King James rules the court in heroic Game One defeat

Cleveland is 0-3 in Game 1's against Golden State in the Finals.

But if this series quickly becomes as lopsided as some fear — ABC analyst Jeff Van Gundy said he couldn't remember a bigger gap between finals teams and said any game the Cavs win is a huge upset — many of those people who have tuned in the last few years might be looking for something else to watch by the time the series switches to Cleveland.

Here are the five things the Cavs have to do to compete in the 2018 NBA Finals, and how the Warriors can shut those strategies down.

Despite the grueling series with the Rockets that went seven games, Warriors fans shouldn't worry about player's focus. But James was given a foul following a review with 36.4 seconds left and Kevin Durant converted a pair of free throws to tie it at 104.

"It was a special moment for us".

"We've got to just do a good job of taking care of the basketball and owning our space in that third quarter, and I think we'll be fine".

Don't stop at one day. And don't stop with your Mom
It's to send to your mum to let her know that you value her so much. " Mothers are the rock of life", says shopper Aric Nunes. The world is full of possibilities, and you are a stronger person because you've come through some BS and won.

"And we've done it by appreciating everybody that's a part of that group". I knew I was outside the charge line, so that's what the communication was to us.

Kevin Love made a return for Cleveland after getting sidelined for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals against Boston and contributed 21 points, 13 boards, and one assist. Yes, the fourth straight NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors, but I'm talking about the fourth time I've written out these confidence picks.

James finished with 51 points in the highest scoring finals game in a losing effort and had the Cavaliers in position to win when his pass down low to George Hill drew a foul on Klay Thompson with 4.6 seconds left and Cleveland trailing 107-106. "Just trying to figure out how to move in general".

There's no doubt in his mind he will be ready when the ball tips.

The call had initially been a charge on 2017 finals MVP Durant and James protested the change - while KD said afterward he thought it was the right decision because "I knew he was late on the drive and I knew I had my man beat and he came over a little late". "So numbers and things like that kind of take care of itself".

"We understand how hard and how challenging this task is", James told reporters after the game, which marked the fourth consecutive year the teams have met in the Finals.
