James's Cavaliers stun Pacers with record rally

The Cavaliers barely survived two late onslaughts from the Pacers - the Cavs nearly blew two fourth-quarter leads.

The Cavaliers were up by 18 points in the final quarter but relaxed and let the Pacers get to within four points in the final minute.

In the third quarter, Cleveland took advantage of a mismatch underneath and pounded the ball inside to Love, who scored 10 straight and drew a charging foul on Lance Stephenson in a span of two minutes as the Cavs opened an 89-70 lead.

Kyrie Irving ripped the Pacers with 37 points, including a career-playoff-best 25 in the second half. But they also blew a 3-1 lead, so anything is possible.

Never mind that the Cleveland Cavaliers almost blew another late double-digit lead in their 117-111 Game 2 victory over the Indiana Pacers to go up 2-0 in their Eastern Conference first-round series.

In Game 3 on Thursday, look for Turner to come out and play more aggressively in front of the in fans.

LeBron James scored 41 points to go along with 13 rebounds and 12 assists.

Trump attacks Canada's supply management for dairy as unfair to US
The work would start immediately, Trump said. "Our government looks forward to sitting down with the United States. As many as 70 dairy farms could lose $50 million in sales if Canada's trade policies remain in place.

"We're just not taking the fight to them right now", Paul George said. In Game 1, the Cavs had a 118.9 defensive rating, which would have been the worst in the league over the course of the season.

"Shump was unbelievable", Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said. We turned the ball over and it hurt us. "We were always in the game, so we were little breakdowns from winning the game". LeBron has spent time on Ellis to rest while J.R. Smith checks PG, and LeBron is at his most risky when he can help and read passing lanes for easy steals.

Iman Shumpert, who didn't play at all in Game 1, replaced Smith and scored five points. It's hard to come off the bench right after halftime.

Thomas to play Game 2, then fly to sister's funeral • Celtics coach Brad Stevens says Isaiah Thomas plans to play in Game 2 Tuesday night against the Chicago Bulls, then head to Washington state to be with his family and help complete funeral arrangements for his sister.

The Cleveland Cavaliers can take full control of this series with a victory here to take a 2-0 series lead. We sorta believed him, because the Cavs had a top-10 defense a year ago and featured players with strong defensive reputations like Tristan Thompson and Iman Shumpert. Shump sparked that, made a couple shots for us also. They shot 11 times in the paint and had 23 free throws. "The guys kept feeding me", Love added. "Our bigs have to make plays at that point, and we didn't."C.J". They shot 18 times and had 32 free throws. But as much as we love Fizdale and this Grizzlies team, the Spurs are on a different level.

While they might not be a 73-win team like last season, the off-season addition of Kevin Durant will definitely bolster the squad's chances if a series gets close. That's unacceptable. That's unprofessional. "We're not doing anything aggressively right now".
