4 seconds to go warriors shoot to avoid shot clock violation...Thompson gets mad about it, Draymon talks crap, Thompson kinda girly pushes near his face and gets ejected. A bunch of nothing really.

Great game!

Cavs blew a chance to win it in regulation with Hill's missed free throw and JR's mental lapse when he got the offensive rebound...

This is a learning experience. The Cavs showed admirable heart in this one and will likely be without Thompson in Game 2, so it's key that they hone in on what they did right and make the adjustments necessary to counter in Game 2...

Cavs may have blown their shot. Warriors win game 2 and itís probably over.

So much effort and so close, but not enough because of silly mistakes. Devastating. That win would have been huge for them.
OT was a mess

eh, the Cavs shooters should hit their 3s at home. As long as they don't blow one of their home games, I wouldn't count them out of a game 7 situation. But this is also Oakland's first time seeing the new lineup, so maybe Golden State wins game 2 by a wider margin.

That was then followed up with a very questionable blocking call on James (which was originally called a charge on Durant). And another bogus reach in on Hill after a clean strip of Durant in OT.

But I guess everything potentially could have been avoided if Hill made the second free throw with four seconds left, and if Smith had kept track of the score.

About the same as the refs handing golden state the game. Refs don't make BS calls and neither of those plays matter. Golden State needs Durant and the refs to beat Lebron.

Durant was like 8-22 he probably won’t shoot so badly next game.

There wouldn't be no Smith or Hill if Tony Brothers would've stuck with the charge call, which it was a charge. LeBron had beaten him, he was in legal position and he was outside the restricted area. Tony Brothers is the worst ref in the NBA, I've seen a lot of games he officiated and he's always been horrible.
