James, Curry agree victor of NBA Finals would skip White House visit

"No matter what's going on in the series, you change venues and you have to re-assert your dominance and try to find that momentum", Curry said. "We've been here the last three years for Game 3".

James said Trump's cancellation of the Eagles' visit to the White House was "typical of him". After they wasted a 51-point effort by James - with a reversed official's call, missed free throw by George Hill and bone-headed move from J.R. Smith - and let Game 1 slip away in overtime, and following Stephen Curry's 3-point barrage in Game 2, the Cavs are faced with the reality that their season, odd as it has been to this point, is in serious jeopardy.

The Warriors, who lead Cleveland 2-0 in the best-of-seven series entering game three Wednesday, would likely follow the lead of what they did previous year when they went to Washington and spent the day with children instead of what would have been a White House trip. "It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going", said James in a Cleveland press conference today, preceding tonight's game.

LeBron James was just a shadow of his NBA Finals career-high 51 points, but still delivered a near triple-double game of 26 points, 13 assists and 9 boards. I think that's important. When Lue came into the huddle to discuss strategy for overtime, James asked if the team had a timeout left and appeared to be devastated when Lue confirmed that one was available. "We're used to the dynamic of being ahead in a series and then having everything shift when you go on the road - especially when you play Cleveland".




"It sucks to lose, that's for sure, but it definitely won't stop me from preparing to be better", James said. "If you focus on who is saying the right things, you shouldn't get lost in the noise that's going on right now". "When somebody says they don't want to come to the White House, he disinvites them so the photo op don't look bad", Durant said. "I'm optimistic Andre will play at some point in the series", Kerr said. The Cavaliers just weren't connected defensively and it allowed the Warriors to get going early with McGee in the first quarter, but to their credit, they were able to weather the storm of the third quarter to give themselves half a chance in the fourth.

No members of the Eagles kneeled for the National Anthem this past season. "You laugh to stop from crying".

"I know it feels like we're down 2-0, and I don't like the way I feel", James said.

Kerr added that he was not surprised by Trump's rescinding of the invitation to the Eagles.
