King James rules the court in heroic Game One defeat

Andre Iguodala out for Golden State in Game 1 of NBA Finals

"We understand how hard and how challenging this task is", James told reporters after the game, which marked the fourth consecutive year the teams have met in the Finals.

But Smith believes there are two areas the Cavaliers must match the Warriors in order to win the title.

Some fans tried to point out that Smith's teammate Hill could've saved the game by making the free throw in the first place. The league's average attendance of 17,987 per game in 2017-18 was an all-time high, and the recently completed conference finals were the league's most watched in six years and second-most watched in the past 16 years, according to Nielsen data shared by the National Basketball Association on Wednesday.

During the replay, officials can also look to determine if the defensive player was in a legal guarding position, and they decided James wasn't.

"If you're going to pull this off, you have to hit perimeter shots", Smith said on ESPN show First Take.

The Warriors won only 14 of 32 games this season, playoffs and regular season, in which they lost this quarter. "So when they called the charge, I was surprised, but I'm glad they reviewed it".

Kyrie Irving is undeniably a huge loss for the Cavaliers, especially with Kevin Love failing to live up to expectations as their second-best player.

James answered with an impressive drive, changing hands in midair before scoring to give the Cavs the lead. The Warriors lead the league with 30.2 points, 52% from the field and 43% from three in the third quarter while leading by an average of 4.5 points.

The Warriors said Iguodala, 34, who missed the last four games of the Western Conference finals after suffering a left lateral leg contusion against the Houston Rockets, continues to make progress and will be re-evaluated prior to Game 2.

James finished with 51 points, a playoff career high, eight rebounds and eight assists.

James had his highest-scoring playoff game ever, tied Jerry West for the most 40-point games in a single postseason with eight and nearly single-handedly led the Cavs to the win. Both series took seven games to decide.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue's assessment? We just came up short. He's been doing it for us all season. And then tonight in the finals on the biggest stage, when our team played well, played our (butt) off, man, it ain't right.
