LeBron James Shoves Red Hot Steph Curry To The Ground
LeBron James is 6’8 and 250 lbs after playing 48 minutes. Steph Curry is 6’3 and 185 lbs while carrying a team on his back. During the first quarter of the Cavs and Warriors MLK Day game, King James got a little aggressive and shoved the much smaller Curry to the ground after the two got tangled up. Curry might have done a little acting (not as good as LeBron in ‘Trainwreck’) but the foul on LeBron was warranted.
Normally plays like this will cause an all-star, like Curry, to heat up. That wasn’t necessary as Curry was already on fire and finished the opening quarter with 16 points as the Warriors took a 34 – 21 lead going into the 2nd. Things only got worse for the Cavs in the 2nd as the Warriors took a 70-44 lead going into the half behind 21 by Curry.
