Golden State Warriors dominate Cleveland Cavaliers 113-91

Thompson's lack of offensive production is hardly costly to the Warriors these days, given the presence of Kevin Durant now to act as Curry's running mate. Previously, teams throughout the league, including the Cavs, would pick their poison against the Warriors, opting to leave Green or players like Harrison Barnes or Andre Iguodala slightly more open in order to contain Curry and Thompson. The Warriors' brain thrust definitely has the edge in terms of experience and knowledge.

After the game, James was asked about the biggest difference between these Warriors and the 73-win team he overcame in last year's Finals.

The Golden State Warriors swept the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first game of the NBA Finals, but the real victor of the night was none other than noted basketball enthusiast, Rihanna.

In order to sign Durant to the maximum possible extension this offseason, starting at an estimated $35.4 million per year, the Warriors would have to renounce their rights to Iguodala and Livingston to create room under the salary cap.

Belgian David Goffin retires after on-court accident at French Open
There's something about the cloying clay of Roland Garros this year that's leaving players both wounded and distraught. David Goffin was forced to retire after injuring his right ankle.

"I don't even remember that", Durant said.

The pop star was front and center for the much anticipated showdown between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors, and she didn't shy away from routing for #TeamLeBron and heckling Durant in the process. During the press conference, Stephen Curry shook his head saying: "Don't get in that trap". If there is a basketball God -- and there may not be, considering how very bad the playoffs have been -- this feud will continue in Game 2 Sunday night. Irving added 24 points and 3 assist and Love chipped in with 15 points and 21 rebounds.

"You're not going to see insane celebrations, you're not going to see us getting ahead of ourselves". When you look at the numbers Curry and Golden State put up pre- and post-sleeve, it's probably safe to assume he won't wear it for Game 2. Rihanna is known to be a hard-core LeBron James fan. A video game simulation has them going the distance. To have a game like that when he's playing that way, it's tough to beat.

Of the 17 that picked the Warriors, two picked them to win in seven games, five picked them to win six, five picked them to win in five, and five picked them to win in four. If either one of them can get something going offensively, it could be another long night for the defending champs.
