No suspension for Cavs' Love for leaving bench in Game 1

No suspension for Cavs' Love for leaving bench in Game 1

Cavs' forward Tristan Thompson and Warriors forward Draymond Green got into a heated altercation that included a taunting Green that instigated a shove of the basketball in Green's face by Thompson.

But Thompson was back in the second quarter of Golden State's 124-114 win and swiftly hit his 293rd career playoff 3-pointer to pass Kobe Bryant (292) for sixth place on the NBA's all-time postseason threes list. I make the contest, and next thing I know, I was being kicked out for a good contest that we learn in training camp.

Zinedine Zidane steps down as Real Madrid coach
Madrid sports daily AS said after the final that Zidane was "the architect of this glorious and possibly unrepeatable era". The timing comes as a shock to many after Real Madrid defeated Liverpool , 3-1, in the Champions League final on Saturday.

It was only six minutes into Game 1 of this year's NBA Finals that it looked like we might have witnessed a series-changing play. Then, Draymond Green got into it with Thompson, and the banished Cavs big man shoved the ball in Draymond's face. I don't know why there's any ritual that tells you you're supposed to stop playing. "But if there is time left on the clock, the game is going to continue to play". Thompson could still be facing a suspension for his part in the skirmish. According to ESPN's Dave McMenamin, Green was mimicking a cheerleader waving pom-poms to mock Perkins who was screaming towards the Warriors' side of the court. That set off a trash talking session between Curry, James and Klay Thompson. I mean, obviously, if they're doing some taunting or doing some insane stuff, that's a little different.

While the fine may be bad news for Thompson's bank account, the fact that he will be available for Game 2 is great news.
