The Golden State Warriors took care of business in Game 1, beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 104-89 in front of a raucous Oracle Arena crowd. While the end result wasn’t unusual, the manner in which the Warriors picked up their victory was downright shocking. Steph Curry and Klay Thompson combined to score only 20 points on 8-27 shooting from the floor, as it was the bench players that got the job done for Golden State.
Shaun Livingston lead the way for the Warriors with a postseason-high 20 points on a blistering 8-10 shooting performance. Andre Iguodala chipped in 12 points and Leandro Barbosa had 11, as Golden State’s bench outscored Cleveland’s bench 45-10. I guess they didn’t want to suffer the same fate as Steve Kerr’s clipboard. What a master motivator.
The Cavs had a very rough shooting night, hitting only 38.1% of their shots from the floor and 33.3% of their shots from 3-point range. Kyrie Irving lead Cleveland with 26 points, but he shot only 7-22 from the floor. LeBron James flirted with a triple double, scoring 23 points, grabbing 12 rebounds, and dishing out 9 assists. Kevin Love also had a nice game with 17 points and 13 rebounds.
Tonight, the Warriors will look to extend their lead to 2-0, while the Cavs will try to head back to Cleveland with a 1-1 split. Let’s break down all the ways you can watch Game 2 of the NBA Finals.
