He finished with 24 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds but few could say the same for Cleveland on Sunday. And only a few of them can count on a lack of experience.

It was a must-win for the Cavs, who couldn’t afford to fall behind 3-1. But it may have been a must-win for the Pacers, too, who made their path to the second round more difficult with the loss.

Fourth-seeded Cleveland still has work to do, but the fifth-seeded Pacers must now play two of their final three games on the road if the series goes seven games. It won’t be easy. LeBron James has never lost a first-round series. Yet, the Pacers have proven themselves capable of winning the series, too.

LeBron James does what he does

James, who played the entire second half, had 23 of his game-high 32 points in the first half, and he finished the night with 13 rebounds and seven assists. It was his 100th game with at least 30 points, trailing Michael Jordan’s 109 for most in NBA history.

Victor Oladipo scored 32 points, and while the Cavs rallied in the second half, Cleveland lost by 18 points.

As teams in the East know so well, it’s difficult to beat a James-led team four times in a series. James has advanced to the NBA Finals in seven consecutive seasons. This might be his toughest first-round series since beating Washington in six games in 2008.

The others had just enough for the Cavs

The Cavs still need more production from players such as Jeff Green (eight points), Kyle Korver (18 points), Larry Nance Jr. (six points), Jordan Clarkson (12 points) and Rodney Hood (six points), but they delivered enough – namely Korver, who found his shot in the second half. Korver made two key three-pointers late in the fourth quarter – one giving Cleveland a 94-93 lead and the other giving the Cavs a 99-95 lead.

Without Korver, who was 4-for-14 on threes coming into the game, the Cavs might be looking at a 3-1 deficit.
