Lue said the Cavaliers were made aware that there was a timeout left and they specifically didn't use it before the final possession because they didn't want to allow the Warriors to sub Stephen Curry out the of the game so they could take advantage of the matchup.
President Donald Trump canceled an invite Tuesday for the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles to visit this White House, announcing to hold a different ceremony instead for the 1,000 fans who planned on attending the event.
James and the Cavaliers are now down 0-2 in their best-of-seven series against the Golden State Warriors. Philadelphia is one of the Eastern Conference's most promising young teams, and would keep LeBron's path to the NBA Finals clear.
"Let's not let someone inviting you from their house take away from their championship", James told reporters.
"So I think that's definitely helped us out a lot throughout this post-season thus far".
In a statement motivating the decision to revoke the Eagles' invite, the Office of the Press Secretary highlighted how some members of the team disagreed with Trump over his insistence players should stand for the national anthem. "And he was standing over my leg, and I don't understand what people want me to do. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up". Curry said that the Warriors are prepared to face the rowdy crowd at Quicken Loans Arena.
James stated firmly that neither the Cavs nor the Warriors would be accepting any Trump invitation, no matter what the circumstances.
"Everybody looked at me like I was insane", Durant said in an interview with The Athletic.
Tuesday, after some prodding and denials he knew it went viral to begin with, James opened up about the video, taking us inside his thoughts as he sat on the bench and tried to process everything that had happened in those final seconds. "Like guys said before me, I'm sure whoever wins this series won't be going". You know, instead of acknowledging that the kneeling national anthem protests are a political statement against police brutality targeted towards young people of color.
"We've got to take care of home", he said. In response, Trump disinvited the team. Acquired from Utah at the trade deadline, Hood has played just seven minutes in the Cavs' last seven playoff games.
