CLEVELAND– “No excuses.” That’s what LeBron James had to say early Friday morning after the Cavs 103-82 loss to the Warriors in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. The series is now tied 2-2.
James answered questions about what happened to him in the second quarter. He took a foul, hitting his head on a camera near the sidelines as he slid out of bounds. His head was bleeding for a few minutes, but after trainers assisted him, he came right back to the game.
He told reporters, “I didn’t go through any concussion protocol. Had a slight headache. Got a few stitches. I’ll be fine.”
James and the rest of the team now must look ahead to Game 5 Sunday in Oakland. “If I told my team six months ago we’d be 2-2 in Finals with 3 games to play, we’d take it. We just have to compete.”
As for some of the fans leaving Game 4 early, James said, “I left the game early too. Can’t blame them.”
