Steph Curry Latest To Succumb To Finals

The pressure is definitely intense during the NBA Finals, and it has been wearing down key players on both teams. Steph Curry is the latest victim of the moment, suffering from dehydration last night following Golden State’s win. The victory puts them within one of their first NBA Championship since 1975.

Steve Kerr called a timeout just over two minutes in when his change in the starting lineup didn't provide instant success. Shortly thereafter, the Golden State Warriors found the pace they wanted. And with two of the potentially final three games at rocking Oracle Arena, they've regained the upper hand in the NBA Finals too. Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala scored 22 points apiece and the Warriors routed the Cleveland Cavaliers 103-82 in Game 4 on Thursday night. Kerr elected to insert his super-small lineup to start the game, taking out Andrew Bogut in favor of Iguodala and beginning with the 6-foot-7 Draymond Green at center. Iguodala responded by not only continuing to play stellar defense on LeBron James, who was limited to 20 points on 7-of-22 shooting, but he also posted a season-high point total. Game 5 is slated for Sunday night in Oakland, where the Warriors have dropped just four games all season -- including the postseason. One of those defeats, though, came against Cleveland in Game 2. James, averaging 41 points, 12 rebounds and 8.3 assists over the first three games in the series, was two assists shy of a triple-double. He pulled down 12 rebounds and didn't score in the fourth quarter. James played with a cut on the right side of his head after diving into a camera late in the first half following a hard foul along the baseline by Bogut. Cleveland shot 33 percent (29-of-88) from the floor and made just 4-of-27 from beyond the arc.

Local anchormen are some of the more interesting people on television. For the most part they're in small markets and are able to get away with a lot of funny things.

 

Mark Johnson of WEWS News Channel 5 decided to talk a little about the Cavaliers' Game 4 lost before continuing with the weather report. Apparently he needed a weed wacker and a cement block to help him describe certain points in the game.
