Cavs Set an NBA Finals Record with 49 First Quarter Points to Start Game Four

Where did THAT come from?

The Cavaliers came out of the gate shooting like mad on Friday night in game four of their best-of-seven NBA Finals series against the Golden State Warriors, doing whatever they can to stay in the series down 3-0.

Just how great was their first 12 minutes of play? Historically good.

The Cavs scored a NBA Finals record 49 points, a record for any quarter in Finals history. They beat out of the 1984 Los Angeles Lakers, who scored 47 in the third quarter in a game of their Finals series against the Boston Celtics.

After one quarter, Cavs fans were liking what they were seeing, leading by 16 at 49-33.
