(Reuters) – LeBron James said Monday he doesn’t want the upper and lower parts of the NBA Finals to get better, he chose to focus on correcting the mistakes that caused his Los Angeles Lakers to fall 115-104 on the Miami Heat. On sunday.
The Lakers have a 2-1 advantage in the best-of-seven series, but the team had one night in Game Three, with a turnover of 20 and a short-handed hit that left the team with a number of defensive breakdowns.
Frustrated James left the court with 10 seconds left to play Sunday’s game, but P ve further said that the team would be better on Tuesday.
“We’re able to understand the losses and why we lost. We had to do better and understand what we can do better in the next game.”
“Obviously, no one ever wants to lose. You hate that feeling, especially when you know you haven’t done your best, and from a personal point of view I certainly wasn’t my last night.
“So I take on that responsibility and I take it with a lot of enthusiasm and understanding of how I can get better in the following game.
James, 35, is two away from his fourth championship and said his experience has helped him appreciate the importance of managing his emotions.
He said, “During the whole post ason not, I also quarrel.
“As I grew up in this sport and as I grew over the years, I was always overwhelmed, realizing that there was always another chance to get better.
“We have that opportunity today and tomorrow night in the game.”
This year’s NBA Finals will have a season like no other, with the game resuming in July after a four-month hiatus with all the games held at Disney World in Florida to limit the risk from the novel’s coronavirus.
