Authentic Youth Josh Smith Jersey “What do you want us to do?” Lue said after Monday’s game. “I mean, they beat us. They won one game. They won. Yeah, we’re going to shake it off. We got to. We’ve got  more games left.”
There’s no use parsing this one out. It was an abjectly brutal game for the Cavs. Cleveland gave up a season-high 126 points (including a wild 78 in the first half) as LeBron James suffered what tied for the worst regular-season loss of his 14-season career, in terms of scoring margin. The Cavs were dominated in just about every facet, as Golden State outshot them 50.5 percent to 35.2 percent from the field and 44.1 percent to 26.5 percent from 3, out-rebounded them 58-35 and out-assisted them 37-11.
“They put it on us,” James said. “They put it on us real good.”
On Sunday night, McDermott played the way Butler has been playing for the Bulls all season. The Bulls trust that when they need to make shots late in the game, they can give it to Butler and he will take care of business. But Butler is smart enough to know that when another teammate has got the hot hand, he needs to find that player as quickly as possible.
“When I was rolling in the second quarter he came up to me and said, ‘Keep coming to the ball. … I’m not feeling it right now so let’s continue to get you shots,'” McDermott said. “It just shows a lot about him, very unselfish. We want him to be selfish in the fourth quarter.”

At 27, Butler has gotten to the point in his career where he feels he can take over the game whenever he wants. He trusts his teammates, but he trusts himself more. He believes he has put in the work to dominate whenever he desires, as he did in the waning moments of Sunday’s win.
“I feel like I’m going to deliver with every shot that I take,” Butler said. “Make or miss I think they’re all going in … [my teammates] trust me with the ball in my hands as of late.”
As Butler quickly walked off the floor after the game, the Grizzlies fan who spent the night heckling Butler was left to wonder what might have been. Before heading to the exits, the fan said something to one of his buddies. It’s a common mistake that fans all over the league have made all season when they try to yell at Butler during games.
“I pissed him off,” the fan said.
