Oladipo, Pacers Hand LeBron, Cavaliers Game 1 Playoff Defeat
16 April, 2018, 11:56
It also was the first playoff-opening loss for James, who came in 12-0 in Game 1s and didn't realize he had been ideal starting the postseason.
"Listen, experience is the best teacher", James said, "and they got it today". He also picked up a technical for a hard foul on LeBron James. "I mean, I'm down 0-1 in the first round".
James 7-17 10-14 24, Green 0-7 0-0 0, Love 3-8 0-1 9, Hill 3-7 0-0 7, Hood 4-8 0-2 9, Nance Jr. There will be more of these games for the Cavs this postseason than we've seen since LeBron made his return.
The Cavs stormed back and got within seven, but Victor Oladipo hit a big 3-pointer and Bojan Bogdanovic helped put Cleveland away with a 3 to make it 88-71.
Oladipo was absolutely filthy, going off for 32 in his first Pacer playoff game.
IN continued their success against the Cavaliers as they beat them for the fourth time in five meetings this season, counting the regular season. Expected to be named the Most Improved Player in the National Basketball Association, he showed his athleticism and ability to dominate on both ends of the floor throughout Sunday's game. It was just the second nationally televised game they had played in all year. It was one game.
The Pacers clearly came to play, especially Victor Oladipo who was the best player on the court despite LeBron recording a triple-double.
"They came in and dictated the tempo, were more aggressive", James said. At the top of the list: the Cavs' have multiple players without any prior playoff experience, and a lot of them looked either scared or hurt.
The Boston Celtics had five players with at least 19 points to their name as they beat the Milwaukee Bucks 113-107. Paul George had a huge night, hitting eight 3-pointers on the way to 36 points. With all the nerves out of their system, the Cavs will take control of the series.
Well, it's now going to take a first-round comeback.
This is all new to James, who had won 21 consecutive first-round games and lost a post-season opener for the first time in his 13th playoffs. The 33-year-old is trying to get to his eighth straight Finals, and already the path is tougher than imagined. Although overreacting to a series-opening loss would be silly for Cleveland, failing to react is hardly a viable option. Kevin Love chipped in nine points, 17 rebounds, and two assists but it wasn't enough to help them get the W. The Cavs trailed all throughout the game, with the Pacers leading by 23 points at one point.
"We've been playing like this all year", he said. "They still don't believe". Even without Kyrie Irving (knee injury) and Gordon Hayward (fractured tibia), the Celtics proved that they belong in the NBA Playoffs, relying heavily on its starters. We know we're a good team and we can stay tight. "This is a different season, a good opportunity for him to show where he's at again."... If you saw how the Cavs played after the first quarter, they actually played very well.
CLEVELAND - Last summer, Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert declared, unsolicited, that IN "could've done better than it did" IN the trade that sent Paul George to the Oklahoma City Thunder IN exchange for a package that included Victor Oladipo.
"I think the biggest thing was we didn't waver as a team", added Thaddeus Young.
"I think the intensity", James said when asked where the Cavs tripped up.
