Golden State Warriors Klay Thompson reacts after making a 3-point basket against the Houston Rockets during the fourth quarter of Game 6 of the NBA Western Conference finals at Oracle Arena in Oakland Calif. on Saturday

Epic JR Smith brain-fade robs Cleveland of upset win in game one of NBA Finals.

And if anybody is offended because you're playing the game the way the clock and the rules are telling you to play, then I think that's silly.

"I didn't hear him", Thompson said, "but I heard him and the rest is history".

The incident took place with a little over six minutes left in the first quarter, Steph Curry brought the ball up court and threw a hit ahead pass to Thompson along the sideline.

"I contested a shot that shouldn't have been taken", Thompson said afterward, per ESPN. Cavs' forward Tristan Thompson and Warriors forward Draymond Green got into a heated altercation that included a taunting Green that instigated a shove of the basketball in Green's face by Thompson. Thompson could still be facing a suspension for his part in the skirmish. I don't know why there's any ritual that tells you you're supposed to stop playing. "That was very uncalled for, especially if two guys are just talking".

That petty act ignited the scuffle, which was soon broken up, but Thompson continued to motion to Green to come at him as he was being led towards the tunnel.

India says it will not follow United States sanctions on Iran
Trade is one reason, given the robust market India provides for Iranian oil. "We only recognise United Nations sanctions". But Indian foreign minister Sushma Swaraj said New Delhi´s position was independent of any other country.

Warriors players say veteran big man Kendrick Perkins, who was inactive, was the most fired up Cavalier.

"Maybe he was trying to increase his points per game".

Kevin Love has every reason to be perturbed, considering the ruling nearly matches word for word his description of the play.

Information from ESPN's Chris Haynes and Dave McMenamin was used in this report. No disrespect. We just play the game.
