Warriors come out strong to beat Cavaliers in Game 2

Warriors come out strong to beat Cavaliers in Game 2

Instead, Thompson was fined for failing to leave the court in a timely manner after being ejected and for shoving the ball in Green's face with 2.6 seconds remaining in overtime after being taunted by the Warriors forward for being ejected.

Everyone is still trying to figure out what went on in the final minute of regulation in Game 1.

This was something which James emphasised when talking to the media about the incident, as he said: "We've got to move on".

James has done so all postseason with an edge, intensity and ability to all-out carry the Cavs - will them to win after win, if you wish. We see what we need to do and how we need to perform to win. There is this balance between accepting that he's going to get his numbers, but making it hard. "I might have said that", Smith said Saturday. It did, however, leave the game tied 107-107 and take it into overtime.

"I don't know why I got thrown out", Cleveland's Thompson said after the loss. "He hasn't probably been as consistent as he was past year, but neither have we", coach Steve Kerr said.

"I contested a shot that shouldn't have been taken", Thompson said afterward, per ESPN. It started after LeBron James converted a three-point play to give Cleveland a 104-102 lead with 50 seconds left.

I wouldn't characterise it as a long absence. " She seems to be recovering well", he said, though he offered no further details. That statement was released post-procedure, allowing Grisham to add that it was "successful and there were no complications".

Indeed, James described Smith as "one of the most resilient guys I've ever been around", and having known him since they both were in high school, he has a long history with the Cavs shooting guard that informs that opinion.

Lue expects a big bounce-back performance in Game 2.

And there's another Cavs headache - Durant and everybody else getting better - which they wanted to show in Game 2 Sunday, when they sought to keep their home-court advantage.

Smith was asked if he remembered telling an irate LeBron James, "I thought we were ahead", after the clock expired, as it appeared he told James in a camera angle captured by the ABC broadcast of the game.

The All-Star shooting guard is reportedly dating former UNLV basketball player Dylan Gonzalez, who left college basketball (along with her twin sister) to pursue a career in music. They'll get to know me as a person, I was confident with that.

James looked absolutely unstoppable in a 51-point performance in Game 1, as he was almost flawless driving to the basket and dropping bombs from 3-point range, but Sunday he passed up several open looks from deep early and only had two shots nine minutes into the game. We saw the beginning of a series that probably will go the full seven games. The stuff that comes out of it, you lose a game and everyone talks about it on TV the next day.
