And if they listen to general consensus - and they swear they don't - they have a better chance of collectively starring in a Broadway revival of "Macbeth" than beating the Warriors.
It didn't stop James in Game 1; he scored 51 points, the most in a Finals game by anyone since Michael Jordan in 1993 and only the sixth overall. "And then I just come back and be myself and play the next day", Smith said. "So, it's a lot of pressure depending on how you look at it but I tell him all the time, he has a opportunity to play with me as well". It's been a little different vibe, but that's OK. Nonetheless, this just further demonstrates the type of all-around unique talent that he possesses that makes him a hard cover for any opposing defense.
The Warriors rolled into the locker room with a 59-46 lead at halftime of Game 2.
This was something which James emphasised when talking to the media about the incident, as he said: "We've got to move on".
"I didn't take smart shots".

LeBron James pulls out shorts suit for Game 2
Over his last four Finals appearances against Cleveland , the former Cavalier is shooting 67 percent - 18-of-27 - from the floor. Curry, Thompson and Durant combined for 39 points, while LeBron James almost recorded a triple-double in the first half alone.
"Some of it, I think, is not specific to the Cavs as much as I think", Magnus said. Hill was unable to get a shot off in time and the game went to overtime.
"I'm not anxious about my makes or misses". You play on his team, you're playing with the best player in the world and you get to witness some great, historic things and be a part of it. "But I'm glad I was able to contribute and do other stuff as well when my shot wasn't falling and help us get the W", Durant said.
The Warriors will evaluate Klay Thompson after pregame warmups to see how he does on his sprained left ankle suffered in the first quarter of Game 1 when J.R. Smith slid into him. Only Durant, Shaquille O'Neal and Michael Jordan scored 25 or more in their first 11 Finals games.
Cleveland was eight games better at home than on the road during the regular season and has been especially impressive in the playoffs.
Kevin Durant added 26 points, Klay Thompson had 20 and JaVale McGee added 12 to spark the Warriors. And, from a ticket standpoint, the Warriors said interest was about the same as in past years, with the resale market even being slightly up from where it was a year ago for Game 1.
