Windhorst: Cavs got tired in Game 1 win (3:08)

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Quote of the night from Richard Jefferson: "You can always try and find a silver lining, but I'd rather be Negative Nancy. Whenever you get a team to 15 points, they are almost dead. When you get it to 18, all you've got to do is lift the shovel up and pour dirt on 'em, especially if you want to be a high-level team. We didn't do that tonight and it almost cost us."

LeBron James on Kyle Korver being held to one shot attempt: "We have a scouting report and we followed that scouting report for 48 minutes"

Ohm Youngmisuk ESPN Staff Writer 

Once up 88-87 with 4:28 to go, Atlanta missed six straight shots, turned the ball over three times and surrendered two key offensive rebounds before scoring a meaningless basket in final 18 seconds. Hawks blew a chance to put pressure on Cavs, coming off eight-day layoff.

Cavs win 104-93 to take Game 1 and improve to 5-0 in the postseason. LeBron 25p 9a 7r 5s 1b; Kyrie 21p 8a; Love 17p 11r; Tristan 8p 14r (7 offensive); J.R. 12p 3a; Frye 8p; Jefferson 8p.

Dave Tuley ESPN Staff Writer 

Cavaliers beat Hawks 104-93 in series opener. The ViewFromVegas is they also covered as 8-point home favorites (after squandering big lead and then pulling away late). The game stayed under the betting total of 200 points. Favorites are 3-0 ATS this round but overs are now 2-1.

LeBron shrugs at Hawks' lack of defense (0:15)

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Cleveland's 10-point halftime lead cut it in half and then some going into the 4th Q, up 74-70. LeBron 20p 7a 4r; Love 13p on 4-of-16 8r; Kyrie 12p on 5-of-14 7a; Tristan 7p 12r; J.R. 9p 3r 3a; Jefferson 8p in 7 minutes.

Cavs up 51-41 at the half. LeBron 13p on 6-of-10 5a 3r; Kyrie 12p 2a; Love 5p on 1-of-10 8r; Tristan 4p 7r; Jefferson 8p on 3-of-3 3r. CLE shooting 9-of-21 from 3; ATL shooting 29.8 pct overall.

Cavs have distributed faces to the crowd to distract Atlanta players. Among the ones I spotted: CLE players, Betty White, Ron Swanson, Macaulay Culkin, a clown.

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Kyle Korver is 0-for-1 in 15 minutes. This after averaging 12 pts on 45 pct shooting from 3 in the first round. Great defense by J.R. Smith.

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

CLE is up 30-19 after 1Q. Kyrie 10p 4-of-6; LeBron 7p 2a 1r; J.R. 6p 3a; Love 2p 0-of-6 6r. Cavs shooting 6-of-11 from 3. ATL shooting 33.3 pct overall.

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

The Q is going nuts. Cavs take an early 16-8 lead on the Hawks. CLE is 4-of-6 from 3. ATL not shabby either at 2-of-3 from deep.
