National Basketball Association wrap: LeBron James helps Cavs even series

CLEVELAND (AP) - The situation was dire, requiring playoff dominance.

CLEVELAND - After a 100-97 win over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday in which the Cleveland Cavaliers needed 46 points from LeBron James to even their Eastern Conference first-round series, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue challenged the rest of the team to step up.

Lue also revealed that he decided not to bring Love back in the game is because the Cavs "had a good flow going".

Hell, you have to go all the way back to the 2010 NBA Finals to find one that LeBron wasn't in.

"Obviously I'm a huge Pop fan", James said in an interview with TNT's Allie LaForce.

"I got a clean look, I shot and I just missed", Oladipo said. "If I had that look again, I would take it every time".

Hendon asked for a delay in court proceedings until at least Monday, saying she needed to research the law. President Trump lashed out against the raid, calling it an attack on the country.

James said the news of her passing puts "everything in perspective" and being part of the National Basketball Association family means always sticking together, especially in the toughest times.

Cavaliers jumped out to an early 33-18 lead after the first quarter, but IN slowly started chipping away at the lead. "It feels great to even this series up". Whilst the Cavs avoided falling behind both games in the set, James grabbed the rebound and made three free throws.

As the National Basketball Association playoffs get underway, we saw two big upsets in Game 1.

"They basically hit us in the mouth", Pacers head coach Nate McMillan said.

"Just tried to push the tempo, tried to be aggressive. getting into the lane and getting a couple of easy ones early helped us", Paul said.

Lue is expected to go with the same starting lineup he used in Game 2 - George Hill and Smith at guard along with Kyle Korver, James and center Kevin Love. Green failed to dent within the opener mainly because Korver dealt with a sore right foot and Hood begun.

While the changes weren't that surprising, Oladipo leaving after 62 seconds was stunning.

The Cavaliers shook up their roster significantly prior to the trade deadline, and James acknowledged Wednesday that it impacted the team's playoff preparation, per McMenamin. But instead of messing around, Oladipo drove directly to the basket and James wasn't able to keep up.

Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns had another disappointing game, scoring his five points in the first quarter.

Just as the health of the Cavaliers seemed to no longer be a concern, Love suffered a partially torn ligament in his left thumb breaking up a pass with less than four minutes left in Game 2.
