Game 1 Preview Warriors vs. Cavaliers- 5/31/18

James now has a slight edge, with his 28.83 points per game placing him fourth and slightly ahead of Durant, who has averaged 28.75. His coach called it robbery.

LeBron James played brilliantly for the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, scoring 51 points, but it wasn't enough to ward off a painful 124-114 loss in overtime against the Golden State Warriors on Thursday.

"This is LeBron James", Lue said. I always live in the present.

"Honestly, I don't care if he plays or not", Golden State's Thompson said Friday before the fine was announced. Rather than being awarded the ball with a chance to extend to a two-possession lead, however, the call was overturned and deemed a block on James after a replay review. It's just what we do. Here's a look at the play where James was slapped in the eye by Green.

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

When asked whether Smith thought the Cavs were up or tied with the Warriors, LeBron's abrupt answer says it all: "How would I know that?" 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's just I thought we were going to take a timeout because I got the rebound".

LeBron James was captured by photographers looking frustrated after J.R. Smith's fumble.

"I know it was a tie game", he said in a postgame news conference. Now we've got to move on. We had opportunities. I would never give up on J.R. That's not my M.O.

Investers are concerned that the anti-austerity, eurosceptic 5 Star and League could increase their majority at the next election. But in the past week, the country's politics took on a new level of unpredictability.

LeBron just about put the team on his back and nearly carried his team to a massive upset in Game 1 but it's nearly as if the basketball gods were against him.

"I don't think none of us are demoralized", Hill said.

"The reason for the trigger is that we had doubt as to whether or not James was in the restricted area". Mind you, those were merely asking prices before the series began-and not necessarily what people will ultimately pay for them.

The Warriors seek their third title in four seasons and sixth overall. "It's tough to stop him". "I was already on the court trying to get the refs' attention before the scuffle".

Referee Tony Brothers explained why postgame, saying he saw Thompson go into Livingston with his elbow high on that shot.

"They did a good job coming in and hitting us in the mouth".

"The team understands we had a chance to win that game and we didn't", said Lue.

Stephen Curry ended the game with 29 points for the Warriors while Durant finished with 26 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists with nine points coming from free throws. They're a helping team and guys are going to get shots.
