2019 NBA Finals -- Game 4 preview: History favors Warriors

OAKLAND -- Banged up and missing bodies, and down 1-2 in this best-of-7 championship series, the Golden State Warriors, even without Kevin Durant and a hobbled Klay Thompson, have some favorable odds and numbers to look up to heading into this morning's Game 4.
The two-time defending champions are 13-6 in Game 4 of any playoffs series since 2015 and they are 31-25 all-time. The champs are also 3-1 in Game 4 of the NBA Finals since 2015, when they began their dynastic run.
Through the years, Golden State has shown its mettle in the postseason. This year, they are 4-1 in games following a loss. If those numbers won't tilt in their favor, maybe their experience will.
Shaun Livingston and Draymond Green have each played in 99 playoffs games. Klay Thompson has 120, Stephy Curry with 109 followed by Andre Iguodala's 101.
Photos: Oracle Arena is hosting another sellout in today's Game 4. Fans troop to the team store trying to score items that are 50 percent off including team jerseys.
Meanwhile, the Oracle Arena is expecting another sellout as fans' fears are heightened with their team's imminent departure to San Francisco next season. Should the Warriors lose this game and fall 1-3, it could be their last dance in this building because the Raptors can close them out in Game 5 at the Scotiabank in Toronto.
