LeBron Repeatedly Asked About JR's Blunder, Leaves Press Conference

LeBron Repeatedly Asked About JR's Blunder, Leaves Press Conference

In 2015, when the Golden State beat the Cavs to capture the franchise's first title in 40 years, the first two games of the series went to OT - Golden State winning the opener and Cleveland Game 2.

There wasn't a lot of similarity in Cleveland's and Golden State's seasons, but their last few days have been mirror images of one another - both teams had to win Game 6s at home to fend off elimination, then had to go on the road and prevail in Game 7s to win their respective conference finals.

Needless to say, James wasn't thrilled with that sequence of events. Despite his hiccups, Smith has become a vital piece for the Cavaliers during their run of four straight NBA Finals, including a championship over the Warriors in 2016. I tried to bring it out and get enough space to maybe get a shot off. I looked over at LeBron and he looked like he was trying to get a timeout. It's not like we're not the best friends, and I don't think you should be best friends with a player and an owner shouldn't be best friends unless I'm your father and that's my son, and, OK, cool we could be great then.

"I'm always going to stick behind my guys", Lue said.

It was a wild first night of the NBA Finals. "I knew I was outside the charge line, and I knew I took the hit". "I seen the drive, I was outside the charge line, stepped in and took the contact". Despite the chain of events, James managed to play all 48 minutes in Game 7, going the distance in a playoff game for the first time since 2006.

While James was moving when Durant left the ground, he still believed he was in a legal position and should have gotten the call even after it went to replay.

"One of the most challenging seasons I've had", said James, who may be playing the best basketball of his life right now at the end of his 15th season. It's a huge play.




Golden State coach Steve Kerr said the injury, originally described as a bone bruise, had no defined timetable for recovery and is typically a matter of an individual's pain threshold.

The two teams are meeting for the fourth consecutive year to form one of the sports most fascinating rivalries.

Overall, TNT's 42 live playoff games averaged 4.9 million viewers, the network's most-watched playoffs coverage since 2011.

James said he didn't know what Smith was thinking and walked out of the postgame news conference after growing exhausted of repeated questioning about whether Smith knew the score.

"Just keeping our composure was big for us the entire series", Curry said.

"He thought it was over", Lue said.

LeBron James was visibly perplexed at JR Smith's decision to not attempt to score with seconds remaining.
