After dominating the Golden State Warriors with a wire-to-wire 137-116 victory in a must-win Game 4 of the NBA Finals, several Cleveland Cavaliers players said the Warriors’ “chatter” leading up to Friday fueled their performance.

In other words, Draymond Green’s mouth got Golden State in trouble again.

“You add, of course, some chatter in there, and that adds some extra motivation,” said Kyrie Irving after leading all scorers with 40 points. “And you give us a day in between, and we were ready to come out. Especially me, because that taste wouldn’t have been the same if we would have lost tonight and they would have celebrated on our home floor. So I’ll just leave that at that.”
