The Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James find themselves trailing the Golden State Warriors 2-0 in the NBA Finals once again. While the Cavs hung around in Game 2 a bit longer than they did in Game 1, the Warriors’ offense was still too much to overcome as Cleveland fell 132-113.
While Cleveland has been here before and still found a way to win, you can sense the frustration building, perhaps because deep down they know this year is different since Golden State also has Kevin Durant on their side.
James showed a little bit of that frustration in the postgame locker room after Game 2 when he snapped back a reporter who asked about the Cavs defending home court. Then he added a pretty funny line about what it would take to get himself back on track.
Don’t we all need just a little food and wine to be ok. Hopefully whatever it is James and the Cavs do between Games 2 and 3 to help them defend homecourt, it’ll allow them to hold the Warriors under 130 points.
