Cavaliers still think they have the blueprint for beating the Warriors

- Was J.R. Smith high?

Replays appeared to show Smith mouth to a frustrated LeBron James that he thought the Cavs were leading, but during his post-game interview, Smith denied saying such a thing. "If there is a shot clock differential, we're going to take a shot".

"He thought it was over", said Lue. "He thought we were up one". It also reinforced the fact rumor that Smith, recognizable by his, shall we say, sleepy-looking eyes, competes under the influence of alcohol and/or marijuana.

"If I thought we were ahead, I would have just held on to the ball and let them foul me". "Clearly that wasn't the case".

"I hope so", Lue said with a laugh. "I hope the media got a wake-up call".

Now, with his future in the series assured, Thompson will look to bounce back with the rest of his teammates and prepare for the upcoming Game 2 on Sunday. That on top of the Flagrant 2 may be enough for the league to dock him a game.

The Cavs lost in overtime to the Warriors. James notched his eighth 40-point game during this playoff run to tie Hall of Famer Jerry West's feat in 1965 for most in a single postseason. "The team understands we had a chance to win that game but we didn't, so we have to move on". "This game is over and done with".

The pro-Assad commander, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the Syrian army's preparations for the assault were complete. Iraq is no exception, and Syria is no exception. "People will not accept foreigners in this region anymore", Assad said.

Duplantis already has three planes, which he showcases in the video. I don't want to learn how to fly it, I'm not interested in that. "I asked you to believe for it", he said God told him.


Aqib Talib put the blame on Hill, however, who will now get a pass after missing a free throw that could've won the game.

"I never give up on any of my players, any of my teammates". When doing so, they can view if the defender was in a legal guarding position. "So when they called the charge I was surprised, but I'm glad they reviewed it".

Game 1's result hasn't changed Lue's faith in Smith. And then tonight in the Finals on the biggest stage, when our team played well, played our ass off - man, it ain't right.

"We just left a rest stop!"

Durant struggled to find his stroke but wound up with 26 points on 8-for-22 shooting and nine rebounds. Hill made the first shot but missed the second. Thompson lay grimacing in pain then went to the locker room with what was called a bruised left leg that needed re-taping. But it was Smith who came down with the rebound just behind Warriors forward Kevin Durant about four feet from the basket. He and Curry each connected on five 3s. The 76ers and Cavs exchanged words over a Dario Saric dunk late in a blowout in March. "We live on that or we won't be able to perform in Game 2".

Everybody expects another wild one with so much talent on both sides. "There's going to be chatter", Curry said. However, that didn't stop fans from creating hilarious memes of Cleveland Cavaliers superstar James' frustrating gesture for JR Smith. He netted 12 points in the first quarter and helped the Cavaliers earn a 30-29 advantage. Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 11 points in the opening quarter and had 18 points in the first half.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr has a simple rule: Don't partake in any habit that leads to a turnover. Home run king Barry Bonds was in attendance.
