Lebron Apologizes To Tristan Thompson After Sideline Screaming Match
The slumping Cleveland Cavs righted the ship a bit with a win yesterday over the Indiana Pacers.
But it took them two overtimes and a shouting matching between Tristan Thompson and Lebron James to get there.
Thompson and James were at odds over Thompson’s help defense on Paul George, who ended up scoring 43 and 16 straight in OT.
Heres the play that ignited the huddle skirmish fire, LeBron & Thompson were arguing how to hedge on George (who was making it rain). Fail. pic.twitter.com/Q2PY2B1dIr

James went in on Thompson — who aggressively returned fire.
After the game, James admitted he was in the wrong.
“I have to do a better job of not showing up my teammates out on the floor. I had the right intentions in my mind, but I had the wrong intentions come out of my mouth,” James told Fox Sports Ohio in an interview on the court after the final whistle. “I take full responsibility for that as the leader of the team. So I got to be a lot better at that and be able to keep that in-house in the locker room and when we’re watching film.”
Do you think the Cavs can get their act together for another Finals run?
