LeBron James: Cavs star reveals how Cleveland can bounce back against Pacers

LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers

His run with the Cavaliers, however, could end after this postseason. It wasn't close. The Pacers blew out the Cavs, 98-80, in Cleveland.

The Pacers were one of the biggest surprises in the National Basketball Association this year.

The Cavaliers almost traded away Love for Paul George last offseason.

In addition to Oladipo, the Pacers have gotten solid seasons from several other players.

Barbara Bush in failing health, to 'focus on comfort,' family spokesman says
Bush, 92, will "instead focus on comfort care" for unspecified health complications, according to a statement. He is 93 years old and also has been in failing health in recent years.

Shooting guard Victor Oladipo has emerged as a legitimate star for the Pacers this year and the main piece that will be leading the team in the future. Myles Turner put up 16 points with eight rebounds, Bojan Bogdanovic had 15 points plus six boards along with three steals and Lance Stephenson contributed 12 points.

It's hard to imagine it being that easy this year as the Pacers are a more well-balanced squad. The Indiana Pacers are averaging 105.6 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 104.2 points on 46.5 percent shooting.

Coach Nate McMillian won't get much love for coach of the year, but he has quietly done maybe the best coaching job of his career.

A first-round exit for LeBron would ultimately be a major surprise, but this nonetheless stacks up as what should be a competitive series. The Cavaliers have way more superstar power on their team than the Indiana Pacers.

Marty's Sunday Morning Forecast - Warmer, Less Wind
The cool down continues into Friday with lows in the mid-40s and Friday afternoon highs in the upper-60s. A warm Saturday locally can help support at least borderline severe storms with strong wind gusts.

Only four players remain from the 2016 Cleveland team that won it all. As a result, the Cavaliers gave away home court advantage in the series, at least for the moment. But, talent doesn't always lead to success. It will require more help offensively from the rest of the starting lineup aside from the four-time league MVP that combined for only 25 points on Sunday. IN has played good ball the last month or two and have a belief it can win this series. That allowed Cleveland to forge a 25-7 run to make it 70-63 with 1:06 left in the period and when the quarter ended, in had led by a 73-65 score. Larry Nance Jr. coming off the bench, has been huge over the last few weeks of the season and he could play a big role in how far the Cavs can advance this post-season. Therefore, if the Cavaliers are able to control the tempo, they will control the series. Now they're ready for the most important part of their year.

Playing at a fast pace is nothing new to Cleveland. Meanwhile, the Indiana Pacers ranked 24th.

They counted out the Pacers in July, October and now in April.

Myles Turner might get the start in the middle for in, but they don't hesitate to give major minutes to their promising sophomore big man, Domantas Sabonis, who finished with 30 points off the bench in Indy's penultimate game of the season and has nearly doubled his averages from his rookie campaign in OKC. If the Cavaliers can do this successfully, it should be a quick and easy series.
