Getting home is a almost indescribable feeling for James.
Smith spent Friday in his hotel room for the most part, watching the Memorial ("Tiger played really well", Smith said), talking with Kyle Korver and visiting with his kids over FaceTime. But he trusted them, and said with a confidence only he could have, "That's why we're going to another Finals, because my teammates played a hell of a game". After what the Cavaliers have experienced this season, a 2-0 deficit in the Finals against a star-studded Warriors squad on the cusp of being stamped as a modern-day dynasty seems manageable.
On Tuesday while taking questions from reporters, James was asked about his feelings on recent criticisms regarding a clip from Game 1 that recently went viral. So I put our team in position to try to win a championship, to compete for a championship.
Iran, Syria deny existence of Iranian military presence in country
Scores of Iranian soldiers have been killed in battles with insurgents in Syria, including a number of officers. President Donald Trump's recent description of him as an "animal", saying, "What you say is what you are".
Every single team needs to be paying attention to where James goes, because it could transform the outlook of anyone thinking about going on a run next season. They missed five of those uncontested shots. Who knows how many legitimate suitors there will be by the time free agency hits.
Head coach Tyronn Lue said the Cavaliers can't win without being more physical, a point James agreed with. He got 10 points from Kevin Love and a surprise 15 from Rodney Hood, who had just nine points in the last eight Cavs games, but it was not enough to fend off Durant's brilliance.
James was waiting for the ball, but instead of passing it to him, he passed it to Hill who was already walking up the court.
Curry fell into the first row of fans with a baseline three again over Love and four-point play at the 5m 44s mark of the fourth. By one measure, it was far and away the most impressive game of Durant's career as he made four shots from 30 feet out or farther. When Thompson is getting easy looks like this the Cavs are moving off the ball and playing well. Green is second with 387, while James is third at 381. "It's unfortunate but we all have to do what we have to do and the Eagles fall right into that". Klutch Sports also represents Tristan Thompson, JR Smith and Eric Bledsoe. A historic game, the kind he had in Game 1, is required for Cleveland to even have a chance.
"It's typical of him", James aimed at Trump. "LeBron is too great of a player". So much can go wrong here and he does it all like it was nothing. The series could have easily been flipped in Cleveland's favor.
