The Stanley Cup Finals hit the ice for Game 1 between newbies the Vegas Golden Knights and the Washington Capitals in Sin City on NBC, but the real sports showdown last night was on TNT in Game 7 of the National Basketball Association playoffs' Western Conference Finals.
In response to Kerr's comments, Thompson said the Warriors were not anxious because they were more than capable of making an 11-point lead vanish within minutes. "You have to have endurance, you've got to have resiliency, you've got to have confidence in yourself, no matter how the game's going up until that point, that you can turn it around".

It was a 10-point game going into the fourth, and as the Celtics fought to gain traction, the Cavs kept them at arm's length. Friday he scored 20 points, his most of the postseason, on 7-of-12 shooting. "I haven't always been successful, obviously".
