CLEVELAND-- The Cavaliers return to Cleveland for Games 3 and 4 of the NBA Finals with a two-game deficit.
Head coach Tyronn Lue, Kyrie Irving and LeBron James spoke with members of the media Tuesday afternoon. They all focused on how they need to be more aggressive, both individually and as a team.
“I have to just have the mindset to continually be aggressive,” Irving said. “Just being the general out there.”
“I try to do whatever it takes to help our team win,” James said. “My game doesn’t waiver one way or another… I do everything. For me, after Game 2, I said I have to play better.”
Lue said James needs to stay in attack mode throughout the game, but also talked about being more aggressive as a coach.
“Just have my team ready to play. Just taking advantage of mismatches,” Lue said. “They are taking advantage of our switching… They put you at some disadvantages.”
Kevin Love flew back with the team, but did not practice on Tuesday. Lue said he remains in concussion protocol and will be reevaluated on Wednesday. The head coach would not elaborate on the back-up plan if Love is unable to play.
Game 3 is Wednesday at 9 p.m. at Quicken Loans Arena. It's a best-of-seven series.
