Is Kevin Durant the best all-around player in the NBA Finals?

"The finals obviously are a different feel, a different moment, especially playing away from home - having to settle in, whether it's after the first quarter or first half, first game, whatever it is", Cleveland's Kevin Love said Friday.

"They're the best I ever seen", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said. The Cavaliers forced Golden State into a seven game finals series, and won the title.

All seem to agree on the Golden State Warriors winning.

I'm not even mad, Cleveland. "They will be way more physical". They're going to be more focused in terms of what they want to accomplish on both ends of the floor.

"When you turn the ball over, that's when they become very unsafe because those guys, they sprint down the lane, they sprint to the three-point line, they put a lot of pressure on your defence", James said. The Warriors just have more firepower. "It all makes sense that they lost that game since this is technically his toaster streak", remarks Medworth.

SAN FRANCISCO - The morning after being routed 113-91 in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers held a team film session to sort through the rubble and determine where to go from here against the heavily favored Golden State Warriors. It's because Thompson is doing what every coach from YMCA youth leagues up through the National Basketball Association preaches - if you're not scoring points, contribute in other ways.

Virat Kohli denies reports of rift with coach
If Pakistan dismisses Kohli cheaply, it will significantly increase its chances of restricting India to a low score. When media persons asked him about his alleged spat with Kumble , Kohli said that there are no issues whatsoever.

By comparison, the Warriors committed a measly four turnovers compared to 31 assists on 45 made baskets.

Helped by the fact that the Cavs didn't take the ball away from Golden State, the Warriors tied an National Basketball Association record for the fewest turnovers in a Finals game (four).

Golden State dominated Cleveland in nearly every area of the game.

"Effort, effort, yep", Kyrie Irving said matter-of-factly.

Thursday's Warriors-Cavaliers matchup set several ESPN NBA Finals Game 1 streaming records across metrics.

Not that they're discussing it. Not only did Golden State impose its will by mounting a 56-30 edge in paint points, but it wreaked havoc on defense and forced 20 Cavaliers turnovers.

Philippe Coutinho vows to honour Liverpool contract amid Champions League excitement
He's not at fault if we didn't reach the Champions League , it's the technical department who are responsible for that. Overall I believe that we played since January in a very hard environment for different reasons.

"We got to figure out how to combat that, which is going to be a tough challenge for us", he said.

The Warriors are plenty confident even if Cleveland closes out on the perimeter.

He started the year in Dallas, got traded to and ultimately waived by Philadelphia, and signed with Cleveland because the Cavs knew they needed - and wanted - another tough guy who could clog the lane and had playoff experience.

Oh, he hit from long range, too. Draymond Green led Golden State with 11 rebounds.

"I think they're the prohibitive favorite", ABC analyst Jeff Van Gundy said. "Going into Game 2 we'll be a lot more settled in, a lot better on the defensive end". "They capitalized. And we get an opportunity to get a couple days to see what they did and see what we did wrong and how we can be better in Game 2". So, I haven't heard anything from him.

- The first came off a great cut to beat James. "We had a ton of turnovers". Rihanna is known to be a hard-core LeBron James fan. "I had two charges, that's aggression". "But it's something I did take notice after the game". I know [that] something for them is to keep me off the glass. Those are like pick sixes.
