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.”
