Everyone thought it was a sweep but it seems like we now have a series in the National Basketball Association 2017 finals.

Dwyane Wade to the rescue: LeBron James needed Dwyane Wade to beat the Warriors. The Cavaliers won that game to start what became the biggest comeback in NBA Finals history.Now they need the biggest ever in the NBA's postseason.No team has erased a 3-0 deficit in any series. Although the Warriors are still up 3-1 on the Cavs, there is no doubt that they have to be a little anxious after what happened last season.

"You hear some chatter going on throughout the Warriors locker room in terms of them trying to end it here, and it was another do-or-die game for us, and we had to leave it all out there", Irving said. The Warriors hit only 11 3-pointers from 39 attempts, while the Cavaliers had a ideal percentage 24 of 45. The Cavs leading 3-point shooter (totaled a team-high 177 in the regular season) was 7-of-12 from downtown in Game 4. The 86 points were the most in a half in NBA Finals history. It was later determined that Warriors coach Steve Kerr was tagged with the technical rather than Green.Kerr said he thought the first quarter technical foul was on Green."I thought I deserved it, Kerr said". We shared the ball, we moved the ball and defensively we were physical.

It's still a long shot, for they'll have to win two games at the Warriors' den. The crowd was extra loud, there were several early fouls called on the Golden State players that seemed to upset them and the Cavs hit 53% of their three-point attempts. Kevin Durant scored 35 points but Stephen Curry only scored 14 points on 4-of-13 shooting and Klay Thompson added 13. Then in what turned out to be one of the most raucous quarters in NBA Finals history, he picked up another one in the third quarter.

Only 16 million viewers tuned in during Wednesday's game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors for Game 3 based on early TV ratings data. Let's take a look at five reasons Cleveland can pull off the impossible and win the 2017 NBA Finals. Kyrie Irving was sensational again, hitting seven three-pointers and dumping in a game-high 40 points. He made 10 of his first 12 shots, while Curry made only one of seven.

The Cleveland Cavaliers scored 49 points in a half outscoring the Warriors by 16 points, the previous record was set by the Los Angeles Lakers by 47 against Boston in 1984. Or, in some circles, throwing down a dunk known as, "Dinner's served".

It was a testy Game 4 that saw Green in the midst of the ruffled feathers between the two teams, being assessed a second technical foul despite having only one infraction after clarity was reached by the refs.

A fan was ejected after engaging with Warriors reserve Matt Barnes. In the scrum, Pachulia appeared to kick Iman Shumpert - who was standing over him - once and punch him twice. They broke scoring records in a stunning 137-116 victory that shoved this "Three-match" between new-school rivals to the West Coast for Game 5 on Monday.

Even the jump ball that followed Pachulia's swipe didn't occur without incident.

James set two other records Friday.
