Cavaliers aren't perfect, but they're still up 2-0 on Pacers

NBA confirms Cavs star Le Bron James owns best-selling jersey in Philippines

Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James keeps the ball from Indiana Pacers' Paul George during the first half in Game 3 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series, Thursday, April 20, 2017, in Indianapolis.

The Cavs have never lost a play-off series in which they led 2-0, going 12-0 when they have won the first two games.

Despite failing to impress in Game 1 against Indiana Pacers, Cleveland eventually recorded a hard-fought 109-108 victory over Paul George and Co. Just his energy defensively, made a couple shots, his tenacity it was really good for us.

The Cavs spread the Love among their big three, leaving Larry Bird feeling no love. Love has upped his scoring game in the postseason, averaging 22.0 points, while also pulling down 7.5 rebounds in 35 minutes. Jeff Teague added 23 on 8-for-12 shooting.

I'm not even going to say it's our defence. If you're like me then you're always on the go.

Coach, Tyronn Lue, however, said that he does not want LeBron to change his free throw motion.

James was unfazed by the Pacers' fourth quarter fightback after the Cavs held on to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Like in Game 1 the Pacers fell behind early and only made the game close thanks to a strong fourth quarter performance. A three-pointer on the buzzer from Kyrie Irving handed Cleveland a 96-78 lead heading into the fourth quarter, an 18-point cushion.

James was one of the biggest offenders, with eight turnovers, something Lue blamed on fatigue. "We take away some of these easy baskets we're giving up, and these games might be a little different".

But Fizdale unleashed a spectacular post-game tirade against the officiating crew, one that is nearly certain to bring disciplinary action from the league.

According to Basketball News, Playoff basketball is all about making winning plays and laying everything all on the line, and that was what Kevin Love has displayed during Game 2. To add to his wonderful performance, he went six of seven from the field, including an impressive three of four from beyond the three-point line, and a flawless 12 of 12 at the free-throw line. That would be three point shots and foul shots.

"One NBA person said to me, 'The Cavs don't have to beat the Golden State Warriors in April".

"I don't want to ask", Smith told the Cleveland Plain Dealer about talking to team doctors.

"If you're on a team like this, you can't be selfish or get mad", Smith added. "Obviously, they (the Pacers) know we have tremendous depth at the shooting spots in myself, Kyle (Korver), Channing (Frye) and Shump (Iman Shumpert)".

In years past, when the Cavaliers have taken control of a series, the opposition has tried to muck up the games with (sometimes excessive) physicality.
