The Cleveland Cavaliers got trucked by the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Cleveland hung with Golden State for a while, but eventually the Dubs just turned on the jets and decided they were not going to lose. In seemingly the blink of an eye the Warriors ran away the game ended in a 113-91 blowout.
It really was a crazy performance by the Warriors – they had 31 assists and four turnovers and won by 22 despite Klay Thompson only having six points. Kevin Durant was magnificent (38 points, eight rebounds, eight assists), as was Steph Curry (28 points, 10 assists, six rebounds, three steals). It was a reminder that Golden State’s roster is built to bombard opponents even if one or two of their All-NBA caliber players have a bad night.
For Cavs coach Tyronn Lue, this game confirmed to him that this is the best team that he’s ever seen.
