In the second half, the Cavs' defense also turned it up as the Pacers scored just 40 second half points.

James added 10 rebounds and seven assists while winning his 19th straight game in the first round. "Everybody knows how close I am with my teammates, and to really make that the highlight of the series - I said that only to motivate us and to win the series". Kevin Love missed only one shot attempt as he shot 6-7 from the field including three three-pointers en route to 27 points and 11 rebounds. Jeff Teague scored 23 points, and Thaddeus Young contributed 16.

Had his moments, but was part of the problem in the third quarter. They reeled off a 15-2 run in the third quarter to cut the lead to five, then after the Pacers were able to push the lead back to double digits, Cleveland went on a 14-2 run to take the lead.

In the third quarter, Cleveland took a much different approach, leaning heavily on Kevin Love's post play when the Pacers went small with Lance Stephenson covering the Cavaliers' power forward.

He's been ranked number one in the world for the last two years, and is widely regarded as one of the favourites. A thankful White said: "I haven't won the World Championship , but I'm not finished yet".

"I just saw turnovers", Lue said. "It's our offense. I think we get exhausted at times. And we don't push the ball every single possession when we get a chance". Instead, fans were treated to watching Channing Frye rain threes while LeBron James picked apart the Pacers, but we'll get to LeBron soon. Cleveland was dead last in transition defense this year, and it was easy to see why in Game 2 whenever the Pacers pushed the tempo.

The other hitch for Cleveland was that starting guard J.R. Smith didn't play in the second half because of a left hamstring injury. "We're right there on the cusp of doing it".

It's where they won the game, outscoring the Pacers in the period, 33-20, and playing with more intensity on the defensive end as a result.

Where some may think that the Pacers are done in this series, they're not. "And he had that mindset, came in and executed, and it's hard to come off the bench right after halftime". "Shump (Iman Shumpert) came in and gave us some more aggressiveness on the ball with PG (Paul George) and our bigs, Tristan (Thompson) and Kev did a great job of rotating and putting two on the ball and myself and Ky on the back side we just tried to read and react".

Garcia hung his head in the 13th fairway when his 4-iron shot disappeared off a bank toward the tributary of Rae's Creek. His approach on the 15th hole went over the green, and after a fine pitch to 10 feet, he missed that one, too.

The Spurs responded to another late-game meltdown as they have all season: relying on a little 3-point shooting and a whole lot of Kawhi Leonard.

"He's got to learn to control himself", George told reporters after the game. "We had a bad 3rd quarter where I thought we lost our composure, and we fought our way back into the game once again". Even when we're down big. They were built for the playoffs anyhow, and the one-seed clearly meant nothing to them in the grand scheme (sorry Celtics).

James also passed Wes Unseld for seventh on the all-time playoff rebounding list with his fourth board on Thursday.

James softened up the defense on drives, Irving kept Pacers point guard Jeff Teague on skates and Love buried almost every shot he took.

"Michael Jordan can't say that". He scored zero in the third when the Cavs began their comeback.
