ESPN's Sarah Spain Breaks Down Game 1 of the NBA Finals

ESPN's Sarah Spain Breaks Down Game 1 of the NBA Finals

The highly anticipated meeting between the defending champion Cavaliers and the top-seeded Warriors did not disappoint initially, with sensational dunks by LeBron James and Durant during a see-sawing first quarter. "We didn't play as well as we know we're capable of, so we look forward to the next one".

"We were really, really good in that department at just being ourselves, playing Warriors basketball, knowing that there's a lot of talent out on the floor", said Curry, who had 28 points and 10 assists. It's going to be a tough game for us.

There's little doubt Cleveland can play better than it did in Game 1.

James and Kyrie Irving shot 19 for 42 between them but the sloppy ball handling allowed the Warriors to take almost as many shots - 106 - as they had points, and 20 more attempts than the Cavs' 86.

Just go play. And it worked splendidly for the two-time reigning MVP and Kevin Durant in their first Finals together. "We know that. They probably lost eight games over the course of three seasons". Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant dunks against the Cleveland Cavaliers during the first half of Game 1 of basketball's NBA Finals in Oakland, Calif., Thursday, June 1, 2017. But just wasn't feeling right, just kind of a split decision, just whatever, success or not, it doesn't really matter.The Golden State Warriors handed the Cleveland Cavaliers a 113-91 loss in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night, which led national columnists to praise the Warriors as "unstoppable" and lament the multitude of mistakes the Cavs committed."I think we played well", James said.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Stephen Curry spoke up, just in case his Golden State Warriors needed another reminder from their MVP and leader. It was no coincidence that a concussion suffered by Love, relegating him to a lesser role when he returned, allowed Cleveland to build a much stronger defense as the series progressed.

Since 1950, teams are 2-5 following such a result. When we're not making shots and they get off in transition off of rebounds and stuff like that, they're tough to guard. Just see who is going to draw attention, find the open guy and knock down open shots.

"I know we can play better, we will play better, but we've got to do a better job putting the ball in the basket". "That's when they become very risky because those guys, they sprint down the lane, they sprint to the 3-point line, they put a lot of pressure on your defense".

Ward (a Bay Area native) was Tweeting loud and proud for Golden State all night.

The Cavaliers committed 20 turnovers, many of them unforced errors, and the Warriors responded by converting those extra possessions into 21 points, including 11 markers off of eight Cleveland miscues in the second half. And, given that playing that way still seems to be the best chance Cleveland has of winning this series, that is a serious problem.
