with OKC he had to rely on RWB to do that FOR him

and Sabonis...he was starting at PF for the Thunder, with Adams at C..much different and bette situation on the Pacers now being the BACKUP C off the bench with a somewhat weak 2nd unit...

but hey yeah lets go back to blame RWB for everything...amidoinitright?
Don't even bother man..it's not worth it with him

he was too passive in the beginning of the game imo, got down by 14 early and he had taken 0 shots at that point in 4-5 minutes or so..

but to say he didnt hustle or play hard...he only had 4 minutes off the whole game

doesnt help they missed 8 FT as a team, and you have Jeff green shooting 0-8 for some reason

All I saw was him passing off in the 4th in usual Lebron fashion.

But that only worked when he had a transcendent scoring threat like Kyrie on the wing...or Love was actually draining buckets.

Just lol@KL having 8 shot attempts and JR having 11. Green contributed absolutely nothing.

What a mess.

Fully expect the Cavs to still win the overall series, but in order for that to happen LePass is going to have to dip back into 2016 Finals form and snap out of the pass first mentality.

Bron put up better numbers but Oladipo had a much better game..dat kid is special. I think Pacers win this series..4-1 or 4-2.

James not even top 3 nba players today..

Sports Illustrated didnt even have Pacers in playoffs...smh

Wow. Wasn't able to watch the game. Peeked at my phone in the first quarter and thought for sure the Cavs were just toying with them. Don't know how the Cavs can lose even one game to a team like the Pacers lol. Oladipo is a nice player, but how does he come into your home building and run you off the court when you have a "goat" haha

In before lebron fans come in with their usual garbage, "lebron got a triple double. He did his part. His teammates are horrible." Did I cover it all?

Cavs will still probably win the next 4, but great win for the Pacers. Oladipo looked good!

Yes they missed a lot as pointed out by the whole broadcast team. And hustle has nothing to do with minutes played. I realize he had a triple double so nothing appears wrong, but I thought he settled a bit on shot selection. His face in the final minute was ďWhat just happened?Ē Well what happened was the playoff intensity came to fruition by the opposition.

Doesnít matter. Itís one game.

I still expect Cavs to win but Pacers will not go down easily.

Nobody had the Pacers in the playoffs, not even this diehard fan...thought they'd play hard but be about where the experts thought 30-35 wins. You can not find me 1 national predictor or Vegas odds that had the Pacers in the playoffs before the season started.

And the creepy obsession continues.

WOW. Classic Lebron hater---You didn't even watch the game and are piling on the hate.

You just lost all your credibility. Seriously, at least watch a quarter before you spout off on how crappy Lebron is.




That being said: Even though he got a triple double, Lebron played poorly on defense, had great matchups on offense he didn't exploit, and was overall very passive.

There you have it: an honest opinion from a guy who likes Lebron.

Can't win an NBA game shooting sub-40% with 16 turnovers. Hopefully they knock off the rust otherwise it's going to be a long series.

It will be if they keep playing like this lol. If the Cavs get knocked out I think Philly has a pretty easy road to the finals which would be pretty awesome
