Warriors have nothing to worry about, right?

Warriors have nothing to worry about, right?

No team in NBA history has recovered from a 3-0 deficit to win a best-of-seven series, but then again, no team in NBA history had recovered from a 3-1 deficit to win the NBA Finals until the Cleveland Cavaliers did it last year.

And lookie where we are again.

After a remarkable show of champion's resiliency in Game 4 on Friday night, handing the Golden State Warriors their first loss of the postseason, 137-116, behind a Finals record 24 3-pointers, the Cavs find themselves in the same spot as last year, heading to Oakland down 3-1.

The chances of Cleveland completing this comeback remain very slim; Vegas has the Warriors as 9-point favorites in Game 5. But with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving playing the way they've played the past two games, especially if the Cavs' shooting remains even close to as sharp as it was Friday, this thing coming back to Cleveland for Game 6 is within range. And if that happens -- whoa, baby, will some ghosts be stirring.

For much of this series, we have felt comfortable in saying it's not the same as last year, mostly because the Warriors were 15-0 in the playoffs with Kevin Durant this time around. But the Cavs still have a blueprint for beating them. With 71 combined points -- 40 for Kyrie and 31 for James, who finished with yet another triple double -- the Cavs' cornerstones were the best players on the floor in Game 4. When that's the case, they can beat Golden State. It was that simple last year, and it's that simple this year.

Remember, the Warriors barely pulled out Game 3. We were really close to this thing being tied at 2. Cleveland can play with, and beat, this team under the right conditions. And in one sudden shift, those conditions are starting to feel eerily similar to last year.

Think about it: Back in Cleveland, the Cavs look like an entirely different team than they did in the two opening blowouts, same as last year. Kyrie and LeBron start asserting themselves at home, same as last year. Look even deeper, at Steph Curry not playing up to par (14 points on 2-of-9 from 3-point range), at Draymond Green failing to control his emotions (picking up two techs only to have one mysteriously changed, thus avoiding an ejection), and is a faded memory starting to re-bloom?
