The Cleveland Cavaliers looked tired at various point of Game 4. Cavs coach David Blatt seems to agree.
At this post game press conference, Blatt was asked if his players were tired and if it was having an impact on the Cavs' play. He also noted that the Cavs are now in a three-game series for the NBA Finals.
"It was our third game in five days. It seemed to have an impact on us," he said.

Coach Blatt: "We're in a 3-game series for the NBA Finals. Six months ago, I wouldn't have bought that."— SLAM Magazine (@SLAMonline) June 12, 2015
There's some truth to Blatt's statement, as only seven Cavs played double-digit minutes - Kendrick Perkins, Joe Harris and Mike Miler only played in garbage time - and every Cavs starter played more than 30 minutes.
The Cavs lost Game 4 to the Warriors 103-82 and the series is now tied 2-2. Game 5 is Sunday at 8 p.m. in Oakland.
