Warriors v Cavaliers, Game One

  • LeBron James net worth

For our team to come out and play their hearts out and compete the way we did, man, I mean, it's bad.

"A great effort all the way through and we are standing in an fantastic performance from 'Bron tonight", the two-time MVP added.

George Hill hit his first of two free throws to tie the game with 4.7 seconds to play.

James had seven points in a 10-2 run capped by his three-point play with 50.8 seconds left that gave the Cavs a 104-102 lead. James was calling for the ball that entire time and could only hold his arms out in shock before walking back to the huddle for overtime.

"He thought we were up one", Lue said.

However, instead of Cleveland getting the ball with a chance to put the game away on its next possession, the referees went to the replay monitor and changed the call to a block on James, giving Durant an opportunity to tie the game with two free throws.

"We had a timeout and I was trying to get enough space - obviously 'K.D.' (Kevin Durant) was standing right there. Now I have got to get into the postseason'". Yet the game's not won by just offensive rebounds.


Smith attempted to clear up his huge mistake after the game and claimed that he did know the game was tied.

"You take it all the way throughout the night thinking about it and ways you could have been better and plays that could have happened that could have gone your way and didn't go your way or things you could have done".

The American TV network's talking head Stephen A. Smith - with an annoying habit for hyperbole and over-reaction - was actually spot on with his assessment of what he called a "tragic" blunder. The Warriors beat the Cavaliers in overtime in 2015's Game 1 as well. However, Smith inexplicably took the rebound back towards half-court instead of attempting the potential game-winning basket. You remember the 1993 NCAA Final Four game when Michigan's Webber called timeout with 11 seconds left down 73-71.

On his way out, he tells the reporter "be better tomorrow".

Of course, McGee being McGee, he also got blocked by the rim later in the quarter, taking some shine off his good play - and probably landing him on Shaq-tin A Fool, Shaquille O'Neal's laugh-out-loud National Basketball Association follies video show.

"I can't say what he said when he was not on microphone, but I'll just say that LeBron felt like they got the wrong end of the stick tonight - just a lot more stronger than that".
