SPEAKING
``We've been in this position before. We've been down 2-0 and came back and won a series. So it's nothing new to us. But we don't want to go down 2-0 against this team.'' - Cleveland's LeBron James after Thursday night's 85-76 Game 1 loss to San Antonio. The Cavaliers overcame an 0-2 deficit against Detroit to make the finals for the first time.
