LeBron James got testy with a reporter after Game 2 loss when asked if the Cavs need to win in Cleveland

The Golden State Warriors took a 2-0 lead in the NBA Finals with a 132-113 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 2, and after the game, LeBron James was not in the mood for silly questions.

Despite another valiant effort from LeBron James, who posted a 29-11-14 stat line and lead the Cavs in points, assists, rebounds, steals, and blocks, Cleveland once again couldn't keep pace with Golden State.

Following the game, James took questions from reporters in the locker room as opposed to taking the podium, with ESPN's Brian Windhorst reporting that James has recently been frustrated having to wait for his turn to go up.

While taking questions, LeBron remained amicable after the loss, save for one response to a reporter that asked "LeBron, do you just feel this is a case where you just have to defend home court at this point?"

Down 2-0 heading back to Cleveland, this question is obvious on its face. Of course the Cavs have to defend home court at this point. The alternative is losing the NBA Finals. But James took the question in stride and responded in a manner that can best be described as "Popovichian."

Reporter: LeBron, do you just feel this is a case where you just have to defend home court at this point?

James: Well, are you a smart guy?

Reporter: I think so.

James: Think so? Alright, so if we don't defend home court, what happens?

Reporter: Well, yeah, I know, that's what I'm saying.

James: I'm asking you.

Reporter: Well, yeah, then you guys are looking at getting swept.

James: Alright, so, that answers your question.

Moving on from that exchange, LeBron seemed in fair spirits despite the loss. After another reporter asked if he would need any IV postgame, James replied simply, "No, I'm good. I just need some food and some wine and I'll be all right."

Been there LeBron. Been there.
