Warriors at Cavs Game 4 halftime score: Golden State trails 55-50

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The Golden State Warriors found themselves down 55-50 at halftime against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4 of the 2016 NBA Finals, but things weren't nearly as bad as they looked in Game 3 at half.

Stephen Curry led the scoring charge for the Warriors with 14 points and a game-high 4 assists but the Warriors once again went cold and enabled the Cavs to take a lead. Offensive rebounding once again played a huge role for a Warriors opponent as the Cavs finished the half with a 17-5 advantage in second chance points. But the Warriors also struggled to score in the second quarter, shooting just 33.3% from the field while Kyrie Irving had 7 of his team-high 16 points for Cleveland.

In the first quarter, the Warriors shot 56.3% and led 29-28. Harrison Barnes was a pleasant surprise with 8 points, including two early threes while Stephen Curry also had 8 points. Neither team really established a clear advantage in the first quarter, but seeing Barnes and Curry getting going was an encouraging sign. But the Cavs had a 50% offensive rebounding percentage and converted those into a 13-3 second chance points advantage.

The Warriors certainly have their work cut out for them, but it's not quite as bad as Game 3...maybe?
