Tyronn Lue: We Were ‘Too Nice’ First Three Games

Pushing, shoving, trash talk, a general disdain for the opponent: Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue can’t get enough of it.

After climbing back into the NBA Finals with a 137-116 win over the Golden State Warriors in Game 4 — a game that featured seven technical fouls between the two teams and also a flagrant foul on Kevin Love for a hit on Kevin Durant — Lue wants that same approach in Monday’s Game 5. “Me personally, I liked it,” Lue said of the testy nature of Friday’s game. “I thought the first two games [we] were being too nice. The first three games, helping guys up off the floor, smiling, talking to guys and — yeah, I didn’t like that. So I think Game 4, talking trash, being physical, whatever you got to do to try to get that edge to win, you got to do it.”

James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
