>> mike: curry, 32. thompson, his first 20-point game of the finals. and a three-point record by the team with 17, most threes in a finals game. curry, 7. thompson, 4. cleveland was down by two heading into the fourth. they took a two-point lead in the fourth, and then the golden state defense just shut them down. a smothering defensive performance. james, drives inside. lay-up is good. and now, steve kerr will use a time-out, with 45.7 remaining, and a seven-point game. at what point, with 45 seconds, and out of time-outs, is it a matter, if you don't get a steal, foul, and make them hit
free throws? >> mark: you want to be aggressive, disrupt them, get steals, and at some point, you have to stop the clock by fouling. >> mike: and they have a foul to give. i don't know if that works against them at this point. still 45.7 seconds, but a key is, they're out of time-outs. >> mark: give this warriors team a lot of credit. after the performance in game three, underrated toughness, proven winners. didn't fold the tent, they drew together. this is a big, big win for these guys. >> mike: the three-pointer, huge. 17 threes to 6. >> jeff: you need to get the ball to green and livingston. i would have an extra defender up, and be on the ball. >> mike: they throw it back to livingston. there's the foul to give. james commits the foul, his
fourth. will inbound once again. second foul in the last 2:00, puts you at the free-throw line. nervous fans here. this place was rocking when they were up eight in the third. iguodala, good ball denial, has to call time-out. now golden state is out of time-outs. james and curry, having words. >> jeff: it was about how much contact was being allowed from steph curry's standpoint, when he's trying to get open. late in the game, it's anything goes. >> mike: certainly plenty of contact. that's what curry objected, and said something to the official. and lebron james let him know what he thought about the complaint.
there's been some harsh talk in the fourth. first, james and green. then james and curry. the look at mike callahan's face. >> mark: like that nosey neighbor. >> jeff: and golden state is out of time-outs as well. >> mike: thompson. a big man on the inbound. find thompson, immediately fouled by j.r. smith. klay thompson, who's 3 for 3 from the line will go to the line. with a seven-point lead, they can obviously just wrap this up at the free-throw line. welcome to the nba of 2016 and the warriors, fantastic shooting from three-point range. 36% from two-point range. >> jeff: they're only shooting 41% overall.
cleveland is outshooting them. it's the power of the three. and also, the missed free throws by the cavaliers. >> mike: and a big turnaround for golden state tonight. just nine turnovers, as jeff just mentioned, after turning it over 18 times in game three. thompson, now with 22. >> mark: if you're the cavs, you will look at the film of game three, and realize you didn't do the same things tonight. >> mike: 11 missed free throws for cleveland. no time-outs for the cavaliers. nine-point game. james steps back. green finds him. irving fakes, drives, gets to the basket, lay-up is good. that makes it seven. and curry is quickly fouled by frye. they need to shoot the threes at this point.
>> jeff: no question. >> mark: the reason why, because the warriors are so good shooting the free throw. >> mike: kevin love, playing 24 minutes off the bench. 11 points, 5 rebounds. cavaliers stalling in the fourth quarter on the offensive end. because of superb, aggressive defense from golden state. and curry, who came in the first three games, averaging just 16 a game in the finals, has 33. best free throw shooter in the nba during the regular season. the mvp found his rhythm tonight. lebron james drives in, left-handed lay-up. curry has it. just going to hold it. and channing frye bumps him out of bounds. what a bounceback performance from golden state.
as they will send the cavalier fans home quite sad. an agonizing defeat. eight-point lead in the third, place going crazy. irving, another big game. but golden state turns it around. remember in that western conference final, they were beaten badly two games in a row by okc, blown out. and then turned around, went home, and the huge game six victory on the road. another huge road victory tonight. >> mark: and being down 3-1 to okc, steve kerr doesn't have to preach that the series isn't over. because they just lived it, being down 3-1. >> mike: james, right at thompson. throws it down. thompson quickly fouled by richard jefferson, his fifth.
>> jeff: this is called padding your stats time right now. lay-ups, free throws. >> mike: so, golden state, with a gritty win tonight in game four. that's when the series turned last year as well. although, they were down 2-1, won game four, tied it up at two apiece, and won game five and six. they won the championship here at quicken loans arena, and have taken command of this year's finals in the same building. a dejected fan base here in cleveland. thompson connects. this will be the first home loss of the playoffs. as jefferson fouls curry. first home loss of the playoffs
for the cavaliers. they were 8-0, and 7 of the 8 by double figures, three of them by 30 points. tonight, they fall. tyronn lue with some work to do, as they get ready to go back to oakland. no team has ever come back from 3-1 in the finals. of course, the golden state warriors at oracle arena are so tough to beat. 39-2 during the regular season. and the fans at oracle have had a grand old time, watching on the big screen. and here in cleveland, starting to depart for home. curry will finish with 38 points. irving will dribble it out. and the golden state warriors
with a huge win on the road. take a commanding 3-1 lead in the nba finals. lebron james and the cavs now in a big hole, as they head back to oakland. james, one assist shy of a triple-double. irving, 34. but a heartbreaking loss to the cavaliers. as curry found his groove tonight. he's with doris. >> doris: steph, your head coach called you soft. green said you got punked. what was the most important thing about your response? >> the start of the game, we controlled the tempo in the first quarter. it wasn't perfect. or great basketball by any means. but on the road, gave youoursel a chance. that's the thing we have to do on the road. >> doris: you trailed by eight
in the second half, then the defense kicked in. what did you like from that end of the floor? >> a lot less breakdowns, protecting the three-point line, and just all-around communication, toughness, and effort. we still have to rebound better to close out the series. but we gave ourselves a chance with the effort on both ends. >> doris: the expectation was that you would find your rhythm at some point. what contributed to that? >> my faith in god, my teammates sticking with me. the work is not done. >> doris: what age do we live in when you make more threes an twos in an nba finals game? >> the other team did it a couple times down the stretch. it's part of it, you need to make them, have confidence. everybody making the shots they're supposed do.
>> doris: thank you, steph. >> thank you. >> doris: mike? >> mike: steve kerr said we can help him get going, but he has to play better. he did tonight. and a golden state win on the road. so, we'll head back to oakland for game five. the warriors with a chance to win their second straight championship on their them floor. they win it, 108-97. from all of us, mike breen saying thanks so much for watching abc, home of the nba finals. ♪ if you a champion show me you a champion ♪ >> the dubs looking for a repeat. going west for game five, y'all. monday at 9:00 p.m. eastern on
