Irving scores 37, Cavs hold on to beat Pacers 117-111

Shumpert sparks Cavs after Smith hurts hamstring in Game 2

Shumpert sparks Cavs after Smith hurts hamstring in Game 2

In the Pacers' Game 1 loss to the Cavs, CJ Miles got the potential game-winning jumper instead of George - that didn't sit well with the superstar.

Stephenson, who just signed a three-year deal late in the regular season, had a plus/minus of minus-7 in five minutes in the third quarter with the Cavs taking over the game. 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.

Undoubtedly, the first provocation wasn't delivered by the Clippers, who are down 1-0 to the Jazz in the best-of-seven series that resumes Tuesday night at Staples Center. This makes little-to-no sense, but hey, I'm only reporting what happened.

While Cleveland may try and crush their spirits right away, IN knows going down three games to none basically means curtains for their season.

"Shump was unbelievable", Lue said.

"We just need him to challenge Tristan [Thompson], keep him off the boards", George said of the 21-year-old Turner. Though looking at the box score indicates he wasn't as vital of a factor as the previous game, Thompson won the matchup again and essentially took Turner out of the game as a scoring threat. "And, hopefully, J.R.is all right as well". The Cavs don't want a six or seven-game series in the first round when they clearly have the x's and o's advantage.

They also got an assist from the officials, according to Memphis coach David Fizdale. Smith moved into the starting lineup, stayed there all season and ultimately helped the Cavs to their first National Basketball Association title. Guard Deron Williams briefly spoke to Smith, who has struggled with consistency after missing three months following surgery for a broken right thumb.

Marcus Smart Flipped Off a Fan During Celtics' Game 2 Loss
Chicago again used its big men to push the Celtics out of the paint and was quicker to the ball in a lot of 50-50 situations. So, the Bulls truly should be thinking best player available, and as I wrote previously, maybe take a shot at Indiana's O.G.

The Cleveland Cavaliers struggled to the finish line of the 2016-2017 regular season, especially through a hard month of March, where they played 12 of their 17 games away from Quicken Loans Arena.

"I thought he had a good look. We responded well when they made their run, and that's the mindset we have to have every night". As a team, the Spurs shot 45 percent from the field and nine of 23 from the three-point line but where they really hurt the Grizzlies was at the free-throw line where they connected on 31 of 32 attempts thanks largely to Leonard who drained all of his 19 attempts. "He did what he was supposed to do".

The Cavs's defense during the regular season ranked 22nd out of 30 teams.

On Lance Stephenson: "He's gotta learn to control himself". "That's everybody's job, so I just did my job".

The game 1-game 2 adjustments were semi-successful, putting Thad on LeBron for numerous possessions when both were in the game.

"His number wasn't called in Game 1". "Even in, you know, the first two quarters, we build a lead, we didn't close out the second quarter as well as we would like to and, but, we have a chance", said James. He passed Mark Price for second place in the third quarter.

"He was keeping himself ready behind the scenes". "We needed it. We needed that energy from him".
