LeBron James deactivated 'chill mode' after Tobias Harris talked trash

New, comments

NEVER make LeBron deactivate chill mode.

Tobias Harris learned a valuable lesson on Friday night: never, ever, EVER talk trash to LeBron James. Nothing good can come of it. Via

Midway through the third, Harris was going to work on James in the mid-post area and to create some separation; he flung his elbows around in the vicinity of James' face. James backed up to avoid the connection, but he took exception and said something to Harris. The two jawed back and forth at one another and had to be separated. While walking away, Harris yelled, "Stop flopping."


From that point on James dominated Harris, going 5-of-7 in the final 17 minutes. He scored 15 of his game-high 29 points in the fourth. After that alteration with James, Harris only scored one point. He finished with 17 points on 6-of-12.

Total badass quote by LeBron: "I was actually in chill mode tonight but chill mode was deactivated after that."
