The Latest from the NBA Finals and Thursday’s Game 1 (all times local):

8:50 p.m.

The Golden State Warriors pulled out a 124-114 overtime victory over Cleveland in Game 1 of the NBA Finals after a bizarre ending to regulation.

The game went to OT after Cleveland’s J.R. Smith failed to take the go-ahead shot after a missed free throw Nathan Shepherd Jersey Jets , apparently believing the Cavaliers led by one when it was tied.

The Warriors took advantage of their second chance, opening OT with a 9-0 run to blow it open.

LeBron James‘ highest-scoring postseason game was wasted, as he finished with 51 points.



8:30 p.m.

Cleveland and Golden State are headed to overtime in Game 1 of what is LeBron James’ highest-scoring game ever in the NBA Finals.

George Hill made a free throw with 4.7 seconds to tie the game, but J.R. Smith apparently didn’t realize the game was tied when he grabbed the rebound of the missed second shot. Smith dribbled backward toward midcourt as teammates pointed toward the basket, and the Cavs couldn’t get a potential winning shot off.

James has 49 points.

The teams also went to OT in Game 1 in 2015, with the Warriors pulling out the victory after Kyrie Irving was injured.



8:15 p.m.

The 3-pointers haven’t been falling much in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, but the Warriors got a couple to go to give them a six-point lead heading to the final stretch.

Draymond Green, who had been struggling badly from outside, snapped a 94-all tie with a 3-pointer with a little more than 5 minutes left. Stephen Curry followed with one to give the Warriors a 100-94 advantage.

Curry has five 3-pointers but the Warriors are just 10 for 32 as a team.

LeBron James has 40 points for the Cavaliers.



7:55 p.m.

Golden State tried to throw its third-quarter knockdown punch in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, but Cleveland took it pretty well.

The Warriors lead 84-78 but it appeared it could be worse after they raced to a quick seven-point lead. Cleveland erased that but Golden State spurted away again a bit toward the end of what’s so often been its dominant period.

LeBron James went to the bench for his second break of the game after missing five straight shots in the quarter. He also matched Michael Jordan during the period by reaching 30 points for the 109th time in a postseason game.



7:35 p.m.

JaVale McGee got his chance and is making the most of it.

The center was inserted into the starting lineup in the second half of Game 1 of the NBA Finals and is making an impact on both ends as the Warriors surged into a 66-59 lead.

McGee had played in only nine of Golden State’s 17 games entering the NBA Finals -and only three minutes total in the Western Conference finals- but was sent out with the first unit when the teams returned from the locker rooms.

He played terrific defense on LeBron James on one possession, and later had two baskets to spark another impressive third-quarter start for the Warriors.

.—

7:10 p.m.

Stephen Curry got the Warriors back to even, and now they get ready for their favorite part of the game.

Curry drained a 3-ponter from about 30 feet to beat the halftime buzzer, tying Game 1 of the NBA Finals Thursday night at 56-all. Golden State had trailed by 11 points earlier in the second quarter before a strong finish.

Curry had 18 points, while LeBron James led all scorers with 24.

Now the teams regroup before a quarter the Warriors dominate. They have outscored opponents 519-389 in the postseason Courtland Sutton Jersey Broncos , a difference of 130 points, and turned around both Game 6 and 7 against Houston in the Western Conference finals with huge runs in that period.



7:05 p.m.

LeBron James actually got a rest in the NBA Finals.

After playing all 48 minutes in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals, James sat down midway through the second quarter.

He earned it. James had 20 points on 8-for-9 shooting to carry Cleveland to a 51-45 lead over Golden State.

Kevin Love also is playing well with nine points and Larry Nance Jr. is giving Cleveland a lift off the bench.

But Kevin Durant, the MVP of last year’s NBA Finals, is struggling. He started 2 for 8 for six points, missing all three 3-point attempts. Stephen Curry was keeping the Warriors close with 15 points.



6:40 p.m.

The Cavaliers have the lead but the Warriors appear to have good news.

Klay Thompson returned from the locker room just before the first quarter ended with Cleveland leading 30-29. The All-Star guard missed about half the period after J.R. Smith slid into his left leg while trying to intercept a pass, knocking Thompson to the court.

He got treatment for what the Warriors said was a left lateral leg contusion and returned to the bench to cheers as the period was about to end.

LeBron James had 12 points on 4-for-4 shooting, while Stephen Curry had 11 for the Warriors. Both teams had to be pleased with their starts after falling behind early and having to climb back in their Game 7 victories in the conference finals.



6:30 p.m.

Golden State guard Klay Thompson has gone to the locker room, limping gingerly after J.R. Smith slid hard into the Warriors left leg at the 6:17 mark of the first quarter.

Thompson lay grimacing in pain, slapping his hands on the court immediately after the play. Thompson appeared to injure the same left knee he hurt in the Western Conference finals.

Smith was making a play on the ball when he seemed to unintentionally undercut Thompson, who did return to the Warriors’ bench afte At the start of some practices, Arizona Cardinals coach Steve Wilks calls out the name of one defensive player and one offensive player to go at it one-on-one in front of everyone else.

Once it was left tackle D.J. Humphries against defensive end Chandler Jones. Another time defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche took on right guard Justin Pugh.

"I like it a lot," Humphries said. "It's like old school, Pop Warner stuff."

A week into Wilks' first training camp as an NFL head coach Jaleel Scott Jersey Ravens , an overriding theme has been tough, physical play, especially on the offensive line.

"Really it comes back to my defensive background," Wilks said before the team took the field for another practice in pads Thursday. "There's nothing more demoralizing than having an offense just run the ball. Coming off the ball up front, being physical, it just really takes the air out of you."

While most of the training camp takes place in the air-conditioned comfort of University of Phoenix Stadium 鈥?the Cardinals' regular- season home 鈥?Wilks moved the team outside into the desert heat for practice on Tuesday. They'll be outdoors again Friday.

"Hopefully it's a little hot out there so we can make sure we're locked in and focused," he said.

Wilks believes battling the heat helps build mental toughness.

"It's all about mental with me. These guys have the skill set. They're physical. They work out all the time. They train their bodies. It's about this here," he said, pointing to his head, "and being outside creates that element, particularly in the heat."

Wilks has spent his NFL coaching career on defense, with stints as secondary coach for the Chicago Bears, San Diego Chargers and Carolina Panthers. Last year, he was promoted to defensive coordinator in Carolina and http://www.jaguarsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-dj-chark-jersey , after just one season, was hired to replace the retired Bruce Arians in Arizona.

Arians was all about offense, the big-play "no risk it, no biscuit" approach. Wilks, by contrast, wants a team that runs the ball with authority and a defense that just as naturally stops the run up front.

"We get pretty physical out there," Humphries said. "Our defensive line, both of us know what we're trying to do, what we're trying to get done. It's something that's being preached to us and it's something that we're soaking up and buying into for sure. Most of us it's second nature. We don't have no softies on the O-line. Most of us, it ain't hard to get us going, so it's good fun."

Defensive players appreciate a coach with roots on that side of the ball.

"It's great," said safety Antoine Bethea, a 13-year NFL veteran. "He gets it. Not saying other coaches don't, but him being on the defensive side of the ball the majority of his career http://www.patriotsauthorizedshop.com/authentic-trent-brown-jersey , he just gets what it means to be a defensive player, coming downhill, attacking."

But it's the offensive line that's been singled out for praise by Wilks for its physical approach early in camp.

And the line loves the idea of blowing open holes for David Johnson, one of the NFL's best running backs who returns after missing virtually all of last season with a fractured wrist.

Offensive linemen, in general, love to run block.

"It's different when you're locking a guy up in pass (blocking). You get them frustrated," Humphries said. "But when you block a dude, you pound on him during the run game, you demoralize them. You take their heart. "
