Lue calls out Barkley, defends Cavs' 3 pursuit

Cavs coach Tryonn Lue believes there's no "place in our game" for taking an opponent out -- tactics that TNT analyst Charles Barkley proposed after the Hawks fell in a 2-0 series hole Wednesday.

Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer had no response to TNT analyst Charles Barkley saying the Hawks should "take somebody out" after the Cavs made a record 25 3-pointers, setting the record late in a Game 2 blowout. Budenholzer also said he wasn't upset that the Cavs kept shooting 3's late either.

Atlanta trailed by 36 points by halftime at Cleveland on Wednesday night after giving up 18 of what would become an NBA-record 25 3-pointers. At least the Hawks recognized how to turn things around.

Asked if he has ever thought what it would be like to be able to play like J.R. Smith, LeBron James chuckled. "That is almost a trick question right there," James cracked. "What do you mean? That you can shoot any shot that you want?"
