Huge rally carries Cavs past Pacers

One thing I do know is that we had a huge half-time deficit and were able to come back and win the game.

LeBron James recorded 41 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists, and the Cleveland Cavaliers rallied from a 26-point deficit to stun the Indiana Pacers 119-114 on Thursday night in Game 3 of their opening-round Eastern Conference playoff series. He had 36 points, a playoff career-high 15 rebounds and nine assists. Bryant had 5,640 points; James now has 5,669. "We just need Shump to stay focused and understand the task at hand and I think he did a good job of that tonight". "First thing Kevin and Kyrie said was, 'Man let them go.' After the game they was happy and said, 'It's not about us, it's about the team.' Not a big deal at all, especially when you come out with the win".

Therefore, the night belonged to LeBron, who inched closer to Magic Johnson's record mark of 30 postseason triple-doubles.

They forged into a 51-39 lead after a 16-2 run before the Pacers battled back to within five points as the half finished with the Cavs up 63-58.

Deron Williams (five points), Channing Frye (13 points) and Kyle Korver (12 points) led the Cavs' reserves, and the trio played almost the entire fourth quarter with Irving and Love on the bench.

Cleveland were outscored 13-7 over the final five minutes of the second quarter on Monday, opened up a 19-point lead during the third but IN regrouped and got back to within four points with 19 seconds to play.

With about 6 minutes left in the second quarter, the Raptors had called their fourth timeout while trailing by 31. IN scored 37 points in the first quarter, falling just short of a season high (39), then matched that 37 in the second quarter for its highest first-half total of the season. This time it was Indiana's inability to stop Cleveland's Big Three that caused the Pacers to lose 117-111. James eclipsed Bryant Thursday when he made a three-pointer to increase his playoff tally to 5,641 points from 202 postseason games.

James's Cavaliers stun Pacers with record rally
We turned the ball over and it hurt us. "We were always in the game, so we were little breakdowns from winning the game". The Cavaliers barely survived two late onslaughts from the Pacers - the Cavs nearly blew two fourth-quarter leads.

"Myself and Kyle, we kind have been brainstorming about it, how to get it to be more efficient", said James of working with Korver after Game One.

"We just never quit", coach Tyronn Lue said. "I had every intention to keep those guys in as long as they were playing well, but Kevin and Kyrie didn't have a problem with it at all".

In Memphis, guard Mike Conley scored 24 points and added eight assists as the Memphis Grizzlies defeated the San Antonio Spurs 105-94 to get back into their series.

It could easily be 2-1 in the Pacers' favor right now. Their loss snapped a streak of 10 consecutive playoff wins over the Grizzlies. "It was an incredible performance and just goes to show you why we love our teammates". He scored 11 points in the second quarter and even had a rare dunk.

The Bucks grabbed a 2-1 lead in the first-round Eastern Conference series.

Tony Parker added 15 points for the Spurs, who had three others score in double figures.
