It's quite understandable that he's upset about the Cavaliers' 2-0 deficit, but it's also interesting that he's still confident heading into the rest of the series.
LeBron James compared the Golden State Warriors to the NFL's New England Patriots after his Cleveland Cavaliers fell 3-0 behind in the NBA Finals. They trail the Golden State Warriors, 2-0, in NBA Finals 2018.
"I hope to be in that situation", Curry said. "We understand how hard it is to win in this building".
"I think, at the end of the day, we have a Game 3 to play", James said. There's no guarantee that Cleveland would have scored to win the game in those final seconds if Smith had done anything differently. "The guys are engaged and locked in". James needs to decide which teammates he can trust early each game then go to them as much as possible. We know it's going to be loud. Guarded inside the circle above the foul line by JaVale McGee, who started a second straight game for Golden State, James pulled a magnificent playground move.
"We want to continue to be uncomfortable", James said via FearTheSword. But we have an opportunity. "It's nothing to feel happy about being up 2-0". You play on his team, you're playing with the best player in the world and you get to witness some great, historic things and be a part of it. "And we have to be prepared for that".
"First year, it was 1-1", Kerr said.
"It's typical of him", he told reporters. I expect the Cavs role players to show up and for the crowd to do just enough to help the Cavs steal game three, making this series somewhat interesting heading into Friday night. "But one thing about JR, he has an uncanny ability to bounce back". The eye has looked a lot better. Furthermore, the four made shots from 30 feet out by Durant were more than any team has made in a playoff game in the past 20 postseasons. However, Jordan's 33.4 points per game playoff average eclipses James' 28.9 points per game mark in the postseason. So that was kind of tough on him.
Almost 20,000 screaming Cavs supporters won't hurt Cleveland's cause, either.
To say Smith was the reason Cleveland lost Thursday night isn't right, or fair.
"We know, throughout the course of a 48-minute game, there are going to be plays where it was a miscue here, it was a miscue there. It's going to be fun".
Team-mate Kevin Durant also concurred.
"The shot clock was running down, I was pretty far out, I just wanted to get a look", Durant said.
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".
