F LeBron James scored 20 points in Monday's loss at Golden State. He went one-on-one with Golden State F Kevin Durant twice down the stretch, each time with a chance to narrow the gap to one point. But the four-time NBA MVP, under heavy defensive pressure, first fumbled the ball over the end line with 1:10 to go, and then, after two Warriors misses, had a driving attempt blocked by Durant, with the ball going out of bounds with 24.5 seconds to go. On both occasions, James' plea for a foul fell upon deaf ears. "I lost it on the left wing. He got me a little bit, but I lost that one," James admitted of the key turnover, his seventh of the game. "But the one right before the overturn, he fouled me twice. But whatever. What are you going to do about it?"
