No. 30 and No. 11 or often referred to as the Splash Brothers finally made their imprint on the 2016 NBA Finals and now the Golden State Warriors are headed back to Oakland with a 3-1 series lead and one win away from becoming back-to-back champs.

Stephen Curry scored 38 points, including seven 3-pointers, and Klay Thompson added 25 points, including four shots from beyond the arc, in a 108-97 victory over the Cavaliers in Cleveland.

After a much better start in the first quarter unlike Game 3, the Warriors nailed an NBA Finals record 17 3-pointers (36 attempts), while the Cavaliers made just six.

Despite Kyrie Irving dropping 34 points, including some tough finishes in the lane, Golden State played some solid defense in the second half to erase an eight-point deficit.

Curry, Thompson and Harrison Barnes (14 points with four 3-pointers) from a bunch of clean looks from deep due to defensive breakdowns by the Cavs.

LeBron James filled the stat sheet once again with 25 points, 13 rebounds, nine assists and three blocks but had a game-high seven turnovers and seemed set on making sure all of his teammates scored in double figures.

Tristan Thompson won the award for hustling in the first half but Anderson Varejao took the trophy after the break, giving the Warriors pivotal second looks at the basket.

Will the team with some of the best shooters ever and an NBA record 73 regular season wins be celebrating another historical moment on June 13?
