The Warriors would have to make major changes in order to acquire James, who has made it clear in the past that he won't accept anything less than the max salary. With the Warriors focused on James, he fired a bullet pass to point guard George Hill, who would have had a wide open layup had he not been fouled.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James expects his teammates to step up their game when the NBA Finals shift to the Quicken Loans Arena on Wednesday, a boost his team will need to avoid falling into a 3-0 hole in the best-of-seven series.

James simply can't do it all for this team.

James, who is facing the Warriors in the finals, told reporters that the victor of the series would not be going to the White House. I'm not surprised. It's typical of him and, I don't know, I mean, I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyways. Not about tomorrow. I feel great about our opportunity.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue plans to switch up his rotation and play forward Rodney Hood, whose role has been reduced since the start of the post-season.

James, after joking on Tuesday that he had finally gotten Game 1 out of his head, said he remembered sitting on the bench and contemplating the last few seconds of regulation, which included a missed free throw and Smith's blunder.

In the Eastern Conference finals, the Cavs won all three of their home games against the Boston Celtics by comfortable margins but were blown out in three of the four games they played at TD Garden.

The Cavs and Warriors are set to square off in Game 3 of The Finals.

"Damn cameras", James said with a big grin before agreeing to recall his thoughts in that "heartbreaking loss". James also wondered if he should have called timeout right away or if the Cavaliers even had one left.

"I think there's a good chance he'll play", Kerr said.

"LeBron, this crowd and their environment, we know the kind of force they're going to bring. I guess y'all probably seen the reaction from that point on".

With James facing another Finals loss, Colin Cowherd believes that the best thing for the National Basketball Association would be for the Warriors to "humiliate" James and the Cavs, forcing the star to leave Cleveland and start anew in either Philadelphia, Los Angeles or Houston.
