Amerikan NBA finallerinin California'da yapılan ilk karşılaşmasında Golden State Worriors, Cleavland Cavaliers'yi 113-91 mağlup etti.


Playing in his first Finals game for the Golden State Warriors, Kevin Durant made waves from the second he stepped out onto the court. A string of dunks and quick finishes saw him score 23 points against defending champions the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first half alone.

It was a highly anticipated match, with a first quarter that see-sawed between the two teams. Le Bron James put the Cavaliers ahead with a dunk, then managed to make up a points deficit in the second quarter.

But then their defence started to struggle against the top-seeded Warriors. They went on to hurt themselves with 20 turnovers on the night, tying an NBA record.

Durant finished with 38 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, helping the Warriors through to win 113 to 91.

Durant sunk a three-pointer as soon as the second half started.
