LeBron James and Steph Curry may be fierce opponents on the basketball court.
The Cavs trailed 2-0 against the Warriors before going on to win the championship series in 2016, but James insists they need to stay on the edge. He told me he's feeling better. "I have to defend better".
The WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx were not invited to the White House to celebrate their most recent title, something James called "laughable". If you focus on who is saying the right things, you shouldn't get lost in the noise that's going on right now. "M-V-P!" on a trip to the foul line in the first quarter. "I guess because you are comfortable", he said. Might want to choose that (expletive) wisely, man, (rather) than (expletive) with me.
Smith was a prominent figure in Game 1 for all the wrong reasons. He is questionable for Game 3 of the Finals. Smith then dribbled toward midcourt as if he was running out the clock and thinking Cleveland had the lead. I'm not sure what time I'll end up getting to bed. I don't really dwell on things too much. "Some of those shots, I don't think anybody in the world can hit those but him".
"We've just got to embrace whatever happens and look forward to a insane environment with a team that's desperate", Durant said. "But our communication and making it tough for him could be better".
The statement said the players refused to go because of Trump's insistence they stand for the national anthem, but several Eagles players have said that was not the case.More news: US defence chief decries Chinese 'intimidation'
The Warriors, in lieu of going to the White House, spent that day taking a group of children to the National Museum of African American History and Culture a few miles away.
Lue gave Rodney Hood a chance and the seldom-used forward came through with 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting with six rebounds. He made 10 of 20 shots from the field but was not almost as efficient as he was the series opener.
The player James tried to set up the most was Kevin Love and he responded with 22 points. So I don't feel good about it. But I'll be fine. After they wasted a 51-point effort by James - with a reversed official's call, missed free throw by George Hill and bone-headed move from J.R. Smith - and let Game 1 slip away in overtime, and following Stephen Curry's 3-point barrage in Game 2, the Cavs are faced with the reality that their season, unusual as it has been to this point, is in serious jeopardy. "I didn't want to run there and shoot a bad shot, fall to the ground and they got numbers going the other way so I chose to pull up".
And, just as it did in Game 3 a year ago, it moved Durant and the Warriors to the precipice of a championship.
