Lebron James walked off the court after aÂ disappointmentÂ performance without looking at the fans or talking to anyone. He dressed quickly in the locker room and put on his headset and left to the team bus without talking to reporters. This is the first time he has done than.
James had 25 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in his least spectacular game of the series. He went scoreless in the second quarter, allowing the Magic to go ahead by 18 points at the half with little help from teammates.
“We can’t put it all on him,” Cavs forward Joe Smith said. “He needs some help.”
“You need a total team effort to win,” Magic forward Rashard Lewis said. “LeBron’s a great player, but at the same time, you need more than one guy. You need five guys. You need guys coming off the bench.”
The Cavaliers only lost 20 games this season. Six of them to the Orlando MagicÂ and five came in Amway Arena.
“We had one goal in mind but we came up short,” Cavs coach Mike Brown said. “Sometimes you need a little luck at time in order win an NBA championship. Everything we did this year wasn’t skill and heart. We had some luck. Not taking anything away from Magic. I felt our guys laid it on the line.”
