The Cleveland Cavaliers main man, LeBron James led all scorers with 46 points along with his 12 rebounds in order to tie the series (1-1) against the Indiana Pacers.
Impressive since the start of Game 2, the man who is also known as “the King” already collected 29 markers at the end of first half. It’s the usual LeBron James domination during the playoffs.
Although the Cavs controlled the game most of the quarters, they are fortunate enough to see the missed three-pointer of Victor Oladipo that could send the game into overtime with 27 seconds remaining in the shot clock.
However, there’s bad news for the Cavs fans as Kevin Love injured his left hand, it was the same injury he suffered at the beginning of the season. The power forward All-Star got his injury with only 3:43 remaining in the game. Love added 15 points to his team.
Three-point specialist Kyle Korver gave the home-team 12 points and all came from beyond the three-point land.
Victor Oladipo led his Indiana Pacers with his 22 points but was mostly lurked in the bench due to early foul troubles. Each time he got inserted in the lineup, Indiana closes the gap. Myles Turner added 18 points but not enough to make another upset.
Coach Nate McMillan’s squad orchestrated a fourth quarter comeback and was able to make the score close within 95-92 (in favor of the Cavs) from an 18-point deficit. Victor Oladipo got loose from his defender and found himself open in the three-point area but his potential game-tier shot unable to find the bottom of the net. LeBron James secured the rebound then able to convert three free-throws in the last twenty-two seconds of Game 2.
The Cavs were successful to defend their home but most especially they have avoided the 0-2 disadvantage before the series shift to Indiana.
