Curry throws shade at Rihanna when asked if Warriors play her music

Because what else was there to do when Durant was nearly single-handedly destroying the Cavs, and RiRi's beloved King James? "You do those three things we're really, really hard to score on".

Let's see what happened.

"So if we limit them to one shot per possession, we can control the pace a lot better and honestly still play at a high tempo", Cleveland's Kyrie Irving said. "We can't play in between". With the result being what it is, do you now have to play differently?

James: I don't know.

In the first part of the clip below, you can hear someone yelling "Brick!" before Durant shot his free throw, and see the player staring them down afterwards. The game is too fresh. And if Klay Thompson breaks out of his scoring slump, the Cavs could be in for another long night.

Powered by 38 points from Kevin Durant and 28 from Stephen Curry, the Golden State Warriors ripped Cleveland 113-91 in Thursday's opener of the best-of-seven championship series, aided by 20 Cavaliers turnovers to only four for the hosts. And I thought last game we weren't as physical as we needed to be.

"It gives us a lot of confidence", Love said. The Cavs were the best three point shooting team of all time, breaking the record for three pointers made in a season.

James: I always feel good. But all eyes were on the superstar and noted LeBron James fan Rihanna, as she strolled in a few minutes late, completely shifting commentator Jeff Van Gundy's focus. Is that stuck in your head? "I wouldn't do my teammates any good if I wasn't just enjoying the moment". "If I score six points a game and it gets us four wins and an National Basketball Association championship, I can do that every year".

Another team that got steamrolled the way the Cavaliers did in a 22-point Game 1 loss Thursday night might be fighting creeping self-doubt heading into Game 2 tonight at Oracle Arena.

Q: And you still lost by 19. We're going to seek him out, get him the ball, and guys got to defend him. That's what they do.

The Cavaliers, after losing Game 1, are not going to hit the panic button so early.

"I think that's how Cleveland is going to approach it, make it a physical game", Michael Cooper, now the coach of the WNBA's Atlanta Dream who went through some Lakers-Celtics battles as a player in the 1980s, said before the series began.

That's when things really got ugly. "There were open opportunities". "We would win. We just gotta worry about us, understand that no matter what they do, if we do what we're supposed to do, they can't beat us". Not as much freedom of movement at the point of attack. "So we want to be that team". "That's something that I imagine Ty probably talked about (with the media) and we can definitely do a better job of". He had three offensive boards, but the Warriors had 14 of their own. "They got one guy who keeps kicking people in the nuts", Smith said. "You guys asked me 'What was the difference?" "It might be an adjustment for me, but it's for the betterment of the team and I am willing to do it", he told reporters. Several teams have challenged them, and they have failed. "You just can't forecast that".

"We'll be keyed up and ready to go for Sunday".

James: Alright, so that answers your question. It's never about how you get knocked down.
