In what has been a war of words battle between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors during these NBA Finals, it did not stop. Cavaliers swingman Richard Jefferson, who has made an impact this series went in on Klay Thompson who basically suggest that Cavaliers were doing “dirty” acts during the game. What Thompson is referring to is when Timofey Mosgov game him an hard screen and he got hurt a little bit and he was sent to the locker room for a short period of time.This what Jefferson told The Vertical’s own Chris Mannix:
“If it’s a man’s game, shut up about the [illegal screen] … Or don’t say anything about LeBron. Klay, he’s like my little brother. But we can’t contradict ourselves.”4
All this talk can settle on the hardwood tonight in Cleveland because if Golden State win they are the champions again and if they lose, it will be an Game 7 on Sunday. Jefferson is basically calling Thompson out and does not really care at all. All of this is not necessary, but this has been an heated NBA Finals.
