LeBron, Curry put on show, Game 1 tied at half

Kevin Love made a return for Cleveland after getting sidelined for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals against Boston and contributed 21 points, 13 boards, and one assist. Instead, this game's legacy is an overturned charge call late in regulation, Smith's gaffes, contradictory explanations from Cleveland and hot tempers in the final seconds.

His performance drew strong praise from Warriors coach Steve Kerr, who played alongside Jordan at the Chicago Bulls.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue's assessment?

The Warriors have not changed much from last season, and they're just as formidable as ever. "Durant is perceived as the No. 1 option and won it previous year, so it makes sense for him to be favored". Hood did drop 26 against Golden State on December 27 as a member of the Utah Jazz, for what it's worth. He will be re-evaluated again before Game 2 on Monday.

James wants the Cavs to put it behind them. "I thought we were going to take a timeout because I got the rebound". "This game is over and done with".

Let's be clear: The Warriors aren't here because of luck.

Despite the grueling series with the Rockets that went seven games, Warriors fans shouldn't worry about player's focus. But unfortunately for the Cavs, it won't be good enough on its own to get them another championship.

He was back in a few minutes. "It's awesome for the league to have tremendous star power on the biggest, brightest stage". "Just trying to figure out how to move in general".




Then came the final seconds of the first half, Cleveland having a foul to give.

After the game, Smith tried to explain his rationale, saying he knew the score was tied at 107, so he dribbled the ball out to either set up a better shot or get a timeout.

Steph Curry will win the NBA Finals MVP. Do I think he is one of the best players in this series? No.

From Cleveland's perspective, bad things. Either call a blocking foul or call an offensive foul.

"I read that play as well as I've read any play in my career, maybe in my life", James said.

James was well outside the area, and the Cavs didn't buy the explanation.

When James was asked specifically if it was good for the National Basketball Association to have the same two teams in the Finals four years in a row, he said, "You've got to ask Adam Silver". Next was George Hill missing a free throw that would have given the Cavs the lead with 4 seconds left. They get 3s and easy baskets. Overtime. Big break No. 4. "I don't know what was going through J.R.'s head". The home team left happy.

"We're playing a great team and it's the Finals".
