LeBron remains positive despite opening setback
Cleveland may have lost the opening game of the NBA Finals to Golden State, but Lebron James isn’t daunted by the setback. Despite the dispiriting 104-89 defeat to the Warriors, James has been here before and knows it can be a long series - if the Cavs respond accordingly. Cleveland also lost game one last year before rallying to win the next two and James’ teams have won nine straight game twos after losing the series opener dating back to 2008. “I’m not discouraged at all,” said James. “I understand we had our opportunities. “We played some good basketball for 36 minutes, and the fourth quarter got away from us. “We definitely missed some really easy looks. Some looks that we’re accustomed to making that we’ve made all year long. But not discouraged in the fact that we were able to get into the paint, but we’ve got to be able to knock them home.” Cleveland head to Golden State for game two tomorrow at 4am UAE time.
