For 50 minutes we were all excited — it looked like we could have an epic NBA Finals on our hand.
But as Golden State pulled away to win Game 1 in overtime, Kyrie Irving went down with a leg injury that could cost him at least Game 2 and maybe the series. It left the Cavaliers locker room shell shocked, and hoops fans everywhere disappointed.
In today’s edition of the PBT Podcast, we’ve got PBT’s Kurt Helin and Brett Pollakoff, plus NBCSports’ Dominic Ridgard breaking down Game 1 and looking at what that should tell us about Game 2. Our consensus is Golden State can play a lot better still (we barely saw the small lineup that is a key weapon).
