The Pacers have also been good at defending the 3-point shot, ranking 5th in 3 point % allowed, at a measly 34.9% which is going to be vital against the Cavaliers. "When you get to the playoffs, it's a whole different animal".
The Cleveland Cavaliers are gearing up for the playoffs, where the team will be the fourth seed.
One suggested it was down to pity and said: "Sorry King James.there going to give the MVP again to someone out of pity than the true GOAT".
The litany of trials and tribulations, scandals and scoundrels, injuries and illnesses to befall this team made this the, well, craziest of seasons anyone on the Cavs can remember. Russell Westbrook became the first player in National Basketball Association history to average a triple double in multiple seasons.
That said, only time will tell us how well that works out.
If nothing else is clear, James will do something during this playoff run that will stop the very fabric of time, forcing us to understand the intensity and the divergence from the shadows into the light.
It's impossible to reimagine the last seven years with any other player in LeBron' shoes.
Derrick Rose and Dwyane Wade used to play for this team. He basically got the same parts back with a few minor alterations (all hail Masai) and flipped the team on its head. Went to the tropics.
"It's the best I've felt all season and I've got the numbers to back it up and I've got the wins to back it up as well", he said.
There was a team meeting that destroyed the team.
They were 10-1 in games decided by three points or less.
Yet no single player suffers more from a series loss despite doing so much than LeBron. He finally stepped away March 19 and missed 10 games.

That is, if security is continuing higher in an uptrend, the amount of the protection should also increase and vice versa. It's not hard to see why an official investigation might be annoyed at premature disclosures like this one.

Shikhar Dhawan led SRH to an easy victory
Shikhar Dhawan's form is a boon on the batting front for SRH though their batting depth was not tested during the first match. While Hales is unlikely to start their opening encounter, they will need their top-order to fire if they are set big totals.
December 8: The Cavaliers hadn't lost a game in almost a month when they rolled into Bakers Life Fieldhouse, trying to win their 14th straight.
Does that even cover it all?
I cannot say that history won't repeat itself, but the Pacers won't go out quietly, that I can assure you. It's not just about me, it's for the next crew. "Keep everybody in tune". Defensively, the Cavs will be tested by dynamic two-guards in their first two series, so this problem will last much longer than just one series. "We can nearly like all leave after that sentence". Eighteen triple doubles and 52 double doubles. He leads the league in points scored.
He averaged 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists per game.
James, who likened the playoffs as his taste of March Madness seeing as he skipped college to go straight to the pros, said he plans to have a bit of a survive and advance message when he addresses the team prior to Game 1.
"In my opinion, he is the best player to have ever played our sport".
If Korver isn't ready, Rodney Hood, one of four players acquired at the trade deadline, will likely start.
Doesn't quite sound like a winning formula for the playoffs. Who's the team to win could be the other question.
And Lue kept his word. "He just has to be great for us, and I think he will". "When they're right I don't think anyone can touch them, but they have not been right recently". The Raptors average 111.7 points per game this season while allowing 103.9 per game. He was the league's only player to average at least nine rebounds and make 125 3-pointers. This could be the first postseason in the past several where Cleveland will have some challenges ahead if they want to reach the NBA Finals, based on Toronto claiming the top spot, and Philadelphia's surge behind their young rising stars. Never mind that for now. First and foremost, the Pacers will have no answer for small forward LeBron James.
They met in last year's 1st round too of course and while the Cleveland Cavaliers won in a sweep it was a pretty tightly contested series.
In a way, all of this first-round dominance makes sense. Never had a chance to get to 82. "That's all you can ask for".
