Sports Illustrated's best pictures from the Golden State Warriors' 108-100 overtime victory over Cleveland in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

June 05, 2015

With Game 1 of the NBA Finals in the books, here are SI's best pictures from the Golden State Warriors' 108-100 overtime victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Photographers John W. McDonough and Greg Nelson were on the scene for SI, along with a soldout crowd of 19,596 at ORACLE Arena in Oakland. 

The Warriors had a chance to win the game in regulation but Kyrie Irving made a quick recovery after Steph Curry dribbled by him and caught up in time to block a would-be layup. (Click here for full-size version of the gallery that appears below.)
