IN had its chance, a great chance on the road, to steal the first game of the series and make Cleveland, the reigning NBA Champions, question what they were doing.
LeBron James scored 25, pulled down 10 rebounds and made seven assists.
But you can also imagine George - whose tussles with LeBron James used to arrive later in the playoffs, carrying genuine weight - attempting to take reality to task; trying to dunk all over the futility of his situation.
In two playoff games so far, only Channing Frye has eclipsed double-digit points from the bench.
After the game, a 117-111 Cavs win, Smith said he did not require an MRI and he hopes to play in Game 3. George scored 10 of his 32 points in the final stanza. Jeff Teague added 23 points on 8-of-12 field goal shooting while veteran big man Thaddeus Young had 16 points and 6 steals. That took away chances for the Pacers to possibly erase their bad second half play as a whole, resulting in a well-deserved Game 2 loss and an 0-2 series deficit.
Cleveland came into the fourth quarter with an 18-point lead and saw the Pacers cut it all the way to four with 19.5 seconds remaining, reminiscent of the way IN was able to turn a 12-point deficit late IN the third quarter IN Game 1 to a two-point lead with 3:31 remaining IN the fourth Saturday. In Game 1, he publicly stated that C.J. Miles should've given the ball up to him for the last shot. "That was just a moment in the game that we took advantage of a certain situation". IN isn't full of scrubs, but they're not comparable to Boston or Washington, let alone Golden State or San Antonio.
"We've got to hold back", Lue told reporters after getting handled at home by the Washington Wizards in late March.
"No, because we're right there". Shump sparked that, made a couple shots for us also.
At this point, their #DefendTheLand slogan is nothing but false advertising, because there is just no defense played in Cleveland.
The other hitch for Cleveland was that starting guard J.R. Smith didn't play in the second half because of a left hamstring injury.
In the last 54 seconds of play, both reserve point guard Deron Williams and Love buried three-point shots from the right wing, two of the five the Cavaliers connected on over the first quarter of play.
"We know what's at stake", CJ Miles said. "Our guy was right on top of that, everybody came out okay, which was the main thing". We all know Lance is an emotional guy, and a lot of it is just his heart, and his competitiveness, and that emotion comes out on him.
Game 3 will be one where Turner responds emphatically to George's words. What's even more telling of their rotation problem is that the Big 3 combined for 89 of those 96 starter points. We have a chance to do something we all have been wanting to do all season, and that's to put together a four-quarter game.
Cavaliers: James (357) jumped Magic Johnson (358) for third place in career playoff steals and hopped Robert Parish for eighth in rebounds.
That's now 19 straight opening-round wins for the National Basketball Association team led by LeBron James.
San Antonio led for all but 13 seconds in winning its 10th consecutive postseason game over Memphis. Only Jerry West (14) and Michael Jordan (15) had more. That third quarter we were able to turn our defense up, trapping him, get the ball out of his hands, scrambling, rotating.
