CLEVELAND, Ohio — Tristan Thompson pulled a LeBron after he didn't like a question from a reporter after a disappointing Game 2.

When Thompson was asked if the Cavs feel "helpless" at times guarding Steph Curry, he stormed off on reporters.

While both losses are devastating, returning home could be the answer the Cavs need to restore a victory and an edge on the Warriors. LeBron James told reporters after Game 2 that the team needs to stay on edge and not feel comfortable.

"We've got an opportunity to go home, and we played some really good basketball on our home floor. But that shouldn't give us any comfort," James told ESPN. "We should still be uncomfortable with the series as we were in Game 1 and as we were tonight."
