LeBron notches 20th playoff triple-double but Cavs fall in Game 1

It's hard to imagine it being that easy this year as the Pacers are a more well-balanced squad.

Trailing by those 17 points at intermission, the Cavaliers soon found themselves in even worse shape as they faced a 23-point deficit at 61-38 with 10:28 left in the third quarter. "But only one person knows what he's thinking and that's "Bron. So, I'm the last guy to ask about how you're going to feel the next couple days". Mentally and physically, I'm where I should be right now.

James returned to Cleveland during the summer of 2014 following his four-year stint with the Miami Heat.

Blitzing Oladipo - Cleveland have tried just about everything to mask their defensive shortcomings, and while sometimes they have looked like a cohesive unit, there are other times where they have looked like a discombobulated mess.

With the Cavs sitting 3rd in the conference for much of the season, it didn't look as if this matchup was likely. Each June, a meeting with the Golden State Warriors was all but guaranteed.

Conservative former London mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith, tweeted: "We need a clear response to the Syrian chemical outrage". President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that he hoped common sense would prevail and that the situation would stabilise.

James, who played 44 of the 48 total minutes, had 24 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds to lead the way for the Cavs, but went 7 of 17 from the floor and missed all four of his 3-point attempts.

Of the myriad reasons for Indiana's surprise season, there's no bigger factor than Victor Oladipo, who revived his young career back in the state where he played his college hoops. During one moment in particular, the Pacers guard crouched so laughingly low on defense - nearly mockingly - that James displayed a smirk in a clip that was made for the basketball Twittersphere. They're still the favorites, of course. He made six 3-pointers, swiped the ball from James on two occasions and more than doubled his previous playoff scored high of 15. The Cavaliers ended with a 50-32 record. With Irving gone, Kevin Love has become Cleveland's second-most important player.

Basketball fans will #Watch Pacers vs. Cavs #live streaming online and televised game coverage on Sunday afternoon as the two Eastern Conference foes battle. The Indiana Pacers have a team full of roughriders and won't enter this series intimated one bit. But I don't think that stuff will ever stop.

We'll find out if The Kiddie Corps really is ready for prime time if they meet up with the Celtics. It could be my last run, too, so you just never know.

So for the fourth time in recent memory the Pacers will be faced with the task of facing a LeBron-led team. "But, just go out there and lose yourself in it and everything will fall where it needs to".
