Six Warriors were in double figures this evening and they were able to stop the Cavs on the defensive end. Lebron James had a stellar game with 23 points and so was Kyrie Irving with 26 points. Kevin Love had a good game with 17 points, but the supporting cast was non-existence.
J.R Smith had only 3 points and the rest of the bench was not a factor. They have to step up for game two. The Cavaliers had to defend Curry and Thompson better and shut down the Warriors bench. Game two is Sunday night at Oracle Arena with tip-off at 8:00 P.M.
