OAKLAND, Calif. - Stephen Curry scored 26 points, including the first four of overtime, and the Golden State Warriors overcame LeBron James' 44 points for a 108-100 victory Thursday night over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

The Warriors scored the first 10 points of the extra period, pitching a shutout until James' meaningless basket with under 10 seconds to go.

James had his highest point total ever in the finals, but missed a jumper with about 3 seconds left in regulation that could've won it. Iman Shumpert just missed a follow attempt from near the sideline on a long rebound at the buzzer, and it was all Warriors from there.

Kyrie Irving had 23 points for the Cavs but limped off the court with about 2 minutes left in OT. Irving looked to be in a lot pain heading to the locker room, throwing his jersey to the ground in frustration.

Game 2 is here Sunday night.
