LeBron James' 21-game winning streak in Round 1 ends today as the Cavaliers lose their first game in the NBA Playoffs 2018.

"I think the intensity", James said when asked where the Cavs tripped.

Despite the Pacers drawing first blood, James said the setback was a motivation for him to step up his game.

James admitted the revamped Cavaliers were surprised by the Pacers' explosive offence, but they would chalk it up as a lesson learnt ahead of Game 2 in Cleveland on Wednesday. "It's just, I mean, I'm down 0-1 in the first round". I wouldn't blame them for their overconfidence, considering the fact that LeBron has made the finals seven years in a row. "I'm the last guy to ask about how you're gonna feel the next couple of days". 1-10: LeBron James. The Cavs have also played better than the Pacers with their playoff rotations on the court.

IN took control from the outset, opening a 21-point lead in the first quarter and pushing it to 23 in the third.

Fortunately for IN, most of those shots didn't fall on Sunday, when the Cavs went just 8-for-34 (23.5 percent) from 3-point range. So I think, next game we'll be more relaxed."Clarkson (2-of-6) said he wasn't nervous, "just thinking instead of playing".

After the game, both players expressed mutual respect for one another.

The NBA playoffs rarely get upsets in the first round, but the Pacers downing the three-time defending East champions would certainly raise some eyebrows.

Eventually LeBron got his (24 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists), but the Pacers closed the game off the way they started it--with a strong defensive effort. Two of their starters - Jeff Green and George Hill - combined to shoot 3-of-14 on the night.

"Especially early on, we just had a number of them just go in and out", power forward Kevin Love said. They were more physical than us at the point of attack, they were more precise with what they wanted to do and we couldn't score the ball.

Due to injuries and the late acquisitions at the trade deadline, the starting five the Cavs put on the floor Sunday had only spent a handful of possessions together during the regular season. On Sunday, he gave the media, his teammates and the Utah Jazz a formal introduction.

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers were in solid form themselves as they had won six of their last eight regular season games but they just didn't come out with that sense of urgency and found themselves trailing by 20 points in the blink of an eye.

George set an Oklahoma City playoff record with eight 3-pointers, blowing past the previous record of five.

BOSTON - Al Horford had 24 points and 12 rebounds and Boston overcame Khris Middleton's long 3 that beat the fourth-quarter buzzer to top Milwaukee in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference series. The Pacers punished the 29th ranked Cavaliers defense with 38 points in the paint to lead the Cavs the entire game.
