The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors set NBA records in the first half of Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
In the second half, officials lost control.
Tensions ran high in the third quarter of a must-win game for the Cavaliers, who trailed the Warriors 3-0 in the best-of-seven series.
Here's the rundown:
-LeBron James and Kevin Durant both drew technical fouls after jawing back and forth.

-Draymond Green appeared to be ejected from the game after picking up his second technical foul -- until we learned a technical foul originally assessed to Green in the first half was actually called on Warriors coach Steve Kerr.
Draymond Green was initially thought to be ejected. Now it's being reported Steve Kerr received one of the 2 issued technicals...what a mess pic.twitter.com/udXpw1syDD
