LeBron has Cavs one win away from NBA Finals
INDEPENDENCE, Ohio— LeBron James says he won’t allow his sore body to slow his drive toward another NBA Finals.
Beaten down by injuries and another grueling season, James has the Cavaliers one win from the Eastern Conference title.
On Monday, a day after his 37 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists lifted Cleveland to a Game 3 overtime victory against Atlanta, James was noticeably tired.
He wore a wrap on his right calf and the four-time league MVP says he’s been undergoing “round-the-clock” treatment.
James said, “It’s the playoffs; the playoffs should take a toll on your body, where you feel exhausted at the end of it. That’s how I play.. You shouldn’t feel great leaving a playoff game– ever.” LeBron’s goal remains to “win the whole thing.”
James returned to Cleveland after four seasons with Miami and says leading the Cavs has been his biggest challenge. The Cavs are without Kevin Love for the playoffs and have played the past two games without All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving.
Coach David Blatt says Irving remains a game-time decision for Game 4.
