The Latest on the NBA Finals from Game 4 (all times local):

11:30 p.m.

The Warriors have romped to their second straight NBA championship Youth Connor Williams Jersey , beating Cleveland 108-85 to finish a four-game sweep.

It’s the third title in four years for the Warriors and the second one they won in Quicken Loans Arena, where their 2015 title was secured. The Cavaliers won the rematch the next year but Golden State has handled them easily to finish the last two seasons.

Stephen Curry scored 37 points and Kevin Durant had 20 for the Warriors, who won their sixth NBA title to tie Chicago for third place behind Boston and the Lakers.

LeBron James checked out with 4:03 remaining in what could have been his final game in Cleveland, with fans chanting ”MVP! MVP!” as he went to the bench after congratulating some of the Warriors.



11:20 p.m.

Stephen Curry is up to 37 points and seven 3-pointers as the Warriors lead 102-76 with about 5 minutes left in Game 4.

Kevin Durant has a triple-double and needs a strong finish to continue his streak of scoring 25 or more in every NBA Finals game he’s played. He’s done so in all 13 games.

The Warriors are poised to finish off the first NBA Finals sweep since San Antonio in 2007 – a romp that also came at the expense of LeBron James and Cleveland.



11 p.m.

With one last third-quarter onslaught, the Warriors are up big heading to what could be the last 12 minutes of the NBA season.

They lead Game 4 of the NBA Finals 86-65 as they try to sweep their way to a second straight championship and third in four years.

Golden State outscored Cleveland 25-13 in the third quarter, the period when the Warriors either turned around or blew open so many games during their run to the NBA Finals.



10:55 p.m.

Another big third quarter for the Warriors has them headed toward the title.

Golden State leads 81-63 with about 3 1/2 minutes left in the period. It’s the largest lead of the game.

Stephen Curry leads the way with 25 points and Kevin Durant has 18.

Meanwhile, LeBron James has picked up a fourth foul while the Cavaliers try to stay close enough to make a comeback a possibility.



10:40 p.m.

ESPN has released a statement on Hall of Famer Hubie Brown and his condition after he got hurt before Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

Brown has been covering the series as an analyst on ESPN Radio.

The network says Brown ”was injured when he bumped his knee on a table during pregame. He’s in good spirits and being treated by the medical staff on site. He hopes to return to the ESPN Radio booth if there is a Game 5.”

The Warriors aren’t cooperating on that front: They’re up 11 in the third quarter, as they try to sweep Cleveland for the title.



10:20 p.m.

Golden State is one half away from a second straight NBA championship.

The Warriors have a 61-52 lead over Cleveland at halftime of Game 4. Golden State led by 11 in the first quarter, fell behind midway through the second, and went into the locker room with momentum after Stephen Curry made a 3-pointer in the closing seconds of the period.

Curry has bounced back from his struggles in Game 3 with 20 points Tim Heed Jersey , making four of the Warriors’ nine 3-pointers. Andre Iguodala has three off the bench.

Golden State is trying to celebrate on Cleveland’s home floor for the second time, having wrapped up its 2015 title at Quicken Loans Arena.

LeBron James has 16 points for Cleveland.



9:55 p.m.

Cleveland has battled back from an 11-point deficit to regain the lead in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

The Cavaliers went ahead 39-38 when LeBron James finished off a fast break with a basket midway through the second quarter. That gave him a game-high 13 points.

Golden State controlled the first quarter but the Cavaliers outscored the Warriors 14-4 to open the second.

Klay Thompson picked up a third foul for the Warriors and remained scoreless.:55 p.m.



9:40 p.m.

Stephen Curry had 12 points and the Golden State Warriors made six 3-pointers in taking a 34-25 lead after one quarter of Game 4.

Curry made two 3s after hitting only one in Game 3. He already had more points than in that 11-point outing.

Andre Iguodala also made a pair of 3-pointers after entering early when Klay Thompson went to the bench with two fouls.

Kevin Love scored nine points and LeBron James eight for the Cavaliers.



9:35 p.m.

Stephen Curry already has as many baskets in the first quarter of Game 4 as in all of Game 3.

Curry made his first three shots, including an off-balance 3-pointer when he was trying to draw a foul as he shot. His nine quick points sent the Warriors to a 13-3 lead.

He was only 3 for 16 in Game 3, including 1 for 10 behind the arc.

The Cavaliers surged back with eight straight points to cut it to two points midway through the period.



9:20 p.m.

ESPN Radio broadcaster and Basketball Hall of Famer Hubie Brown was injured shortly before Game 4 of the NBA Finals and was taken to a nearby hospital for an apparent knee injury.

The 84-year-old Brown was checked out by doctors in the arena, and will not be working the game as an analyst. There was no immediate word on the status or severity of his injury.

Brown is a two-time NBA coach of the year and two-time Emmy nominee who is working the finals for the 17th time as a radio and television analyst. His broadcasting career goes back to the 1980s, and he’s been with ABC and ESPN since 2004.



The Saints still are determining Marcus Davenport‘s role early in the season after he missed three weeks of training camp with a groin injury. The first-round draft pick played 15 snaps in last week’s preseason game, making three tackles, one for loss, and a half sack.

But Davenport remains behind, Saints defensive coordinator Dennis Allen said.

“I think that’s still to be determined http://www.officialsabres.com/authentic-adidas-jack-eichel-jersey ,” Allen said of Davenport’s role, via Josh Katzenstein of the Times-Picayune. “Certainly, we didn’t draft him just to be a situational pass rusher. We drafted this guy to be an every-down player, so that’s what we’re working to do, to try to get him ready to do that. We’ll continue to put him in those situations, and hopefully he’ll be ready to answer the challenge.”

Cameron Jordan will start at left defensive end, and Alex Okafor appears healthy enough to start at right defensive end. Trey Hendrickson also has earned playing time in the rotation, allowing Davenport time to get his feet underneath him.

Saints coach Sean Payton said Davenport will play a lot in Thursday’s preseason finale against the Rams after the rookie defensive end missed the first two exhibition games.
