With Kevin Love taking advantage of Indiana's small-ball lineup, plowing through his defender in the paint and earning repeated trips to the free-throw line, the Cavs scored 33 points on 11-of-18 from the field.

Games 3 and 4 will be in IN in this best-of-seven series.

James added 10 rebounds and seven assists while winning his 19th straight game in the first round.

"We're right there of what we know can become", James said. Kevin Love is the third double-digit scorer and Channing Frye is grabbing two rebounds.

As much as anything, Lue wanted the Cavs to attack for four quarters and not fade in the final 12 minutes as they did in Game 1 and as they did twice late in the regular season.

The Pacers were led by 32 points from Paul George.

Army says 1 dead, 2 injured in golf course helicopter crash
Army investigators were driving around the course in golf carts Monday evening, placing evidence markers near pieces of debris. Witnesses said pieces off the helicopter were falling off, but there is no report of fire at this time.

In the first game of this series, Cleveland eked out a 109-108 victory as the Pacers missed a wide-open buzzer beater to fall short.

"We know what's at stake", C.J. Miles said. "I've got to slow down and keep my composure".

"It's nothing they're doing, it's all me", Turner, who finished 3-of-10 from the floor with six points and five rebounds, told reporters. "We haven't won, but we can take some positives from the games we played". "We've got to take care of the basketball". Through the first two contests, he's logged 19 minutes and has just four points.

After missing 13 free throws in Game 1, the Cavaliers sunk 20 of their 23 looks from the charity stripe in Game 2.

So far, there is absolutely no reason to believe the team that spent the final two months of the regular season assuring everyone it would flip a switch and begin playing defense once the playoffs began has that capability, particularly near the level necessary to win another title. Shumpert was only exhumed by Lue when J.R. Smith, one of Cleveland's better defensive players simply by virtue of being average, left Game 2 with a hamstring injury.

Power forward Thaddeus Young can't play 48 minutes. "And he had that mindset, came in and executed, and it's hard to come off the bench right after halftime. We needed that spark". From there, it looked like Cleveland was bound to finish the game off, but the Pacers would eventually make a late rally. And this is before you have the conversation about how Paul George is calling out teammates or the team spirit every other game. A player who has historically been criticized for offensive passivity could find use, during a must-win game, in cultivating an air of aggression. What's even more telling of their rotation problem is that the Big 3 combined for 89 of those 96 starter points. "We know we've got an opportunity to clamp down and make baskets and get ourselves back in the game". James (357) also jumped Magic Johnson (358) for third place in career playoff steals and hopped Robert Parish for eighth in rebounds. Typically, Love will get the majority of his points early on and Irving and James will carry most of the weight later in games. Sure, he played out of his mind (25 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists, 4 steals, 4 blocks) but that doesn't mean Coach Lue shouldn't let him sit. Cleveland also made 13 three-pointers, 10 coming from Love, Irving and veteran point guard Deron Williams, who had 9 points off the bench. That third quarter we were able to turn our defense up, trapping him, get the ball out of his hands, scrambling, rotating.
