The NBA has fined Tristan Thompson $25,000 for his involvement in the skirmish in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, the league announced.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James reacts to a call during the second half of Game 1 of basketball's NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cavaliers in Oakland, Calif., Thursday, May 31, 2018. If you're up by 10 or 11 with about 20 seconds left, you don't take that shot. "I made the contest, and next thing I know I was being kicked out for making a contest that we learn in training camp".

James answered inside but Curry drove for a layup, got fouled by Love and sank the free throw for a 107-106 Golden State lead with 23.5 seconds in regulation time.

The Warriors missed the defensive presence of 2015 NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala, who missed his fifth straight postseason game dealing with a bone bruise in his left knee.

While Smith denied losing track of the score against the Warriors, Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue wasn't buying it.

"To do what he did tonight and come out robbed, it's just not right", Lue said. "It's never been done, ever, in the history of the game".


Thompson still faces a possible suspension from Game 2 of the NBA Finals, which is set for Sunday, June 3, for the fight after his ejection. "I mean, he's great on the [offensive] boards". He always causes us a problem with that. While they remained fairly calm and collected, you can tell LeBron himself is both furious and disappointed with how the game went down. "So we've been doing that all year, since I've been here, too".

Regarding the ball-to-the-face move, Klay wasn't impressed.

One NewsOne reader shared another meme with us in what is bound to be an endless stream of artistic endeavors. "You don't do that when two people are just talking". "That's not the way to play".

While Thompson walked in the vicinity of Draymond Green, the Warriors' brash forward began clapping and taunting Thompson. I knew he was late on the drive, and I knew I had my man beat and he came over a little late. Green was seen mimicking a cheerleader waving pompoms to mock Perkins, who was screaming toward the Warriors' side of the court. "And that's something that I pride myself on - Tristan does, Kevin (does) - on creating more opportunities for us". "I'm sure you guys (the media) counted us out". So I knew once it was 30 seconds to go that they could review that situation.

When asked about that moment, James said, "This game is over and done with". So, that's what it was. Last year, the Warriors got the best of the Cavs in five games.

Information from ESPN's Chris Haynes and Dave McMenamin was used in this report.
