CLEVELAND, Ohio (ABC4 Utah) – The Cleveland Cavaliers pulled out a historic win against the Golden State Warriors Friday in front of a hometown crowd, 137-116.

The Cavaliers set an NBA Finals record with 24 three-pointers. They put up 86 points in the first half alone.

Kyrie Irving led the way with 40 points, while LeBron James set an NBA Finals record with his 9th triple-double, with 31 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. Kevin Love added 23 points for the Cavs.

“We have championship DNA as well,” said James. “We showed that tonight. We kept our composure, we were in attack mode, we shared the ball, we moved the ball, and defensively we were physical. We have to be that every single game. So, it’s one game. It’s going to be even tougher in game five, but we look forward to the challenge.

“It’s do or die and we understand that,” added Irving. “Obviously we heard their comments saying that it would be satisfying to celebrate on their home floor, and honestly we were ready to get on this 2 p.m. flight tomorrow back to San Fran and get ready for game five.”

The Warriors were led by Kevin Durant’s 35 points.

The Warriors went into Game 4 with a 3-0 lead in the series. Cleveland also brought an end to Golden State’s drive to become the first undefeated team in the NBA playoffs. The Warriors had won their first 15 games of the postseason.

This was Golden State’s second loss in their last 32 games going back to the regular season.

Game 5 in the series is Monday, June 12 at Oracle Arena in Oakland. You can watch the game on ABC4 Utah.
