Who is Nayah Damasen, national anthem singer for NBA Finals Game 1?

May JohnsonJun 01, 2018

2015 NBA FinalsBack in June of 2015, no one knew this would become a clash for the ages.

While it has been the same teams for four years, the same can't be said of the players. The Cavaliers had never won an National Basketball Association championship.

"You have two teams here who are both, with their tax, the highest salaried, highest payroll teams in the league", he said.

He missed the ball, and it wound up with Curry, who was now wide open.

Oh no. LeBron James reacts to a call late in regulation.

Here's how our experts see the series playing out. The fans that packed Oracle Arena went home happy.

Will the Cavaliers have a better chance in the NBA Finals 2018 if Kyrie Irving is still in Cleveland? The difference was the Warriors bench, which outscored Cleveland 34-9.

Curry exploded in the second half of Golden State's Game 7 win at Houston Monday.

China to reduce import tariffs to boost trade
China responded by targeting $50 billion in US products, including soybeans-a shot at Trump supporters in America's heartland. It comes as the two countries work to avoid a trade war after the tough-talk and tariff escalations last month.

The Warriors scored on their first possession of overtime when Durant drew a foul from Hill that upset James once again and never looked back, outscoring Cleveland 17-7 in the extra session. So smooth with the 1-2-3. The move paid off. Golden State went on to win the next two games and claimed their first championship since 1975. They decided James wasn't and changed their original call.

But a amusing thing happened when Game 1 tipped off.

The Golden State Warriors will continue to be without forward Andre Iguodala during Game 1 of the NBA Finals, the team announced Wednesday. And James' 51 points were ultimately in vain. The guys were split with Dennis going with the Warriors in 5 and Keith taking the Cavaliers in 6.

Smith said if he thought the Cavs were leading the game, he would have held onto the ball and waited for the Warriors to foul him.

The extra session was all Golden State.

"I mean, it may not be as suspenseful as a lot of people want it to be or as drama-filled", Durant said, "but that's what you've got movies and music for". The city of Cleveland celebrated its first major sports championship in 52 years. They will shoot slightly better than this in the Finals. 2017 NBA FinalsThis was a historic rematch.

James could vault into second place on the NBA Finals' career lists for points and assists. That will be the focus of our series keys - of course, with the focus still being on Golden State. Cleveland had only lost one to reach the Finals.
