Cavs hold off Pacers to tie playoff series

Reuters

LeBron James had an interesting analogy when he was asked about his technical foul on Lance Stephenson in the 4th quarter of Cleveland's game 4 win over the Indiana Pacers.

He had 32 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists in Sunday's win; a triple-double in Game 1; 46 points in Game 2; and 28 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists in Game 3.

What now becomes a pivotal Game 5 resumes on Wednesday night back at Quicken Loans Arena with the contest set to tip off just after 7 p.m. ET. "Boo!" said the leather-lunged "Boo-sier" State fans repeatedly at Bankers Life Fieldhouse Sunday night - against everyone in IN except Bobby Knight (too old) and those doughty kids from Hickory High (too young, at least in the movie.) Cavs ballJames finished with 32 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists. In Game 4 on Sunday, the two managed to add a few more highlights to their rivalry.

After taking a 92-89 lead with 6:12 to play following a rare LeBron technical foul, the Pacers scored only three points in nearly six minutes until scoring five points in the final 15.2 seconds. By making that shot, Smith gave the team a six-point lead heading into the second quarter. Myles Turner and Victor Oladipo each scored 17, though Oladipo struggled through a poor shooting night.

Despite having seven players score in double figures, making more baskets, grabbing more offensive rebounds and matching Cleveland's 12 3s, in missed six of its last eight shots.

"You don't ever want to go down 3-1 against anybody, no matter if it's the first round or if you're fortunate enough to get all the way to the finals", James said.

Batsh was a lecturer at Universiti Kuala Lumpur , specialising in power engineering, according to the university. He had lived there with his family for the past eight years and was an imam at a local mosque.

Kevin Love continued to struggle in the playoffs, manhandled inside by Thaddeus Young, especially in the third quarter.

"We've got to use the home court to our advantage, like we did in Game 2", Love said.
Cleveland outscored IN 17-7 on fast-break points. James extended his record of games with 30 points, five rebounds and five assists to 75. That effort failed, but in the closing minutes of the period, the Cavs went cold by missing their last six shots from the field, part of 29 percent shooting for the quarter in that area.

While trailing 103-100 with nine seconds remaining, it appeared the Pacers had forced a jumpball after Indiana's Lance Stephenson wrestled for the ball with Cleveland's Jeff Green.

With Hill out, the Cavs plugged veteran Jose Calderon into the starting lineup less than 48 hours after not even seeing the court.

30-point game in the postseason, joining Michael Jordan (109) as the only players in league history to reach the century mark. He scored just one point and missed all three of his shots (all jumpers) in the third quarter as Cleveland's lead slipped away. He went 4-for-14 for 10 points in the first three games.
