"We knew we had to take (some) punches, but it was a flurry, more than we expected", James said.
6 points, 5 rebounds, had some blocks and good moments, but I'm looking forward to the older and more experienced version of Myles Turner. According to Michael Marot of the Associated Press, that was the greatest second-half comeback in the history of the NBA Playoffs.
The Cavs comeback victory was the largest halftime come-from-behind win in National Basketball Association playoff history.
As for James, he keeps moving up in the record books, too.
LeBron Passes Kobe: LeBron James passed Kobe Bryant for third place on the NBA's all-tim playoff scoring list.
Cleveland's defense was more impressive than James' offense, holding IN to 5-for-26 shooting IN the period (19.2 percent).
20 - James has won 20 straight first-round games, tying the longest such streak since the National Basketball Association went to the current playoff format in 1983-84.
"We've been in this situation before where it's a test of your character and who shows up", Pacers coach Nate McMillan said. The network will stream the game via its website, as well as the Watch TNT app. No matter what defense the Pacers threw at James, he worked around it or found an open teammate for a shot. All he wants to do is chase a fourth title. "I don't settle, my mind is fresh, and sometimes, certain things just happen". IN has seen George score 23.7 points per game. He scored 36 points, grabbed a playoff career-high 15 rebounds and finishing with nine assists, one short of his second postseason triple-double.
After the half, the Cavs came alive on both ends which, predictably, meant a dominant effort from James himself.
And it still wasn't enough.
In Memphis, guard Mike Conley scored 24 points and added eight assists as the Memphis Grizzlies defeated the San Antonio Spurs, 105-94, to get back into their series.
The Grizzlies pulled within 2-1 in this first-round Western Conference series. Some Cavalier stands next to the switch at halftime, chain smoking cigarettes, chuckling at enthused Pacers fans who thought their team might actually be coming through in Game 3, before flipping it into the "on" position.
The incredible rally ruined Paul George's big night.
The Cavs held a 2-0 lead in the first-round series before tip-off at Bankers Life Fieldhouse but had to fight back from a 25-point half-time deficit - a feat never previously achieved in the postseason - to secure a 119-114 victory. He's undefeated in his teams' opening series since 2013, and it doesn't make much sense to pick against the Cavs until they suffer their first loss. No other Cavalier had more than 13 points. That game will also be on the Pacers' home court, with a potential Game 5 set for next Tuesday night at Quicken Loans Arena. Channing Frye had 13, Kyle Korver had 12 and Deron Williams had five points.
