Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson (11) gestures after scoring against the Cleveland Cavaliers during the second half of Game 1 of basketball's NBA Finals in Oakland, Calif., Thursday, May 31, 2018.
In Game 2 on Sunday, he dropped 33 points on 11-of-26 shooting, breaking a Finals record by netting nine three-pointers along the way.
But on this night, it was clear from the beginning of Golden State's 122-103 Game 2 win that LeBron is just a man - a very exhausted man.
"MVP! MVP!" the Warriors' fans sarcastically chanted at Smith.
"It's all about trying to get a win and doing whatever you can to make that happen", Curry said.
Thompson will receive treatment during the Warriors' travel day to Cleveland on Monday and on Tuesday.
That is a reference to James walking out of his Game 1 press conference while telling media members to "be better tomorrow".
James took even more punishment in putting up enough big numbers to be only two rebounds from a triple-double after just three quarters.
"The game's over. There's nothing we can do about it", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.

Smith has been one of the Cavs best options from 3-point range, but he was just 1 for 4 in this game. In Game 2, he hummed with a 10-for-14 night from the field for 26 points, along with nine rebounds and, impressively, seven assists.
Coach Steve Kerr was already nitpicking the performance 15 minutes after the game.
Thompson briefly went to the locker room during the game then returned and finished with 24 points and five 3-pointers on 8-for-16 shooting in the Warriors' 124-114 overtime victory.
The Splash Brothers could occupy two of the top three spots in that category by the end of the game. So for me, I think I've had a high pain tolerance since I've been a kid.
There was nothing malicious about Kerr's tone making the joke, so we're not willing to start drama here. The days between games couldn't come at a better time for Mr. 82 Games (for the first time in the regular season in his career). This was a pretty good night to be Stephen Curry.
"As you try to lock in on the details as much as possible, that luck factor - good luck, bad luck - you don't have it creep in if you figure out the detail parts", Durant said.
Shaun Livingston isn't flashy. In the meantime, Kerr says Iguodala had even entered the huddle and given suggestions.
"But you know (in) the summers, you can meet anybody anywhere", he said. "He's been a great mentor for the younger guys in this group the last few years". But the benches and role players, on paper and with Iguodala sidelined, are closer than we think. It remains to be seen how effective he can be on the court. Love's outside shooting has been erratic throughout the playoffs, but it would be surprising if he has another poor shooting night from beyond the arc in Game 1.
