What Had Happened Was: 1/17/17
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
In round two between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers this season, the Warriors jumped on the Cavs early and beat them into the ground in a convincing 126-91 victory. LeBron James’ bad acting showed up (although, one could argue it was great acting since Draymond Green picked up the flagrant 1 foul), the Warriors’ big three each posted more the 20 points and, now, Warriors fans can take a deep sigh of relief after the Christmas Day debacle from last month.
The two worst plus/minus showings of LeBron James's career…
