Replay overturn plays key role in Warriors' Game 1 win

Replay overturn plays key role in Warriors' Game 1 win

"There were some plays that we had taken away from us", James said.

But after two epic Game 7s over this Memorial Day weekend - during which James delivered 48 minutes of resilient brilliance in Boston and the Warriors rallied back from an 11-point halftime deficit against the Rockets with some gorgeous shot-making and championship poise - another emotion feels more appropriate now.

"I think it's great for the league to have the two best teams make it to the Finals, and that's what took place, the two best teams in their respective conferences are representing them", said analyst Mark Jackson on the press call. After both teams were separated, and there was a lengthy replay review - including Curry and James continuing to talk to one another with their mouths covered - Thompson was given a level-two flagrant foul, and was ejected as a result.

LeBron James drove past Stephen Curry and got a three-point play with 50 seconds to play to put his team up 104-102. "It was determined he was out of the restricted area but he was not in a legal guarding position prior to Durant's separate shooting motion".

"If you're going to pull this off, you have to hit perimeter shots", Smith said on ESPN show First Take. "It's a huge play".

Durant said he had a block-charge reversal in the regular season.

James answered with an impressive drive, changing hands in midair before scoring to give the Cavs the lead. The Warriors, in 17 playoff games, outscored their opponents by 130 points in the third quarter and a total of 20 points in the other three quarters combined.

He now ties Jerry West for the most 40-point games in a single postseason.

He made 19 of 32 shots, added eight rebounds and eight assists and played almost 48 minutes for a third straight game. That's tied for the largest point spread in a Finals game since 1991, according to ESPN Stats & Information. But it was only a few short weeks ago that I would have predicted a Warriors sweep over the Cavs in the Finals.

As usual, James carried a brunt of the offensive load for the Cavaliers, who looked ready to reward him with a win in another epic performance by the MVP. We just came up short.

Oh no. LeBron James reacts to a call late in regulation. He's been doing it for us all season.

"He just has to get it to a Game 7, because if he gets to Game 7, and he's the best guy on the court and can shorten the game, they could win the series", Simmons said Thursday.
