More Record Breaking Numbers For The Warriors
June 11, 2016 in Sports News
The NBA Finals fourth game, 97-108 Golden State wins in Cleveland and sets a 3-1 The 34 points from Irving are useless, or LeBron remarkable game or the return of Love, nothing helped the Cleveland squad. Golden State only lost 8 balls in the match and was very superior from the triple: 17 with 47% accuracy compared to 6 with 24% of Cleveland. This was a key element. The other element was the defensive improvement of the Californians in the second half. Crucial.
After a very close game an exhausted Cleveland came late in the game. A three pointer by Harrison Barnes at 5:56 put the final 84-93 after a partial 14-3 for the Warriors, with the beginning of the end of the local team.
Grand finale, Golden State sank great performances from Kyrie Irving (34 points and 3 steals) and LeBron James (25 points, 13 rebounds and 9 assists, but again many losses: 7). He played no less than 46 minutes. Tristan Thompson and J.R. Smith went from more to less and Kevin Love, who left the bench, was the only effective player in the second unit, but Tyronn Lue forgot him in the decisive stretch.
A stretch that was merely a claim for the Splash Brothers free throws, which did not fail. Curry and Thompson added up so far 28 points per game. Today they made 63 and won the ring virtually. Curry, sublime. He reached 24 points in the second half and was expected MVP, which until the fourth game was nowhere to be found.
Another record for the Warriors.This time, from the triple. As expected, because Golden State became the team that gets more triples in a Finals game. With 17 scored the team broke the record of the San Antonio Spurs.
The record of the Texans was at 16 and dating from the end of 2013, specifically was achieved on June 11, 2013. Warriors scored in the fourth game against Cavaliers 17 with a remarkable 47.2% effectiveness (17 of 36). And those 17 successes came from 4 players.
Spectacular Stephen Curry with 7 triples of 13 attempts. In addition, 4 triples from Harrison Barnes, and another 4 of Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala with 2.
