After Game 1 Loss to Pacers, Should Cavaliers be anxious?

  • Mike Wells previews the Pacers Cavaliers series

It was the first time the Cavaliers lost in the first-round since LeBron returned to the team and James' first first-round loss since 2012 when he was still with the Miami Heat.

But you wouldn't have known it from the Pacers' demeanor as they fielded questions from the media on Monday.

Didn't know that, did you?

The Celtics took their first step toward shattering the belief they can't win without their biggest stars.

He is only the second player in National Basketball Association playoff history to reach that mark.

McMillan, it should be noted, never presented Gilbert's comments to the Pacers to try to hype them up for the series, but he acknowledged the impact they might have had as they found their way back to his team on their own.

Beyond that modest declaration, Oladipo, 25, didn't say much. "There's some things that we can improve on that I was looking at in the film". There was a lot of uncertainty and no clarity from Day One and that hurt us from being a better team than we could've been.

"(Sabonis) was in the trade to the Pacers with me, but we'd also been together since pretty much the moment he got drafted by the Magic in 2016", Oladipo writes. "We can be better".

Of course, on the few occasions when Love even ventured into the post, IN center Myles Turner was nearby to help, as the Pacers basically dared Jeff Green, who went scoreless on 0-for-7 shooting, to beat them from the perimeter.

For Pacers center Myles Turner, better defensive communication is key. Lue wants him to come out of the gate aggressive rather than waiting and getting a feel for the game. Holding him under 20 points would be ideal, but is highly unlikely considering the level he is playing at this season. Sunday's Game 1 proved that. The Pacers raced out to an 18-4 lead on Sunday thanks in large part to their suffocating defense, which forced six turnovers in the first seven minutes and held Cleveland to just two field goals over the first 7:48.

"We believe that we can win", Oladipo said. "We were into them, making them make tough passes, making them take tough shots".

The Timberwolves had a one-point lead with about seven minutes left when Houston used a 9-0 run, with the last seven points from Harden, to make it 94-86 with about four minutes to go. That's why we came to this series.

Lakers fans should be following the Cavaliers closely in the playoffs. However, he got off to a slow start and did not take his first shot until 1:52 remianed in the first quarter.

"No, it's not enough", Lue said of Love's eight shots. Sooner than later, we are going to find out. "They're going to pressure us. Like I told you guys, you always ask me, 'Is there anything you can tell them [about the playoffs]?' Listen, experience is the best teacher and they got it today", James said. The Pacers punished the 29th ranked Cavaliers defense with 38 points in the paint to lead the Cavs the entire game.

"We had a lot of guys with egos that we really couldn't push aside" he said.
