Despite Game 1 Dominance, Pacers Believe They Can Play Better

LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers Despite Game 1 Dominance, Pacers Believe They Can Play Better
Noah Ferguson | 17 April, 2018, 03:06

Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James flicks out a pass against the Indiana Pacers' Bojan Bogdanovic. Victor Oladipo led the way with 32 points six rebounds and four assists. The most common way to score a triple double in the National Basketball Association is through points, assists, and rebounds - like James managed to do (24 points with 12 assists and 10 rebounds) against the Pacers at Quicken Loans Arena.

The defeat also means the 33-year-old now lost a first round game for the first time since 2012 when the New York Knicks beat the Miami Heat.

Fortunately for IN, most of those shots didn't fall on Sunday, when the Cavs went just 8-for-34 (23.5 percent) from 3-point range. As it turns out, IN could hardly have done better, and it is the owner's heavily favored team that will have to give something much closer to its best to wrest the series back from a fired-up Oladipo and his teammates.

This is all new to James, who had won 21 consecutive first-round games and lost a postseason for the first time in his 13th playoffs.

"He's been a guy who has created a lot of things for us on both ends of the floor".

The Cavaliers continued their push in the early stages of the final period, with James' layup with 10:29 to go in the game making it a seven-point contest at 76-69.

The NBA playoffs rarely get upsets in the first round, but the Pacers downing the three-time defending East champions would certainly raise some eyebrows.

"We got out hard defensively, showing LeBron some bodies", Oladipo said.

Meanwhile, James Harden scored 44 points on 15-of-26 shooting with eight assists to help the Rockets escape game one with a 104-101 win over the Timberwolves. He shot an impressive 6-of-9 from the three-point country while the entire Cavaliers roster were tied down to only eight threes. That's why we came to play this game is to win, not just to come here and just be OK. IN was swept by Cleveland in last year's opening round.

With his seventh field goal of the night James passed Michael Jordan for the most postseason field goals in league history, and now resides in second place with 2,189 scores in the playoffs. If we make them, we make them.

Stephenson, when asked about his contributions to the Pacers' emphatic 98-80 win, described his energy as "contagious".

Wednesday night's game two at Quicken Loans Arena has now turned into their biggest game of the season. You obviously have take the good with the bad when it comes to Lance but at least the Pacers know he isn't going to just disappear in this series.

The Pacers know how hard it will be to win two games in a row in Cleveland. "We've got to be ready for anything they throw our way". "He's a tough player and you've got to play your best when you play against him". They have LeBron, after all, and they were on national television 39 times. No other starter broke the double figures mark in scoring though Kevin Love did grab 17 rebounds: J.R. Smith (15 points) and Larry Nance Jr. So, we take it as everybody has to dig deep and not lose two of them on our home floor."Jeff Green's a vet with playoff experience".
