Pacers upset Cavs in game 1

NBA play-offs: Cavaliers shocked by Pacers

NBA play-offs: Cavaliers shocked by Pacers

It's the continuation of a first-round Eastern Conference playoff matchup between a pair of Central Division rivals.

"The oldest National Basketball Association playoff cliche snaked its way into the Cavaliers" locker room Sunday.Hasn't been around these parts much, because, well, losing Game 1 of a first-round series is not something they do.

Furthermore, according to BasketballReference.com, LeBron has never lost a Game 1 in the first round. Following that contest, the series shifts to Indianapolis for games on Friday and Sunday night.

IN continued their success against the Cavaliers as they beat them for the fourth time in five meetings this season, counting the regular season.

Head to head, the Pacers are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings in Cleveland and 14-5-1 ATS in the last 20 meetings overall.

IN took control from the outset, opening a 21-point lead in the first quarter and pushing it to 23 in the third. Game 2 tips off Wednesday night in Cleveland.

The Cavs coughed up 20 points off 17 turnovers and was 8-of-34 from 3-point range.

During their run, the Pacers got a three-pointer from guard Victor Oladipo, a free throw and 19-foot jumper from forward/center Myles Turner and driving layup from Darren Collison ahead of the consecutive three-point plays. But that includes many more lopsided series. "This is a different season, a good opportunity for him to show where he's at again.".

Say this about Lance Stephenson - he makes any series more entertaining. "They (the Pacers) going to push the ball at any and every opportunity they got and we have to be ready for that attack".

They calmly walked off, business as usual.

That experience means the three-time champion isn't anxious about this latest hole that Cleveland is in. During the season, they had seven players average at least double digits and shot 37.6% from three.

The game went to overtime following a wild finish in regulation that included back-to-back three-pointers in the closing seconds. You've heard them all, but in this game, they were all true.

James posted 24 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds in the loss. In fairness, many at the time would have agreed with the owner that the Pacers didn't get an impressive haul for George, particularly given that Oladipo, widely thought to be a solid but unspectacular combo guard, was in the first year of a four-year, $84 million contract extension. The Pacers are a good team that threatened to challenge James in the first round. IN controlled the tempo from the start and hammered Cleveland into submission.

The resounding message from Pacers practice at Quicken Loans Arena on Monday afternoon was one of guarded optimism.

It's a bit concerning if you're a Cavaliers fan that the other four-fifths of the starting lineup managed a total of one more point (25) than James scored himself (24) in the opener.

"We're going to find out", James said. Hood finished with nine points while Hill had seven.

Losing early in the playoffs, especially with new teammates like Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. playing poorly, could convince LeBron that a change scenery is necessary for the 2018-2019 season.

This only works for Cleveland if they can score. That was a big change for them: remember, last season in Game 3 of their series with Cleveland, they blew a 26 point lead and lost by five. The starters will be motivated and will have great games the next time they play the Pacers. IN is a talented team with quality scoring depth and this one should be no different.
