Curry Reveals Details About 'Trash Talk' With LeBron James

James, playing in his eighth successive finals, claimed his best play-off points haul - the highest since Michael Jordan scored 55 in 1993.

Handed an unexpected lifeline, the Warriors went on to win Game 1 124-114 in overtime, despite LeBron James' 51 points-a career-high in the Finals for the three-time National Basketball Association champion.

From there, the Warriors used that momentum in overtime, kicking off with a 7-0 run.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 29 points, adding six rebounds and nine assists. However, they can still take home court for the series with a Game 2 win. But it wasn't enough when Curry answered with a three-point play followed by Smith's miscue.

LeBron went on to recap the ups and downs of this season and said he didn't really have a championship on his mind.

James was sensational throughout the tightly contested affair which the Warriors won 124-114 when their potent offence moved up a gear in overtime. With the Cavs up by a basket and only 36 seconds remaining, Kevin Durant was called for a charge for running into James. I think we played as well tonight as we've played all postseason, and we gave ourselves a chance possession after possession after possession. With the game tied 107-107, teammate George Hill missed a clutch free throw and JR got the rebound.

What was a fluke was a silly mental error by veteran J.R. Smith that played a critical role in the Cavaliers' loss.

Hill made the first free throw but missed the second. And you knew when overtime arrived, it was going to be the Golden State Warriors' game. Referees were unsure of the call and went to review, ultimately deciding that it was in fact a blocking foul, which resulted in a pair of charities for Durant, that tied the game at 104-all. The Warriors barely won Game 3 in Cleveland past year before getting blown out by the Cavaliers in Game 4.

I'm pretty sure everybody didn't think I was going to shoot it over KD right there.

"LeBron was clearly 4 feet outside the restricted area", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. He played arguably the game of his life and still came up short against a team that's already beaten him twice in the NBA Finals.

Late in the OT period, Tristan Thompson of the Cavs was ejected.

"I knew once it was 30 seconds to go that they could review that situation", Durant said.

Kerr insisted he wasn't surprised to see the Cavaliers, a distinct underdog in the series, put up such a tough fight.

Damasen, whose family resides in San Jose, said that she is rooting for the Warriors to win another ring this year, and that she couldn't pick a favorite player from the team because she loves them all.
