Terrorized and panic struck Warriors could have easily lost the encounter but they managed to sneak in with a 124 – 114 point victory.
Close encounters tend to have some or the other controversy. This one wasn’t devoid of it. Before the game went to overtime there was this charge call on Kevin Durant that was reversed. It was climacteric and has become a highly debatable event.
1st half was congenial as both teams shot over 50% from the field. Even Stevens at the break discarding Cavs from lead with a deep 3 pointer by Steph Curry. Warriors seemed to take over in the third quarter but LeBron James had other ideas. He finished with 51 points comprising 8 rebounds, 8 assists unfortunately for a losing cause.
The thrilling climax saw multiple baskets close to the end which made it intense and nerve wracking for both sides. Warriors get the better of Cavs just when it mattered. Steph Curry led the Warriors with 29 points.
