◼️ Pacers shook the Cavaliers 98-80 in their first postseason clash
LeBron James added a triple-double but was limited to only 24 points by the Indiana Pacers, who handed the Cleveland Cavaliers star his first NBA Playoffs first-round loss since May 6, 2012, when he was playing for the Miami Heat.
James left in 21 the record of consecutive victories in this instance when falling with the Cavs 98-80 against the Pacers of a intractable Víctor Oladipo, that with its 32 units overshadowed the King in his own kingdom.
Indiana took the first of the series to the best of seven games and extended its hegemony over Cleveland this season by reaching a record of 4-1 in direct confrontations this season.
To the great performance of Oladipo was added a superb performance by Myles Turner and Bojan Bogdanovic, who with 16 and 15 units respectively, finished rounding off a historic afternoon in Ohio.
King James has never lost a first round series, but this is the first time he falls in the first game of a first round series in his entire career.
