There has been a lot of hype ahead of the NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors and the teams didn't disappoint.

Game one was explosive and became the first game one in the NBA Finals to go to overtime since 2001.

The Warriors managed to overcome the Cavaliers thanks to a 10-8 run in overtime, but there was one man who did everything he could to stop them.

Cavaliers LeBron James scored a career high in a Finals game with 44 points as he did everything he could to help his team.

LeBron helped the Cavaliers take significant leads throughout the game but it just wasn't enough when the final buzzer went.

Cleveland were up by 10 points at the end of the first quarter but the teams were within touching distance come the half.

It was a tied game at the end of the third and as expected, all the drama came towards the end of the fourth quarter.

Regulation time came to an end with the score level at 98 but the Cavaliers had Kyrie Irving to thank for that.

Irving provided a great final block on an attempted lay up by league MVP Steph Curry to keep the scores tied.

Unfortunately for Irving, he left the game injured before the final buzzer in overtime and he was seen limping back to the locker room.

Irving was visibly frustrated at his injury and it could spell bad news for the Cavaliers if it proves to be a serious injury.

The Cavaliers failed to beat the Warriors with Irving so without him will clearly make the task even harder.

Game one was certainly explosive and lived up to the hype of the past week with everyone now wondering what is to come in the next few games.

Andre's big night

While Curry, Irving and James all shone for their teams tonight, another man made some of the biggest plays of the game in Andre Iguodala.

The Warriors star nailed two of the plays of the night starting with an incredible steal and slam dunk to end the third quarter.

Then again in the fourth, Iguodala hit an incredible three pointer despite having just one shoe on as he finished the night with 15 points.
