LeBron Favors Road Games Over Playing at Home


The Cleveland Cavaliers open their Eastern Conference semifinals against the Toronto Raptors at home on Monday, but LeBron James would be just as comfortable — if not more — playing Game 1 north of the border.

“I just like the adversity of the road,” James said after practice Friday. “Home cooking is great; love the home fans for 14 years. But I love playing out on the road more than I love playing at home. It’s just a weird thing. I love the adversity, I love the ‘Tonight is not the night’ LeBron slogans. I love the ‘You’re overrated’ and all those things. I like all that.”
