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). He'd sniffed the record before, hitting seven 3-pointers in three separate Finals games.

The series shifts to Cleveland for Games Two and Three.

It took one game for J.R. Smith's destructive tentacles to spread into both locker rooms, bashing the psyche of the Cavaliers and the lower body of one of the Warriors' best players, simultaneously sprinting away with Cleveland's best chance to win Game 1 while putting a potentially huge dent in the Warriors for Game 2 and beyond.


Former Celtics star Ray Allen set the previous record in 2010, when he made eight 3-pointers against the Lakers in Game 2 of that series.

Kevin Love had 22 points and 10 boards for the cold-shooting Cavs, who will now try to gain some momentum back home. He will not be playing in Game 2. Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant are going to shoot well, too. While it is easy to scream, "How can you ever leave Curry open?!" at your television, it is exhausting to keep track of him all game when he rarely stops moving.

The Cavaliers coach, Tyronn Lue, paid tribute to his players for keeping the game close until the fourth-quarter but admitted the Warriors were the better team.

LeBron James had 29 points and 13 assists, falling just a rebound short of a triple-double.


James has 1,298 points in the finals and needs 20 to move ahead of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (1,317) into second place behind Jerry West.

If not, Curry has another shot at it next year. It will be the fourth straight finals that Santana, a 10-time Grammy victor and three-time Latin Grammy victor, has played the anthem before the second game on the Warriors' home floor.

We'll see what the Cavs have left.

"Klay is just a physical specimen", Warriors coach Steve Kerr told the Mercury News on Friday. (James) said something. I said something, and then Tristan lost his mind for a second, and that became a distraction from the fact that we were closing out an overtime game. Whatever was going through Smith's head, the miscommunication was obvious and highlights the troubles facing Cleveland going into Game 2.


It will be the fourth straight finals that Santana, a 10-time Grammy victor and three-time Latin Grammy victor, has played the anthem before the second game on the Warriors' home floor. They must focus on unraveling the Warriors in Game 2 by working together.
