CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday, 100-97, in the second game of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.
James didn’t take his first shot in Game 1 until less than two minutes were left in the first quarter.
Say what you want about Ty Lue’s lineup change for Game 2, but James controlled the only adjustment that needed to be made.
Lebron James has scored 16 points less than 6 minutes into the game.
It’s the most any player has scored in the first 6 minutes of a playoff game in the last 20 seasons.
In Game 1, Sabonis picked up five fouls in 11 minutes and gave the Cavaliers two and-ones during their third-quarter rally.
