Game 1 of the much-anticipated 2017 NBA Finals started out as a clinic on bad basketball, but when the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors got the nerves out, they started throwing down ... nasty dunks.

Leave it to LeBron James to punctuate the first-quarter display with a vicious dunk on JaVale McGee:

It was a Game 1 dunk fest, with the Warriors alone getting seven in the quarter, and no one was complaining.
