In Friday's fourth game of the NBA Finals, Stephen Curry (shown here trying to pressure Cleveland's Kevin Love) scored 38 points while Klay Thompson added 25 as the Golden State Warriors defeated the home-standing Cleveland Cavaliers 108-97 to take a three-games-to-one series lead.
Kyrie Irving paced the Cavaliers with 34 points while LeBron James added 25 (to go with his 13 rebounds).
The Warriors can lock up their second successive NBA title with a game-five home win in Oakland on Monday.
No team has ever come back from a 3-1 series deficit in the finals to win the NBA championship.
