Warriors fans gave J.R. Smith a free-throw line 'MVP' chant

04 June, 2018, 06:26 | Author: Sylvester Abbott

Smith, of course, infamously dribbled out the clock with the score tied during regulation of Game 1, allowing the Warriors to eventually pull out the win in overtime.

Public backlash after the late-game mistakes by his teammates in Game 1 of the finals proves James' point, as the criticism and memes have dominated the Twitterverse and other social media.

"It's better. It doesn't look better, but the docs told me it's better", James said.

"I'd rather a guy not get suspended", he said after practice Saturday. Klay Thompson added 20 points playing on a tender left leg to put the defending champions two victories from a repeat title they have talked about since the season began last fall. "It doesn't really bother me at all", Thompson said of Green's antics. They must focus on unraveling the Warriors in Game 2 by working together. Kevin Love chipped in 21 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to build on a strong performance. Golden State is 13-3 in postseason Game 2s dating to the 2015 title run.

Game 1's result hasn't changed Lue's faith in Smith.

It's pretty clear Warriors fans appreciate JR Smith's role in Golden State's NBA Finals Game 1 overtime win.

Just over 24 hours before tipoff of Game 2 of the NBA Finals, Green issued a threat to Tristan Thompson to let him know that while the physicality on the court may not continue, they could always work out their differences off of it.

"We're right where we want to be and we're all very confident that we're going to get better from here".

Twitter had some amusing reactions to this latest effort at team unity by the Cavaliers. He says he appreciates greatness in all forms - the Warriors, LeBron James, as well as the careers of Tiger Woods and Serena Williams. The Warriors are 0-4 ATS in their last four games played on two days of rest. "We're going to get, I would imagine, a great effort out of him tomorrow".

"As you try to lock in on the details as much as possible, that luck factor - good luck, bad luck - you don't have it creep in if you figure out the detail parts", Durant said.

Kerr had also said Thompson was doing better Sunday morning when he checked in with the training staff. I'm happy he only got a $25,000 fine.

LeBron James could move up on a couple of NBA Finals individual lists in Game 2 - but also fall backward in another.

Las Vegas is thinking Golden State in Game 2 of the NBA Finals - and big. "You know, that does nothing for us or for me".

Smith has missed more than half his shots in eight straight games - his longest such cold streak since November.
