Escape act: LeBron, Cavs edge Pacers 109-108 in Game 1 - Apr 16, 2017

LeBron James
Their regular-season issues followed the Cavaliers into the playoffs. They didn't win their postseason opener as much as survive it. The champions remain puzzling. LeBron James (6'8''-SF-84) scored 32 points and Cleveland, looking to flip a switch after a shaky-and-streaky regular season, began the postseason by escaping with a 109-108 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday. C.J. Miles (6'6''-G-87) could have won it for Indiana, but a player whom Cleveland's players and coaches call a ''Cavs killer,'' missed a 14-foot jumper just before the horn. Following the game, Miles sat silently at his locker in full uniform for 30 minutes before Larry Bird, the team's president of basketball operations, came in and patted him on the shoulder. James refused to acknowledge how different things would be if Miles' shot had dropped. ''He missed,'' James said. ''We won.'' Playing in his 200th playoff game, James added 13 assists and six rebounds while winning his 18th consecutive first-round game. However, it was anything but easy as the Cavs, who had a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter, had to withstand a strong comeback by the Pacers. After a foul, Indiana inbounded with 10 seconds left and tried to run a play for star Paul George (6'9''-G/F-90, college: Fresno St.). But James came over to help J.R. Smith and double-teamed George, who was forced to pass to Miles. His jumper was on line, but short and the Cavs avoided a disastrous loss. George was adamant that he should have gotten the ball back. ''I talked to C.J. about it,'' George said. ''In situations like that, I gotta get the last shot. C.J. took it upon himself. I'm confident with all of my guys taking shots. That's not the issue. In that situation, I need the ball.'' Miles didn't make any excuses. ''Obviously, we wanted to get the ball to Paul to be able to get the shot to win the game,'' he said. ''I got the ball at four (seconds), so I had to take it myself. I got a good shot. I just didn't make it.'' James said the Cavs' plan on the final play was not to let George beat them. ''We wanted to get the ball out of his hands, make somebody else try to beat us and live with the results,'' he said. Kyrie Irving (6'3''-G-92, college: Duke) added 23 points and Kevin Love (6'10''-PF-88, college: UCLA) had 17 for Cleveland, which has won 12 straight playoff games at home. George scored 29 points and Lance Stephenson (6'5''-G/F-90, college: Cincinnati) had 16 for the seventh-seeded Pacers, who will try to even the series on Monday night. Cleveland had several bad offensive possessions down the stretch and the Cavs went only 14 of 27 from the free-throw line. After dropping their last four and going 10-14 since March 1, the Cavs entered the postseason appearing very vulnerable. It's too soon to say whether they have their act together, but for three quarters they looked more like a team capable of reaching its third straight Finals. Irving dismissed the idea that Cavs feel vulnerable. ''Hell, no,'' he snapped. ''Not going into the game with the group that we have.'' Indiana played a solid all-around game, matching the Cavs at both ends and even out-rebounding them. But, as usual, the Pacers couldn't contain James, who improved to 45-7 in the opening round and got the Cavs their first win - warts and all. ''I'm happy we go the victory,'' he said. ''I'm happy how emotional we was. I'm happy with the energy and the effort. They made some big shots and some big plays, so I'm excited about that.''

John Wall and Wizards turn back Hawks, 115-99, move on to Eastern Conference semifinals - 13 hours ago
Washington Wizards point guard John Wall (6'4''-PG-90, college: Kentucky) ended his night early, walking off the court with the clock stopped late in the final quarter. He deserved the proper ovation for a road villain - hard handshakes from teammates and scattered boos from a salty crowd - after closing out the Atlanta Hawks. As the Wizards defeated Atlanta, 115-99, in Game 6 of a first-round playoff series and advance to meet the top-seeded Celtics in the Eastern Conference semifinals,...   [read more]

Celtics Destroy Bulls 105-83, Overcome 2-0 Deficit to Win Series - 14 hours ago
The Boston Celtics completed their first-round playoff comeback against the Chicago Bulls on Friday with a commanding 105-83 victory in Game 6 at the United Center to win the series, 4-2. Boston dropped the first two games of the series but won four straight after Rajon Rondo (6'1''-PG-86, college: Kentucky) suffered a fractured right thumb. All five Celtics starters scored in double figures, and Avery Bradley (6'2''-PG-90, college: Texas) led the balanced effort with 23 points. Jimmy But...   [read more]

Erik Spoelstra Has Interest In Running Heat Front Office Someday - 14 hours ago
Erik Spoelstra has interest in running the Miami Heat when Pat Riley retires. Spoelstra was asked about it during an interview with Adrian Wojnarowski. "Short answer would be, I'm a Pat Riley disciple, and, like I've said, he's always pushed me and nurtured me for the next steps," Spoelstra said during the interview recorded in Southern California. "So, yes, that I'd love to have that opportunity years down the line from the Arison family, because I believe in them so much as human beings.    [read more]
