The cavs are getting a taste of what the Celtics got from the refs.

This is a DO or DIE game for game 2.

If they lose game 2, this series is 100% over. It's done, stick a fork in it.

Now they should have made those true short-shorts, like they had back in the Bird-Magic days. That would really have been something.

I agree. Cavs arenít winning 4 of 5 if they get in a 0-2 hole against this team. Win game 2 and they need 1 win at home to make it a series. If Iggy comes back the Warriors will have another good defender to throw at Lebron

Kevin Love to be suspended for game 2? Maybe Tristan Thompson too? From my understanding, the rules are pretty clear that Love should be suspended. Imagine the ruckus from Draymond Green and the GSW if not?

Why don’t the Cavs just wear regular clothes...let people know they are totally focused on basketball and haven’t given a thought to fashion. Lebron looked a little rediculous walking off at the press conference in his Girl Scout shorts.

I covered most of it I think
So true, and I liked the Warriors up until their whining in 2016. Now, all they do is whine, bunch of whiners and complainers and arrogant punks. Any fan should have a problem with all the terrible calls year after year. It's not so much that the call was reversed, it was the fact that they had to review this in the first place, when it was so obvious Lebron was, like Ty Lue said 4 feet away, from the restricted area.

There are 3 officials in the game, and it's unforgivable how many calls they miss and this one in particular. The rule needs to be changed because why is a foul call in the last two minutes any more important than throughout the game? Steve Javie said that in real time it was a charge, so then let's slow every foul call down and then start overturning any foul call. Steve Javie even indicated after seeing it in slow motion that it's a 50/50 block/charge because he had his left foot set and he slid over. Again, it should have never been reviewed if the officials are competent, which they are not.

The NBA head Boragia or whatever his name is said that the officials aren't looking at the feet of players so that's how there could be doubt which triggers a review. Then train the officials enough so they don't miss easy calls. If it's an issue of needing more "eyes" then pony up and get 4-5 officials on the court. The league and teams make enough money nowadays to do this.

And when betting comes online, wtf will happen when you have people sitting in their living rooms, at the games, etc., placing bets and losing if the officials are screwing up. I'm tired of hearing how hard their job is. They make enough money to get criticized the way they do.

Anyway, if Cleveland loses which they likely will now, Lebron may leave, and I can only hope he goes to a team that can beat the Warriors as they are the most tiring team of this generation to watch with their antics. Almost, right up there with the Celtics and Pistons of the 80s.

Kevin Love was checking into the game not checking into a fight.

Heís the definition of a lover and not a fighter

NBA.com
Lead by some guy at Yahoo multiple sources are saying no foul on Kevin Love's part. Meanwhile no word on the flagrant 2 being rescinded on Thompson.

This entire thing was referee sparked and maybe he should be benched for the finals and Javie brought out of retirement.
