LeBron James was asked if the Cleveland Cavaliers had hit the Golden State Warriors with their best shot after a gut-wrenching Game 3 loss; James said he didn't know.

Apparently the answer was no, they had not.

The Cavaliers scored an NBA Finals-record 86 points in the first half of Game 4 Friday night, hitting 13 three-pointers in front of a fired-up home crowd.

The Warriors scored 68 points, capped by a buzzer-beating three by Kevin Durant — and still trailed by 18 at halftime.

Kyrie Irving led the way with 28 points while James added 22 and Kevin Love 17 for the Cavs, who appeared determined to keep the Warriors from celebrating a championship on their court. Durant had 22 to lead Golden State.

The Cavs held on to spoil the Warriors' 15-0 postseason run with a 137-116 win and send the series back to the Bay down 3-1. Last year the Cavs trailed 3-1 before rallying to win the first title in Cleveland's history.
