The Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Golden State Warriors in heartbreaking fashion in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday.

The Cleveland Cavaliers had many chances to steal Game 1 of the NBA Finals, but some controversial calls, a missed free throw and a poor play off a rebound from J.R. Smith cost Cleveland in a 124-114 overtime loss to Golden State.

"So I felt like the odds were against us from the summer", James continued.

A team doesn't get many second chances against great teams in the playoffs.

George Hill was fouled with 4.7 seconds remaining in the game and the Warriors clinging to a one-point lead.

The loss, in part, was down to a freakish moment from Cavs star Smith when the scores were tied 107-107 with 4.7 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.

Durant knocked James to the ground, and the bang-bang play was called a charge on the court. James was calling for the ball that entire time and could only hold his arms out in shock before walking back to the huddle for overtime. "We know they are going to come out with a lot of energy and we have to be better".

"We had a timeout and I was trying to get enough space - obviously 'K.D.' (Kevin Durant) was standing right there". The back-and-forth final seconds ended in a tie to force overtime as J.R. Smith dribbled out the clock after appearing to have forgetten the score.

"Did you think he was trying to make a play?"

The Cavaliers were not able to recover from Smith's blunder. The Warriors barely won Game 3 in Cleveland past year before getting blown out by the Cavaliers in Game 4.

Smith was the quickest to react and grabbed the rebound off the miss and had an opportunity to put a shot up to win the game for the Cavs.

The reporter then asked James whether he knew if Smith knew the score, prompting the 33-year-old forward to abruptly get up and leave the conference before pointing to the reporter and telling him to "be better tomorrow". But officials went to the replay and changed the call to a block. It was determined he was out of the restricted area, but he was not in a legal guarding position prior to Durant's separate shooting motion.

Though James was getting on Smith's grill during the game, during the post-game interview, he revealed that they just have to move on from the mistake.
