Warriors vs. Cavs Game 1 halftime score: Golden State trails Cleveland, 51-48

New, comments

The Warriors look to open up the NBA Finals with a win by playing better against the Cavs in the second half.

Give the Golden State Warriors some credit: after a terrible start to the game, they rallied to tie it with seconds left.

Then a J.R. Smith-like three at the end of the half gave the Cleveland Cavaliers a three-point edge heading into the half.

All things considered, the Warriors are in good position to take this one still. But they have to figure out the rebounding situation and stick with the plan of letting LeBron James be a volume jump shooter even if he continues to score.
