«Stay off TV. Stay off social media,» James said, via Sports Illustrated. «You win a game, they’re all the best players in the world. You lose a game, they’re throwing dirt at you. It’s literally that simple. It’s all about training your mind for the next challenge…
«If you have a show to watch, one of your favorite movies or if you like to listen to music, or if you’re reading books, whatever the case may be, playing cards with the family, whatever. When you watch the other playoff games , watch them in silence and put music in the background. That’s what I do.»

James had 21 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in the win. Anthony Davis added 25 points, 13 rebounds, three assists and three steals in a strong comeback performance.
Los Angeles won the game 127-97.
«We’re one of the best defensive teams in the league, if not the best,» James said. «For us to reach our potential, we have to defend at a high level. No team in this league tests you more than Golden State, so we have to be on the lookout for a test on every possession.»
