The Golden State Warriors opened the NBA finals with an impressive victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Warriors are still undefeated in the postseason, as they extended their perfect run to 13-0 in these playoffs.

Durant was unstoppable

Both teams were nervous in the opening minutes of the game, as J.R. Smith scored the first basket after 90 seconds of play. That was the only field goal made by Smith in the game.

The turnovers made the huge difference in this game. The Warriors committed just one turnover in the first half and it was an offensive foul by Draymond Green. Meanwhile, Cleveland turned the ball over 12 times by the end of the first half. The home team finished the game with 31 assists and only four turnovers, while the Cavs had 15 assists and 20 turnovers. Furthermore, the Warriors took 20 shots more than Cleveland.

Kevin Durant played one of the best playoff games of his career. Durant scored 38 points in 37 minutes, while shooting 14 of 26 from the field, three of six from downtown and seven of eight from the free throw line. Durant also had eight rebounds and eight assists, as he didn't commit a single turnover in the game. Stephen Curry added 28 points, six rebounds, ten assists and three steals, as he shot 11 of 22 from the field and six of 11 from the three point line.

Draymond Green had nine points and 11 rebounds in 36 minutes on the floor.

Klay Thompson is still finding his offensive rhythm in these playoffs. Klay made just three of his 16 field goal attempts, while missing all of his five three point shots. He finished the game with just six points, but it didn't hurt his team at all. However, Thompson is one of the most important guys for the Warriors at the defensive end, so his contribution is much more than just shooting.

Tough night for LeBron and company

LeBron James led the Cavaliers with 28 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists, while shooting nine of 20 from the field, two of six from the outside and eight of 12 from the free throw line. James also had eight turnovers in the game. Kevin Love added a double-double for the visitors with 15 points and 21 rebounds, but he made only four of his 13 field goal attempts.

Kyrie Irving was the only other player for the Cavs to score in double-digits, as he scored 21 points in 34 minutes on the floor.

The next game is on the schedule for Sunday, at 8:00 pm, in Oakland, as the Cleveland Cavaliers will try to tie up the series and try to avoid a 2-0 hole.
