INDIANAPOLIS — LeBron James has been the first-round king for 12 years.
On Sunday night, he needed Kyle Korver‘s 3-point shooting to put him in position to extend his reign.
The two combined for all of Cleveland’s points in a late 10-2 run, helping the Cavaliers to a 104-100 victory over the Indiana Pacers to even the series at 2. James drew boos from the crowd after flipping the ball up the court to run out the clock.
“You don’t ever want to go down 3-1 against anybody, no matter if it’s the first round or if you’re fortunate enough to get all the way to the finals,” James said. “It’s just too difficult.”
