Event of the day

The Event of the day is Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers - a rematch from last year's NBA finals and a record third straight year that the teams have met in the finals. Both sides have produced dominant performances in the playoffs to comfortably make the season finale - they have only lost one game between them. The Warriors beating the Portland Trail Blazers, the Utah Jazz and the San Antonio Spurs without losing a game. The Cavaliers saw off the Indiana Pacers, the Toronto Raptors and the Boston Celtics with just the one loss in total, which came against the Celtics. Last year's finals were historical as it saw Cleveland became the first team to come back from a NBA finals 3-1 deficit to win the series, winning the decider 93-89. 

Honourable mentions around the globe go to the opening day of the ICC Champions Trophy at the Kia Oval as England face Bangladesh. It is the very first all-French Women's Champions League final in Cardiff as Paris Saint-Germain take on Lyon. Lyon is looking to claim a back to back final win and a fourth title. PSG are still searching for their maiden Champion League title after losing their only final in 2015 to FFC Frankfurt. The PGA Tour continues with The Memorial Tournament at the Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio. However, the long awaited NBA Finals rematch in Oakland at the Oracle Arena tonight is top of the viewing list. Enjoy. 

Have a great day.
