LeBron James Asked The Cavs Not To Trade Kyrie Irving

Kevin Durant's performance in the Western Conference Finals was record-breaking

OAKLAND, Calif. - Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert took to Twitter shortly before the start of Game 1 of the NBA Finals to give credit, as he sees it, for why the Cavs are just four wins away from a championship after a season rife with turmoil.

FOR once it wasn't LeBron James stealing all the headlines for Cleveland.

"I don't know his state of mind". "And when I knew that, I was like, OK, that's going to be our ball".

The Warriors then scored on their first possession of overtime when Durant drew a foul from Hill that upset James once again and never looked back, outscoring Cleveland 124-114 in the extra session.

"To do what he did tonight and come out robbed, it's just not right". He said that James' accomplishment of doubling what he and the Warriors had done was "pretty special".

The crucial moment came with 36.4 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter as Durant was whistled for a charging foul that was overturned on video review into a blocking foul on James, giving Durant two free throws he made to lift the Warriors level at 104-104. James, predictably, was salty after the game in his press conference.

A team doesn't get many second chances against great teams in the playoffs. However, Smith provided a different explanation of his thought process and claimed he knew the score was tied.

George Hill missed his second free throw and Smith grabbed the offensive rebound but instead of shooting ran the ball out past the three-point line. "It's just I thought we were going to take a timeout because I got the rebound". Tristan Thompson got ejected for doing something, presumably, although it's unclear what exactly that something was. The Cavs are the biggest finals outsiders in 20 years, but LeBron's 51-point masterclass brought them to the verge of a massive opening victory.

After using their patented third-quarter spurt to go in front by as many as seven points, the Warriors found themselves in a 94-all tie before Green and Curry hit consecutive 3-pointers to create a six-point lead with 4:39 to go in regulation.

Steph Curry scored 29 and Klay Thompson added 24 in the win, with the Splash Brothers combining to make 10-of-21 (47.6%) from three-point range.

Draymond Green flirted with a triple double by notching 13 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. But, his National Basketball Association finals-best 51 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists weren't enough to beat the Warriors.
