In Game 4, the Cleveland Cavaliers came out strong, scoring 49 points in the first quarter (an NBA Finals record), and 86 points in the first half (also an NBA Finals record). They ended up staving off a sweep, as they forced a Game 5 in Oakland, sending the series back to that dreaded, much discussed 3-1 mark.

Can the Warriors win out at home tonight? Can they stake their claim as one of the best teams in NBA history? Can they win their second title in three years, but their first title won on their home court?
