Hello Everyone - It's time for Game 1 of the NBA Finals as the Cleveland Cavaliers travel to Oakland in California to take on the Golden State Warriors.

We are just a few minutes away from the tip-off in the Oracle Arena in a repeat of last season's finals, which Golden State won by 4 games to 2.

Very much a squad game, but the starting fives are in so lets take a look at them starting with the Eastern Conference Champions

CLEVELAND CAVALIERS PG: Kyrie Irving SG: JR Smith SF: LeBron James PF: Kevin Love C: Tristan Thompson

We have John Legend singing the National Anthem at the moment and the player introductions are underway. So let's introduce the Golden State Warriors

GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS PG: Stephen Curry SG: Klay Thompson SF: Harrison Barnes PF: Draymond Green C: Andrew Bogut

So they are the men charged with starting Game One but you can be sure that there will be other names that will have their moment in this potentially seven game series.

Here we go then - Game 1 is underway!!

Draymond Green takes the first shot of the finals and unsurprisingly it is from 3 point range, It doesn't go down and Cleveland respond on their first possession with a Kevin Love 3 pointer. Andrew Bogut gets the first points for Golden State and after a couple of possessions Barnes sinks a bucket and is fouled, adding the extra point as well.

Nice move from Barnes inside for a lay-up for Golden State
