Warriors beat Cavs in overtime in Game 1

  • Kevin Durant's performance in the Western Conference Finals was record-breaking

"I was trying to get enough to bring it out to get a shot off".

There were several calls down the stretch that angered James, with the biggest coming after James drove past Stephen Curry for a three-point play that put Cleveland up 104-102 with 50 seconds left.

Thursday's play set the basketball-watching world in a tailspin.

Some fans tried to point out that Smith's teammate Hill could've saved the game by making the free throw in the first place.

"For our team to come out and play their hearts out and compete the way we did, man, it's bad", said Lue. If the review is if he's on the line or if he's close to the charge circle, that's the review. I thought we were all aware of what was going on.

It seems as though this could be a year similar to 2015, where LeBron was a realistic candidate for Finals MVP despite the Cavaliers losing in six games. "We shuffled in different lineups, we shuffled in different players, we made a trade at the deadline, and I can't sit here right now and say that the Finals was a part of my thinking".

Of course, Game 1 was a classic, perhaps throwing salt on the theory people are bored with these two teams playing each other. After James, the Cavs' top scorer was Kevin Love with 21 points.

"He thought we were up one", Lue said. James has eight games with 40 or more points in these playoffs, matching Jerry West for the most such games in a single postseason.

There were also contentious moments in the final minute of overtime, first with Curry and James coming chest to chest and exchanging what appeared to be relatively friendly words. He said that James' accomplishment of doubling what he and the Warriors had done was "pretty special".

The game almost over, James jawed with both Curry and Klay Thompson, then Tristan Thompson and Draymond Green tangled moments later and made contact. "But I think it's worked out for us both in these four years so far since I've been back".

Smith butchered a golden chance to give Cleveland an unexpected 1-0 lead over the Golden State Warriors in the best-of-seven series all because he - inexplicably - didn't know the score.

Golden State's Stephen Curry scored 29 points as Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson scored 26 and 24 points respectively.

Draymond Green just missed a triple-double for the Warriors with 13 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists, five steals and two blocks.
