But for now, I'm Stephen Clark signing off. Thanks for reading and see you all again soon.

So that is Game 1 in the books. We will have the remainder of the series live here on bytheminute.co and Alex Catto will be here with that one on Sunday night/Monday morning.

FINAL SCORE GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS 104 CLEVELAND CAVALIERS 89

A dominant performance from the Golden State Warriors who rely heavily on their bench to see off the Cleveland Cavaliers and go 1-0 up in the seven game series.

BALL GAME!!

ESPN just saying that the bench scoring is 45-9 in favour of the Warriors. What a difference that has made to the game tonight and has been crucial with the Splash Brothers barely making a ripple.

Going through the motions now and the Cavs pull the starters from the game as they admit defeat in Game 1. Time for them to regroup and plan for Game 2 on Sunday.

TIMEOUT CLEVELAND GOLDEN STATE 104 CLEVELAND 87 with 2:24 remaining

Hits both free throws and then steals the ball at the other end. However James loses the ball to curry and he hits a 3 pointer to bring up the Warriors century. And then Thompson hits one as well to get the party started in the Oracle Arena.

Livingston at the line again for the Warriors. Hits both to stop the rot but Irving is fouled at the other end and will have the opportunity to keep the Cavs in this one.
