As the defending champion Golden State Warriors face the Cleveland Cavaliers for a record fourth straight NBA Finals, basketball fans seem to know everything there is to know about these two teams.

Love suffered a concussion Friday in Game 6 of the conference finals and missed Game 7 against the Celtics.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he was pleased to see Love cleared for Game 1. It started after LeBron James converted a three-point play to give Cleveland a 104-102 lead with 50 seconds left. For the fourth year in a row, we're getting a matchup between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors. Although Andre Iguodala missed Game 1, there's still an outrageous amount of weapons on the Warriors' roster. While James was clearly outside the restricted area, officials also had the chance to review whether James was in legal guarding position and changed the call to a block because they determined he turned his body and moved into Durant.

"I can't sit here right now and say that the Finals were a part of my thinking, it was not", he said.

The surprise isn't that Golden State will win again.

"You've just got to stay locked in".

"Forty-eight minutes, it lasts a long time and there's so many opportunities to get yourself going as a team".

"I read that play as well as I've read any play in my career, maybe in my life", James said. From there, it was game on, as the two teams went back and forth, trading burst after burst until an absurd final few possessions.
