Game 1 - The Warriors take no prisoners
LeBron and Kevin Love totally dominated the boards, but to no avail. Durant and Curry shot the lights out and, it turns out, that's more important.
All snark aside, the real difference in the game was this: the Warriors had four turnovers while the Cavs had twenty. That kind of differential is difficult to overcome. LeBron alone had twice as many turnovers as the entire Warriors team. In stark contrast, Durant played 38 minutes with no turnovers and only one foul, on his way to 38 points.
