LeBron James Has Perfect Response To Cavs' Game 1 Loss To Pacers

LeBron James Has Perfect Response To Cavs' Game 1 Loss To Pacers

But you wouldn't have known it from the Pacers' demeanor as they fielded questions from the media on Monday.

LeBron was involved in the most famous comeback in National Basketball Association history as he played a huge role in helping the Cavs overcome a 3-1 deficit to win the 2016 championship against the Golden State Warriors.

The Cavs' playoff theme is: "Whatever It Takes".

It was all Pacers early on as IN started the game on a blazing 20-6 run, IN due part to the wine and gold not being able to find any rhythm offensively, and struggled to hit shots.

"We were pleased with all of the looks we were getting", shooting guard Rodney Hood said.

"I've always stayed even-keeled with the postseason", James said after the game, as per ESPN. "We can be better".

The NBA playoffs rarely get upsets in the first round, but the Pacers downing the three-time defending East champions would certainly raise some eyebrows. The Pacers were the hungrier team.

"Our approach is the same as it's been all season long", McMillan said. He will try to rally the Cavaliers in Game 2 set for Wednesday night at 7 pm E.T. James has been to the past seven NBA Finals. In the first quarter, Nance Jr. had six points and no one else had more than two.

"We've been there so many times this season", explained Myles Turner. He had averaged more than 27 points per game in the playoffs for the Pacers the past two years. You obviously have take the good with the bad when it comes to Lance but at least the Pacers know he isn't going to just disappear in this series. The Cavs got within seven in the fourth, but Oladipo, once a role player who has blossomed into an All-Star in his first season with in, hit a big 3-pointer and Bojan Bogdanovic helped put Cleveland away with a 3 to make it 88-71.

Still, it's hard to find any major faults in the Blue & Gold's defensive effort in Game 1, particularly to start the game.

Besides LeBron, no Cavs starter finished in double figures.

Despite his triple-double, James shot just seven-for-17 and produced three turnovers in an overall team display that was met with boos from the home crowd. And not just them. That's why we came to this series. These are some of the fixes that could benefit the Cavaliers moving forward in the series. They were more physical than us at the point of attack, they were more precise with what they wanted to do and we couldn't score the ball. James did not record a point until making a free throw with 1:52 remaining in the first quarter, as he did his best to get his teammates going on the offensive end.

Or perhaps the adjustments they make will simply be in their level of aggression, as Stephenson theorized.

"He don't back down from nobody and I definitely don't as well", James told reporters, when asked about Stephenson. We're fully aware of his team, and we realize it's not going to be easy, but that doesn't mean we're just going to come in here and just fold.

"We got the first one out the way".
