LeBron James scores 51 points but Warriors beat Cavs in game one

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

"George shot the free throw, I got the rebound", Smith said following the game. LeBron James was otherworldly, posting 51 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.

Social media users were turning LeBron James' frustrated reaction to his teammate J.R. Smith's error during Game 1 of the NBA Championship on Thursday into internet gold.

Green taunted Cleveland's Tristan Thompson to spark a shoving incident in the final seconds of overtime that figures to carry over in the emotional 4th consecutive finals between the Cavaliers and Warriors. The Warriors' big four went on a 16-5 run to close out the frame and a bomb from Curry as time expired had the game knotted up at 56.

Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals provided plenty of talking points, and an overturned charge involving LeBron James will be among the hottest topics. "So I stopped, and the game was over". ".I just tried to do that tonight".

"We got to move on". He got halfway down court before turning back and throwing it deep to Hill, who was badly out of position and missed the bucket.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue called a timeout, settled his team down, and led by James, the Cavaliers made a run of their own.

"They have a guy who is playing basketball at a level that I'm not sure anybody's ever seen before, when you consider everything he's doing", Kerr said. "I was outside the charge line, stepped in, took the contact". A star point guard and true difference-maker, Irving had played a huge role in each of the Cavaliers' last two Finals appearances.


"He could have gone up and made a play but mistakes happen", said Cleveland's All-Star forward Kevin Love.

James gave the reporter a few non-answers, but quickly grew exhausted of hearing the same type of questions.

"I do not. I do not [take consolation]", James added.

"What you can't have is a referee who is bull-headed when all of that is taking place, and we find out later that there was a rule in place to help us get the play correct, but we ended up missing it because we were not applying the rule", McCutchen said. "We gave ourself a chance possession after possession".

"I thought we were all aware of what was going on", James said. So I knew once it was 30 seconds to go that they could review that situation.

"We understand how hard and how challenging this task is", James said.

After the game, things remained tetchy, as LeBron stormed out of an interview when asked about Smith's decision.
