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.

Yes, Cleveland is 0-2 ATS in the first two games of this series.

Mike Conley scored 24 points and handed out eight assists as the Memphis Grizzlies snapped a 10-game postseason skid against San Antonio by routing the Spurs 105-94 on Thursday night.

Love, in his third season with the Cavs, played in only 60 games during the regular season after undergoing knee surgery in February that sidelined him for five weeks and 13 games. He was only credited with drawing one charge in Game 2, but his willingness to put his body on the line for the squad did not go unnoticed. James has powered the Cavaliers through the first two wins, totaling 57 points, 20 assists and 16 rebounds.

The Cavaliers point guard led all scorers with 37 points to help hosts Cleveland to a 117-111 win in their Eastern Conference first-round tie. However, after losing another semi-tight (at least in the waning moments) contest in Game 2, in enters Game 3 down 2-0. 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.

James now trails only Michael Jordan (5,987 points) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (5,762) in all-time playoff scoring.

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.

Should Smith, who had just nine points on 3-for-7 shooting over the first two games, be unable to go, it won't be the first time the former New York Knicks teammates have flipped roles in Cleveland due to injury.

Still, George's sharp, direct complaints after the first two games caught some off guard.

The Cavs were down 74-49 at half-time, after earlier trailing by 26 points.

Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson were afterthoughts as coach Tyronn Lue stuck with James and the teammates that brought hope.

George didn't score until 2:42 remained in the first quarter, missing his first four attempts. The Cavs outscored the Pacers by 30 with James on the court.

The Pacers in the first half were making not only jump shots but crowd-pumping, rim-rocking, wham-bam jams that were YouTube-ready from takeoff to violent touch down.

Re-signing Lance Stephenson was a wild-card move by the Pacers after the trade deadline.
