Rihanna Responds To Warriors Fan After Game 1 Blowout Of Cavs

Rihanna Responds To Warriors Fan After Game 1 Blowout Of Cavs

It was deafening. It was everywhere.

Warriors sweep the series 4-0 (not copping out and predicting a gentlemens' sweep) and cement this postseason as among the most boring in recent National Basketball Association history.

Kevin Durant scored a game-high 38 points and Stephen Curry hit six three-pointers as the Golden State Warriors cruised to a lopsided 113-91 win in the first game of the NBA Finals on Thursday.

He said the Warriors losing the series was his fault following their Game 7 loss, but he expanded on those thoughts recently to ESPN for an E:60 profile.

Do you know social media is buzzing about it? "Ignore is probably not the word. I think the team will be fine no matter what we do".

Draymond Green: The Warriors' emotionally volatile big man shocked last year's Finals when a skirmish with James led to a one game suspension that proved devastating to its title run.

Now, all the focus of this Finals is on LeBron and KD.

Paul described the action as "great news for the economy" that "could save as many as 6 million". Since then a range of White House aides have refused to speculate on the president's views.

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

But now, with Game 1 of their NBA Finals rematch against the Cleveland Cavaliers looming Thursday night, Kerr seems ready to return, with ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reporting that "there's a chance he will coach at some point" during the series, possibly soon.

Andre Iguodala came off the bench for Green - who got his second foul after charging into Cleveland's Kevin Love - and got his first points of the Finals on a dunk, knotting the game at 12-12. "I'm sure come tip-off tomorrow, when I'm looking at those guys in that uniform, it will feel even more that way, but right now just kind of taking everything in stride". If he wins this year everyone will discount the effort by claiming he only won because he joined forces with the Warriors.

It's tough to get more even than this. Twice he has dished out eight assists. Seven years younger than his teammate James, if Irving continues to play to this level the Cavs could see the ascension of the franchise's future face as James continues to age. "I thought he was wonderful under the circumstances of his injury but to me he looks fresher, faster, stronger than he did a year ago".

On the other end, it was LeBron who kept the Cavaliers in it with 13 first-quarter points on 3-of-5 shooting - he was the best player on the floor early, and he embarrassed JaVale McGee.

Durant is shooting 89 of 160 (55.6 percent) so far in the playoffs, connecting on at least half his shots in each of his past six games. But he still hit 324 3s for the second most in National Basketball Association history to his 402 a year ago and paced himself so he is peaking now. "It kills you. But we learned from it", said Warriors guard Klay Thompson. "That led to us not being able to set our defense and get out and play in transition, play fast like we wanted to". I do feel it's my fault that we lost. Then we put him on Kyrie also. He missed, letting out a loud "ahhhh!" "Confidence comes into play". Obviously shots are falling. But when you replace our weather team with Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving bad things happen to other teams. Especially if you are living in any sort of nightmare.

We will see how this progresses, and we know the Warriors have blown bigger series leads against Cleveland recently, but this was a large start for them.
