Smith's goof, foul call cost Cavs in NBA Finals opener

Smith's goof, foul call cost Cavs in NBA Finals opener”

"Individual player accomplishment and team accomplishments", he said.

King James stands in the way of a Warriors repeat, just as he did in spoiling that quest for Golden State and leading the Cavs to a championship two years ago with a Game 7 win on the Warriors' home court, where they have now won 17 of the last 18 post-season games.

After the game, Smith tried to explain his rationale, saying he knew the score was tied at 107, so he dribbled the ball out to either set up a better shot or get a timeout.

"Based on how long it's been and when it happened, I'm not that far away", Iguodala told reporters on Wednesday. "But he is in the protocol still, so we'll see how he feels".

"I watched these dudes in Game 3 and Game6 and they're down 15 and I go to the bathroom, I come out. go get a pretzel and they're up 13".

The overtime blowout did not prevent the game from ending in a controversial manner, however, with an altercation between Cavs big man Tristan Thompson and Warriors forward Draymond Green. Smith also said he stopped because he saw James trying to timeout - the refs didn't see James' attempts.

"I'm still not sure", Lue said of Love's Game 1 availability.

Stalker 2 Development Confirmed, Launches in 2021
A website recently popped up online displaying only an image that says S.T.A.L.K.E.R.2 and 2.0.2.1. The site shows a dark concrete background with "S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2" and "2.0.2.1." written on it.

As ESPN's Rachel Nichols noted on "SportsCenter", it's possible that Lue misunderstood the question or was just giving his own interpretation.

Kevin Durant added 26 points, nine rebounds, six assists, three blocks, and one steal, while Klay Thompson, who briefly left the game due to a left leg contusion, chipped in 24 points, three rebounds, and one assist.

LeBron James' sensational postseason this year has carried his team to this point but there will need to be a much more collective effort against the Warriors.

Smith secured the rebound but dribbled to half court, a play usually made with the lead. "I mean, it may not be as suspenseful as a lot of people may want it to be or as drama-filled, but that's what you've got movies and music for". "So when they called the charge, I was surprised, but I'm glad they reviewed it".

As part of its coverage, ESPN will unveil its first "NBA Surround" feature, which will include pre-game and in-game second-screen streaming offerings for every game and dedicated post-game shows on ESPN2 or ESPNEWS.

Come Game 7, Paul still wasn't cleared to play.
