Both teams waited all year to get back here. But finally, they were. On Thursday night, the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers faced off in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, a re-match of last year's testy matchup.
The game features some of the sport's true professionals, and many of its biggest superstars. It was all set up to be a match for the ages, an epic test of athletic prowess and emotional will. And then, Matthew Dellavedova accidentally grabbed Andre Iguodala in his southern region, and everything went to hell.
The Warriors ended up beating the Cavaliers, 104-89. But whatever.
