LeBron James knows the odds are stacked against the Cavaliers. He’s lost sleep over it.
The Cavs are down 2-0 in the Eastern Conference finals to the Boston Celtics Jimmy Garoppolo Jersey , who can take complete command of the series with a win in Game 3 on Saturday night. Although James has twice overcome 2-0 deficits to win postseason series, that doesn’t make the challenge any easier.
”I mean, I lose sleep,” the three-time champion said following the team’s morning shootaround. ”At the end of the day, when you lose any game in the postseason Will Hernandez Jersey Giants , it’s never comfort. Playoffs is never comfort. There’s nothing about the playoffs that’s comfortable until you either win it all or you lose and go into the summer.
”So for me it’s always day to day grind to figure out ways that you can be better.”
Only 19 of 300 teams (6 percent) have overcome a 2-0 deficit to win, but two of them were Cleveland squads led by James.

James is trying to reach the NBA Finals for the eighth straight time, a feat accomplished only by Celtics greats Bill Russell, Sam Jones, Frank Ramsey and Tommy Heinsohn.
