Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) grabs a rebound against Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (30) during the first half of Game 1 of basketball's NBA Finals in Oakland, Calif., Thursday, June 1, 2017. The Warriors are 0 for 4 from long range.

Curry still scored 28 points of his own, while Thompson only managed six. "It doesn't hurt or anything like that".

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is applauding how Golden State and Cleveland have made it to the NBA Finals for the third consecutive year. That looks like a stronger possibility after Game 1.

During last year's championship round, the Cavs beat up Curry and Thompson, using their physicality to force the "Splash Brothers" into taking hard shots and often forcing the ball out of their hands entirely. Yet he hadn't felt well enough in the previous days to feel like he was ready. He underwent a procedure to fix a spinal fluid leak on May 5 at Duke University but said he is still ailing and in debilitating pain.

Forcing Curry's and Thompson's supporting cast to beat you looked great during the past two editions of the NBA Finals, but now the "supporting cast" is a top 3 player in the league, a former NBA MVP and a four-time scoring champion.
