National Basketball Association fines Cavs' Thompson $25,000 after Game 1 incident

Klay Thompson

If Game 1 was anything to go by then this is going to be one fascinating NBA Finals.

"It's one of the toughest losses I've had in my career", James acknowledged Saturday, "because of everything that kind of went on with the game and the way we played. If I was betting, I would say Klay is playing [Sunday] just based on who he is and his attitude today, for sure".

James, who has played in some 1,400 National Basketball Association games, called Thursday's loss one his "toughest" ever when, after some questionable calls by referees, point guard George Hill then missed a free throw with less than five seconds left (which would have given the Cavs the lead).

Santana and his wife Cindy will perform "The Star-Spangled Banner" before Game 2 of the Cleveland-Golden State series at Oracle Arena. "I contested a shot that shouldn't have been taken".

There was also no punishment for Cavs forward Kevin Love, who stepped onto the court just before the Thompson incident with Green to protest the call against his teammate.

When people saw Smith squander the final minute of regulation by taking an offensive rebound out past the 3-point line without calling time, people couldn't believe their eyes.

In addition, the flagrant level 2 foul issued to Thompson in challenging a shot by Golden State's Shaun Livingston was downgraded to a Flagrant 1 after the league review.

The instigation for Thompson's interaction with Green was when the Warriors forward began taunting Thompson after he was tossed from the game with 2.6 seconds remaining.

Facebook has killed the hated Trending Topics bar
Yet two years later, Facebook still hasn't been able to shake the notion of bias. The trending section has proved problematic in several important ways.

Just over 24 hours before tipoff of Game 2 of the NBA Finals, Green issued a threat to Tristan Thompson to let him know that while the physicality on the court may not continue, they could always work out their differences off of it.

We learned the Cavaliers are better than a year ago.

And it hasn't changed Lue's belief in the Cavs' chances against the Warriors.

Curry finished with 33 points on the night to lead the Warriors, while K.D. added 26 points, nine rebounds and seven assists.

"It doesn't look better, but it feels a lot better". Those numbers paled to the postseason-high 51 points he posted in Game 1, anyway. "I got to take my hat off to him". The games will also be available for live streaming on the ESPN app.

For Smith's case, fans - mostly Warriors fans - have been sarcastically thanking him for messing up in the most critical moment of the game.

So when they all came, and they all put stuff to the side to come to the meeting, I was like, man, this is incredible.
