Mood swing: LeBron, Cavs home looking to turn around Finals

LeBron James Golden State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers - Game 3 - 6/6/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

James' comment came in response to President Trump's decision to disinvite the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles to the White House, which POTUS said was because the players "disagree with their president because he insists that they proudly stand for the national anthem".

The Cleveland Cavaliers are down 0-2 in the NBA Finals and can't afford to lose Game 3 at home, as no team in NBA history has ever come back from a three-game deficit.

"I'm not surprised", James said of Trump's behavior.

"I know whoever wins this series, no one wants an invite", Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James was quoted as saying today as the NBA Finals shifts to OH for Game 3 on Wednesday. The Cavaliers just weren't connected defensively and it allowed the Warriors to get going early with McGee in the first quarter, but to their credit, they were able to weather the storm of the third quarter to give themselves half a chance in the fourth.

But new footage of the Cavaliers bench before the start of overtime has shown James turning incredulous after finding out his team still had a timeout remaining.

The WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx were not invited to the White House to celebrate their most recent title, something James called "laughable". "Winning [a championship] is way bigger than getting invited to the White House, especially with him in there". For four of the past five years of the game, each cover star of each year has gone on to leave the team they were with that year at some point before the next edition of the game comes out.

Curry raised Trump's ire a year ago when he said he wouldn't go to the White House, prompting the President to disinvite him and the champion Golden State Warriors.

"I agree with 'Bron", Curry said at a separate news conference. "I want to be part of leading that charge and play an awesome game to really take control of the series". "I think we've done a great job of playing here throughout the course of the playoffs".

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers needed to hit the ground running after their demoralizing Game 1 loss but that just didn't happen.

Role players playing their roles for Warriors - While it was a matter of time before Curry had one of "those" games in which he hit virtually every type of shot he attempted from 3-point range, both Livingston and McGee have left large imprints on this series in their limited minutes. We really get up to play at home. That's what the military fights for, is free speech.

And Kellerman has taken aim at the three-time National Basketball Association champion for not showing more support to Smith at a crucial period of the game. Warriors Coach Steve Kerr - another vocal Trump critic - ended his own long statement about the decision to disinvite the Eagles by saying, "It will be nice when we can just get back to normal in three years".
