Updated: 

The Cleveland Cavaliers needed to make a fast start against the Golden State Warriors and they did.

The Defending champion Cavaliers scored 49 points in the first quarter of Friday's game four in Cleveland - the most points in any quarter in NBA Finals history.

Trailing 3-0 in the series and with their backs against the wall, Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving and LeBron James stunned the sloppy Warriors, who found themselves down 49-33 heading into the second quarter.

Love led the way with 14 points for the Cavs and he was aided by Irving's 11 and eight points from James.
