Amazon's Alexa thinks the NBA Finals are one big joke

His answer consisted all of two syllables.

The Warriors, meanwhile tied the record for least turnovers in an NBA Finals game with four and made Cleveland pay for it, as Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry went to work against an nearly non-existent defensive effort.

Amusing thing is for Cleveland, the Cavs had the answer they needed to just that three months ago in Andrew Bogut.

After a Cavaliers turnover, Durant buried a heavily-contested 26-foot three-pointer from the left wing.

Stephen Curry scored 28 points, hitting 6 three-pointers, and had 10 assists in the Golden State Warriors' victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Gam.

I was impressed by LeBron James' candor and after his Los Angeles home was tagged with a racial slur earlier this week. "It is what it is". And just for good measure, Klay Thompson made a decision to wake up, adding 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting. "But that's what stands out".

ABOUT THE CAVALIERS (63-33 SU, 44-48-4 ATS, 56-39-1 O/U): Cleveland imported talent during the regular season in an effort to get James the help he desired but point guard Deron Williams, shooting guard Kyle Korver and power forward Derrick Williams combined to go scoreless on 0-of-9 shooting off the bench in Game 1. "I mean, you don't step over a grown man". Their first half was far from ideal, going into the break with only an eight point lead, while Draymond Green, ever present on defence didn't score a point till the end of the third quarter. In last year's Finals, he logged a similar stat line in Game 1, scoring just three points on 1-for-3 shooting in a loss, before bouncing back to score in double digits in Games 3-7.

"Last year's playoffs felt like a war every game".

Both teams are aware of the skill level they both possess and, aside from the tension, have actually had fairly high praise for each other. This just may be the best NBA Finals ever played. But he was a non-factor in Game 1, failing to score and getting just four rebounds.

Warriors forward and Michigan State product Draymond Green is a two-time NBA All-Star, an NBA champion, an Olympic gold medalist and a two-time All-Defensive first teamer.

Often times in sports, we say that certain players or teams played in the wrong era.

James (28 points, 15 rebounds), Kevin Love (15 points, 21 rebounds) and Kyrie Irving (24 points) put up big numbers for Cleveland in the opener. He had eight turnovers and was a major part of their defensive struggles.

Can the Cavs answer Durant? "Those things doesn't bother me", James said. "He's going to do what he does". You could start with the impact it will have on LeBron James' historic National Basketball Association career, or you could start with Stephen Curry's search for finals redemption.

"It just speaks volumes to who he is as a player". The only thing that kept Cleveland in the game in the first half was the usually brilliant play from James and Irving and several missed layups by Golden State. That's just our whole mindset. I think the Cavs on Sunday will make a pointed emphasis to not letting him get so many easy attempts around the rim. First and foremost, then make sure Golden State's sharpshooters have a hand in their face. Tonight he shot eight free throws, which is huge. That's huge for us. "We're real tough to beat when he's doing that". "We have to play with pace", Lue said. "He was awesome tonight, and I expect nothing less in the rest of the games".
