After a couple of days to let the greatness of the 2018 NBA Finals' game opener, the reigning champion Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers are back on the court for the much-awaited Game 2 on Sunday night at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.
James did score 51 points Thursday in Game 1, but the Cavaliers ultimately fell to the Warriors 124-114 in overtime. His latest efficient shooting night coincided, though, with nursing pain in his left ankle that left his availability uncertain until he completed a pre-game workout.
But tensions were clearly high towards the end of the game when LeBron James and Steph Curry were involved in a heated exchange before Tristan Thompson was ejected for pushing the ball into Draymond Green's face. "I would say that about every one of our guys". "It's something you definitely don't want to have in the National Basketball Association championship".
It didn't take long for LeBron James to make headlines after arriving to Game 1 of the NBA Finals in fashion, wearing nice fitted shorts with a suit jacket.
James appeared to draw a charge on Durant. I think people have seen that throughout our postseason runs, where he hasn't played well or played to his ability that he thinks he should have played, and then the next game he comes on and shoots the ball extremely well. Though he went only 3-of-8 from the field and 1-of-5 from 3-point range in the first quarter, Curry also had five assists. He made the first free throw to tie it, missed the second.

To recall, James sustained the eye injury in a play against Green of the Golden State Warriors. But the summer, you can meet anybody anywhere, so all this, 'Meet me outside, ' 'Meet me at the bus, ' I ain't gonna give up money for that.
"He's going to start". He's a big part of what we do.
This was something which James emphasised when talking to the media about the incident, as he said: "We've got to move on".
"I felt like the team did a great job". Me not hitting the free throw, I feel like cost our team the win. "It doesn't really bother me at all", Thompson said of Green's antics.

The 23-time Grand Slam victor used her serve, which is her biggest weapon to great effect in the decider, breaking the third game. But from somewhere Williams got her serve firing and summoned up her powerful groundstrokes to blow Barty away 3-6 6-3 6-4.
"It's definitely gotten better since last season", Durant said.
"I blew that opportunity. If we're going to be that petty to do that, so be it".
Thompson said he is in more pain: "It's not good".
The Warriors had some questions of their own in terms of availability for Game 2.
"I'm not too concerned if Thompson is going to be available or not", Golden State guard Klay Thompson said.
Andre Iguodala remains doubtful as he tries to recover from a bone bruise in his left knee that has sidelined him for the past five games.
"I don't remember", he said. Smith seemed to mouth to James that he thought the team was ahead, though he later told reporters he knew the score and was expecting someone else to take a timeout.
"I didn't think we made him work hard enough".
