On a night LeBron James really felt like giving high fives, things didn’t really work out for him. He really had to force one on Tristan Thompson, and coach David Blatt didn’t really cooperate either.
James was left hanging for a very long time when he tried connecting with Thompson, eventually forcing himself on his teammate. With Blatt, he did get one handshake but was expecting a second one. He didn’t wait around too long for Blatt to realize “the mistake” he has done.
James scored 23 points as the Cavaliers beat the Atlanta Hawks 118-88 to finish the conference finals in a 4-0 sweep, advancing to the NBA finals for the second time in franchise history.
