The veteran three-point assassin out of Creighton saved the Cavaliers’ season last night at Bankers Life Field House.
Kyle Korver showed up in the clutch in Game 4, drilling a three-point basket off of a Kevin Love feed to put the Cavaliers up 94-93.
Korver, James and the Cavaliers never looked back.
A few possessions later, Korver buried yet another three with less than two minutes and 30 seconds to go in the game.
Korver was the one-man turning point that the Cavaliers needed to get passed their third-quarter woes.
After a complicated month, tragically losing his brother Kirk, maybe Korver can be the spark that the Cavs need. He was the second-leading scorer last night for the Cavaliers, providing 18 points behind LeBron’s 32. Hopefully, as the playoffs progress, Korver could continue to be that deadeye shooter that can be relied on in games that matter most.
He’s playing great defense as well. Last night alone, Korver was chasing after loose balls and came up with two blocks and three rebounds. He was scrambling in transition and definitely earned the game ball in the road win.
Needless to say, in a must-win game for the Cavs, Korver showed up in the fourth quarter, just in enough time to save the Cavs season and tie the series with Indiana at two.
