    If it was against the rockets, Miles would have made that.

    Couple of costly turnovers by Pacers in the 4th.. this game was theirs. Just gotta look forward to tie the series in game 2. Lance is actually playing well. Need more of him on the floor. PG needs to score more. That last play no matter what happens, should have been his (PG) to score. Heck, he should have hit a contested 3 since he just made one before. Damn, really wanted Pacers to win this game.

    Cavs look really weak. Playoffs haven't put a pep in their step at all. Very lucky they were playing the Pacers, who only have one guy that can create.

    PG was ticked off he didn't get to take the last shot but the Pacers looked completely unprepared for the predictable last second double team.

    Eastern first round usually sucks. Half of the teams in it just suck.

    Since they were down they should have shot the ball earlier.

    Wonder why didn't at least run a basic screen for him there, makes no sense to have him out beyond the 3pt line with no help whatsoever.

    nate mcmillan was probably too happy that JR was guarding PG on the inbounds that he didn't even think of a counter to a potential double team. so foolish, i think most ppl with good basketball knowledge saw the double team coming from a mile away when bron was on lance guarding the inbounds.

    and i disagree with some here. i think pacers were pretty fortunate to make it this close. i'll predict cavs with a double digit win next game.

    Pacers had a chance there and blew it. Still I don't think Cavs look that dangerous yet.

    I really think the Cavs might be done, they have no energy coming off the bench, 3/4 almost retired guys, no size, no athleticism...their starting 5 is still very good but i don't think Lebron can pull another miracle.

    I'm with you. I'm not even sure they'll get out of the East

    That was a good look from miles. Cavs look lethargic

    Nate McMillan is not known as a creative offensive coach. Doesn't surprise me at all the Pacers were unprepared. If not a screen, you have to punish whoever comes out to help double-team. Instead, the Pacers cleared out and when LeBron joined JR Smith on the cover, PG's teammates reacted by going "huh" because there was no Plan B. Their only option on the last possession was a PG isolation or bust. Fortunately for the Cavs, they were smart enough to take away the iso.

    Pacers lucked out anyway and got a decent shot.

    The Raptors have all the weapons to stop them. Losing the #1 spot will be costly the Cavs.

    I don't believe in Boston. That team ain't going to beat the cavs.

    o_O That's why I was talking about Toronto. Losing the #1 spot means playing the Raptors in the Semis.

    You are just a misdirected Kyle Lowry homer. He's not a Houston rocket anymore.

    Lol, I would've been up for a factual debate, but forgot who I'm talking to. Nevermind.
