Warriors smash Cavaliers in NBA Finals opener

He dished off even when he could have slammed it home and did it all on defense.

The Warriors beat Cleveland for the 2015 crown but squandered a 3-1 lead previous year as the Cavs made the greatest comeback in NBA Finals history. He was pleased with allowing Golden State to shoot 42 percent from the field, but doesn't want to give away as many easy buckets and is looking to see Cleveland rebound better.

"We were really, really good in that department at just being ourselves, playing Warriors basketball, knowing that there's a lot of talent out on the floor", said Curry, who had 28 points and 10 assists.

"You're not going to see insane celebrations, you're not going to see us getting ahead of ourselves".

Beyond the turnovers - which stood out in contrast to the Warriors' record-low four - it was nearly laughable at times how the Cavaliers abandoned the paint defensively as they tried to avoid getting killed by the Warriors 3-point shooting.

Durant punished Cleveland for leaving him free, taking the ball to the hoop for emphatic dunks as a man on a mission to deliver what he came for: a championship. Any trials and tribulations you go through, you don't go through alone.

"They're the best I ever seen", Lue said, flatly, during his postgame rema.

He started the year in Dallas, got traded to and ultimately waived by Philadelphia, and signed with Cleveland because the Cavs knew they needed — and wanted — another tough guy who could clog the lane and had playoff experience.

Durant, who missed 20 games during the regular season with a sprained knee, was simply spectacular in his Warriors championship series debut.

Once his night was finally done, Durant found mother Wanda at the end of the Warriors bench and held her in a warm embrace.

As she walked out of Oracle Arena past the Cavaliers locker room, Rihanna yelled, "The King is still The King", a reference to James's nickname. "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". Not even a 3-1 deficit a year ago was enough to faze him. Yet in a light, late-night moment, when asked why he stopped wearing the protective sleeve on his right arm, the North Carolina native channeled his inner, more mischievous self. He shot 11 for 22, 6 of 11 on 3s.

"I mean, it's no ifs, ands, or buts".

Just go play. And it worked splendidly for the two-time reigning MVP and Kevin Durant in their first Finals together. The lapses were mostly glossed over as the Cavs streaked through the Eastern Conference playoffs.

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

The teams will meet again in Oakland on Sunday for Game Two of the best-of-seven series.
