"I always believe the role players play much better at home than they do on the road", James told reporters in Cleveland on Tuesday.

Curry later added, "I agree with 'Bron" and teammate Kevin Durant concurred, saying, "I'm sure whoever wins this series won't be going". "The way we handled things a year ago. we'll stay consistent with that".

After the Warriors practiced, guard Stephen Curry said that he agreed with James's take and the team would likely not visit the White House if they repeat as National Basketball Association champs.

"Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team", the president tweeted in September. Steph Curry led the way in Game 2 as he poured in a game-high 33 points, hitting an NBA Finals-record nine 3-pointers on 17 attempts.

James and the Cavaliers are now down 0-2 in their best-of-seven series against the Golden State Warriors.

Teams leading 2-0 have won the finals 88 per cent of the time but no team leading 3-0 has ever lost, something that keeps the Warriors hungry and the Cavaliers desperate. "I think that's powerful, being in this situation".

The decision came after Trump said the team wanted to send a smaller delegation due to the dispute over whether NFL players must stand during the playing of the national anthem. But hopefully, I'm glad maybe if we didn't have any, I'm glad they didn't give it to me. Curry sounded proud of the Eagles players who decided not to go to the White House. The Warriors inserted McGee into the starting lineup and reaped the rewards before Curry put on the finishing touches with a flurry in the fourth quarter.

"No matter what has gone on in the series, when you change venues, you've got to reassert your dominance and try to find that right momentum to start", he said. It's incredible that they've each made it back this many times without a hiccup, and it's hard to imagine we could see a fifth-straight Finals showdown.

"It's a tie between MJ and Kob", Durant said. Acquired from Utah at the trade deadline, Hood has played just seven minutes in the Cavs' last seven playoff games. "We have an opportunity to come home and protect home, as Golden State has done". In response, Trump disinvited the team.
