Cavaliers big man Tristan Thompson avoids suspension

The Cavaliers were able to keep it close in the third quarter, with James netting 12 points in the frame.

- Was J.R. Smith high?

The decision is a relief for Thompson and the Cavaliers, as there were fears the big man could be suspended for pushing a ball against Warriors' forward Draymond Green late in the Warriors' 124-114 win, causing a brief kerfuffle between the two teams. Thompson contested the shot, but his elbow appeared to connect with the right side of Livingston's chest, though replays called into question whether Thompson made contact.

"He thought it was over".

Coach Tyronn Lue said after the game that Smith though the Cavs were ahead, although Smith said he knew the game was tied and was waiting for a timeout to be called.

"I mean, it may not be as suspenseful as a lot of people want it to be or as drama-filled", Durant said, "but that's what you've got movies and music for".

"It was epic", Lue said "He did enough to carry this team to a victory". While they remained fairly calm and collected, you can tell LeBron himself is both furious and disappointed with how the game went down.

"I don't think none of us are demoralized", Hill said. "But clearly that wasn't the case".

However, in comparison to James' display Thursday, Durant was disappointing as Stephen A. unloaded on the former Oklahoma City Thunder star for not replicating his performances from last year's NBA Finals and needing luck to win against a heavy underdog team. "And I dealt with that last night", he said.

James also injured his leg in the prior series during the Eastern Conference Finals, but did not miss any time.

James shot 19 for 32 to go with eight assists and eight rebounds in the opener of his eighth straight NBA Finals and ninth overall, as well as Cavs-Warriors Take IV. "Now, we have to move on". "This game is over and done with". But James was given a foul following a review with 36.4 seconds left and Kevin Durant converted a pair of free throws to tie it at 104.

"I read that play as well as I've read any play in my career, maybe in my life", James said.

In the final seconds, Green waved bye to Tristan Thompson after a foul and had the ball shoved in his face as players gathered to keep the two apart as Thompson was ejected and tempers were tested. When doing so, they can view if the defender was in a legal guarding position.

Lue was disgusted to lose this way, saying of the overturned call: "It's never been done, ever in the history of the game".

"To do what he did tonight and come out robbed, it's just not right".

"We just left a rest stop!"

Curry, meanwhile, contributed 29 points and six rebounds.

"When you have LeBron, it's not just him, it's Kevin Durant on the floor too".
