Cavaliers Come Back From 25-Point Halftime Deficit, Largest In NBA History

The Pacers will try to win their first game of the series Thursday night at 7:00 P.M.

"I'm not going to let them treat us that way", he said.

If LeBron's words about being "right there" and "close to the team that we all know we can become", turn out to be true, opponents might be in for a rude awakening should Cleveland start to click on all cylinders.

Cleveland Cavaliers did remarkably well to shock star-studded Golden State Warriors in the National Basketball Association finals last season and they are eager to repeat the success. That's what I was trying to do tonight. "We got some great play from our guys off the bench".

LeBron James in the second quarter on April 20 passed Kobe Bryant for third place in the NBA's all-time playoff scoring list. Channing Frye's clutch 3-pointer with 54.8 seconds to play gave the Cavaliers a 114-107 lead.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - After losing both games in Cleveland to the Cavaliers, the Pacers are ready to take advantage of home court this week.

After another close loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and yet another near double-digit comeback, the Pacers All-Star is fed up with just about everyone in the in locker room.

Conley got most of his help from forward Zach Randolph (21 points, eight rebounds) and center Marc Gasol (21 points, six rebounds and three assists).

But the NBA Champions just about held their nerve on Monday, eventually winning 117-111 thanks to a 37-point haul from Kyrie Irving as well as 27 points from Kevin Love and 25 from LeBron James.

Paul George scored 36 points, including 21 during a dominating second quarter, but IN could not stop James and Cleveland IN the final 24 minutes. Irving, Love and LeBron are averaging a combined 80.5 points, 18.0 rebounds, and 16.0 assists per game in the series.

No team until the Cavs did it ever recovered from a 25-point halftime deficit to win in the playoffs until the Cavs did it - just as no team ever came back from a 3-1 deficit in the Finals until the Cavs did it past year. We played a great first half, but then they really got aggressive in the second half. Distractions are the last thing the team needs right now especially if they are coming from their best player.

Jeff Teague added 15 for IN, and Lance Stephenson scored 13 for the Pacers.

In this game, the Spurs had a big edge at the line in the first half (10 of 15) compared to the Grizzlies, who took only four free throws the entire first half.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are just too much for the Indiana Pacers in this first round series. IN scored 37 points in the first quarter, falling just short of a season high (39), then matched that 37 in the second quarter for its highest first-half total of the season.

Cleveland trailed 74-49 at half-time, but outscored the Pacers 35-17 in the third quarter and 35-23 in the fourth.

Deron Williams (five points), Channing Frye (13 points) and Kyle Korver (12 points) led the Cavs' reserves, and the trio played almost the entire fourth quarter with Irving and Love on the bench. He also tied Jerry West for the second-most 30-point, 10-assist games in postseason history with 14; only Michael Jordan has more (15).

George didn't score until 2:42 remained in the first quarter, missing his first four attempts.

"We've been in this situation before where it's a test of your character and who shows up", Pacers coach Nate McMillan said. "We didn't establish a killer instinct, and we didn't keep the ball in front of us and deny their 3-point shots".

But LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers showed why they are the reigning National Basketball Association champions in the second half. IN made only 13 of 51 second-half shots, including 6 of 24 from beyond the arc.
