VIDEO: Kyrie Drops 40 In Game 4, Cavs Set All Kinds of Records and Avoid Sweep

The Cavs came out with a “let it fly” mentality in Game 4 of the NBA Finals and boy did it ever work. Led by Kyrie Irving, the defending champions scored an NBA record 49 points in the first quarter alone and finished with a record 86 first half points. Uncle Drew had 28 at the half, which is the most in the first half of an NBA Finals game since Allen Iverson scored 30 against the Lakers in Game 1 back in 2001. The Cavs also hit an NBA Finals record 24 threes in Game 4.

LeBron James was his beastly self in this one, putting up another triple-double with 31 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists, setting the record for most NBA Finals triple-doubles with nine. The highlight of James big performance came when he threw down a self-alley-oop during the third quarter. Irving finished with 40 points on the night and the Cavs shocked the Dubs with a 137-116 win to avoid the sweep and hand the Warriors their first loss in over two months.
