LeBron James, Tyronn Lue have shouting match in loss to Blazers (VIDEO)
Things can get heated on an NBA sideline, especially when things aren’t going well. Then again, with the Cleveland Cavaliers it seems like there’s always simmering underneath the surface.
On Thursday night as the Cavs took on the Portland Trail Blazers, things boiled over between LeBron James and head coach Tyronn Lue. During an exchange in the first quarter, the two started shouting at each other from opposite ends of the bench.
What it was about we’re not sure, although Cleveland had blown several rotations on Blazers weakside baseline cutters, so perhaps that was the culprit.
LeBron did get off what I think is the candidate for dunk of the year over Jusuf Nurkic, although Portland walked away with the win, 113-105.
Cleveland has had more drama than a scripted reality show this season, and no doubt reporters are going to ask Lue and LeBron about this interaction in the coming days.
