Cavs, Spurs ease into 2-0 leads

Kyrie Irving scored 37 points, Kevin Love added 27 and the host Cleveland Cavaliers avoided another fourth-quarter collapse in Game 2, beating the Indiana Pacers 117-111 on Monday night to take a 2-0 lead in the series.

During Saturday's first 2017 playoff game in the National Basketball Association, a close matchup between the Indiana Pacers and the Cleveland Cavaliers ended with a missed buzzer beater.

LeBron still managed to deliver his usual brilliance, but the Cavs went from owning an 18-point lead late in the third quarter to just a five-point game with less than three minutes to play in regulation.

"We're right there", James said after putting up 25 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists on Monday.

The best basketball player in the entire world isn't talking about how he managed to almost drop a triple-double against the Pacers, or breaking down how Paul George scored 32 points and almost led in to a win in Cleveland.

Paul George scored 32 and Jeff Teague 23 for IN, which showed more fight, but now has a steep hill to climb to get back IN the series. He scored 16 points and grabbed seven rebounds in Saturday's one-point loss to the Cavaliers.

It mirrored a similar shaky finish in Game 1, when in wiped out a 10-point fourth quarter lead before Cleveland ground out a win. The Spurs nearly blew a 26-point lead, but they were able to fend off the run by the Grizzlies that involved several shady calls by the officials.

"He understands he has to be better with the basketball in order for us to win", Lue said.

"We have all the security parameters in place for the Cavs game that we normally do and things above that", Cleveland police chief Calvin Williams said Monday. "We lost our poise and wasn't calm during that third quarter". LeBron is 11-0 all-time in first round playoff series, and is halfway to making it 12-0.

Kyrie Irving ripped the Pacers apart with 37 points, including a career play-off-best 25 in the second half.

The third ended with Kyrie Irving tossing in a 3-pointer over Stephenson and jawing at him to punctuate the play he made before heading back to the Cavs' bench for the quarter break.

The James tallied 32 points, 13 assists, six rebounds and came up big in the last few minutes of the game.

The victory came at a cost for Cleveland however, with guard J.R. Smith limping off with a hamstring injury.

"Kyrie had a big quarter and we went to a matchup trying to cool him off". Overall we shot ball in the paint 35 times and we had 15 free throws - for the game. IN is 0-9 when dropping the first two games in a series.

The Cavs say they made the play they wanted to make at the end, forcing Pacers star Paul George to give the ball up to Miles, who was initially covered before shaking free from Richard Jefferson just before releasing the ball.
