Curry, Durant power Warriors past Cavs in Game 1, 113-91

Stephen Curry will be hoping to lead the Golden State Warriors to another NBA title

Stephen Curry says the Golden State Warriors will not allow themselves to get carried away in the NBA Finals despite a crushing victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in game one.

Catfish are likely to be flying early and often after one snuck its way onto the ice in Pittsburgh, but home ice advantage and a return to familiarity will not matter if Nashville netminder Pekka Rinne does not play better.

Durant, seeking his first National Basketball Association crown after leaving Oklahoma City for Golden State last July, hit 14-of-26 from the floor and added eight rebounds and eight assists, his early domination including six first-half dunks, more than in any prior full playoff game. So 15 points isn't 22, but that remarkable seven-game Finals we got last June, the one in which the Cavaliers became the first team ever to claw back from 3-1 to win the National Basketball Association title, featured a similar result in the opener.

But after a 13-0 run to open the second half with help from four of Cleveland's 20 turnovers, the game was never close, leaving Cleveland to figure out a way to regroup before Game 2 on Sunday. Going into game two we'll be a lot more settled in, a lot better on the defensive end. "That's what you dream about as a kid, is to play at the highest level".

As this highly anticipated rematch tipped off at last, the biggest difference from past year was clear.

"We have to stop the ball first and foremost", said Cleveland's Kevin Love, whose 21 rebounds in Game 1 were a franchise postseason record. The Warriors might be too much of a good thing, which could prompt viewers to reach for the remote, which is not the kind of drama the league has been pitching.

Defensively he used his length and quickness to pester James, who committed an uncharacteristic eight of the Cavs' 20 turnovers.

"When Kevin Durant has the ball you don't want to leave him for [other] shooters".

It wasn't bad enough the Golden State Warriors overwhelmed defending champion Cleveland in winning Thursday's NBA Finals opener 113-91. Not even a 3-1 deficit previous year was enough to faze him. I don't know when I'm going to dunk or when I'm going to get the wide-open three. "It should be very easy for us to do, all things considered".

"They're the best I've ever seen", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. "I mean, no other team has done this, right?" "They're 13-0. They're constantly breaking records every year". They still have a deep lineup, but now the Cavs have brought in some other players to compete.

Warriors forward Draymond Green said the experience of a third consecutive Finals made his team more accustomed to the sport's biggest stage.

"I'm about great finals", he said when cornered by muckraking monsters TMZ.
