NBA Finals Preview: Warriors vs. Cavaliers

LeBron questioned whether Cavaliers would make playoffs this year

LeBron questioned whether Cavaliers would make playoffs this year

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. The referee crew elected to review the play, an option afforded to them by the National Basketball Association rulebook, to examine whether James was situated fully outside the restricted area. But the call was overturned after review, and Durant was granted two foul shots to tie the game at 104. James had his highest-scoring playoff game ever, tied Jerry West for the most 40-point games in a single postseason with eight and nearly single-handedly led the Cavs to the win.

You sort of take for granted that players playing crunch time of the NBA Finals are fully aware of the game situation on any given play. "It's just I thought we were going to take a timeout because I got the rebound". But I just felt like it was bad timing for our team to get rid of our point guard in Kyrie Irving.

When all was said and done Thursday night, Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue wishes the National Basketball Association could have reviewed the review.

LeBron James has literally carried the Cleveland Cavaliers on his shoulders throughout the tournament and if it wasn't for his brilliance the Cavs would have been eliminated a lot earlier in the season. "To do what he did tonight and come up robbed is not right".

While Kerr said he did not have time to watch the replay, Lue expressed frustration with the decision.

He then opted not to pass as a streaking Klay Thompson came into the picture. "He thought we were up one".

"I guess the rule is you can review the call if he's inside or outside the restricted area, is the rule that I know", said Lue. "We just got to be patient and not get discouraged when he makes shots and just keep playing hard". That Warriors winning face-off with LeBron and crew at Oracle Arena on June 1 past year went on to garner 18.7 million viewers, which turned out to be the lowest viewership of a hard fought five game series eventually won by the Warriors 4-1.

Warriors Cavaliers in the 2017 Finals (won series easily 4-1). At one point, he scored 12 straight in the third quarter, keeping in Cavs in the game during a stretch where the Warriors often distance themselves from their opponent. "We were over on the sideline, drawing up a play, you know, to try to execute, try to go up a couple possessions".

"The level that I can play at is to be seen, but the level that I put into the game and put into my craft is who I am", he said.
