LeBron James on NBA Finals Game 2 defeat: 'It sucks to lose'

  • Will Stephen Curry Be Named NBA Finals MVP after Making History?

Cleveland: Defending champion Golden State, powered by 43 points from Kevin Durant, moved to the brink of a third National Basketball Association title in four seasons Wednesday by defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-102. The Warriors have a 2-0 series lead over the Cavs. "It's a big difference", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said when asked to compare the pre- and post-Durant Warriors. "We know how Cleveland plays here, with a lot of energy and force". So it's going to be huge for us. However, Jordan's 33.4 points per game playoff average eclipses James' 28.9 points per game mark in the postseason. "This is the last team in the world you want to relax against", LeBron James said.

The mercurial player said he is equipped to deal with it.

Trump, who has equated the protest with disrespect of flag and nation, said last September that any protesting "son of a bitch" should be fired and added recently "maybe you shouldn't be in the country". Subscribe to our SMS sports service by texting "SPORTS" to 22840. I know how clips can get broken up and somebody can clip that and be like, 'Oh, LeBron said he doesn't feel good.' I personally don't feel good today of the deficit that we have. "Just being in front of our crowd will be huge for us". It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going [to the White House].

In the days since Game 1, James did his best to put a positive spin on Smith's late-game blunder.

"We literally never have a conversation about who needs to take over". Yes, that was a better Cavs team - they had Kyrie Irving - and Durant had yet to join Golden State, but numerous same players remain on both teams. Durant's night included a dramatic 32-foot pull-up 3 from the left wing with 49.8 seconds remaining that doubled the Warriors' lead from to six points and ostensibly sealed the victory. In fairness to Stephen A., he simply said James would "have a conversation with Boston", while listing him among the suitors. We really get up to play at home.

"It sucks when you go out there and you give it everything that you have and you prep and your mind is in it and your body is in it and you come out on the losing end". We should still be uncomfortable. The Warriors' visit was cancelled earlier this year. After lighting up Cleveland in the first two games, Curry shot 3 for 16 from the floor, scoring only 11 points. Winning tomorrow is a step forward, but then going out with Game 4 also.

After a record nine three-pointers in a Finals match from Curry, James urged the Cavs to remember they can only control what they do on the court.

"We had some slip-ups and things we can correct going into game three", Curry said.
