Poised Pacers ready for Cavs

Game 1 went to the Pacers as IN soundly defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers on their home court 98-80.

All of this is why the 18-point defeat at the hands of IN in Game 1 should serve as a wake-up call to every Cavalier not named LeBron James.

The Pacers shot over 45 percent from the field, hit eleven 3-pointers and forced 16 turnovers.

James had a triple-double against the Pacers in a 98-80 game-one home loss Monday (AEST), but the 33-year-old went 10 minutes at the start of the game before taking his first shot and by then in led 25-8. The Cavs got within seven in the fourth, but Oladipo, once a role player who has blossomed into an All-Star in his first season with in, hit a big 3-pointer and Bojan Bogdanovic helped put Cleveland away with a 3 to make it 88-71. This is the least talented team LeBron has played on since the first time he was on the Cavs.

"We're looking at it but I'm not going to talk about it", he said. He looked lost offensively, shooting an imperfect 0-for-7 in Game 1 against the Indiana Pacers and going 0-for-3 from three-point range.

Obviously, the Cavs can't let that happen again in Game 2, and on Monday head coach Ty Lue said the key to making sure it doesn't happen is LeBron James' aggressiveness. I thought we kind of lost it there for a little bit in that second half. We're fully aware of his team, and we realize it's not going to be easy, but that doesn't mean we're just going to come in here and just fold. Indiana's 98-80 Game One jurisdiction against the Cavaliers was the start of what one (Oladipo) might call "shocking the world".

The second half started out with a 6-0 IN run extending their lead to a game-high 23 points. That changed with a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of their playoff series.

With Victor Oladipo leading the way, the Pacers outscored the Cavaliers 33-14 in the first quarter and they were never able to get closer than eight points for the remainder of the match. This contributed to them scoring 38 points in the paint on 18 fastbreak points.

Rozier added three free throws to provide the final margin. Right now, I'm focused on Game 2. He makes elite defensive plays, blows by defenders with his speed and stops on a dime to hit pull-up 3-pointers.

The Timberwolves had a one-point lead with about seven minutes left when Houston used a 9-0 run, with the last seven points from Harden, to make it 94-86 with about four minutes to go.
