Kyrie Irving and LeBron James both spoke with the media after practice on Friday.

“We’re going to take it one day at a time,” he added.
Kevin Love added that the team has to treat every game like it’s Game 7 and that anything can happen.
LeBron James reiterated what his teammates said, that the team has to focus on each game and that records don’t matter from the regular season.
“Everyone’s record is 0-0 when you get to this point,” James added.
