Rihanna Was The Real Star Of NBA Finals Game 1

Rihanna Was The Real Star Of NBA Finals Game 1

In Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Golden State Warriors extended their streak to 13 wins in a row, as they handed the Cavaliers a 113-91 loss, according to The New York Times. They did it last season.With his big output in Game 1, Durant joined Hall of Famers Rick Barry, Michael Jordan and Shaquille O'Neal as the only players to score at least 25 points in each of his first six Finals games.Game 2 of the finals will air on Sunday at 6 p.m. MDT."You cannot simulate what they bring to the table no matter how many days you have to prepare".

"[LeBron], I mean, he's at the forefront of that". It is what it is. We have to get the matchups we like and take advantage.

"But that's what stands out". The Cavs, meanwhile, committed 20 turnovers, leading to 21 points for Golden State.

As Warriors sixth man Andre Iguodala said, "I think that's why people enjoy watching us play".

Nobody on the Warriors much cares - and not just because they won Game 1 in a rout anyway.

"We got to figure out how to combat that, which is going to be a tough challenge for us", he said. "So definitely a lot of things we can correct and get better at".

Not even the Cleveland Cavaliers have been able to stop the Warriors, at least yet. "But if we have that same defensive effort collectively, we'll be really tough to beat". "Going into Game 2, we'll be a lot more settled in, a lot more better on the defensive end".

"Apparently Kian knows what he's doing", said Rad Nasrin. "But I understand the road is very challenging, especially when you get to this level, you get to the Finals, you get to the Eastern Conference finals". "They did a good job of switching out on pin-downs, so of course Korver is not going to come up on pin-downs and things like that".

Durant provided a conundrum for Cleveland's defense.

The Warriors won the 2015 championship but let a 3-1 lead slip previous year as James's Cavaliers finally brought the Larry O'Brien trophy back to Ohio. And, despite everything that happened in Game 1, and the long odds so many outside of their locker room give them in both Game 2 and this series, that alone is enough to give them a fighting chance. It's impossible to work in practice against the pace of Golden State, and Cleveland didn't handle the transition game almost well enough.

Durant also did a good job defensively in his 1-on-1 matchups with James, who still managed 28 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists but also turned the ball over eight times. So, I haven't heard anything from him. Rihanna allegedly had Durant embroiled in a war of words, which caused Durant to allegedly stare Rihanna down after a 3-pointer in the fourth quarter. Golden State had 11 first-half dunks in all, the most of any team in any Finals half in 20 years, Durant (six) leading the way. "They capitalized. And we get a couple days to see what they did and see what we did wrong and how we can be better in game two". You don't really have to force much of the infusion of KD into your lineup. "You can't be anxious about getting the rebound yourself".

Cleveland went just 23-23 after January 10 and was ranked in the bottom third statistically on defense all season.
