JR Smith sends motivation to LeBron James Video

Yet, 33-year-old LeBron James is in a class of his own, and any defense eventually falters against a player of his caliber. This is the third postseason series between the teams, all coming in the last three years: Cleveland took the first two, winning eight of the 10 games contested. The Cavaliers have been a mercurial team with a revolving door of roster moves leaving King James without a court.

Game 1 starts at 8 p.m. EDT Tuesday night.

The Rockets saw off the Minnesota Timberwolves 4-1 in round one, while the Jazz beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 4-2. James' buzzer beating 3 pointer was a devastating blow to IN, but fortunately for them they were able to bounce back IN game 6. Better offense. Better defense.

Hill totally settled the Cavs when he took the court for the first time in the third quarter (he was on a minutes restriction and the team feared his back may tighten up if he sat down after an initial burn in the first half). James had returned to the bench and was preparing to check back in when the struggling Love hit a huge 3-pointer for an 82-74 lead with 9 minutes 42 seconds to play, enabling James to keep sitting.

"Sometimes too much rest is not good", added Raptors head coach Dwane Casey, who cited Monday's Game 1 result between the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics, in which the rested Sixers were run out of the gym by a beat-up Boston team.

LeBron was magnificent throughout, leading the Cavs in points, minutes, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks, but his teammates pulled off the kind of disappearing act that would make David Copperfield jealous.

There are only a few times I get totally invested in a game.

Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan, right, congratulates Cleveland's LeBron James following last year's playoff sweep. This was at the point in the season where the Cavs were at their worst and not practicing.

The reference to last season is instructive. He respects LeBron, but he's ready to test himself against the best player in the game.

In the post or on the perimeter, the Pacers would not allow him to get anything easy.

"Just a little minor injury", James said. Cleveland's average odds to win the 2018 NBA Championship have grown from +675 on April 12th to +1000 on April 30th across a number of top online betting sites. Behind him in points is Kyle Lowry, who is throwing down 17.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 8.3 assists. He's done everything we've asked him to, he's grown in so many areas. Though the rookie forces opponents to take lower-quality shots, he isn't quite as skilled at disrupting the shooter. Now he shoots about average with 38 percent. Based on those traits, it will be interesting to see if James makes a concerted effort to attempt more post-ups and shots from distance.

Can Thompson deliver for more than one game - A forgotten man for the first six games of their series against IN in which he logged just 23 minutes, of which 14 was garbage time IN Cleveland's Game 6 blowout loss, center Tristan Thompson was thrown into the starting lineup by coach Tyronn Lue and responded with his best game of the entire 2017/18 season as he totaled 15 points and ten rebounds, grabbing five offensive boards and making five of six shots IN 35 minutes.

Do they double-team one of the best passers in league history, a human computer who thinks two steps ahead?
