Cavaliers erase 26-point deficit, stun Pacers


121 - Teams trailing 3-0 in a best-of-seven series have never come back to win in 121 attempts.

Lebron James-led teams have a pretty good postseason record with a 2-0 series lead. "But we're right there on turning the switch on what we really can become".

Kyrie Irving ripped the Pacers with 37 points, including a career-playoff-best 25 in the second half. Kevin Love contributed 27 points and 11 rebounds and was 12 of 12 from the foul line.

It was as rough of a first half as LeBron James has faced in his career, followed by as dramatic a comeback as the 70-year history of the National Basketball Association has ever seen.

Cleveland were outscored 13-7 over the final five minutes of the second quarter on Monday, opened up a 19-point lead during the third but IN regrouped and got back to within four points with 19 seconds to play. He shot 10 of 20 from the field and was complemented by Jeff Teague's 23 points and 4 assists. Cleveland regained the lead twice during a 15-5 fourth-quarter run and closed it out with a 12-5 spurt.

Lance Stephenson was hitting threes, Paul George was getting to his spots easily, and Indiana's offense was literally toying with the Cavs' defense.

Looks like they spotted IN two points for this one.

I'm not even going to say it's our defence.

ANALYSIS: After the Cavaliers' epic comeback, I got some instant analysis from WKYC Channel 3 Sports Director Jim Donovan on Facebook Live. "We're playing for pride now. We're gonna move on and come out ready to play".

We're doing a awful job of getting back and guarding people. He did have eight of Cleveland's 19 turnovers, miscues that allowed the Pacers to hang around. "We're going into that game not to give them a "W" on Sunday".

The Cavs had J.R. Smith back in the lineup after he injured his left hamstring and missed the second half of Game 2. ESPN notes that at one point in the third quarter, Stephenson slammed the ball on the floor after the play was over.

It is like Scrooge disparaging Christmas to find fault with the way the Cavaliers played at some point before meeting the Western Conference champion in the Finals. No doubt, Tyronn Lue's charges need to improve in the said category if they are to make life hard for fellow title contenders in days to come. "And he had that mindset, came in and executed, and it's hard to come off the bench right after halftime".

LeBron James finished with 41 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists, and the Cleveland Cavaliers set an National Basketball Association postseason record by erasing a 25-point halftime deficit to beat the Indiana Pacers 119-111 on Thursday night and take a 3-0 lead. But late-game mistakes and miscues doomed the Pacers to spoiling their best chance at a road win. All-Star forward Paul George has once again taken his game to another level in the postseason, averaging 30.5 points over the first two games. Even when we're down big.
