Durant makes his mark in Game 1 of NBA Finals for Warriors

Durant makes his mark in Game 1 of NBA Finals for Warriors”

There were a handful of times Cleveland was more focused on Curry and the 3-point shooters, but Durant made them pay with six first-half dunks.

LeBron James hailed the impact of Kevin Durant after the Golden State Warriors star dominated the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals opener. "We got to figure out how to combat that, which is going to be a tough challenge for us". "So it's more or less a heart thing, a prideful thing".

"Give Klay Thompson a ton of credit because he's out there fighting over screens, getting hit, trying to contest, trying to rebound, trying to do it all for us defensively", Warriors head coach Mike Brown told.

Cleveland went just 23-23 after January 10 and was ranked in the bottom third statistically on defense all season. And there is no doubt he would have been eager to go against the team that jettisoned him to the Mavericks to make room for Durant.

But Alford noted that Lonzo Ball , who exhibits a quieter demeanor than his father, "does get a persona that's totally not him". Should the Lakers not select Ball on June 26, the player would be wise to show his stuff to other potential suitors.

Curry, sitting beside Durant, interjected, "Don't get into that trap, man". "They had 27 points on fast breaks".

According to ABS-CBN News, she also tried to distract forward Kevin Durant on the free-throw line by yelling, "Brick!" "We've still got a long way to go to win this series".

Stephen Curry did his share by scoring 28 points with six 3-pointers and 10 assists as this sure-to-be thrilling trilogy began, a long-expected, spectacular grand finale envisioned ever since that July day Durant left Oklahoma City to join the loaded Warriors. That was on display in Game 1, even if it wasn't as sparkly as the Warriors committing only four turnovers when they controlled the ball as if on a tether.

"Some of our lack of communication led to mistakes and led to buckets". And the team that gets spanked typically has better between-game practices, with more fodder and greater incentive to drill down for adjustments. Cleveland has to defend near the basket better.

The turnovers were an issue all night, with James committing eight of them.

His absence has not slowed down the Warriors one bit, who are 13-0 in the playoffs and rolled the Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Tristan Thompson couldn't get on track in Game 1 against the Warriors.

Midseason acquisitions Deron Williams and Kyle Korver missed all seven shots they took and failed to score.
