It was the first time the Cavaliers lost in the first-round since LeBron returned to the team and James' first first-round loss since 2012 when he was still with the Miami Heat.

The Cleveland Cavaliers came out and lost Game 1 of their playoff series against the Pacers; and they lost pretty convincingly.

Victor Oladipo led IN with 32 points, six rebounds, four assists and four steals IN the win.

But when it comes to playoff action alone, James is approaching the triple double king Magic Johnson, the only player to have tallied more triple doubles (30) than him.

Russell Westbrook had 29 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists and Carmelo Anthony added 15 points for the Thunder. While the Cavaliers' shooting from the field improved during the quarter, they again delivered some self-inflicted wounds by missing five free throws in the period.

Game 1, according to James, was a rude awakening for some of his teammates getting their first real taste of competing in the playoffs on a team with a target on its back as a title contender.

Harden made seven of 12 3-pointers, but Trevor Ariza, P.J. Tucker, Eric Gordon and Paul combined to make just three of their 22 tries.

The Cavs are hoping that's the case, and when they step on the court Wednesday night for Game 2 they'll already have something they didn't have Sunday - a playoff game under their belts. Lue called a timeout with less than a minute into the third quarter as Myles Turner and Oladipo scored back-to-back baskets.

Say this about Lance Stephenson - he makes any series more entertaining. Jeff Green played 27 minutes and did not score a single point.

Larry Nance Jr. (six points), Rodney Hood (two ), George Hill (two), and Jordan Clarkson (two) were the only Cavs to add to the scoreboard in the first quarter besides James (two points). Cleveland's struggles covered all facets of the shooting department as they were only eight of 34 from beyond the arc and 12 of 20 from the charity stripe in the game.

"Kevin Love was relatively anaemic". Stephenson posted five points in the first quarter. IN controlled the tempo from the start and hammered Cleveland into submission.

The Pacers took the fight to the Cavs. We're fully aware of his team, and we realize it's not going to be easy, but that doesn't mean we're just going to come in here and just fold.

If you've been following the NBA based on national broadcasts this year, you'd probably think the Cavs were clearly better than the Pacers.

"I have no idea, and I really don't care", Oladipo said, pausing after "idea" for effect. Oladipo wasn't seen as a franchise-changing player when IN acquired him along with Domantas Sabonis IN the trade for Paul George. The Celtics vs Bucks game 2 is scheduled for April 17 at 8:00pm ET.

Still, it's hard to find any major faults in the Blue & Gold's defensive effort in Game 1, particularly to start the game.
