NBA Finals Game 4 Gamethread - Warriors vs. Cavaliers

Game 4: Thursday, June 11 at Cleveland, 9 p.m. ET (ABC)

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Like it or not (and I don't) LeBron James and the Cavs are in control of this series thus far.

LeBron James is dominating the Warriors with his mind -

For all of the brute force LeBron brings, for all of the physical pounding he laid on Harrison Barnes and Andre Iguodala in the post, the lightning quick first steps he whipped on Draymond Green, the flat-out inhuman burst he showed on that spectacular alley-oop -- for all of that graphic physiological domination he exudes, his most powerful weapon remains his brain.

That's not to say that Stephen Curry and company can't figure things out and turn the tide.  But that's what I thought leading up to game 3 and it didn't work out so well for the Splash Brothers.

Can LeBron and his ragtag bunch of role players continue to win scrappy games on defense and a whole lot of LeBron usage rates?  Or can the Warriors figure things out in time?  Watch and see.
