Warriors vs. Cavaliers, Game 2

OAKLAND, Calif. - JR Smith admitted Saturday that he was not aware of the score at the end of regulation in the Cleveland Cavaliers' 124-114 overtime loss in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, but said he won't let the mistake affect his play in Game 2.

James, who was playing with blurry vision in one eye after being poked during Game 1, concurs and said he didn't think he needed to say anything to Smith.

Thompson said he is in more pain: "It's not good".

"They guys' confidence is not shaken". But officials went to the replay to see if James was in the restricted area, which would make it a block.

Everyone is still trying to figure out what went on in the final minute of regulation in Game 1.

Cleveland held a two-point lead with 36.4 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter when Kevin Durant was called for a charge on James. James might be the greatest player of all time - the ball should be in his hands as much as possible.

"We've been through this too many times".

The US move has also invited strong criticism from China which retaliated by imposing its own tariffs on imported US goods. Trump said on Friday he might prefer to end NAFTA in favour of two bilateral agreements with the two USA neighbours.

Then the game really went off the rails when George Hill got fouled with 4.6 seconds left and the Cavs trailing by one. That hasn't stopped team doctors from deeming him questionable for Game Two of the NBA Finals.

"Uh, I might have said that", Smith said.

"I don't know why I got thrown out", Cleveland's Thompson said after the loss. So to have that much love in the room for how I play basketball, that's cool. So for me, it sucked, it was one of the worst feelings ever. "It happens. I've just got to move on". We blew our chance, blew our opportunity. Can the Cavaliers put Game 1 in the rear view mirror? James was yelling at Smith - with the image becoming a meme - as he continued to dribble and then appeared to say, "I thought we were up". "I mean, it's like the unspoken rule in the NBA: If you're up 10 or 11 with about 20 seconds left, you don't take that shot". At the end of the day, I want to be out there with my teammates, and I'll be able to do that in Game 2.

James can't be surprised, given that he and Smith have known each other for years and were on the Cavs' team that won the championship two years ago. It shouldn't be a prom dance.

"I might have said that", Smith said. "The NBA got to do what they got to do in terms of fining". That's always the challenge when you play a great player. "He did that last night and he's got to keep it up".

Golden State's Kevin Durant has yet to hit his stride in the playoffs. He's a small shooting guard who can't guard anybody. Not to say the Cavs will beat the Warriors.

"The game is over - we can't do anything about it", Lue said. He's piling up his assists in this must-win game. The games will also be available for live streaming on the ESPN app. How can the Cavs bounce back and take Game 2?
