Game 2 is Sunday night in Oakland, Calif.

In a league announcement, NBA Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Kiki VanDeWeghe explained the fine was because Thompson failed "to leave the court in a timely manner following his ejection and for shoving the basketball in the face" of Warriors forward Draymond Green.

"You don't like to see the chippiness".

"I think you get down to the mindset of the two teams".

The Warriors are going to need to have Thompson as close to 100 percent on Sunday to get a victory and take a 2-0 series lead heading back to Cleveland. "I never give up on any of my players, any of my teammates".

James appeared to draw a charge on Durant. Cavs fans will likely admit that James was moving on the play, but it's a call that shouldn't have been reviewed in the first place. Curry sweetly made a joke about something like "c'mon man let me have that one" and Bron said "get out of my face".

It seems Bryant was talking about Smith's missed opportunity, or he could have been talking about Hill missing his second free throw.

Coach Tyronn Lue said after the game that Smith though the Cavs were ahead, although Smith said he knew the game was tied and was waiting for a timeout to be called.

"We usually run it out but their policy has been shoot the ball", Lue said.

"Steph was trying to make a joke like "hey, everything is alright, we're buddies, it's no big deal". That last play is over, it's behind us, and now we've got to move on". "He showed his team on the biggest stage how you have to play to beat this team and he did a great job of that". On May 31, 2011, in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, he scored 24 points while recording 9 rebounds and 5 assists for the Miami Heat in a 92-84 win over the Dallas Mavericks. Me not hitting the free throw, I feel like cost our team the win. And I dealt with that last night.

"Everyone in this locker room felt we gave this one away and we missed the opportunity", he told reporters.

"We threw everything we had at him", said Pistons point guard Chauncey Billups after the game. It was one of the worst feelings ever. "So that helps", Thompson said.

Andre Iguodala remains doubtful as he tries to recover from a bone bruise in his left knee that has sidelined him for the past five games. Either way, the Cavaliers must do what the Lakers legend said in his tweet, and move on before Game 2 arrives. "I made the contest and next thing I know I was being kicked out for making a contest we learn in training camp".
