NBA Finals Game 1 Mini-Movie

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

LeBron James was a one-man team at times in Thursday's opening game in the best of seven NBA Finals.

Maybe Golden State Warriors fans have grown exhausted of seeing their team in the NBA Finals.

One of the reporters present at James' podium appearance appeared to want a clear answer from the four-time MVP on Smith's mindset, which resulted in James getting increasingly annoyed.

After the final seconds of the first National Basketball Association finals game featuring the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Golden State Warriers, the internet is going undefeated for roasting a star player.

In an incident during the game, James was also injured when Green poked him in the eye as he went hard to the rim, causing the Cavaliers forward to roll on the floor in pain.

"It was epic, and he did enough to carry this team to a victory", the coach said.

James' response was terse to say the least. That's who he is.

The Cavaliers' unraveling in the final seconds ended up wasting one of the best performances of James' career. Reason No. 1 didn't come as much of a surprise, with Gilbert stating that his team goes as LeBron James does.

"I knew we were tied I just thought we were going to call timeout after the rebound".

Trump renews China tariff threat, complicating talks
But on Wednesday, Trump reversed and signaled that he still planned to impose $ 50 million in tariffs on Chinese imports . Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross is scheduled to be in Beijing on June 2 to 4 for the latest round of negotiations.

Durant saw it a different way.

However, Smith contradicted Lue's comments as the Cavs guard insisted he knew the game was tied at Oracle Arena. If the review is if he's on the line or if he's close to the charge circle, that's the review. "I knew he was late on the drive and I knew I had my man beat and he came over a little late". When over at the table, we then are allowed to determine whether or not he was in a legal guarding position.

Do us all a favor and never change, J.R....

The clock ran out and the game went to overtime, where Golden State prevailed.

With the game tied at 106, James' side had the chance to win as J.R. Smith collected the rebound after George Hill missed his second free throw.

Instead of going right up with a shot, he retreated to the perimeter. Two free throws by Durant began the run. As for the ex-Jazzmen, Hill and Kyle Korver combined to make three 3-pointers, while Rodney Hood stayed on the bench.

Perhaps the most exciting part of overtime was the Draymond Green-Tristan Thompson scuffle, but even then, the win was secured for the Warriors at that point.

A team doesn't get many second chances against great teams in the playoffs. But it wasn't enough when Curry answered with a three-point play followed by Smith's miscue. Kevin Durant had 26 points and nine rebounds in the win. Love contributed a double-double with 21 points and 13 rebounds.
