James' epic start helps Cavs even series with Pacers

James' epic start helps Cavs even series with Pacers

This year the motto is Whatever It Takes.

However, the Cavaliers held their nerves to withstand the late challenge from the Pacers to nail the victory at 100-97.

Cleveland - The Cleveland Cavaliers were "lucky" to get the 100-97 win to level their National Basketball Association playoff series against the Indiana Pacers, LeBron James said on Wednesday.

Wednesday night, the Indiana Pacers were hoping to shock the National Basketball Association once again to take a 2-0 series lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

James said the news of her passing puts "everything in perspective" and being part of the National Basketball Association family means always sticking together, especially in the toughest times. Gerald Green added 21 points and 12 rebounds off the bench.

Sunday was the playoff debut for deadline acquisitions Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. - both should be better in Game 2 having gained some experience.

I'm not on social media right now, but I was made aware through some friends through texts that a question was asked to me postgame, and a lot of people feel I was blindsided.

Per ESPN's Dave McMenamin, Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said power forward/center Kevin Love will be "ready to go for Game 3".

The Cavs typically take their cue from LeBron, and when he was strangely passive in the first 12 minutes, the other Cavs behaved like a bunch of nervous sidekicks, checking their watches while waiting on the street corner for their leader, who must be having auto trouble or something. Carmelo Anthony scored 17 points, but made just six of 18 shots.

James came out assertive and looking to score Wednesday. James outscored the Pacers 20-18 in the first 12 minutes.

They needed to change their fortunes quickly after being embarrassed and dominated by the Pacers in Game 1, and it was an all too familiar sign for the Cavaliers, who have struggled to find any form of consistency all season long. The Cavs' lead reached 19-3 on a Love 3-pointer at 6:34 and 22-4 on a Korver 3 at 5:52.

IN was over 95-92 and straight back in the 18-point deficit on Wednesday although Oladipo, that scored 32 at the opener, finally came loose but overlooked his greatest shooter in 2 games. The Pacers were +11 with Oladipo on the floor Wednesday, and -13 without him.

James then followed with four free throws as the "M-V-P" chants returned, and Collison added his final bucket.
