CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cavaliers and Warriors head into tonight’s Game 4 of the NBA Finals battling ailments. The Cavaliers lead the series 2-1.

Cleveland’s Matthew Dellavedova (dehl-ah-veh-DOH’-vah) and Iman Shumpert are expected to play. Dellavedova will be watched closely after being hospitalized for cramps and dehydration following Tuesday’s Game 3 win. Shumpert has a bruised left shoulder suffered in Game 3, but has no structural damage.

Cavs star LeBron James has been carrying team, with a record 123 points scored in the first three games of the series. James appeared to be exhausted during a media availability yesterday, but hasn’t shown any signs on the court.

Golden State’s Draymond Green is battling back spasms, but is also expected to be available.

The Warriors have lost the last two games, but haven’t lost three in a row all season.

You can hear game 4 of the NBA Finals tonight on KPUG 1170AM. Tip-off is at 6:00pm
