Warriors Cruise by Cavs on Durant’s 38 Points

The Golden State Warriors took another bold step Thursday night in their quest to notch the first “fo’, fo’, fo’, fo’” in NBA postseason history, defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers 113-91 in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

A Warriors team that’s nearly perfect on paper was masterful in practice, led by Kevin Durant’s 38 points. He became just the fourth NBA player to score at least 25 points in his first six Finals games. Durant attacked the rim relentlessly all night for Golden State, which entered the series 12-0 this postseason after posting four-game sweeps in each of the previous three rounds. He capitalized on every awkward closeout and missed defensive assignment by Cleveland and tore through the open floor on the break with impunity. He threw down six dunks and racked up 23 points alone before halftime.
