Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love will not be suspended for Game 2 of the NBA Finals after stepping onto the court Thursday while he was not checked into the game when a scuffle broke out in the closing seconds of Game 1.

Game 2 might be absent a few faces, but that's something Green isn't too concerned about.

"I don't care if he plays or not", Thompson added.

Wild animals that escaped German zoo have been found
Numerous police, zookeepers, and firefighters are combing the zoo looking for the animals before they wandered into the town. One woman tweeted: "An innocent animal shot because the zoo clearly couldn't keep the animals safely in captivity".

Prior to Thompson exiting the court, Love was seen walking onto the court as [referee Tony] Brothers went to the scorers table to relay his ruling.

"We're always going to take a shot if the game tells us to take a shot", said Kerr in a conference call. I don't know why there's any ritual that tells you you're supposed to stop playing.

"I thought it was unnecessary when he shoved the ball in Draymond's face", Thompson said.

It was clearly just a freak accident, and Smith wasn't being malicious - as he has been previously in the playoffs - but it still would have been devastating to the Warriors if Thompson wasn't able to continue - especially with Andre Iguodala already out for Game 1. When the two forwards approached each other, Thompson had some words before ramming the ball into Green's face. Maybe he was trying to increase his points.

While that was going on, Warriors forward Shaun Livingston took a late jump shot just so Golden State wouldn't get a shot clock violation. "We're not taking a turnover". "It was like a YMCA pickup game in the last 30 seconds". 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.
