LeBron James dropped 46 points and led the Cavs to a Game 2 victory. The win tied the series at a game apiece.
Following the vintage LeBron performance and during the on-court postgame interview, reporter Allie LaForce broke the news of the passing of Gregg Popovich’s wife to him.
LeBron seemed to be a little caught off guard by the news, but still managed to deliver a thoughtful and emotional response.
According to LeBron, who is still in observance of Zero Dark Thirty-23, he was not at all caught off guard by the news. In fact, Allie asked him prior to the interview if it was okay to mention it.

LeBron either put his acting skills to work or he’s doing his best to protect Allie LaForce from ridicule.
