Tyronn Lue wants LeBron James to be more aggressive

But while he knows the narrative before Wednesday's Game 2 will be on the struggles of Cleveland's playoff newcomers, James isn't anxious.

James finished with a triple-double (24 points, 12 assists, 10 rebounds) in the 98-80 loss Sunday. I was down 3-1 in the finals. "It's not over", said Myles Turner, who bounced back from his late regular season struggles with 16 points on only 9 shots to go with his 8 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks. "I was down 1-3 in the (2016) Finals", he said, referring to Cleveland's historic 4-3 comeback victory over the Golden State Warriors.

He is only the second player in National Basketball Association playoff history to reach that mark.

It was the first time the Cavaliers lost in the first-round since LeBron returned to the team and James' first first-round loss since 2012 when he was still with the Miami Heat. We'll see what they're going to do. The first one's a feel-out game.

Jordan Clarkson, making his playoff debut, was 2-for-6 from the field. However, he didn't even take a shot until the 1:52 mark of the first quarter, when he was fouled by Domantas Sabonis. Jose Calderon, who has never made it out of the first round before, went 0-for-3.

The Indiana Pacers started the playoffs the same way as the regular season: With the mindset of proving the world wrong.

As it has now been pointed out several times, across various different media markets, the Indiana Pacers have had one nationally televised game, I repeat one, compared to the 39 nationally televised games the Cleveland Cavaliers have had this season. It happens that fast. Eh, you can't simulate that. You can't simulate what's going on out there.

"Sometimes I fall into my own trap of just spacing everything because that allows other guys to get downhill, [LeBron James] to play his game". Now, they are getting just that. Even the older guys as well. All I'm focused on is myself and becoming the best Victor Oladipo possible.

The Pacers took the fight to the Cavs, and Indiana's players are battling critics who say they can't compete with Cleveland. During those series, Lance Stephenson emerged as one of the NBA's most prolific pests.

He made his presence felt in the battle of the boards with a game-high 17 rebounds but scored just nine points on a lowly eight attempts.

"Is it?" James said. "He's a competitor. He don't back down from nobody, and I definitely don't as well".

This series could be pretty damn good.

IN coach Nate McMillan acknowledged that he kept Stephenson on somewhat of a short leash. "He's a very coachable kid", McMillan said. The fifth-seeded Pacers were supposed to be a sacrifice, the first-round foregone conclusion that LeBron James' opponents always have been. You have to control your emotions out there. We didn't know if Jeff (Teague) was going to stick around. "We've got to be ready for anything they throw our way".

While it's great that he wants to get his teammates inflow, he's the best player on the team, and the Cavs have their best chance of winning when he's on the top of his game.

I am not anxious that the Cavs are in jeopardy of getting beat in the series, or even seeing six or seven games against the Pacers. Only time will tell if they can sustain that energy for the remainder of the series.

"I already had fuel", he said according to the Indy Star". I need the two days now.
