And it still wasn't enough. "It won't be Cleveland or Golden State going".
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.
"It's typical of him", James said of Trump's situation with the Eagles. "We've played some really good basketball on our home floor". When we get into a dynasty is Michael Jordan and them winning six, that's a dynasty. He finished with 33 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists - his 10th triple-double in the Finals which is now an NBA Finals record. Incredible as it is to say, James is playing at a higher level this season while Kevin Love, who looked lost for much of the 2016 series, has been quietly efficient with 43 points and 23 rebounds over the first two games. "They're just trying to do good deeds".
Klay Thompson added 20 points playing on a tender left leg to put the defending champions two wins from a repeat title they have talked about since the season started in mid-October.
"We had our chances", James said. "We were ultra-aggressive in that first half, myself included". "I remember I was sitting in the third quarter and start of the fourth where I couldn't hear anybody on our side of the ball talking".
"I saw LeBron score 29 out of 30 against the Pistons, I said that was the best playoff performance I'd seen since I've been on television", NBA legend Charles Barkley told NBA TV.
His dagger three to seal the game was worth the top spot alone.
They were asking for trouble. No foul was called on Curry, but instead a technical foul was called on Cavaliers' coach Tyronn Lue for protesting the lack of a call.
Curry squatted low to admire his shot as it went in at one point and galloped back in joy after he hit two deep threes late in the first half. That's what this team does.
"It's my job to make sure that we're as focused, laser focused as possible, do my job, and continue to instill confidence into my teammates until the last horn sounds".
All-Star Kevin Love said Tuesday the Cavaliers are focusing on communication on defense to spark their offense and get more punch to stand up to the Warriors.
How do the Cavaliers reckon with the fact that they are down 3-0 against a team that can martial so many ways of beating you, a team that is clearly superior to theirs? Not even the most optimistic Cleveland fan could expect that to change in the coming days.
Another outspoken critic of Trump, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he longed for the day when the White House visit was again a celebration of athletic achievement.
"That margin for error is so little, so thin against them, I think in some cases you have to be ideal", Love said.
