  • Thompson Steph Curry Kevin Durant and the true dawning of a historic 1-2 punch

Handed an unexpected lifeline, the Warriors went on to win Game 1 124-114 in overtime, despite LeBron James' 51 points-a career-high in the Finals for the three-time National Basketball Association champion.

"I don't know his state of mind".

"I guess the rule is you can review, you can review the call if it's inside or outside the restricted [area], that's the rule I know", Lue told the media after the 124-114 loss.

LeBron James remained the top scorer in the game with 51 points in the match but failed to script a win for Cleveland Cavaliers. And then tonight in the finals on the biggest stage, when our team played well, played our ass off, man, it ain't right. It was James' eighth 40-point game during this year's playoffs, tying him with Los Angeles Lakers Hall of Famer Jerry West (1965) for most in a single postseason.

"We've got to move on".

Of course, Game 1 was a classic, perhaps throwing salt on the theory people are bored with these two teams playing each other. What ensued was a comical sequence of Smith dribbling toward the scorers table at mid-court, then passing the ball too late for a teammate to do anything as James looked at him with his palms turned upward in the classic gesture that said, "What were you thinking?"

She reposted a tweet by Sara Gilbert , the actress who played her daughter, Darlene, on the show and served as executive producer. Earlier Wednesday, she attempted to explain that, "I'm not a racist , just an idiot who made a bad joke".

The game almost over, James jawed with both Curry and Klay Thompson, then Tristan Thompson and Draymond Green tangled moments later and made contact.

Durant made both foul shots to tie the game.

"There's still confusion about whether J.R. thought the game was tied or if he thought you guys were ahead", a reporter asked James in the post match press conference.

Curry scored a three-pointer as the Warriors opened up a one-point lead.

"It's unprofessional. I think it cost them the game", ESPN commentator and former Finals MVP Chauncey Billups said after the game of Smith's play. James also found time for eight rebounds and a team-high eight assists.

Curry finished with 29 points, Durant 26 and Thompson 24 for the Warriors, who have now beaten the Cavaliers in Game 1 four straight years in their historic stretch of consecutive duels in Finals.

Draymond Green flirted with a triple double by notching 13 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists.
