Pacers To Face Cavs In Round 1 Of Playoffs


Turns out, there was something new.

LeBron James has mastered the first-round knockout.

I cannot say that history won't repeat itself, but the Pacers won't go out quietly, that I can assure you. Let's see what kind of best offshore sportsbook odds James & Co. are facing in Game 1 of this series.

Down 1-0 in the first round. "I was down 3-1 in the Finals". I think at the end of the day, we would love to have a long run, but that's going to be up to not only him but all of us. It wasn't close. The Pacers blew out the Cavs, 98-80, in Cleveland.

They next come up against the Pacers, again in Cleveland, on Wednesday night.

Lily Sheridan added two goals and two assists and Natalie Sonntag had two goals and an assist for the Patriots. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for SC, which scored 15 or more goals in each of those triumphs.

They calmly walked off, business as usual. He's been slowed by a sore left Achilles, but Lue said Hood's "ready to go". The total will improve from Game 1 but it still falls a little short of the number as there's a big jump to be made here. Oladipo has thrived in Indiana's offense and has set career highs in points, assists and rebounds this past season. The Pacers built a 21-point lead in the first quarter and completely outplayed the three-time defending Eastern Conference champions.

Only two other Cleveland players managed to crack double digits in scoring, with J.R. Smith notching 15 and Larry Nance Jr. delivering 10 on the afternoon.

"We couldn't score and obviously you need to". The Indiana Pacers are shooting 36.9 percent from beyond the arc and 77.9 percent from the free throw line.

That is the complicating factor in the Cavs' playoff path.

His 21-game winning streak in the first round included sweeps over: Bucks ('13), Bobcats ('14), Celtics ('15), Pistons ('16), Pacers ('17).

The Cleveland Cavaliers have had a tumultuous season in terms of their roster, but it did not negate the awesomeness of LeBron James, who put up the best season of any 33-year-old in National Basketball Association history.

"We were definitely mad", Stephenson said. They just have to believe that their bad habits haven't sunken in too deep. "We're just going to keep proving everyone wrong and play together". Those Pacers, though, didn't have Oladipo or the balance of this Indy squad, which may lack experience but not confidence.

"On this team, we all know what Victor can do when he steps on the court", Thaddeus Young said. This is a team that has no right to be as good as it is. "When you don't, you saw what he's capable of".

A first-round exit for LeBron would ultimately be a major surprise, but this nonetheless stacks up as what should be a competitive series. He's going to get a lot of plays ran for him. "I feel like I just have to go out there and play my game".

Hill played on those Pacers teams that were eliminated in three straight postseasons by James and the Miami Heat.
