NBA Finals 2018 Game: Warriors vs. Cavaliers Game 4 TV Schedule and Predictions.
NBA Finals Game Live : Over the first three games of the 2018 NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors have put into action what many believed before the start of the series.
Golden State is simply a better, more well-rounded team than the Cleveland Cavaliers, and it’s found a way to win in tight situations as well as in blowout fashion.
The 3-0 lead opened up by Steve Kerr’s team puts every ounce of pressure on LeBron James and the Eastern Conference champions to avoid the humiliation of a sweep.
While the Warriors aren’t expected to take their foot off the pedal in Game 4, they come into Quicken Loans Arena on Friday with enough of a buffer where they can afford to drop a game to the outmatched Cavaliers.

Cavaliers Pull It All Together and Win Game 4
Even with the lackluster supporting cast around him, James is not going to let the Warriors finish off an NBA Finals sweep in his home building.
On an individual level, James has been nothing short of fantastic in the NBA Finals, with his latest masterpiece being a Game 3 triple-double.
In order to give the Cavaliers a chance to win Game 4, James needs a scoring performance similar to the 51-point outing he had in Game 1.
In addition to making most of his shots, James must receive extra contributions from the players around him, whether it be Kevin Love, JR Smith, Rodney Hood or Kyle Korver.
Hood emerged as a solid player off the bench in Game 3, producing 15 points after receiving less than five minutes of playing time at Oracle Arena.
But even with Hood joining Love, Smith and James in double digits, it still left the Cavs eight points short of a victory.
With the way the Warriors are playing, the Cavs could have four 20-point scorers and still could lose.
Although there’s always the possibility for the Warriors to outshoot the Cavaliers, Tyronn Lue’s team will have the edge Friday night.
With Hood continuing his strong play from Game 3 and Smith knocking down a few timely three-point shots, the Cavaliers will force the series back to California.
