LeBron James engineered the National Basketball Association playoffs' biggest second-half comeback as the Cleveland Cavaliers overturned a 25-point deficit at half-time to beat the Indiana Pacers 119-114 in Game Three of their series on Thursday.
This comeback began with a second straight devastating third-quarter punch from the Cavs. The Pacers not only have an outstanding spread mark in the past 13 meetings overall, but they also have won 12 of the last 14 games played between the teams at Bankers Life Fieldhouse SU.
It was an extraordinary shot, the kind LeBron regularly makes appear effortless.

James has powered the Cavaliers through the first two wins, totaling 57 points, 20 assists and 16 rebounds.

Cleveland regained the lead twice during a 15-5 fourth-quarter run and closed it out with a 12-5 spurt.
Then James made new memories, sinking threes, including one 28-footer, driving to the basket for dunks that left Indiana's defense with all the cohesion of a pile-up on the turn at the Indy 500, passing to Frye, Korver and Smith for more dead-eye balls to the center of the net. They committed no turnovers in the third quarter.
The announcement comes as James and his Cavaliers are in the midst of the first round of the National Basketball Association playoffs in a bid to retain the team's world championship crown.
