LeBron James to Get Over Game 2 With Food and Wine

LeBron James knows that when Kevin Durant shoots, he falls forward.
Some in National Basketball Association circles reportedly think LeBron will head West after the 2017-18 season.
Kyrie Irving looked like a man possessed in the third quarter. Right now, the Cavaliers are seeking answers after dropping two games decisively at Oracle Arena. However, he has a great perspective on that status, and it comes from his father, Dell Curry, a former National Basketball Association player. "You saw early in the first half" of Game Two "when LeBron's able to attack and get downhill with the floor open, that's when we're at our best".
Kyrie Irving led all scorers with 40 points on 15-for-27 shooting.
The final three minutes of Game 4 didn't have almost the same drama, as Cleveland put in its subs for garbage time in a game the Cavaliers led by as many as 22 points.
LBJ's response? "I stunk in the first Finals".
Kyrie will also benefit from some home cookin' this week.
Lebron shot only 18 times, scored 29 points and added 14 assists and 11 rebounds.
Anything is certainly possible when James hits free agency. The Cavaliers did force the two-time MVP into eight turnovers - a trend they'd like to continue on Wednesday night at The Q.
The Block has been replayed over and over and over again in the past year.
James has left Cleveland before to play for the Miami Heat. The four-time NBA MVP achieved the goal by leading the Cavaliers to a come-from-behind NBA Finals triumph over the Warriors previous year. This after combining to go 31-for-104 on 3s in the first three games of the series. In any case, it's a lot of minutes and his career clearly is in its second half (though he's said nothing about calling it quits anytime soon).
Warriors guard Stephen Curry was impressed to see Durant seize the moment and swing momentum in the game and series heavily in Golden State's favor.
"You go against a team like this and you put together a game like we had where we had an opportunity, it's definitely draining".
"We're confident in him taking that shot every time."
Are the positives of sunshine, Hollywood, potentially playing alongside Paul George and a young core who could begin to carry him as he ages enough to entice LeBron to leave Cleveland a second time? He now has nine Finals triple-doubles, passing Magic Johnson for most all-time.
The TV ratings for the first two games of the NBA Finals were the highest since 1998, the year that Michael Jordan and the Bulls beat the Utah Jazz for the last of their six championships. On Thursday, James seemed to suggest that was a good plan. However, the feat looks near impossible this year.
There are bound to be plenty of rumors revolving around James and the Cavaliers, especially if they are swept by the Warriors.
Game 4 of the NBA Finals was a freaky, circus show.
How will Game 5 play out Monday night?
