Cavs and Warriors would take pass on White House visit

Last September, Trump revoked an invitation to the Warriors after they beat Cleveland in last year's final following comments from Golden State star Stephen Curry saying he didn't want to attend.

James showed in last year's Finals how quickly he can calculate a counter-attack to what the Warriors are doing.

James said he learned Trump had uninvited the Eagles on his way to the podium and said he hadn't digested the information yet. "I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants to go anyway".

Golden State powered past Cleveland on Sunday night to win Game 2.

And in the wake of President Donald Trump dis-inviting the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles from the White House, James didn't hesitate to speak for Curry and the rest of the Golden State Warriors players and coaches.

"The King" was his usual self posting a near-triple-double of 29 points, 13 assists and 9 rebounds, but those numbers weren't enough as the Cavaliers now trail 0-2 in the best-of-7 championship bout. 'I think we've done a great job of playing here throughout the course of the play-offs. Cleveland has experienced much success at Quicken Loans Arena in this year's playoffs holding an 8-1 record with their sole loss being in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series against the Indiana Pacers.

Injury Report: Andre Iguodala (knee) is listed as questionable for Game 3, but Steve Kerr said there's a "good chance" that he'll play. "Just being in front of our crowd will be huge for us". We really get up to play at home.

The Warriors opened up a 2-0 lead after back-to-back opening wins at home to take a giant stride towards a third crown in four years in what is their fourth straight finals meeting with the Cavaliers.

Unfortunately for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Smith was a nonfactor Sunday night after his late-game mistake in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

"It's typical of him. You know if you relax, they make you pay, and making you pay could cost you a game", James said.

LeBron James is a once in a generation type player that has the ability to make mediocre teams into championship caliber teams.

Curry got into foul trouble early which prevented him from carrying over the rhythm he had in Game 2.

James defended Curry after Trump blamed him for the disinvitation, tweeting: "U bum".

How do the Cavaliers bounce back from that, especially after absorbing an even more painful setback in Game 1 last Thursday?
