Kurtenbach: The simple truth behind the Warriors' Game 1 win

Thompson, who had struggled some in Golden State's conference semifinal series against New Orleans, finished with 28 points, and Curry had 18 points and eight assists. James Harden came out of the gates knocking down 3-pointers and getting into the lane at will. Kevin Durant also arrived in Houston ready to play, knocking down mid-rangers left and right.

Add in the fact that the Rockets showed little to no mental fortitude in Game 1 and things could get explosive real fast.

But unlike Paddy Power, which was on the hook for an additional $4.96 million when Donald Trump upset Clinton, the Golden Nugget won't pay out a penny if the Rockets upset the Warriors. "They are always in the game with 3-point shots". The Warriors took control with a 1-0 lead of a playoff series that seemed inevitable since last summer.

Game Two will be Wednesday night in Houston. "I think our guys, they are taking the challenge and they're embracing it".

It didn't take long for the action to pick up in the first half, as Draymond Green was hit with a technical foul just a minute into the game for shoving James Harden.

The Celtics held LeBron James to 15 points on five-of-16 shooting in their blowout game-one victory over the Cavaliers.

D'Antoni was asked if he thinks the Warriors have seen a team as talented and unsafe as the Rockets are this season.

Chris Paul didn't have a bad game with 23 points and 11 rebounds.

Just as he did in leading the Warriors to an National Basketball Association title with a Finals MVP, Kevin Durant finished with a team-leading 37 points while shooting 14-of-27 from the field and 3-of-6 from 3-point range. The scheduled tip-off is for 8 p.m. CDT.

Curry returned from almost six months sidelined with a sprained left knee to play the final four games of a five-game semifinal series against New Orleans.

Durant scored from all over the floor Monday, totalling 37 points. Green led all players with nine helpers in the game.

The 65-win Houston Rockets, proud owners of the best record in the NBA this season, are being treated like a national joke after one loss.

D'Antoni believes the 6-foot-10 Capela's ability to switch on guards as well as defend in the paint will be a key in this series.

Let's hope that it's not the case and we've got nothing to worry about.
