CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cavs fans woke up Friday a little disappointed but still hopeful after the Cavaliers fell to the Warriors 100-108 in overtime Thursday night in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
Kyrie Irving had 23 points for the Cavs but limped off the court with about 2 minutes left in OT. Irving looked to be in a lot pain heading to the locker room, throwing his jersey to the ground in frustration.
LeBron James had his highest point total ever in the finals, but missed a jumper with about 3 seconds left in regulation that could’ve won it.
“I’m a little disappointed, but I think they can pull through,” said one fan after a watch party at the Q. “They should have made a couple more shots and played a little harder defense.”
“I felt as though there were a lot of missed called fouls for the Cavs, and I know we’re going to come back on the second game, and I say ‘Go Cavs’,” said another fan. “This is our year.”
