Kevin Durant gives Warriors edge in NBA Finals Game 1 win

02 Juin, 2017, 12:33 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

So it turns out having Kevin Durant instead of Harrison Barnes really helps against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals.

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant was in a dunking mood in Game 1 of the 2017 NBA Finals on Thursday night.

Fellow superstar Stephen Curry scored 28 points for the Warriors, who their extended their flawless playoffs streak this season to 13-0, an National Basketball Association record.

James had just one turnover in the second half and finished with 28 points and 15 rebounds, but the Warriors blew it open in the third quarter as they continued to score off turnovers, second-chance points and offensive fouls by the Cavs.

If Durant keeps it up and fellow ex-NBA MVP Steph Curry (28 points, 10 assists) keeps doing his thing, it might not matter what LeBron does the rest of the way.

The teams are back at the Oracle Arena again on Sunday for the second match in the best-of-seven match series, before the action heads to OH for two games.

For the game, the Cavs committed 20 turnovers to the Warriors' four.

It's the first time in league history the same teams have faced off in the finals three years in a row. It was his first NBA Finals game since his Oklahoma City Thunder lost to LeBron James and the Miami Heat in 2012. (The latter number ties an NBA Finals record.) That number needs to be much more even in Game 2 in order for Cleveland to even the series.
