After Game 1 of the NBA Finals, in which the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in overtime, a trash talk precedent may have been set for the rest of the series, though perhaps not as humorous or cunning as some of the stories from Bird and Jordan.
Kerr had also said Thompson was doing better Sunday morning when he checked in with the training staff. If you win a game, you're supposed to.
This was something which James emphasised when talking to the media about the incident, as he said: "We've got to move on".
"They guys' confidence is not shaken".
James is already the career leader in finals 3-pointers with 83, but Stephen Curry is closing fast and only two behind him. Indeed, the Cavs didn't make a shot for nearly five and a half minutes in the second quarter. "He hasn't probably been as consistent as he was previous year, but neither have we", coach Steve Kerr said. The fans in Oakland obliged by facetiously offering their gratitude for JR Smith's snafu at the end of regulation of Game 1.
Hill said he carried the loss with him back to the team hotel after the game.

Zidane plunged his Real Madrid future into doubt this morning by calling a shock press conference for 12pm [BST]. I do not forget the hard times, as well as the good times, and that makes you reflect.
Warriors guard Nick Young got limited playing time Sunday and for good reason. So for me, it sucked, it was one of the worst feelings ever. "I made the contest and next thing I know I was being kicked out for making a contest we learn in training camp".
Smith was asked if he remembered telling an irate LeBron James, "I thought we were ahead", after the clock expired, as it appeared he told James in a camera angle captured by the ABC broadcast of the game. Everybody was just thinking the same way I was. I think people have seen that throughout our postseason runs, where he hasn't played well or played to his ability that he thinks he should have played, and then the next game he comes on and shoots the ball extremely well. "We're right where we want to be, and we're all very confident that we're going to get better from here". It shouldn't be a prom dance. James had a monster game to keep Cleveland in it through, pouring in 51 points to go with eight boards and eight assists.
"From what I saw, he's looking pretty good, pretty happy, pretty upbeat", Curry said.
But in a recent interview, Durant revealed the reason behind his decision to sign with the Warriors during free agency, and it wasn't just because they could be a winning team. They shot 59.5 percent in the first half despite going 6 of 19 on 3s. If you don't have a shot, put it on the floor and make another play.
It was yet another late spring night in Oakland, where the Warriors played their opponent to a laugh track.
Kevin Love had 22 points and 10 boards for the cold-shooting Cavs, who will now try to gain some momentum back home. "And no, I haven't lost confidence", coach Tyronn Lue said.
