NBA scores: Cavaliers take 2-0 series lead over Pacers

Galena Nuncio | 21 Abril, 2017, 19:29

The Cavaliers won 117-111.

He scored 28 in the second half and finished with 13 rebounds and 12 assists, moving past Kobe Bryant and into third on the NBA's playoff scoring list. He was no fan of the officiating in Game 2 of their series with the Spurs. Defensively, we just didn't play that right. By the end of the third quarter in Game 2, the Paces trailed 96-78.

This is only the second time in Pacers' franchise history that in has trailed a playoff series 3-0 and George said it is in part because of poor communication.

During the team's flight to Indianapolis for Thursday night's Game 3 matchup against the Indiana Pacers, Jefferson filmed James as he rested in his seat.

But then came the second half, one fully dominated by the best basketball player on the planet, LeBron James. However, Cleveland outscored IN 35-17 IN the period and was within 91-84 with 12 minutes to go. Seraphin was called for an offensive foul. They built a 50-36 lead with just under six minutes left in the second quarter and went on to lead 74-49 at the half. Defensive breakdowns. Bad shots. With 6:59 remaining, a driving dunk by LeBron James tied it.

The only score that matters is 2-0.

Russell Westbrook makes history in Denver
Robertson recorded 41 triple-doubles in 1961-62, when he averaged 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 11.4 assists per game. Forty-four years ago in the 1972-73 season, Tiny Archibald scored 34.0 points per game while averaging 11.4 assists.

After giving up a late lead and squeaking out the opener by a point, James and Co. showed more intensity on defense, more swagger in general and won their 10th straight first-round game over the past three seasons. The Pacers came away with a 42-40 record in the regular season. At some point in the playoffs, the team will find its groove and make its way through the East to meet the Warriors in the Finals.

"Myself and Kyle, we kind have been brainstorming about it, how to get it to be more efficient", said James of working with Korver after Game One. "We'll figure it out".

But a Paul George three-pointer saw the Pacers close to within four points with 18.1 seconds remaining to set up a nervous finale as Cleveland's recent inability to close out wins reared its head once more.

"We're right there", said James, who also had 10 rebounds and seven assists. Smith wasn't happy the Cavs' medical staff kept him out of the game and vowed he'd be ready for Game 3 on Thursday night in Indianapolis. Cleveland is 12-0 when starting 2-0 in the postseason.

"We missed layups, they got the momentum and we got hesitant", IN coach Nate McMillan said of the Pacers' collapse. "It's our offense. I think we get exhausted at times".

In the third quarter alone, LeBron scored 13 of the Cavaliers' 35 points, including three 3-pointers. "And that was big".

Kim Jong-Un oversees North Korea display of military strength
Unlike at some previous parades attended by Kim, there did not appear to be a senior Chinese official in attendance. However, the display did show that North Korea is still going right ahead with their missile development program.

The Cavs closed the gap to 89-84 with 31.4 seconds left in the third quarter on a 3-pointer by James.

While the Pacers could not make Cleveland pay, they have a silver lining going into Game 3: Cleveland had a losing record on the road this season (20-21).

Coach, Tyronn Lue, however, said that he does not want LeBron to change his free throw motion.

Iman Shumpert, who didn't play at all in Game 1, replaced Smith and scored five points.

"Shump was unbelievable", Lue said. "We needed that spark".

Reigning world champion Selby races into second round
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".
