But it wasn't enough when Curry answered with a three-point play followed by Smith's miscue. Schwarz says "Well, did you discuss it at all with him at the end of the play?" "He's been in the league a long time".

The Warriors had a little help from the Rockets, who couldn't buy a 3-point basket.

Thompson was also confused as to why he was ejected. "That's what I take pride in more than anything, is being available to my teammates every single day", James said. "I think his confidence level in his shot is the biggest thing".

"Tonight we played as well as we've played all postseason, and we gave ourselves a chance possession after possession after possession", James said.

Referee Tony Brothers explained why Thompson was ejected. "I'm happy for him". "So that's why I called the foul and ejected him".

"He doesn't walk around acting like he's carrying a team, like he's carrying an organization", Cavaliers guard Kyle Korver said. I knew I was outside the charge line, so that's what the communication was to us.

Thompson did not disclose what Green said.

"This was a part of our story that we hadn't been through before", he said. Somebody asked, 'It's four years in a row getting to The Finals, do you appreciate it?' Yes, because it's really hard. "It wasn't much verbal".

"I've always kind of told you guys that I don't really have a ceiling".

The Cavs were in a sour mood because of that and the overturned call.

James referenced a postgame interview with ESPN's Cassidy Hubbarth from March, when he declared he felt the best he has in his entire career, to illustrate the reason for his extended prime. "So it doesn't make sense to go review something if - the review is if he's on the line or if he's close to the charge circle, that's the review. Durant serves as advisor to the CEO at Alaska Airlines, working alongside CEO Brad Tilden and other employees to develop programming and support for at-risk youth in Bay Area communities", an Alaska Airlines spokesperson said. It's a huge play.

After the game, Smith maintained he believed his team was going to call a timeout, while his coach, Tyronn Lue, believed Smith thought the Cavaliers were up one point and was trying to dribble out the clock.

After the game, LeBron James seemed to be looking ahead rather than dwell on the Smith's contribution to the loss.

"I know everybody has been saying and writing that it's going to be easy. So we had to change it to a blocking foul". He has averaged 34 points, 9.2 rebounds and 8.8 assists per game in the playoffs. The latter has been in the NBA's concussion protocol due to injury in the Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals series against the Celtics and may miss at least Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals.
