Game 3 Showdown: Indiana Pacers vs

Apr 20 2018 Indianapolis IN USA Indiana Pacers forward Bojan Bogdanovic reacts to making a three pointer against the Cleveland Cavaliers during the fourth quarter in game three of the first round of the 2018 NBA Playoffs at Bankers Life Fieldhou

It's unclear how much - or if - he has practiced the last two days.

The Thunder's "big three" did not turn up midweek. "We want to go 2-0 but we did our job and got one".

Still, how many times can a 33-year-old, 15th-year pro carry an entire franchise, coaches included?

Despite early shooting troubles, Turner quietly had a nice game (18 points on 12 shots and 5 rebounds), notching several nice finishes at the rim. Jamal Crawford scored 16 points for the eighth-seeded Timberwolves, who are in the playoffs for the first time since 2004. And Oladipo, when allowed to play by the officials, continued to show that he is an elite finisher at the rim and a truly special player, contributing 22 points, 6 assists, and immeasurable amounts of #feathery in his 28 minutes.

The Cleveland Cavaliers established a big early lead and then held off a rally by the Indiana Pacers in Game 2 to even the series at a game apiece.

With Kyrie Irving gone (and out for the season due to a knee issue), Love has failed miserably in two playoff games as the alleged Robin to James' Batman. "If he's going to make those contested shots, it's going to be a long series". Lue said Love could have returned and "he's fine" for Game 3 on Friday.

The Bon-Ton could soon be long gone
Under WARN, employers are required to give 60 days advance notice of covered plant closings and covered mass layoffs. Attorneys and spokespeople for Bon-Ton did not immediately reply to Retail Dive's request for comment.

IN clawed back from an 18-point deficit and was within 95-92 when Oladipo, who scored 32 in the opener, somehow came free off a screen but missed maybe his easiest shot in two games.

Plus, as unstoppable as James was with 46 points, 12 rebounds and five assists, he received virtually no support. No one else had more than six. Even in the Game 2 loss, the Pacers were an 8-point underdog and had a truly bad start but managed to come back and were a Darren Collison missed 3-pointer away from tying the score with 25 seconds left.

It's worth reiterating: after a game one that went to the unbelievable, positive extreme, game two saw the Cavs at their most potent: a finish-from-everywhere-and-every-position Lebron, a supporting cast that was nailing their three-point shots (40% vs. a 27% outing from the Pacers), and a defensive team-effort that was at least passable and forced a discouraging 17 turnovers from the Pacers. Hood has 14 points. Neither Kevin Love nor George Hill are fully healthy.

Overall, the Pacers ended up taking home court advantage in this series. Green has, drum roll please, two. Right now, there's nobody on Cleveland besides him that you can count on night in and night out. "He's one of the most dynamic players in our league", Toronto coach Dwane Casey said. While that is a testament to the Cavs' depth, it's also a huge indictment of their top-level talent after the best player on the planet. Their largest margin of victory in the first-round sweep: six.So after four wins over in by an average of four points last postseason, is this really a surprise?After losing three of four to in in the regular season, we're shocked by the back-and-forth in the first two games?Let's face it. Cavs fans have been spoiled by a yearly run to the NBA Finals mostly filled with low-perspiration wins and foregone conclusions.That this won't be that is fairly obvious. Plus, Smith and forgotten man Tristan Thompson were very reliable as the fourth and fifth starters. "So we went back to it".

Who is going to "help" James?
