Social media users were turning LeBron James' frustrated reaction to his teammate J.R. Smith's error during Game 1 of the NBA Championship on Thursday into internet gold. Cleveland held a 19-4 advantage on the offensive glass, getting seven offensive rebounds in the first half to the Warriors' none.
"I knew we were tied", Smith said. Larry Nance Jr. was more physical than anyone along Golden State's frontline and Tristan Thompson, while not putting up good numbers in the series opener, never has to apologize for lack of toughness. It would also call to mind one of the oldest adages in sports, and business, and one that no athlete appreciates more than LeBron James: you've got to be in it to win it. The Cavs' forward was called for a foul while contesting the shot and then began jawing with Green afterward. I looked over at LeBron and he looked like he was trying to get a timeout. I don't know what else to say....
"We're always going to take a shot if the game tells us to take a shot".
With 2.6 seconds left in overtime, Thompson was called for a flagrant-2 foul after he got a bit too aggressive while trying to defend a Shaun Livingston jump shot.
While matching up on the court, James and Durant could flip-flop on the career postseason scoring list.
"The game is over, we can't do anything about it", Lue said.
And it hasn't changed Lue's belief in the Cavs' chances against the Warriors.
Warriors: Curry's early three-point play gave him the free throw he needed for 379 to pass Rick Barry (378) for first place on the Warriors' career list. The Warriors didn't come out with the right intensity and were somewhat lucky to escape with the win and I feel that could have them in trouble once again.
"Well, did he think that the game was tied, or did he think you guys had it salted away?". The Rockets rebounded and converted a pair of foul shots to win. Instead of attempting a put-back on the rebound, Smith elected to dribble the ball out.
Durant was notably awarded last year's Finals MVP, with many in the basketball world arguing he was slowly surpassing James as the best player in the league.
"You take it all the way throughout the night thinking about it and ways you could have been better and plays that could have happened that could have gone your way and didn't go your way or things you could have done". He has been doing it for us all season. And then tonight in the Finals on the biggest stage, when our team played well, played our ass off - man, it ain't right.
