LeBron James collected a triple-double in the defeat for the Cavaliers. Along with his 32 points, the University of IN product added six rebounds, four assists, and four blocks to his monster night.

Jason Lloyd of The Athletic previously discussed the 2013 draft from the Cavs' perspective, noting Oladipo was a favorite of Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, but the front office voted 9-1 to draft Anthony Bennett No. 1 overall.

JR Smith was the only other Cleveland player reaching double-digit scoring - finishing with 15 points, as Kevin Love grabbed 17 rebounds, but was limited to nine points and the likes of Jeff Green, George Hill and Rodney Hood combined for 17 points.

IN "could've done better than it did" in the Paul George trade, Gilbert said last summer, a unusual shot that made Oladipo collateral damage after he and Domantas Sabonis were flipped for George.

The D.C. -area native, who went to DeMatha High, has certainly become a far better Victor Oladipo than some expected, at least so quickly after being traded to Indiana. All I'm focused on is myself and becoming the best Victor Oladipo possible."In a new, expanded role, back in the city where he became a college basketball star, Oladipo has blossomed into an All-Star and unquestioned leader.On Sunday, he looked the part.With George last season, the Pacers got swept out of the first round by the Cavs and squandered a 26-point lead in Game 3".

It has thus been a long-simmering issue for Oladipo, given that the inflammatory comments to which he was referring came nearly nine months ago. It came up recently because we're playing the Cavs in the series. Can't control his opinion.

Al Horford had 24 points and 12 rebounds and Boston overcame Khris Middleton's long 3 that beat the fourth-quarter buzzer to top Milwaukee in overtime in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference series. Having home court advantage now, the Pacers could put the defending Eastern Conference champions on the ropes with another win in Game 2. "Been playing hard on both ends all year". "It just hasn't been magnified".

"Now everybody sees, so it's like, it's kind of shocking to everybody, I guess you could say". "We came into this game with a mentality that we wanted to attack on both ends of the floor and play the way we've been playing all year, and we did a great job of that".
