    Game-Changing plays from the NBA Finals.



    To highlight the Live ScoreCaster, we took our in-game technology to the next level to review the game-changing plays from NBA Playoffs and what the game would have looked like if the plays had turned out differently.

    Golden State Warriors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Warriors needed overtime but Golden State found a way to win Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Stephen Curry (26 points, 8 assists) and Klay Thompson (21 points, 6 rebounds) led the way in a 108-100 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

    The Cavs could have won if…

    When a game goes to overtime anything can happen. Unfortunately for the Cavs they missed their first eight shots of the extra session and scored two points, a meaningless layup by LeBron James after the game was out of reach.

    Cleveland wishes it could replay the final 24 seconds of regulation.

    After Kyrie Irving blocked Curry from behind on a would-be layup, LeBron dribbled down the clock and missed a tough jumper from the left arc. Iman Shumpert grabbed the offensive rebound and nearly made a buzzer beater to steal Game 1.



    Two shots in three seconds, both to win the game, both misses.

    If the Cavs could get the ball back with 24 seconds left in the 4th, in a tied game, Cleveland becomes 50 percent likely to win.

    LeBron and company would definitely take that opportunity, the Warriors were 55 percent likely to win Game 1 entering overtime.

    Additional Game Notes:
    Golden State up 1-0 in the series, the Warriors are now 80.1% likely to win the NBA Finals.
