Warriors still in control, but wary of Cavaliers

As it stands though, the Warriors are just one win away from another NBA Championship and I just don't see the Cavs being able to beat the Warriors at the Oracle Arena where they lost by a combined 41 points in the first two games of the NBA Finals. But it's not as if this Cleveland team isn't already well versed in overcoming exceedingly huge odds. But now they have to do it three more times. I feel better than I've ever felt emotionally.

The magnitude of the setback "hit me in a very deep place", he said, a blow that would be hard for many others to overcome. A big factor in this series was the problem of LeBron having to exert too much energy chasing Kevin Durant around on defense. I'm stressed out. Keep doing this every year. We have to come out with some fire and try it get done. The Warriors have championship DNA and we do as well.

"Believeland is not going to give up, and we're going to keep fighting", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.

Pakistan's warm-up game against Aussies washed out
The much-awaited mother of all clashes between archrivals India and Pakistan will take place on June 4 . Karthik 94 off 77 balls before retiring against Bangladesh in the second warm-up game.

"So it's all things that happen bad aren't that bad, when you take a step back and look at them".

"I didn't hear it, but some of the other guys heard it and told me that they wanted to celebrate on our floor once again and they wanted to spray champagne in our locker rooms", James said. The key is can the role players take the confidence they gained in Game 4 and contribute in the same way in a hostile environment on the road? They nailed 13 more 3-pointers than the Warriors.

Zaza Pachulia, an overlooked beast in the minutes he was on the court in the first three games was manhandled by Tristan Thompson, who couldn't do the same in the first three games. They could rely on a turnover-prone team that lapses in concentration, an overamped Draymond Green in foul trouble, the same lax rotations, and what they truly need to see to win the series, a passive Stephen Curry. The 3-point shot, a precious weapon all season yet dormant for much of The Finals, returned with a vengeance; the Cavs set another Finals record with 24 makes in 45 attempts. Just that for one game, the Cavs found another level. He's not as flashy as some, not as quick as others, not as big as a few, but there is no denying his creativity when it comes to finishing at the basket with either hand, and his shooting stroke when he gets on a roll. Their defence, so tight in the first two games and still strong in the third, was no where close in Game 4.

Scooter Gennett makes Major League Baseball history with 5 hit, 4-homer game
In all likelihood, this will be the greatest (baseball) moment of Gennett's career . "He nearly beat us by himself tonight". Gennett's highest home run total came last season, when he hit 14 home runs over 136 games with the Milwaukee Brewers .

For the second straight game, this duo was more than a handful, LeBron getting his record ninth Finals triple-double and Kyrie jitterbugging his way to 40 points. The comeback Cavaliers are at it again.

James said his teammates were upset by comments made by fiery Warriors forward Draymond Green. "Started slow, we had some turnovers early, couple careless ones". Curry got it going with a mid-range shot to begin the scoring for the Warriors. "It was just one of those nights".

The Cavs scored a Finals record 86 points in the first half and then held on during a wild third and fourth quarter that included technical fouls, James jawing with fellow superstar Kevin Durant and Cleveland's crowd roaring like a jet engine. "It's just fun", he said, "and I felt better". There's no - you can't - we were just playing in the moment. "How can we play physical with some of the stuff going on out there tonight?" The reason we didn't hit 50 is because I can't shoot a free throw. "I'm pretty sure Draymond won't be suspended for Game 5".
