Klay Thompson makes up for shooting slump on defensive end

Klay Thompson makes up for shooting slump on defensive end

Cavaliers forward Kevin Love says greater effort will be coming in game two. When you compare it to LeBron James' 8 turnovers (hurting the impressive stat line of 28-15-8), it's hard to argue the claim that Durant had an almost flawless performance.

Kerr has been out since Game 2 of the Warriors' first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors will be feeling pretty good after drawing first blood in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. While Cleveland searches for the right adjustments, Golden State's roster of perfectionists believes it can play far better still with KD and Steph leading the way, or any of the others who are capable of getting hot in a hurry. "That's the most important thing".

Curry's surge to open the second half pulled the Warriors away to stay. With him being probably one of the best scorers in the National Basketball Association, you can't give guys like that easy opportunities at the basket. This time, however, the Cavs stepped up to stop the ball.

According to the BBC , more than one person has died. "He swerved right round me and then hit about five or six people". May's office said she would chair a meeting of the government's COBRA emergency committee on Sunday.

The Warriors, meanwhile, committed just four, tying the record for the fewest in a Finals game.

The Warriors matched an NBA Finals record low with only four turnovers and struck for 56 points in the paint.

The defense was especially porous in the interior for the first two quarters (remember, the Warriors missed 15 shots within two feet of the rim), but when the buzzer sounded the Cavs were only down eight.

SAN FRANCISCO - The morning after being routed 113-91 in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers held a team film session to sort through the rubble and determine where to go from here against the heavily favored Golden State Warriors. James is built more like a machine and can take the ball to the basket easily. "People see so much unselfishness, they see the beauty in the pass", Andre Iguodala said. "So that's definitely something that has to be on all our minds". If Game 1 is any indication of how the rest of the series will play out, Hayward will have exactly foreseen the outcome.

Local authorities are still looking for other survivors and IOM staff are now working to identify bodies and bury the deceased. The deaths were discovered when six survivors arrived in the remote town of Agadez on the edge of the Sahara.

LeBron James (9-of-20 from the field) and Kyrie Irving (10-of-22) aside, Cleveland shot 25 percent (11-of-44) from the field.

"We kept Tristan off the boards to the best of our abilities", McGee told reporters after Game 1. Korver, a deadly 3-point shooter, had a reduced role against the Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals.

"When it's least expected, he's going to knock down some shots", James said.

If they do, the Warriors could become the first team in National Basketball Association history to make an unbeaten play-off run to the title. That's a good defensive team and they're active and athletic and long and anticipate really well. "But we got to do a better job putting the ball in the basket".

Durant played well in his first Finals trip but didn't have the help he has now with a two-time MVP in Curry, one of the league's best two-way players in Thompson and a do-it-all demon like Green.
