Warriors’ Festus Ezeli with putback dunk (VIDEO)
OAKLAND — This is mostly how Golden State stayed in the game in the first quarter.
The Warriors stars were cold again — Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined to shoot 1-of-5 from three, 2-of-7 overall in the first quarter — but Golden State had seven offensive rebounds, leading to six second chance points. This putback dunk by Festus Ezeli was the best of the group.
The Cavaliers led after one 21-19, but the game wasn’t pretty — both teams shot under 40 percent — and didn’t find a groove until the second quarter.
