CLEVELAND: There's a chance that LeBron James could end up being as motivated as ever this season, fueled by Kyrie Irving's trade demand and coming off a season in which he finished fourth in the MVP voting. Despite losing Irving, the Cavs remain the class of the Eastern Conference and it's hard to imagine any team denying them a fourth straight Finals appearance, particularly with Boston having suffered a major blow with the season-ending injury Gordon Hayward suffered in the season opener at Cleveland. Isaiah Thomas is expected back from his back injury by year's end, but his return could end up complicating things for head coach Tyronn Lue, who must keep everyone happy with their playing time. Kevin Love's move to center should open floor space for James, Dwayne Wade and Derrick Rose. James can opt out of his contract next summer and become a free agent and his future plans will hover over the Cavs all season. But back with Dwayne Wade, he and the Cavs seem to be in a happy place.
INDIANA: Paul George's departure completely changed Indiana's game plan. Rather than making moves like a potential championship contender, new president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard decided to rebuild on the fly. Conventional wisdom suggests this team will struggle, and it could. But the Pacers seem to be playing like a better unit and may have just enough to sneak into the Eastern Conference playoffs. Although it's expected to be Myles Turner who replaces George as the face of the franchise, the key to Indiana's success this season will be Victor Oladipo, a defensive stopper who can provide the consistent energy the Pacers were lacking last season. Oladipo's ability to play fast and to share the leadership duties with Turner could finally push the 6-foot-4 guard to have that breakthrough season expected from the No. 2 draft pick four years ago.
Cavs hope to even series with Pacers

LeBron James has been in this playoff position before, just not in the first round.

With Cleveland down 2-1 to the Indiana Pacers in the first round, James was asked if Game 4 in Indianapolis Sunday was a must win.

"It's the postseason," said James, who is 10-0 in his career in first-round playoff series with Cleveland and Miami. "Every game is a must win. You want to come in and play well and win no matter what. No matter if you have home-court advantage or if you're starting on the road, that's the mindset you have to have. I felt like (Friday) was a must win. We didn't win, obviously, but it's the same mindset on Sunday."

James, who scored 28 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and delivered eight assists in a 92-90 road loss Friday night, rejected what he felt were reporters' attempts to ask if the other players needed to do more.

"You guys think I'm going to throw my teammates under the bus? I'm not about that," James said. "Guys just, we have to be better, including myself. Had six turnovers (Friday). I was horrible in the third quarter, couldn't make a shot. If I had made some better plays in the third quarter, the lead doesn't skip."

The Pacers cut a 17-point halftime deficit to six points in the third quarter and finally took their first lead in the fourth quarter.

"We know we all gotta play better as a collective group, no matter who it is," James said. "We got production to start the game and in the second half there wasn't much production. We still had a chance to win. We've got to regroup and figure how we can be better in Game 4."

Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said the Cavaliers were limited because George Hill's back "locked up" in the second half. Hill played only nine minutes in the second half, scoring two of his 13 points. Lue used James and Jordan Clarkson rather than backup point guard Jose Calderon in the fourth quarter. If Hill can't go Sunday, Lue said he will likely start Calderon.

Hill had an MRI on Saturday, but the results weren't back. He is listed as questionable for Game 4 with back spasms. Hill was hurt during Game 1 when Trevor Booker set a back screen and felt stiffness before Game 2, but played 20 minutes.

For the Pacers, Bojan Bogdanovic was the difference maker, scoring 15 of his team-high 30 points in the fourth quarter. Bogdanovic struggled shooting the first two games of the series.

Bogdanovic, who made 7 of 9 3-pointers, kept his focus after two quick fouls in the first quarter and had to leave briefly in the fourth when he picked up his fifth foul. The seven 3-pointers tied a franchise playoff record, also held by Reggie Miller twice, Chuck Person and Paul George.

"I thought it was going to be another poor performance from myself, but in the second half I started hitting shots and started feeling (much) better and I think a did a great job (Friday night)," the Croatian forward said.

Bogdanovic said he was most pleased with his defense against James.

"Everybody thought before this season that I cannot play defense," he said. "I don't say that I am playing great defense, but I am working hard at trying to make it tough for each offensive player that I am guarding."

Bogdanovic said he tries to push James so he catches the ball far from the basket.

"Against those type of players you just try to stay aggressive on them," Bogdanovic said.

Pacers coach Nate McMillan was impressed with his ability to produce both ways.

"You're taking a pounding if you're on the defensive end of the floor if you're guarding LeBron," McMillan said. "But offensively he found some energy. He got some good looks and he knocked them down."

The Pacers came back to win eight times during the regular season after being down 15 or more points.

"We've been resilient," guard Victor Oladipo said. "We made an adjustment in the second half and it helped us. But it's only one game; I'm looking forward to Sunday."
