LeBron James Bounces Back With 46 Points in Game 2

Nick Wright doesn't think Le Bron James will take control on the scoring end

When everything was said and done, IN came up short by three points, with a final score of 100-97.

"He did a great job of being aggressive and setting the tone early", Lue said of James. The change worked out, to say the least. After not attempting his first shot in the opener until 1:52 remained in the first quarter, he dropped a short jumper 16 seconds into Game 2.

Oladipo scored Myles Turner 18 to the Pacers, who surprised the Cavaliers in Game inch using an get - and 22 points - he was in ancient foul issue. He finished with 19 after sitting out most of the first half with foul trouble. The Pacers were +11 with Oladipo on the floor Wednesday, and -13 without him.

"I think it's just familiarity with that lineup to start tonight", James said.

James suffered his first loss in the first round since 2012 in the Cavaliers' 98-80 setback to the Pacers on Sunday.

29, 8, and 4 - This seems like a stat line that a good National Basketball Association player averages, right? 18 and 5 isn't something you want to magnetize to the refrigerator, but Turner's showed up this series, and the Pacers are going to be much, much better because of it. Not only did he fill up the stat sheet, but he was quite efficient while doing so. James tallied 20 in the frame, including 16 before in got on the board. You can, but it would be tough.

LeBron James, as expected, led the Cavs with 46 points, 12 rebounds, and five assists in 40 minutes of action. "We gave up a wide-open three to Oladipo, and he missed it". I'm going to do that.' It just kind of happens in the flow of the game. That bodes well for IN going forward. His first 13 points were unanswered.

Houston was up by 22 points with about nine minutes left when Paul made two quick baskets to make it 91-65. Clarkson has to break out of this funk he's in.

On Wednesday night, I leaned on fried biscuits and apple butter.

IN closed the gap in the third quarter, as it outscored Cleveland 21-15.

The remark came in response to a question about Cavs guard Rodney Hood's contribution. Cleveland made only 23.5% of their long-range shots in Game 1. The unstoppable "LeBron and four shooters" lineups that laid waste to the Eastern Conference last spring are gone and not coming back.

By halftime, James had 29 points, more than the 24 points he had in the entirety of Game 1.

There's also the fact a lot of people seem to believe they're the better team in the series now.

4-of-8 - Kyle Korver has had quite a tough month, dealing with the sudden death of his younger, 27-year-old brother while also nursing an injury.

An X-ray of the thumb was negative. Oklahoma City closed the quarter on a 21-9 run to take a 79-74 lead.

So, while their video review no doubt turned up some calls worthy of protest, they didn't come close to absolving themselves of blame for the loss, or even politicking for more favorable judgements from the referees in Game 3 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Friday.
