A Game 1 message was certainly sent by the Golden State Warriors.
They routed the Cavaliers and will look to take a 2-0 series lead before heading back to Cleveland.
Despite having Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving along side of him this time around, it was the same story for the Cavaliers.
Cleveland trailed for the entire first half and when they took a brief lead in the 3rd quarter, the Warriors turned it up a couple notches. The Cavaliers defense continued to break down and they were forced into some tough shots as the Warriors pulled ahead and never looked back.
The Cleveland bench was the main reason for the loss.
The Cavaliers bench produced just 10 points total and nobody scored over 3 points. A bench that has been so productive on both ends of the floor didn’t show up at all as they took careless shots and continued to turn the ball over.
Golden State Warriors
Golden State didn’t get as much rest as the Cavaliers because of their 3-1 deficit to the Thunder, but that didn’t show in Game 1.
However, it wasn’t Steph Curry or Klay Thompson or even Draymond Green who beat Cleveland. Shaun Livingston, Andre Iguodala, and Leandro Barbosa all dominated off the bench and changed the whole complexion of the game late in the 3rd and early in the 4th.
Thompson and Curry combined for just 20 points total, which was the lowest combined between the two.
The Warriors will still obviously need those two to get hot at some point in this series. Lebron James on Curry for a majority of the 2nd half and wouldn’t allow the shooter to get any sort of room to work with.
Look for Golden State to still try to expose the Cavaliers on the inside, as Bogut and Green really had their way in the paint.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
Cleveland looked very sloppy on both ends of the floor in Game 1.
JR Smith fell on his hand and was completely taken out of the game. He is such a big key for Cleveland and his status is important for Game 2.
