LeBron James leads Cavaliers past Pacers; Jazz top Thunder

The remark came in response to a question about Cavs guard Rodney Hood's contribution.

What were some of your takeaways from Game 2?

LeBron looked for the block but Oladipo's feathery shot was simply untouchable.

James put in an incredible performance in Game 2 against the Pacers, scoring 46 points, to help keep Cleveland in with a good chance of progressing to the next round. Of course, as Kobe Bryant reminds us, however, "flipping the switch" doesn't mean that LeBron magically becomes even less human than he already is, it means that he just has more time to focus in on one specific team. By the time he scored his first point - a free throw with 1:52 left in the quarter - the Cavs were losing 25-9. The game marked the 1,362 one of James' career (combining both regular season and playoffs) along with the most points he has ever scored in the first five minutes. I don't come into games saying 'I'm going to do this. My effort on offense, it'll come. After a Darren Collison layup immediately following the deflection, Cleveland called a time out and Love was taken out. "We're very, very confident".

When praising Smith, Lue added another message aimed at others on the roster: "He's not scared to hit people. It's a contact sport, and guys have to understand and realize that".

Pacers: Shot 6 of 22 on 3-pointers. He had a plus-minus of plus-15 in 31 minutes. The rest of the bench had two.

Utah got off to a fast start in Game 1 but was unable to sustain the early lead.

Forward Kevin Love, who left late in Cleveland's Wednesday game with the Indiana Pacers due to what ESPN is reporting as a partially torn ligament in his left thumb, said he will be ready to play Friday in the third game of the Eastern Conference series.

Telling quote from LeBron James on Wednesday looking back at the season and looking smack in the face of the 0-1 deficit the Cavs are in against in: "I think we spent so much time trying to figure out who we were in the regular season and getting the right lineups and guys in and out and things of that nature, we could never build for the playoffs". "Loose balls, diving on the floor, taking charges, getting deflections, get out and get an early basket in transition".

IN is outscoring Cleveland 33-18 in the series on fast breaks, and Oladipo is responsible for 19 of those points, more than the Cavs have total.
