Cleveland – Golden State

We’re going to follow this to the end. 96-96, 1:16 left, Cleveland ball. James to Mozgov, a big miss. Warriors, Curry scores, GS by 2. Mozgov fouled, shooting 2. Drains both of them, tied at 98. Time out, Warriors.

You had to think Cleveland would have a tough time on the road in Game 1.

31.9 left. GS inbounds. Curry drives, Irving BLOCKS Curry’s shot from behind! Cleveland ball, 24.1 left. The Cavaliers can take it down to the end if they so choose.

James takes a wild jumper, miss! Shumpert rebounds, falling away, miss! We’re going to OT! 

Just what you wanted, America.

The overtime isn’t worth following. Kylie Irving is injured and limping around, J.R. Smith is throwing up bricks along with the rest of the Cavaliers. James isn’t hitting jumpers, Cleveland has nothing left. They’ve missed their last 12 shots. The Cavaliers big concern has to be Irving. Watching James go to the locker room, he had to realize guys who talk big game, like J.R. Smith, have nothing. He seized up in this game, just when you really need a guy like that to show up. 

If I’m Golden State, you have to realize you won an overtime where the other team scored two points. You were not awesome. Steph Curry shooting free throws won them this game. For the most part, they seized up too.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
