LeBron James said the fact that his 51-point performance in Game 1 of the NBA Finals Thursday ended with a Cleveland Cavaliers loss shows how difficult it will be to dethrone the defending champion Golden State Warriors.One thing that did not go the Cavs' way was a blocking call on James, which officials initially ruled as a charge against Warriors forward Kevin Durant with the change of decision allowing Golden State to tie the game in the final minute.The night was a historic one for James, who is the only player other than Michael Jordan to score more than 50 points in a finals game since 1970 .The Cavaliers and Warriors meet for Game 2 of the best-of-seven series in Oakland Sunday.
