Golden State Warriors crush Cavs to win Game 1 of NBA Finals

The defending champion Golden State Warriors won Game 1 of their NBA Finals rematch against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday 104-89, and it wasn't a one-man victory. Warriors guard and two-time reigning MVP Steph Curry scored only 11 points, while Klay Thompson put just nine points on the board. But six other Warriors scored in double digits; reserve guard Shaun Livingston notched 20 points, a personal postseason best. For the Cavs, LeBron James had 23 points, 12 rebounds, and nine assists. Game 2 of the best-of-seven series is on Sunday.
