Ruben Holloway
April 16, 2018

James' first-round, Game 1 winning streak was snapped at 21. The teams split two previous playoff series with the Cavaliers holding a 5-4 edge in game victories. They did not panic when LeBron James and his crew revved up in each of the final three quarters.

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.

The only time Sunday's result was ever in any true danger came as the Cavs whittled a 23 point Pacers' lead down to seven early in the fourth quarter. "How much different a regular-season game is compared to a postseason game". His playmaking opened up the floor for the Pacers to shoot 45.3 percent from the field and 39.3 percent from deep.

Game 2 will also be in Cleveland, with that Wednesday night contest set to tip off just after 7 p.m. If Cleveland can't get their shooting in order, they could be in some trouble. The Cleveland Cavaliers star might have trouble just getting out of the opening round of the playoffs. I wouldn't blame them for their overconfidence, considering the fact that LeBron has made the finals seven years in a row.

Cleveland began the second quarter on a 7-0 run, led by Kevin Love, who hit his second three-pointer of the evening during the quick run. (10 points) were the only other players in double figures coming off the bench.

"They were more aggressive", James said.

4 points and 4 rebounds, as well as 3 fouls in the first-half do not make for a highlight reel. The Pacers, meanwhile, have been viewed as one of the league's biggest overachievers, improving both their win total and playoff seeding from a season ago, despite the departure of George. "You don't want to take aggressiveness away from your players but you've got to be smart out there and calm and make good decisions".

The Pacers took the fight to the Cavs. "They called it. I don't care." - and volunteered to go at James again as the series continues. Coach Tyronne Lue started Hood over Kyle Korver, who has lingering soreness in his right foot and was on a minutes' restriction. Overuse wasn't the issue as only James (44), Love (34) and Nance Jr.

James had won 21 first-round playoff games in a row until the rout, having never before lost the opener in a first-round National Basketball Association post-season series.

When the final horn sounded, the Pacers didn't celebrate or run around the floor like they had accomplished anything special.
