The time we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived. The NBA Finals tipped off on Thursday night with Game 1 between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers. The first half was entertaining and well played, as both teams shot over 50 percent from the field. And in what was likely a surprise to most people, the game was tied at the break. And the Cavs actually would have led were it not for a deep 3-pointer at the buzzer by Steph Curry.
Was LeBron in a legal guarding position when he was fouled. The verdict is … changed. What a huge call with the game in the balance. If that had remained the Cavs would have been favorites to take this game. Instead, the Warriors get two free throws and make them both. We’re tied.
