LeBron James admits he asked Cavaliers not to trade Kyrie Irving

  • Paul Pierce had words for Le Bron James before the 4th quarter of Game 7

"It's unprofessional. I think it cost them the game", ESPN commentator and former Finals MVP Chauncey Billups said after the game of Smith's play. Reason No. 1 didn't come as much of a surprise, with Gilbert stating that his team goes as LeBron James does.

The loss, in part, was down to a freakish moment from Cavs star Smith when the scores were tied 107-107 with 4.7 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.

"He thought it was over", Lue said. "I don't know what was going through J.R.'s head". "If I thought we were ahead, I'd have held onto the ball and let them foul me".

Love was injured early in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals against Boston and was not able to play in Game 7 of that series. However, in a post-game interview, Smith made a different version of the story, saying that he knew the game was tied when he got the rebound. And LeBron was clearly four feet outside the restricted area.

"A great effort all the way through and we are standing in an unbelievable performance from 'Bron tonight", the two-time MVP added. Many wrote things along the lines of "When LeBron James finds JR Smith after the Cavs and the Warriors game" with memes of guys getting the crap kicked out of them.

The Golden State Warriors showed that they don't have to be dependent on any one player as they came together as a team and delivered when it mattered. Then Tristan Thompson was ejected, albeit questionably, for fouling Shaun Livingston.

Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue told reporters after the game that Smith "thought we were up one" when he made his freaky decision.

James hit 19 of his 32 shots en route to his 27th postseason contest of 40 or more points. But it wasn't enough when Curry answered with a three-point play followed by Smith's miscue. The Cavs are the biggest finals outsiders in 20 years, but LeBron's 51-point masterclass brought them to the verge of a massive opening victory.

In a physical and at times contentious start to the Finals, Stephen Curry led the way for the Warriors with 29 points, nine assists and six rebounds. But, his National Basketball Association finals-best 51 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists weren't enough to beat the Warriors.

Green just missed a triple-double with 13 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists for Golden State, which is attempting to repeat as champions.
