers had made 18 three-pointers thrice - against the Miami Heat, the Boston Celtics and the Warriors - and lost all three games.

Cleveland led 86-68 at halftime and were up by as many as 22. "But it doesn't go across.I don't have notifications on my phone".

SIMON: Yeah - LeBron James team. "This has been the best team in our league the last three years".

The Warriors signed Durant to a two-year, $55 million deal, and before the ink was dry they were an immediate favorite to beat the Cavs in the Finals.

The author of The Shot came to the post-game press conference and talked of hearing "chatter" in the Warriors locker room about how they wanted to clinch the series in Cleveland. They hit their 3 Pointers. And here is another telling number: The Cavs took 90 shots to score 113 points.

That comment from Thompson seemed to spark a fire inside LeBron that hadn't yet been seen in the series and his teammates followed suit. Let me get my money's worth if I'm gonna get some techs.

On Thursday, Green, whose suspension from last year's Game 5 for hitting James in the groin helped swing the series to Cleveland, said he was looking forward to celebrating on Cleveland's home floor for the second time in three years. "I'll be sitting up here lying saying that I didn't see it". If the Cavs win the next one, then Irving will have about a billion memes to choose from.

Asked about the weight of trying for playoff perfection, Kerr said, "I don't think there was any concern or thoughts about history".

You'd think the Warriors had learned from it and moved on, or better yet, had grown up.

PRUITT: Now, I'm not taking anything away from the Cavs because the Cavs. They were going to do everything they could to win, and they did. "They were phenomenal. Both guys played tremendous games, really did some awesome things - one-on-one, making shots - and then they got a lot of contributions from others, too". They did what they were supposed to do.

Two former MVPs, one on the brink of his first National Basketball Association championship, one trying to avoid being swept out of the Finals, were hit with technical fouls. James made the disclosure in a production for his online platform for athletes, Uninterrupted, in which he, Warriors star F Draymond Green, rapper 2 Chainz, and James' inner circle sat around at a barbershop during All-Star weekend in New Orleans.

The Rematch continues with the NBA Finals Game 5 on Monday at 9pm on ABC. Call them names. Write them off. "Obviously, I can play better and want to play better and will play better". We're in the middle of offseason.

"Sixteen and one sounds pretty damn good anyway", Thompson said. That's the team they have been all season, is knocking down deep shots and hard shots as well.

PRUITT: Yeah, the Auburn Tigers (laughter). Maybe he will. I don't know.

"I said that over and over again, that he's always been built for the biggest moments, and (Friday) he showed that once again", James said.

SIMON: How do things look for Auburn? This isn't last year, and at this point, there isn't a need to revisit last year. "We have to do a better job of that". And, of course, they didn't - they couldn't adjust to it.

But they never got closer. In Game 4 however, the rest of the players on the team realize their roles and executed leading to a win.

PRUITT: Yes. Yes, because they're doing everything they can. James had two foul shots with 2.9 seconds left and missed one, otherwise Cleveland would've hung 50 on the Warriors. It was like a clinic, the way that they played.
