LeBron James can score 51 points in a Finals game, and it's not enough.

Cleveland has received solid contributions from Kevin Love in this series, and conventional wisdom suggests that its role players will shoot better and exhibit greater confidence at home.

While they now hold a 2-0 series, the Warriors will be well aware of just how impressive the Cavaliers have been at home this postseason.

LeBron James said this afternoon that neither the Cavaliers nor the Warriors will visit the White House next year if they win.

Baseball's 2004 Boston Red Sox, who came back to defeat the New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series, are the lone non-hockey team to manage the feat.

During the ensuing huddle, James didn't interact with teammates and didn't respond when several tried to engage him, including Jeff Green. During his media availability Tuesday, James explained precisely what was going through his head as the Cavs squandered a golden opportunity to win Game 1.
