His presence also forced James to work on the defensive end, sapping some energy he needs on offense if Cleveland is going to keep up with Golden State. Ward (a Bay Area native) was Tweeting loud and proud for Golden State all night. Golden State and Cleveland are playing in the NBA Finals for the third straight season, both have won a title. In Game 1, Cleveland scored 91 points, shot 35.5 percent and the Warriors took an astounding 106 shots. "It's not just the tap-outs, the turnovers, their lack of turnovers (the Warriors had four)".

Rihanna and the Warriors' Kevin Durant engaged in some tension during the game.

The Warriors' 113-91 dismantling of the Cavaliers showed exactly how unsafe they have become with Durant.

According to OddsShark, the Warriors are nine-point favorites over the Cavs for Game 2 on Sunday night at home.

As Game 1 played out on Thursday night, it was quite clear on social media that a group of local champions (and some of their new teammates) are pulling for one side much more than the other.

Tristan Thompson, J.R. Smith, Kyle Korver, and Deron Williams combined for three points.

The Cavaliers rallied within 80-68 with 3:06 remaining in the period, but Golden State wasn't finished with its 3-point-shooting barrage.

Midseason acquisitions Deron Williams and Kyle Korver missed all seven shots they took and failed to score.

James wound up with 28 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists a day after dealing with bigotry far away from basketball. It had no effect on Beat Shazam, which averaged a steady 1.1 rating among adults 18-49 before the game started on the east coast. The Cavaliers were the second seed in the Eastern Conference after Boston surged ahead of them in the final weeks of the season, .

The NBA finals continue on Sunday, with the Warriors hoping to make home advantage count and double their lead before making the trip to OH, next week. "No matter how many days that you have to prepare, you can't simulate what they have".

Late in the game, Durant drilled a three-pointer and before the ball hit the floor, he turned toward Rihanna and gave her a little stare down.
