Warriors the only team to win with small lineup
By Anthony Caruso III
Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr took a huge gamble prior to Game 4. In fact, Kerr wouldn’t tell anyone about the change until tip off.
With the switch, the Warriors are the only team in NBA Finals to win a game with a starter 6’9″ or taller. Lineups were officially kept in 1970-1971.

Games 4 was the only time that they made the switch. With Andre Iguodala in the starting lineup, he would be a key factor in the Warriors blowout in Cleveland against the Cavaliers.
Kerr has not indicated whether Iggy will start again tonight. If not, Andrew Bogut will be back in the starting lineup.
