Warriors' Shooters Break Out Of Slump To Tie NBA Finals, 2-2

Golden State Warriors guard Andre Iguodala outruns center Cleveland Cavaliers Timofey Mozgov to the hoop Thursday during Game 4 of the NBA Finals in Cleveland.

It took four games, but the Golden State Warriors' shooters finally got on track Thursday night, while Cleveland Cavaliers guard and surprise hero Matthew Dellavedova finally came back to reality.

The result was a relatively easy 103-82 win on the road for the Warriors, and an NBA Finals tied 2-2 as it heads back to Oakland, Calif.

League MVP Stephen Curry retained the hot hand he had at the end of Game 3, hitting four of seven three-point shots en route to 22 points.

Meanwhile Andre Iguodala — making his first start of the season in the Warriors hunt for some kind of solution to the Cavaliers' tactics — scored an efficient 22 points while applying his usual solid defense on Cleveland star LeBron James.

Center Andrew Bogut, whom Iguodala replaced in the starting lineup, logged just three minutes of playing time.

James got just 20 points for Cleveland after averaging more than 40 through the first three games, while center Timofey Mozgov piled up 28 points, including 10 from the free throw line.

Dellavedova, who had played played frantic but effective defense on Curry and averaged 14.5 points in the two games since point guard Kyrie Irving got hurt, scored 10 points on 3-14 shooting.

Game 5 will be 8 p.m. ET on Sunday in Oakland, Calif., Game 6 in Cleveland will be on Tuesday, and a Game 7 — if needed would be June 19. All will air on ABC.
