The Cleveland Cavaliers have avoided a series sweep, beating Golden State Warriors 137-116 at home in game four to keep the NBA Finals alive.

Facing elimination at 3-0 down in the series, the Cavaliers jumped their opponents in the opening minutes, breaking out to a 16-5 lead.

The previously-unstoppable Warriors were down 49-33 at quarter-time, 86-68 at the half and 115-96 with one period to go.

The Cavaliers closed out the win comfortably, led by 40 points from Kyrie Irving and 31 from LeBron James.

Kevin Durant scored 35 for the Warriors, but it was not enough.

Game five will be held on Tuesday (AEST) in Oakland.

More to come.
