Regardless of whether fans are exhausted of seeing the Cavs and Warriors in the Finals again or not, King James says each squad earned its right to the NBA's grandest stage - as evidenced by each of the teams' gritty Game 7 wins in their respective Conference Finals.
Just prior to OT, James jawed with both Curry and Klay Thompson, then Tristan Thompson and Draymond Green tangled moments later and made contact.
The play came with about 30 seconds left and the Cavaliers leading 104-102 after James converted a three-point play as part of a 51-point night.
Next was George Hill missing a free throw that would have given the Cavs the lead with 4 seconds left.
"He thought it was over. He thought we were up one", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said. "Outside the United States, this is the number one country that's following the National Basketball Association, with 6.7 million on their Facebook page", said Bowen.
Yet Smith insisted he knew the score. "On the flipside, you have Cleveland, who takes on the role of 'us against the world.' Who's gonna step with LeBron James?".
Steph Curry led Golden State, which will host Game 2 on Monday (Philippine time), with 29 points, six rebounds, nine assists, and one steal.

"I always go for the team that won before will win again, until someone takes it from them", said Bowen.
For the fourth year in a row, Golden State will hold the home-court advantage in the Finals, this time despite finishing second in the Western Conference to Houston in the regular season. "Clearly that wasn't the case". Smith got the rebound, and ran away from the basket.
Instead, OT. And why not? And it still wasn't enough for LeBron James in Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals.
"I can't talk about a situation that way because I do some dumb stuff on the court", Durant said of how the fourth quarter finished.
The best-of-seven series against the Cleveland Cavaliers begins Thursday night (8 ET, ABC).
One thing that did not go the Cavs' way was a blocking call on James, which officials initially ruled as a charge against Warriors forward Kevin Durant with the change of decision allowing Golden State to tie the game in the final minute.
LeBron James' sensational postseason this year has carried his team to this point but there will need to be a much more collective effort against the Warriors.
