LeBron James' still has a bloodshot eye

Warriors fans will not let J.R. Smith live down his Game 1 blunder.

"After thinking about it a lot the last 24 hours", he said.

"I'd rather a guy not get suspended", he said after practice Saturday.

In the previous three NBA Finals matchups between the Cavaliers and Warriors, the series has been tied 1-1 once, while Golden State took a 2-0 lead in the last two championship series.

"I might have said that", Smith said.

And there's another Cavs headache - Durant and everybody else getting better - which they wanted to show in Game 2 Sunday, when they sought to keep their home-court advantage.

The Warriors, energized by Smith's mental lapse and the huge bullet they dodged at the end of regulation, dominated overtime 17-7 and won 124-114. "I've always been the one guy who's the butt of the jokes, or that one guy who does something insane and everybody's got to look at or whatever the case may be".

"We've got to move on", LeBron James said. We see what we need to do and how we need to perform to win. So you can say (that) somebody (should) meet you at the bus, (but) I'm not (going).

Michael Dellegrazie, the owner, said the dog was alive when the flight from Phoenix, Ariz., landed at the airport around 6:30 a.m. Delta still uses temperature guidelines, aircraft type and other factors to determine whether pets can travel in cargo.

"The game's over. There's nothing we can do about it", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.

LeBron James shot a postseason career-high 51 points but became the first player in history to score 50-plus points in the Finals and be on a losing team. The whole J.R. Smith scenario was a bit of a headache.

Hood may have felt pressure at Duke, but being on LeBron's team can not compare because of the stuff that goes along with being one of James's teammates.

James wore a similar outfit for Game 1, causing quite the uproar on the Internet.

This was something which James emphasised when talking to the media about the incident, as he said: "We've got to move on". But despite that, they only led by four points as LeBron James were able to stick right with them, thanks in large part to their ability to get to the free-throw line. "So, it's a lot of pressure depending on how you look at it but I tell him all the time, he has a opportunity to play with me as well".

"The best thing he can do is just go out there and be himself".

Now the only question is what will he wear before Game 2? "If we're going to be that petty to do that, so be it". Put ourselves in a (position) to win the game.

The game went to overtime, the Cavs lost, and the opposing coach, Steve Kerr, admitted the defending champion Warriors "got lucky".
