Despite scoring a game-high 25 points Friday night against the Warriors, Cavaliers foward LeBron James left Oracle Arena with the loss.
Following the game, the four-time MVP was pretty tough on himself and his team:
“Offensively we just didn’t have it. No one had it. We just tried to continue to give ourselves an opportunity. Myself, I wasn’t very good offensively, inefficient. That just trickled down to everybody else and we missed out on a great opportunity."
A day later, LeBron took to Twitter to praise Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and the sell-out crowd that showed up on Christmas Day.
and the rest of them boys on Xmas day! All about the competition from start to finish. Can't take those moments for granted. #Blessed— LeBron James (@KingJames) December 26, 2015
The Cavaliers aren't scheduled to return to Oracle during the regular season, but with the best record in the Eastern Conference (19-8 through Friday), they could potentially be back in June for an NBA Finals rematch with the 28-1 Warriors.
