Pacers ready for Cavaliers in game 3

Kevin Love after a thumb injury
LeBron James Bounces Back With 46 Points in Game 2

21 April, 2018

The Indiana Pacers can't wait for another crack at the Cleveland Cavaliers, especially in front of their home crowd.

This is the only season since James returned to Cleveland that he's never said the Cavs can win it all this year.

And finally, about this whole "who else is going to play like it's actually the playoffs" bit, James said "I'm confident in all my guys gonna go out and play the game the right way and we'll see what happens".

"I just like the adversity of the road. And Victor got into foul trouble", Collison said. Mitchell scored a game-high 28 points with six rebounds, while Favors added 20 points and 16 rebounds. He scored 46 points on 70.8 percent shooting with 12 rebounds and 5 assists and the Pacers still came close to tying the game.

"He's great, yes sir", coach Tyronn Lue said Wednesday. Lue switched his starting lineup in Game 2, inserting shooters J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver in place of Rodney Hood and Jeff Green.

Pacers holding a gold-out for Game 3. Love won't be able to get Oladipo to foul out, but forcing the other team to sit their big men will open up doors for Love to go to work on the offensive side of the ball.

The series is 1-1 after two games in Cleveland however the teams now face a pair of matches in Indianapolis. Oladipo and company have been playing with a chip on their shoulder all season, and will be amped up for a home playoff game.

"They're a well-coached team", LeBon said before morning shootaroud.

Chief Isaac said Smith did not pass along the information about the call but they're not sure what happened. "Help, help, help. A police radio call shows that two officers were assigned to investigate the call seven minutes after the first call was made.

Now we've got - what? "But we ran the same first play until they stopped it".

The Cavaliers jumped out to an early 33-18 lead following the first quarter, but IN slowly started chipping away at the lead.

According to ESPN's Brian Windhorst, James' current supporting cast needs to contribute more during games or "face a dubious distinction of being the weakest" in the three-time National Basketball Association champion's 13-year postseason career. And it just felt like I was in a really good rhythm, so I just tried to see how long I could stay in that zone and try to make a mark on the game early on. This team will need him to produce like he did in game two for the rest of the playoffs, but they also will need to lean heavy on one other player: Kevin Love.

Love said X-rays were negative and he expects to play Game 3. "He made some tough shots".

James then made three free throws over the final 22 seconds as the Cavs avoided falling behind 2-0 on the series. Over the series Love has shot only four free throws, making three.

Pacers reserve Joe Young is listed as questionable with a sinus infection. So now that IN is returning home, this seems like a good spot to stick with the home team and fade LeBron. Korver joined the trio on the 2017 team, which reached the finals. It's new because he was always the third guy in Cleveland, previously behind Kyrie Irving and Isaiah Thomas. But, yeah, the lineup we had (Wednesday night) worked. He's the best player in the world, but he can't beat the Pacers with little contributions elsewhere.

And, of course, there are Cleveland's turnovers - 17 in Game 1 and 15 in Game 2. We're better than that. In my daydreams, I'm back in 2005, and reliably piledriven into the dirt by these goliath-sixth graders before getting back up and getting into ready position (obnoxious try-hard stuff, I know).
