Per Sports Illustrated, James questioned a reporter for asking about which team is under more pressure following the Cavs’ 121-87 loss in Game 6:

LeBron on the narrative that there’s more pressure on the Cavs than the Pacers to win this series: “I feel like you just made that up” https://t.co/K6sq5lJ7iZ
After James’ heroics in Game 5 on Wednesday when he hit the game-winning three-point shot at the buzzer, the Cavaliers had a chance to close out their first-round series against the Pacers on Friday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
Instead, the Pacers handed James his first 30-plus-point playoff loss since Game 2 of the 2016 NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors.
James’ teams have never lost a first-round postseason series since in his career.
