NBA Stephen Curry on Winning NBA Finals MVP: 'Who Cares'

Cavs forward Le Bron James

The Golden State Warriors may have the luxury of using the series opener as a feel-out game against the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers, but LeBron James will no doubt have to come out swinging.

And with about 4 seconds left in the fourth, George Hill went to the line with Cleveland down by one for two shots.

James and the Cavs will be aided, though, by the return of All-Star forward Kevin Love, who cleared the league's concussion protocol and will play in Game 1. For as good as James' teammates were for 47 minutes on Thursday night, they unfortunately let the King down when it mattered the most. After losing the previous year, Golden State signed Kevin Durant as a free agent and went on to win 67 games in the regular season.

"I'm just trying to figure out how to move in general, but I'm making some progress, slower that we expected", Iguodala said.

But they got every break in Game 1.

"I'll pick his brain about some things. some tendencies of LeBron, the fact of the switches or small things like that to help me out", Looney said. Made the first. Missed the second. They get 3s and easy baskets.

"Splintered" is how Stephen Curry described what he feared could happen in the second quarter of Game 7 at Houston with the Warriors pushed to the brink by the Rockets in a thrilling West showdown. Overtime. Big break No. 4.

"His approach has been great the last couple of days, " Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said. "And when I knew that, I was like, OK, that's going to be our ball". WATCH: Coverage of the 2015 Warriors championship paradeThe first two games were played at Oracle Arena in Oakland.

Using the checkboxes on the left side of the visualization, one can take a deep dive into the numbers, mixing and matching different categories. After being very correct about not being afraid of the Raptors, and slightly less correct about not being afraid of the Celtics, here are three reasons why I will still be able to sleep at night despite the Cleveland Cavaliers upcoming match-up with the reigning National Basketball Association superteam, the Golden State Warriors.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst said on "SportsCenter" that much of the anger in the Cavs' locker room was over the over-turned charging call on Durant, rather than Smith's gaffe.

Many onlookers thought this series would be a rout, a Golden State coronation.
