This is why the Warriors need Kevin Durant

CLEVELAND — The only thing this NBA Finals was missing, besides a victory by someone other than the Warriors, was a sense of the surreal that had shrouded the two previous meetings between these two teams. We had already consumed the requisite blowouts and enjoyed one well-played epic, but the element of the bizarre that seems to accompany the Cavs and Warriors during this trilogy? No, we had not seen that yet.

Game 4 checked every box on the freak scale, from shaky officiating to hard fouls, cheap shots, trash talk, and even a fan ejection. Unlike Game 3, it was not a well-played affair, and unlike the first two games at Oracle, it was not a blowout in the traditional sense. Sure, the Cavs enjoyed a double-digit lead for most of the night, but it felt tenuous.

That’s what playing the Warriors will do for a lead, but Golden State did itself no favors by leaving a ton of points on the floor. The Dubs missed nine free throws and 28 threes, with many of them coming from quality looks. They’re not likely to shoot that poorly again, but the Cavs couldn’t have been expected to keep chucking up bricks either.
