IN force the pace on Cavaliers

James admitted the revamped Cavaliers were surprised by the Pacers' explosive offence, but they would chalk it up as a lesson learnt ahead of Game 2 in Cleveland on Wednesday. Victor Oladipo led IN with 32 points, six rebounds, four assists and four steals IN the win. The Cavs got within seven in the fourth, but Oladipo, once a role player who blossomed into an All-Star in his first season with in, hit a big 3-pointer and Bojan Bogdanovic helped put Cleveland away with a 3 to make it 88-71. LeBron James led the team with a triple-double of 24 points with 10 rebounds and 12 assists, JR Smith came alive in the third quarter to finish with 15 points while Larry Nance Jr chipped in with 10 points but no other player finished in double figures.

This is all new to James, who had won 21 consecutive first-round games.

Meanwhile, James Harden scored 44 points on 15-of-26 shooting with eight assists to help the Rockets escape game one with a 104-101 win over the Timberwolves. "I think the next game, we'll be more relaxed, and we'll come out, we'll play better". This is also the first time the Cavs have lost Game 1 in the first round since 1998, also against the Pacers. James dropped to 48-8 in first-round games.

"They are a great team", Stephenson told reporters. That's why we came to play this game is to win, not just to come here and just be OK. That said, he has to make sure his teammates know what to do as well. IN jumped to a 19 point lead after the opening quarter and kept Cleveland at arm's length as the Cavaliers didn't draw closer than seven the rest of the way.

It was all Pacers early on as IN started the game on a blazing 20-6 run, IN due part to the wine and gold not being able to find any rhythm offensively, and struggled to hit shots. I mean it is no surprise that they started slow because most of their team has little playoff experience.

"So we take it as everybody has to dig deep and not lose two of them on our home floor". "It's only Game 1".

"They took advantage of everything what we wanted to do", James said."They were more physical at the point of attack and were more precise with what they wanted to do". While Turner felt the Pacers "did a pretty good job" with their transition defense, he noted that some lapses in communication resulted in open looks for Cleveland's shooters. "We'll make some adjustments and be a lot better". However, the Cavaliers will have three days to rest and regroup before Game 2 and the only way is up for them after their poor showing on Sunday. Sooner than later, we are going to find out.

The Pacers know how hard it will be to win two games in a row in Cleveland. You get the idea. "We got a couple of steals early, which we didn't convert on, but for the most part, defensively, we were pretty good". They have LeBron, after all, and they were on national television 39 times.

Khris Middleton added 31 points, hitting five-of-seven three-pointers, with eight rebounds and six assists in a losing cause. He stood shoulder-to-shoulder with James, before rising up right in Jeff Green's face.
