Defending champions Golden State Warriors took a 1-0 lead in the NBA finals with a 124-114 overtime win against Cleveland Cavaliers, despite a 51-point haul from LeBron James.
In a controversial match, Stephen Curry scored 29 points for Golden State at Oracle Arena in Oakland.
It is the fourth year in a row that the Warriors have beaten the Cavaliers in the first game of the finals.
Game two in the best-of-seven series takes place in Oakland on Sunday night.
James, playing in his eighth successive finals, claimed his best play-off points haul – and the highest since Michael Jordan scored 55 in 1993.
