‘Warriors in 5’ was trending on Twitter before Finals Game 1 started

‘Warriors in 5’ was trending on Twitter before Finals Game 1 started

The Cavs and Warriors are meeting for the fourth straight year for the right to be crowned National Basketball Association champions while it marks the eighth consecutive Finals appearance for James as part of a stretch that dates back to his stint in Miami.

Without a doubt, Love is an important part of Cleveland's rotation. After replay review, Tristan Thompson received a Flagrant 2 foul and ejection with 2.6 seconds left. He then retreated to the bench area immediately, so he did not deserve punishment.

With the game almost over, James jawed with both Curry and Klay Thompson, then Tristan Thompson and Draymond Green tangled moments later and made contact. The Warriors weren't concerned about how the league would rule.

"It didn't surprise me, " Kerr said. That's not the way to play. "I don't know what was going through J.R.'s head".

Iguodala isn't feeling down about not being able to suit up for Game 1. James is averaging 34 points, 9.2 rebounds and eight assists through 18 playoff games.

James appeared to draw a charge on Durant. Golden State played well, but it was also the biggest challenge the Warriors have faced since Kevin Durant joined forces with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Co. He made the first free throw to tie it, missed the second.

While addressing reporters at Wednesday's media day, Durant exchanged friendly banter with Cavaliers players Kendrick Perkins, James and Thompson.

In Love's absence, Tyronn Lue turned to Jeff Green, who averaged 16.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in the Cavs' victories in Games 6 and 7. Many believe that he's bound the leave Cleveland once again if they fail the win a ring this year. Neither player can match the all-around production the Warriors get from Draymond Green in defence, rebounding and passing.

Hill said he couldn't sleep last night, reliving the missed free throw.

James called it a "huge play" and said "I knew I was outside the charge line". Put ourselves in a (position) to win the game. Refs do seem to give more leniency to teams regarding this violation when it comes to the end of games, especially a title-winning one. We blew our chance, blew our opportunity. He is scheduled to be re-evaluated ahead of Game 2. Will Andre Iguodala return from a leg injury?

"We were one pick away from drafting him before Philly took him", James said. Sure, I will see some of him. That's always the challenge when you play a great player.
