In Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Golden State Warriors extended their streak to 13 wins in a row, as they handed the Cavaliers a 113-91 loss, according to The New York Times.

With the sting of last year's NBA Finals collapse still fresh in his mind, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry said he and his team would not be celebrating until they delivered a championship back to Oakland.

This is, of course, because the Warriors can roll out a two-man combo of Kevin Durant and Steph Curry and get a good shot every trip down the floor. After that the Warriors did not look back, they went on to sweep the Utah Jazz in the conference semi-finals, then the San Antonio Spurs in the conference finals. He appears perfectly content serving as a secondary option on one of the best National Basketball Association teams ever and winning titles. Kerr may return for Game 2Warriors' Game 1 victory a one-sided affairCurry: Our defense picked up our offenseHow can the Cavs bounce back?sc Albeit with a degree of sarcasm. "Steve just said it to our guys at the end of the game: We had a formula, and our guys did a nice job trying to follow it".

Cleveland has lost the opener in the Finals to Golden State for three straight years but did rally to win the championship in seven games last year.

"They're the best I've ever seen", he said.

"No other team has done this, right?" "So definitely a lot of things we can correct and get better at".

The Warriors committed four turnovers, their lowest total through 13 games this postseason as well as the entirety of the 82-game regular season.

The highly-anticipated meeting between the defending champion Cavaliers and the top-seeded Warriors did not disappoint initially, with sensational dunks by LeBron James and Durant during a see-sawing first quarter.

There are no easy answers for the Cavs, and their defense is weaker than previous year, while the Warriors added even another gear to their offense.

"We made a lot of mistakes". Durant posted a line of 38-8-8 in his first Finals game with the Warriors. It meant he didn't get to pad his already illustrious playoff record of 22-3 when he scores 30 points or more, something I brought up as he walked through the Oracle Arena hallways long after the game.

The Cavs, who have to play ideal basketball to beat the Warriors, did not play flawless basketball last night in Game 1, so they did not beat the Warriors. "I'm sure LeBron probably thinks he could play better, and you tip your hat off to KD". Said Durant, "That's all this is about".
