- LeBron James led a second half assault as the Cleveland Cavaliers set a playoff record by storming back from a 25-point halftime deficit to defeat the Indiana Pacers 119-114 on Thursday. James tallied 41 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists as the Cavaliers seized a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference first-round series. "They came out and jumped on us in the first half, but when we came into the locker room at halftime, I told the guys, 'Let's just get a couple of stops and see what happens,'" James said. The Cavaliers scored 70 points to just 40 for the Pacers in the second half. Kevin Love, J.R. Smith, Kyrie Irving and Channing Frye each scored 13 points for the defending NBA champions while Kyle Korver added 12.
