And Game 1 delivered. Yes, it was sloppy. Yes, two of the best offensive teams in NBA history struggled to score.
But it was exciting. It was thrilling. There was an ejection. There was a clutch Steph Curry shot. There was a post-game back-and-forth between James Harden and Draymond Green. And, of course, there was Kevin Durant.
Ultimately, the Warriors did the two most important things: They won Game 1, and they managed to not have Curry or Klay Thompson aggravate their ankles.
I’m back with another episode of Wake Up With the Warriors, a quick recap of the game. This one ran a little long - about 20 minutes - so hopefully you have a 20-minute commute on Monday morning!
