Give Oklahoma City credit, they played much better than when they appeared in Cleveland. Yes, the Cavaliers eventually wore them down, but this Thunder team hustled, made the Cavaliers work for everything and beat them on the boards. Ultimately the Cavs won because they out shot the Thunder hitting more than 55 percent from the floor. LeBron James played masterfully, scoring 31. Mo Williams backed him up with 20 points and Delonte West added 18.
Mike Brown on the Cavs winning three consecutive on the road:
I have to pat my guys on the back. It’s the third game of a trip. With the crowd here in Oklahoma City, I thought out guys stayed focused. Hung in there. Hung in there and won the game in the fourth like you have to do sometimes on the road. My guys deserve credit for staying poised and hanging in there to win.LeBron James on the team putting the game away in the second half:
We just picked our defense up and started making shots. Once we start making shots it’s hard to contain us.Game: Cavs (22-4) at Oklahoma City Thunder (3-24)
He’s a guy who has a nice stroke and you know that’s what he does well. Anytime anyone is shooting it as well as he was at the time you hope they don’t go down with an injury because it can mess with their rhythm a little bit. If it does, he’ll shoot his way out of it because he is a shooter, a scorer and he has confidence and we have confidence in him.LeBron James on his relationship with Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant:
It’s pretty solid. I can say that anytime Kevin needs help from me, he can give me a call, for advice for anything. I let him know that when he was coming out of college that I wanted to help him because being the No. 1 pick and trying to save a franchise, I’ve been in that position.
