Cleveland take an early timeout. They just can't get close to a misfiring Warriors team. Worrying signs early in the series, but a hell of a long way to go.

GOLDEN STATE 56 CLEVELAND 45 with 10:03 left in Q3

Cavs getting a little upset at the officials as James is called for an offensive foul as he drives into Draymond Green. Love has been called for a couple earlier on as well.

Kyrie Irving has been the main man for the Cavs tonight and he gets in the lane and is fouled as he shoots. Sinks the bucket and the free throw and Cleveland are within 6 points

Seven straight points for Cleveland forces Steve Kerr to call a timeout to allow his Warriors to regroup.

GOLDEN STATE 56 CLEVELAND 52 with 8:03 remaining in Q3

Steve Kerr not happy during the timeout. Smashes a tactical whiteboard with a single punch. It seems to have woken the Warriors up as Iguodala sinks a three to snap the Cavs run.

LeBron strikes back though with a three of his own and Cleveland are hanging in there. Game is heating up as Thompson slips in a lay up and Curry fouls Irving at the other end.

Klay Thompson from a mile away misses by about a mile. The two main men for Golden State have just not fired tonight. Yet the Warriors still lead.

Curry loses the ball trying a fancy pass and he is then smothered by the Cavs defence. Cleveland come away with it and Love drives to the hoop and is fouled as he shoots. Hits the Free throw as well and it's a one point game.
