Kyrie Irving is fouled and earns the first trip to the free throw line for Cleveland and he sinks both. Harrison Barnes has started like a house on fire for Golden State and he nets another to put the Warriors ahead again.

JR Smith loses possession as he bounces the ball of his foot and after a wrestle on the floor the Cavs fail to get a shot away in the 24 seconds allowed. Golden State come right back and Curry makes his first contribution with a lovely three point shot. Cleveland take a time out

GOLDEN STATE 14 CLEVELAND 9 with 7:26 to go in Q1

Crowd getting into this as GSW produce an Alley-Oop play but Cleveland come back with 4 straight points, forcing Warriors coach Steve Kerr to call his first timeout of the night.

GOLDEN STATE 16 CLEVELAND 15 with 5:50 remaining in Q1

Andre Iguodala was the Finals MVP last time and he is off the bench and starring again latching onto a delightful pass and dunking spectacularly

Draymond Green sinks a three pointer for GSW as does Curry and Golden State are easing into a lead in this 1st quarter.

Great defensive play by Green for GSW and Cleveland are in a bit of a pickle as a breakdown in communication sees a 2nd shot clock violation of the night.

LeBron looks like he wants to take charge of things for the Cavs and he drives into the lane and sinks a bucket but the Warriors come right back to maintain the 7 point lead. Tyronn Lue calls another Cleveland time out to talk things over.

GOLDEN STATE 26 CLEVELAND 19 with 1:46 left in Q1
