Indiana Pacers' Myles Turner reacts after a dunk during the first half against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 3 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series Thursday, April 20, 2017, in Indianapolis. Lebron James, Kyrie Irving and Love combined for 89 points.

"It was someone that I always knew I had to be in the gym", James said.

73 - James scored or assisted on 73 points, the most points he has ever done so on in a playoff game.

"We're right there of what we know we can become, and we'll figure it out", added James, who contributed 25 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists. Jeff Teague added 23 on 8-for-12 shooting. This time it was Indiana's inability to stop Cleveland's Big Three that caused the Pacers to lose 117-111. "I didn't do it, so it was my fault", Stephenson said.

"I just saw turnovers", Lue said.

The Cavaliers got to within 77-62 early in the third quarter, but the Pacers quickly pushed their lead back to 20. Cleveland won the game 109-108 to take a 1-0 series lead.

"It's you guys writing us off that this game is going to be easy for the Cavs", said George, who had a team-high 32 points.

In San Antonio, Memphis Grizzlies coach David Fizdale was left fuming after watching his team slide to a 96-82 loss against the Spurs in their Western Conference showdown.

Kawhi Leonard finished with 37 points as the Spurs took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-7 series at AT&T Center.

But Fizdale unleashed a spectacular post-game tirade against the officiating crew, one that is nearly certain to bring disciplinary action from the league. It was the 13th playoff game in which he collected at least 30 points and 10 assists.

DeRozan missed all eight of his shots from the floor and finished with eight points, while the Raptors shot just 33 percent from the floor and went six-for-22 from three-point range.

He complained bitterly that officials had unfairly skewed the free throw count against his players.

A number of questionable shots and breakdowns on defense by Cleveland allowed IN to make a late charge but none of this seems to concern the player carrying the team's title hopes. Kyle Korver ran to the corner and Ellis, the lone defender, had to choose between heading to the corner to cover Korver or sticking with LeBron and trying to make a play on the ball. "Explain it to me".
