  • LeBron James takes flight in monster first quarter at Pacers

"Just playing against the best player in the league, trying to win against them".

"Business decisions" tend to be made, and it's likely safe to assume that this was the case during the first quarter of Friday's game between the Cavaliers and Indiana Pacers. "I don't feel like I've been to (seven) straight finals in a row". They had dropped six of their last eight games, including a 28-point defeat on Monday in Minnesota and a 34-point drubbing on Thursday in Toronto.

Larry Nance Jr. had 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Lakers, who blew an early 19-point lead before running away in the fourth quarter.

And then they didn't score again.

At the halfway point of his 15th season, which by some measures is as great as any other he's played, LeBron James said he doesn't know when he will call it quits. First, a switch by Collison forced James out of bounds on a baseline drive 1.7 seconds to go.

James finished with 27 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds. Oladipo made the free throw to give IN an 84-82 lead with 7:53 to go, a costly point. Stephenson also baited James into a technical (James shoved him during a dead ball) in the fourth quarter, which led to an Oladipo foul shot.

The Cavs played without four guards: Isaiah Thomas, Dwyane Wade, Derrick Rose and Iman Shumpert. The Cavs are 0-3 against IN and 6-1 against everyone else IN the division. James followed with bad misses on a 3-point try and a jumper inside of 70 seconds.

IN outscored Cleveland 32-16 in the third quarter to erase a 14-point halftime deficit and take a 76-74 lead after three quarters. The Cavs, meanwhile, shot 6-of-21, having lost the considerable rhythm they'd built in the first half.

They face National Basketball Association (NBA) champions the Golden State Warriors tomorrow after blowing a 22-point lead against the Indiana Pacers. This kicked off a 22-0 run for the Cavaliers. The Pacers' 12 points were the fewest by an opponent in any quarter this season.

The result: IN, which trailed 26-6 about eight minutes into the game and still trailed 72-60 with 5:23 left IN the third, rallied.

Cleveland was running all over the place. If he were to average 20 points per game and play 70 games a season, he would need about five more seasons to eclipse Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's record of 38,387 points.
