Kevin Durant impressed as the Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 113-91 in the first game of the NBA finals.
The two teams are playing in the finals for the third successive year – and Durant scored 38 points as the Western Conference winners comfortably maintained their perfect post-season record.
Stephen Curry poured in 28 for the Warriors, who had home advantage in the opening game of the best-of-seven series.
LeBron James, seeking his fourth NBA title, led the scoring for the Cavs with 28 and Kyrie Irving managed 24 – but the defending champions were far from their best and suffered heavily with turnovers.
The teams are back at the Oracle Arena again on Sunday for the second match in the series, before the action heads to Ohio for two games.
