NBA Finals 2018: Warriors vs

The other play that burned the Cavs was a change in a call from a charge on Kevin Durant to a blocking foul on James with 36.4 seconds left and the Cavs ahead by two.

The game almost over, James jawed with both Curry and Klay Thompson, then Tristan Thompson and Draymond Green tangled moments later and made contact.

In Houston Monday night, the Warriors pulled their act together and came back from a double-digit deficit to beat the Rockets 101-92 in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals. He seemed to think they were leading, so instead of shooting the ball or passing to an open teammate, he dribbled the ball out.

Coach Steve Kerr lamented that Golden State's first half on Monday night was "one of the most freakish first halves" his team has played since he's been with the Warriors and joked that he thought of resigning at halftime before getting serious.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue did not mince words. Of course, you could say that about LeBron James' entire career, but specifically this year, throwing the Cleveland Cavaliers on his back and nearly literally carrying them into the NBA Finals.

Lue said Smith thought Cleveland was up one after the Hill's missed free throw, a serious lapse in focus.

Cavaliers guard George Hill was at the free throw line after he was fouled by Klay Thompson and had the chance to give his team the lead as they were trailing 107-106 with just 4.7 seconds left in the fourth quarter.

"Just having these guys here who have been through it, been through the tough times, been through the great times as well, this is a bond that can't be broken", Lue said. Golden State went on to win 124-114, taking a 1-0 series lead in dramatic fashion. Any time you get to the finals you're playing for a championship and that's motivation in itself.

It is one of the only trophies to have eluded Curry during his career. It's never been done, ever, in the history of the game. With his 293rd career 3 in the playoffs, made in the second quarter, Thompson passed Kobe Bryant (292) for sixth place on the NBA's list for postseason 3s.

"We were told they were reviewing if I had my feet outside the line", James said. Home run king Barry Bonds was in attendance. "But he shot the shot I don't know, maybe he was trying to increase his points but that was some (expletive) but I was there to contest".

"I'm glad we're going back", Warriors forward Kevin Durant said. That's a good thing.
