Larry Nance jr. is speechless after tonight's game

LeBron James GETTYLeBron James recorded a triple-double in Game 1

The situation was dire, requiring dominance.

LeBron James delivered one of his vintage playoff performances as he scored 46 points and led the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 100-97 win over the Indiana Pacers to even the series at 1-1. Right out the gate, LeBron's first 16 points were the only points scored by the Cavaliers as they jumped out to an early lead.

"Coach Lue called up the first play for me and it went down", James said. He didn't get back on the floor. IN fought was and were an open Victor Oladipo three away from tying the game and sending it into overtime.

"I have a clean appearance, I took and that I missed, &rdquo". And again. And then one more time.

IN were 15 points down after the first quarter but came back into it in the latter stages with Victor Oladipo missing a clean look from beyond the arc to tie the game with just one minute left. Both Darren Collison and Bojan Bogdanovic shot uncharacteristically poor in Game 1 and should be better in Game 2.

Pacers was led by guard Victor Oladipo's 22 points and six assists. Second-leading scorer Bojan Bogdanovic is just 8-of-23 in the first two games and 1-of-9 from three-point range.

"We blew a coverage and we were lucky and I'd rather be on time, on target than to be lucky", James said.

James was expected to be more aggressive in game two and was unstoppable in the first half. "But we ran the same first play until they stopped it".


"Defensively, I wanted to be in tune, and I wanted to try and get my guys involved as well". He also led the league in minutes played for the second consecutive season with just under 37 minutes per game.

The Cavaliers shook up their roster significantly prior to the trade deadline, and James acknowledged Wednesday that it impacted the team's playoff preparation, per McMenamin. Korver added in 12 points on four of eight shooting from distance.

LeBron James came out with that mentality on Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena and turned into a scoring machine the Indiana Pacers couldn't contain. Game 3 will be Saturday in Utah. "It's not going to feel great tomorrow, but throw some ice on it, tape it up and be ready to go".

Golden State won the championship in 2015 and 2017, with Cleveland taking out the 2016 title.

Despite the loss, Indiana's locker room was filled with confidence. "We're very, very confident".

Thunder's "big three": While all three members of this group had solid games (Westbrook had 19 points with 13 assists and nine rebounds), but none of them stepped in the fourth quarter, when Thunder was outscored 28-16.

James has gone dark for the playoffs this season as he has for the past multiple, flipping the switch into playoff mood.
