CLEVELAND (AP) - Blown big leads.

Cleveland Cavaliers head coach, Tyronn Lue, said he does not want star, LeBron James, to change his free throw motion.

No. 0 may not be able to be this efficient again, but if he plays somewhat like he did in Game 2 the rest of the postseason, there's a very good chance the Cavs will make their third Finals appearance in as many seasons.

In the eyes of his Cleveland Cavaliers teammates, power forward Kevin Love has put on an inspiring performance during the team's 117-111 Game 2 win over the Indiana Pacers on Monday during the opening round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs at Quicken Loans Arena.

"I didn't know it was the biggest comeback", said James, who became the third-highest scorer in the playoffs with 5,670 points, ahead of Kobe Bryant and trailing only Michael Jordan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Cleveland seemed completely disengaged for the first 24 minutes, when they gave up two 37-point quarters to the Pacers and found themselves down 25 points at halftime. The Cavaliers had led 32-29 after an attritional first quarter but began to pull away in the second with James to the fore. I have to wonder if we'll notice when the Cavs turn it on, or if this is what they are satisfied with.

"We just need him to challenge Tristan [Thompson], keep him off the boards", George said of the 21-year-old Turner.

The Cavaliers have built double-digit leads in the second half of both games, only to let the Pacers back in late.

James added 10 rebounds and seven assists, but had eight of Cleveland's 19 turnovers. This is only the second time in Pacers franchise history that in has trailed a playoff series 3-0.

Paul George scored 32 for IN, which now has a steep hill to climb to get back IN the series.

Trailing by 26 with 49 seconds left in the second quarter, the Cavs outscored the Pacers 35-17 in the third quarter to cut the deficit at the break to seven.

The Pacers regrouped, ripped off 13 straight points and were down 113-109 after George hit a three-pointer with 20 seconds left. If Thursday night was an indication, the Pacers will have absolutely no momentum heading into the next game in front of their home fans. "I trust the guys on that floor, but I just thought - you know, I watched it kind of unravel - that's when I should have stepped in and demanded the ball a little bit more", he said. They have lost large leads late in games. "We're playing for pride now". IN extended the lead to 20 on back-to-back 3-pointers from Jeff Teague and Lance Stephenson, and then it was all Cavs. He finished with 12.

San Antonio had a better start than in Game 1. He even held James in check in the first half.
