Should Cavs fans panic now?
Oladipo was absolutely filthy, going off for 32 in his first Pacer playoff game. Honestly, this game was a classic underdog game. They handled Game 1 just fine. They have LeBron, after all, and they were on national television 39 times.
The Cavaliers had their lowest-scoring first period of the season and only five baskets with six turnovers in the opening quarter, drawing boos as they walked off at half-time trailing 59-38. The Pacers play on the edge with Stephenson, and they almost fell off with him tonight.
With Victor Oladipo leading the charge, the Pacers managed to secure a berth in the playoffs. If you saw how the Cavs played after the first quarter, they actually played very well. With all the nerves out of their system, the Cavs will take control of the series.
The 2018 NBA Playoffs kicked-off over the weekend and it has been action-packed so far. In fairness, many at the time would have agreed with the owner that the Pacers didn't get an impressive haul for George, particularly given that Oladipo, widely thought to be a solid but unspectacular combo guard, was in the first year of a four-year, $84 million contract extension. He shot an absurd 66% from three, while his average for the year is 37%.
Nevertheless, there's a certain irony to be found - especially in retrospect - in Gilbert criticizing another team for not getting enough back in return for its franchise player. Sunday they shot 23 percent.

They calmly walked off, business as usual. IN can defend home court and win the series now. And the Pacers were more "aggressive."They were more physical". Kevin Love only shot 2 shots inside the arc, which is completely unacceptable for a big man. LeBron will also get on his starters because no one in the starting lineup besides LeBron scored more than 10 points. "We came into this game playing with a mentality that we were gonna attack on both ends of the floor and play like we've been playing all year". Jordan Clarkson, making his playoff debut, scored just six points in 21 minutes. While the Cavaliers will undoubtedly play better in Game 2, the fact remains that the Pacers have had their number this season. "I'm not anxious what we showed (people)".
Then Khris Middleton forced overtime with an absurd 3-pointer at the buzzer that barely got off his fingertips in time.
The Pacers are feeling confident after beating the Cavs for fourth time this season. The real reason that I am confident in the Cavs is because at the end of the day one team has LeBron and the other one does not.
It was 92-91 with less than a minute to play when a pair of free throws by Horford made it 94-91.
The reason is that LeBron pointed out that he was down 3-1 in the National Basketball Association finals and now the Cleveland Cavaliers are down 0-1 in the first round of the National Basketball Association playoffs. I know that he will rally his teammates and make sure that he makes a deep run this postseason.
Chances are good that, if you hacked into Indiana's scouting reports, you'd find a game plan that looks remarkably like the video James, coach Tyronn Lue and the rest of the Cavs will be breaking down before Wednesday's Game 2.
