Warriors fans gave J.R. Smith a free-throw line 'MVP' chant

  • Cavs' Love, Thompson avoid suspension for Game 1 altercation

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

Which means that if anyone can forget Game 1, it's J.R. Smith. "That last play is over, it's behind us, and now we've got to move on".

The only thing missing there are some holstered alien blasters and Neutralizers for each player. There is this balance between accepting that he's going to get his numbers, but making it hard.

"He probably took that loss as hard as anybody on the team", Cavs star LeBron James said Saturday.

Warriors guard Nick Young got limited playing time Sunday and for good reason. "I go to bed, and it swells up".

James, who was playing with blurry vision in one eye after being poked during Game 1, concurs and said he didn't think he needed to say anything to Smith.

He replied: "I might have said that".

He said: "I'll roll my sleeves up and get stuck into it again". "We'll dust ourselves down next year and try and go one better". It came pretty much against the run of play, with Villa now needing to pick up the pieces and stage a comeback.

The read is long but worthwhile, and one of the more interesting nuggets from the conversation was Durant talking about how having four of the leagues best players pledge their support for him and his game. Green then quickly fed J.R. Smith for a wide-open three-pointer.

Kevin Love had 22 points and 10 boards for the cold-shooting Cavs, who will now try to gain some momentum back home. I think people have seen that throughout our postseason runs, where he hasn't played well or played to his ability that he thinks he should have played, and then the next game he comes on and shoots the ball extremely well.

In seven-and-a-half seasons with the Raptors, Calderon became a standout for the Canadian club, setting an National Basketball Association record by sinking 98.1 per cent of his free throws in the 2008-09 season, when he averaged an National Basketball Association career-best 12.8 points a game. "I never felt like we got him out of any sort of comfort zone last night". Rather than settle in his isolation possessions, Durant looked to make plays when he encountered resistance in the half court.

LeBron just about put the team on his back and nearly carried his team to a massive upset in Game 1 but it's nearly as if the basketball gods were against him. "And no, I haven't lost confidence", coach Tyronn Lue said.

Smith, of course, seemed to forget the score at the end of Game 1, grabbing an offensive rebound following George Hill's second missed free throw, essentially dribbling out the clock instead of attempting a shot for the win.

James pointed with both hands after his 3 with 11:04 remaining got his team within seven, before Curry answered from deep the next two trips down the floor.

The Warriors beat the Thunder in a seven-game series just a few weeks earlier.
