The Cleveland Cavaliers opened Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals on Thursday night hot, especially considering how many have picked the Golden State Warriors to in the series in four or five games.
But as they do, the Warriors came roaring back during the second quarter, complete with a Stephen Curry runner at the first half buzzer to tie things up, 56-56.
The play came after a missed Jeff Green jumper on the other end with 7.8 seconds to go. Kevin Durant grabbed the rebound and flipped it to Curry, who promptly ducked a Cavaliers defender and did this.
Meanwhile the Cavaliers are playing the Warriors evenly but it’s taken 24 points from LeBron James just to do so.
