NBA Finals Game 4 Tonight

Game 4 of the NBA Finals is on tap for tonight in Cleveland, as the Cavaliers try to build on their increasing momentum after taking the last two games from the Golden State Warriors for a 2-1 series lead. The Cavs, heavy underdogs coming into the series, dropped Game 1 in overtime and lost All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving in the process. They’ve since relied on LeBron James and a cast of unsung role players, which includes a new starting backcourt of Matthew Dellavedova and Iman Shumpert, who are ready to go tonight despite battling severe dehydration and a shoulder injury, respectively. The Warriors haven’t lost three games in a row all
season and hope a fourth-quarter surge from Game 3 on Tuesday will carry into tonight.
