Cavaliers' LeBron James: Records double-double in Game 4 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James totaled 33 points (13-25 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-9 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists, four steals, and two blocks in 45 minutes during Sunday's 106-102 win versus the Pacers in Game 4.

James was the only Cavalier to play more than 37 minutes, but he'll now have nearly a week off (at minimum) before the second round begins. While James continues to struggle from the charity stripe, he has been shooting lights out from the field while contributing his usual high-quality numbers in every statistical category.

Cavaliers' J.R. Smith: Buries four three-pointers in comeback win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (hamstring) started at shooting guard and submitted 13 points (4-9 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 31 minutes in a 119-114 win over the Pacers on Thursday in Game 3 of the series.

Smith picked up a hamstring injury in Game 2 that forced his early departure and kept him questionable heading into Game 3, but he was able to suit up and helped give the Cavs a lift with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love combining to shoot 8-for-29 from the field. The Cavaliers have been waiting patiently for Smith to break out of his season-long shooting slump, and perhaps his solid showing from beyond the arc Thursday will serve as a springboard for him to offer a more consistent impact on the offensive end. He had connected on only 25.6 percent of his three-point attempts in his last seven games heading into Thursday.

Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Scores 13 points, sits out final 14 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Love finished with 13 points (4-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 27 minutes in Thursday's 119-114 win over the Pacers in Game 3 of the series.

The Cavs' leaky defense conceded 74 points to the Pacers in the first half to fall behind by 25 at the break, but the reigning champs righted the ship out of halftime, winning the third quarter by a 35-17 margin. Aside from nailing a three-pointer and a pair of free throws, Love didn't have a major role in the comeback, and coach Tyronn Lue ended up rolling with Channing Frye at power forward the rest of the way after Love subbed out with just over two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Don't expect that to be a regular pattern in Sunday's Game 4, nor the rest of the postseason, as Lue seemingly just wanted to reward his key bench contributors with some extra run for helping ignite the comeback Thursday.

Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Shoots 4-for-17, benched in fourth quarter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving provided 13 points (4-17 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four assists and two rebounds across 28 minutes in a 119-114 win over the Pacers on Thursday in Game 3 of the series.

Down 25 points at halftime, the Cavaliers looked to be on their way to a blowout loss in Game 3, but thanks to a brilliant performance from LeBron James (41 points, 13 rebounds, 12 assists), Cleveland was able to claim a momentous comeback victory. Irving was nowhere to be found in the fourth quarter, however, as coach Tyronn Lue benched both the point guard and co-star Kevin Love, allowing James and some of the team's secondary players to finish off the Pacers. Irving probably won't have many more 4-for-17 shooting games left in him during the playoffs, so expect him to see closer to 35 minutes Sunday in Game 4 as the Cavaliers look to close out the series.

Cavaliers' LeBron James: Leads massive comeback win with triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James amassed 41 points (14-27 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 7-14 FT), 13 rebounds, 12 assists, two blocks and one steal across 45 minutes in a 119-114 Game 3 win over the Pacers on Thursday.

With the Cavaliers trailing by 25 points at halftime, James put the team on his back over the final 24 minutes to help Cleveland turn in the greatest second-half comeback in postseason history. He poured in 28 of his 41 points after the break to pass Kobe Bryant for third time all time in postseason scoring, notching his 17th career postseason triple-double. All three games of the Cavs' first-round series with the Pacers have been competitive, but with the four-time MVP on their side, Cleveland has to feel good about its chances to finish off Indiana on the road Sunday in Game 4.
