Play-offs: James inspires Cavs to level series

Play-offs: James inspires Cavs to level series

"I'd rather be on time and on target than lucky".

Then you can grab a bite to eat, and it's on to Toronto for the next round!

"Ty Lue says that Kevin Love is good to play in Game 3". In Game 1, the Cavs trailed 33-14 at the end of the first quarter, with James scoring two points in the opening frame.

Dazzling from the start, James scored the game's first 16 points and had 29 at halftime, ruling the floor as he has done in so many previous post-seasons.

The best player in the game still resides in the Land donning the Wine and Gold, and because of that one advantage no one else has, there is always an opportunity to win.

Jazz stars Donovan Mitchell and Derrick Favors led Utah to a 102-95 Game 2 victory over Thunder to level the series at 1-1.

The Pacers' bench outscored the Cavaliers' bench 25-16 in Game 2.

Wednesday night was different. It's the opportunity for LeBron and the rest of the Cavs to watch a lot of film, study their opponents' superstars, and make another insane run at the NBA Finals. Victor Oladipo led the Pacers with 22 points and 6 assists with some help from Myles Turner who added an 18 point, 5 rebound stat line. The Game Night Special can be purchased at the Pacers Team Store on game day, as well as online from 10:00 AM-Midnight.

"What I told those guys is, just your first playoff experience, just play hard and compete", Lue said before Game 1. "It's going to be another battle, but we're going to be ready for it".

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.

The series moves to Minnesota for Game 3 on Saturday.

"Our goal is to win four games".

Tyronn Lue's message about the need to be more aggressive evidently got through to LeBron James. Oklahoma City closed the quarter on a 21-9 run to take a 79-74 lead. Only after he scored those points were the Pacers able to get their own field goal.

In the playoffs, LeBron needs to "LeBron" even more than in the regular season. If not, the Cavs are in big trouble. This was also just the fourth time LeBron has had a Game Score in the 40s since returning to the Cavaliers. The horses were out of the barn, the Pacers were too far out in front and the Cavs were out of gas.

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

LeBron got involved, all right. The over-under, or total points Vegas believes will be scored, is 209.

So after losing a should-win game, the Cavs won a must-win game.
