LeBron James, Cavaliers come from 26 down, beat Pacers

LeBron James, Cavaliers come from 26 down, beat Pacers

Cavaliers: Irving, Love, J.R. Smith, Channing Frye all scored 13 points. But the largest halftime deficit overcome previously was 21 points, by Baltimore against Philadelphia in 1948.

The Cavs are now chasing their seventh straight postseason win, their 11th consecutive first-round win since James' return. Paul George had 36 points, 15 rebounds and 9 assists, just missing out on joining James to become just the second pair of opponents in league history to drop triple-doubles against one another in a postseason game (Walt Frazier and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar did it against each other in 1970). James finished the game with 41 points, 13 rebounds, and 12 assists. They were playing great, I don't think we were making them uncomfortable, I don't think we were being physical with them. "The only thing that matters is (winning) - that's what I'm here for". He even held James in check in the first half.

It would be the fourth time in six years that James' team ended the Pacers' season.

ANALYSIS: After the Cavaliers' epic comeback, I got some instant analysis from WKYC Channel 3 Sports Director Jim Donovan on Facebook Live. "I trust the guys on that floor, but I just thought - you know, I watched it kind of unravel - that's when I should have stepped in and demanded the ball a little bit more", he said.

The 25-point halftime deficit tied for the largest of James' postseason career, matching the time the San Antonio Spurs dominated him and the Cavs in the 2007 NBA Finals. IN extended the lead to 20 on back-to-back 3-pointers from Jeff Teague and Lance Stephenson, and then it was all Cavs.

Despite George making only 1 of 5 field goal attempts, IN led 37-27 after the first 12 minutes, getting nine points from Kevin Seraphin and seven from Thaddeus Young.

James had 13 first-half points, and Irving added 10, but Cleveland was outrebounded 26-17 and shot only 36.7 percent in the first two quarters.

Cleveland's defense was more impressive than James' offense, holding IN to 5-for-26 shooting IN the period (19.2 percent). Kyle Korver scored more points in two quarters (six) than he did in the first two games (four). The Pacers got 19 first-quarter points from non-starters on 7 of 8 field-goal shooting. He finished with 12. Lance Stephenson had 13 points.

'Juventus could have played Barcelona for a whole day and not conceded'
Not that it mattered and it's Juventus who take their place in Friday's semi-final draw alongside Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Monaco.

It was a record-breaking collapse for the Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in game three of their best-of-seven series with the Cavaliers. IN scored 37 points in the first quarter, falling just short of a season high (39), then matched that 37 in the second quarter for its highest first-half total of the season. George had 23 points, nine rebounds and five assists in the first half.

Indiana's inability to close out games this year dumped the team to the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference and a dreaded series with the defending National Basketball Association champions.

And it didn't have to happen. "Instead, we came out relaxed and just allowed them to step into wide-open 3-pointers". You can not take a day off.' And I used him for my motivation throughout my career because I always knew that he was working on something.
