Cleveland Cavaliers at Golden State Warriors - 6/4/17 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers was an absolute disaster for LeBron James and crew.

Perhaps more telling - and more foreboding - the Warriors actually increased their lead in the first 4:34 of the second quarter despite Durant and Curry sitting at the same time. "As a group we're very confident in our ability to answer as the series progresses".

Here are 3 takeaways from Game 1.

Durant's only other Finals ended at the hands of LeBron and Miami in 2012.

Just go play. And it worked splendidly for the two-time reigning MVP and Kevin Durant in their first Finals together.

Eoin Morgan came in to join Root, who by that stage was limping after twisting his ankle playing a hook shot. The venue is the Surrey home ground of England opener Jason Roy , now struggling for runs.

Someone painted a racial slur - the N-word - on the gate of his Los Angeles home, leaving James to address racism rather than his seventh straight Finals appearance or stopping KD.

The Warriors executed a great strategy throughout the game of forcing the Cavaliers to guard each player on the court. Let's see what Tyronn Lue can cook up.

It'll be Durant and not erstwhile Warrior Harrison Barnes attacking the Cavaliers from all angles. After another 3-pointer later in the third, Curry turned from the basket and kicked his feet into the air, celebrating his ability to seemingly score at will against the struggling Cavaliers.

After the game, Cavs fans kept saying " don't worry, our team was cold".

James stuffed 28 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists into his 40 minutes.

The recent detection appears to be the farthest yet, with the black holes located about 3 billion light-years away. This extraterrestrial merger formed an enormous pit of darkness, with some 49 times the mass of the sun.

And for those interested in the actual game, the Warriors won. Just see who is going to draw attention, find the open guy and knock down open shots. He shot 3-16. Green shot 3-12 but did contribute stellar defense and rebounding despite getting two early fouls.

"I think it's part of the reason people enjoy watching us play".

Granted, Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night had some ugly moments. The Cavs presented such an opportunity, and when Thompson, Green, and to a lesser extent Curry weren't there to seize it, in came Durant to dole out some punishment. From the opening tip Thompson wanted to focus on the defensive end.

"I'm sure they feel like they could play better but we feel like we can shoot better", Brown said. "They are a high-powered offensive team". But letting the Warriors snag 24 percent of their own misses while only turning it over twice is a disaster, and it manifested in a blowout loss. LeBron has to work now. If they continue to stay focused on defense and make good decisions with the ball, they have a legitimate shot at becoming the first team in National Basketball Association history to mow through the playoffs without a single loss.
