CLEVELAND, Ohio. – If the Pacers want to send LeBron James to the showers in this series, they will have to win the next two games after losing to Cleveland Wednesday night, 98-95.
After the Pacers led at the half, James took over in the first few minutes of the third, and the Pacers watched their seven-point lead evaporate.
Like he’s done all series, James put Cleveland on his back…going off for 44 and 10 boards.
After having an off game Monday night, Oladipo was a dreadful 2-15 from the floor for just 12 points.
Domantas Sabonis led the way for Indiana with 20 points off the bench. He tied the game with 33 seconds left.
James blocked Oladipo’s last-second drive and followed it up with a buzzer-beater three to seal the win.
Game 6 is Friday night back at Bankers Life. Tipoff is scheduled for 8 p.m.
