"I had every intention to keep those guys in as long as they were playing well, but Kevin and Kyrie didn't have a problem with it at all". He scored zero in the third when the Cavs began their comeback. No team in National Basketball Association postseason history had ever come back from such a huge halftime deficit to win a game.
Stephenson finished with 13 points, two rebounds, four assists and two steals. He now has 5,669 playoff points and counting.
The Pacers will try to win their first game of the series Thursday night at 7:00 P.M.
James added 10 rebounds and seven assists while winning his 19th straight first-round game. But Cleveland rallied, outscoring IN 35-17 IN the third quarter and eventually moving IN front with 6:28 remaining IN the fourth.
I'm not even going to say it's our defence. "Only thing that matters is a win, and that's what I'm here for".
With four seconds left, Miles said that he had no choice but to take the shot himself. He had 36 points, a playoff career-high 15 rebounds and nine assists.
Now the Pacers are one loss away from being eliminated by James' team for the fourth time in six years. "I trust the guys on that floor, but I just thought - you know, I watched it kind of unravel - that's when I should have stepped in and demanded the ball a little bit more", he said.
Valve adds Phone Number Requirement for Dota 2 Ranked Matchmaking
That might sound like an obvious feature, but it's one that's been lacking from both Dota 2 and League of Legends for years now. Should those populations reach a certain threshold, Valve insists these regions will be given access to ranked play again.
The Spurs only had 12 points in the paint, but got two 3-pointers from Parker and Danny Green, in building a 26-point lead in the first half.
BUCKS 104, RAPTORS 77 Khris Middleton scored 20 points and host Milwaukee overwhelmed cold-shooting Toronto to take a 2-1 lead in their first-round Eastern Conference playoff series. "Who's going to be disciplined enough to come out with the positive outcome".

While the first half was mostly forgettable, in the second half the Cavs flipped the script and showed the rest of the National Basketball Association just how unsafe the defending champs remain. Whether it was his strong offensive play in the first and third quarters, or the consistent willingness to sacrifice his body in an attempt to draw charges and gain extra possessions for the Cavaliers, Love was inspirational for the team's victory.
Another reason why there should be optimism for the Pacers is that role players usually play better at home. That would be former Duke point guard Kyrie Irving. Lance Stephenson had 13 points. In the opening quarter, they were outscored 37-27 and 37-22 in the second. Game 3 takes place in Memphis on Thursday.
