Defeated LeBron James Admits: I’ve Never Played Against This Much Firepower
Following his team’s third straight loss to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals, an exasperated LeBron James said Wednesday night that his rivals possess “probably the most firepower I’ve played in my career.” James and his Cleveland Cavaliers fell again, in a 118-113 loss, with the Warriors now one win away from the championship. The Cavs had by six points with 3 minutes and 9 seconds left in the game—before Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and the rest of the team closed on an 11-0 run. “I said it after we won the Eastern Conference finals that we’re getting ready for a juggernaut,” James said. “I played against some great teams, but I don’t think no team has had this type of firepower.” Game 4 begins at 9 p.m. ET on Friday night in Cleveland.
