Despite all the woes, the Pacers are just -7 for the series, but at 0-2, are looking less at making a statement and more at not letting it become a sweep.

If there was a game for the Indiana Pacers to come in and take the wind out of the sails in the defending champion's house, it was the first one.

However, it was the Cavs' turnovers that allowed the Pacers to stick around, cutting a 13-point Cleveland lead down to five. Shumpert quickly made his presence felt, guarding George on one end and hitting a 3 on another to cap a 7-0 run to start the third quarter that put the Cavs back up by 12.

"I wanted to play, they didn't want me to play", said Smith, who is determined to play in Game 3. And I've kicked it to him and he's made the big shot. If the Pacers have any chance to win this series, it's on the shoulders of their superstar.

James was one of the biggest offenders, with eight turnovers, something Lue blamed on fatigue. "We needed that spark".

"He's got to learn to control himself". Even when LeBron James checked him, George didn't struggle to get his shots off and get into the lane. Morris and Millsap exchanged heated words before the teams retreated to their locker rooms at halftime, and more fireworks could be coming in Game 2. His body language has to improve, just for the team.

"We know what's at stake", C.J. Miles said. "A lot of it is just his heart and his competitiveness", George said. The Indiana Pacers are also average in pretty much any statistical category, so the next summer is probably make or break time for them. While McMillan was able to successfully move Glenn Robinson III into the rotation in his return from injury, his short term positive play (four points in nine minutes) was well less than Monta Ellis, who had two points in 25 minutes. On Monday, he scored 13 points in 26 minutes, but he picked up four personal fouls. IN is 0-9 when dropping the first two games in a series. He needs 37 points to pass Kobe Bryant (5,640 points) for third place in National Basketball Association playoff scoring history, and needs two more rebounds to pass Robert Parish (1,765 rebounds) for eighth in postseason history.

Cleveland police were searching, and still are searching, for Steve Stephens, a 37-year-old man who shot and killed a 74-year-old man on Sunday, then posted a video of the murder to Facebook.

Stephenson had a strong workout with Cleveland in January before latching on with in, but coach Tyronn Lue said his recent injury issues - groin surgery and an Achilles issue - dissuaded the Cavs from signing him.

The Pacers went 29-19 at home.
