Following a heartbreaking Game 1 loss to the Warriors, a salty LeBron ended his postgame interview early after repeated questions about J.R. Smith blowing the game. The reporter wouldn’t accept LeBron’s answer about what happened at the end of regulation and repeated his question several times before LeBron decided he had enough and walked out. As he left he told the reporter to “be better tomorrow.”
There is no doubt about it, and you could even see J.R. say it after the play, he thought the Cavs were up, no matter what he says. LeBron wasn’t going to throw his teammate under the bus. Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue on the other hand, had no problem doing so.
Ty Lue postgame:"He thought it was over. He thought we were up 1." – on what J.R. Smith said to him about dribbling out the clock at end of regulation.
