The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors locked horns in an explosive Game 4 on Friday, and Cleveland took the first step toward turning the highly anticipated NBA Finals “three-match” into a series worth the hype with a 137-116 victory to make the series 3-1.

[LeBron] James logged a triple-double — 31 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists — to overtake Magic Johnson for the most triple-doubles in Finals history, with nine. And with James’ first basket in the first quarter, he passed Michael Jordan for third on the all-time Finals scoring list.

Kyrie Irving led all scorers with 40 points on 15-for-27 shooting. Kevin Love pumped in 23 points. Tristan Thompson had nearly as many rebounds in Game 4 (10) as he had in Games 1-3 combined (11). JR Smith kept up his hot shooting from Game 3 with another strong night (15 points, including five 3s).

By the end, the Cavs set a record for most 3s in a Finals game, going 24-for-45 (53.3 percent). This after combining to go 31-for-104 on 3s in the first three games of the series.
