The Golden State Warriors got off to a tremendous start in the 2017 NBA Finals, as they used a big third quarter to blow open Game 1, which they eventually won, 113-90.
Kevin Durant went for 38, Steph Curry added 28, and they forced 20 Cavaliers turnovers as they just generally had their way.
There was one bad moment for the Dubs, however, but it didn’t come courtesy of the Cavaliers, but rather the referees.
No, they weren’t burned by a bad call or anything.
Instead, during a stoppage of play, one of Thursday night’s refs tried to toss the ball to his referee buddy, but instead ended up popping Steph Curry right in the mush.

Don’t worry though, Warriors fans. Steph was just fine, and should go right back to torching the Cavs from downtown in Game 2 per Jack Maloney [CBS Sport].
