    Cavaliers Sweep Pacers


    Last Sunday the Cleveland Cavaliers swept the Indiana Pacers 4-0. Even though it was a sweep I think the Cavs could’ve played much better. I still think Lebron and the Cavs are still getting in playoff mode. They knew they were going to beat the Pacers for sure so they didn’t try as hard. All 4 of the games were very close.

    In the first game the Cavs only won by 1 point and the Pacers had the ball at the end of the game but came up short. The Cavs for the most part dominated the game but only ended up winning by 6 because the Pacers made a late run.

    I think the third game was the turning point in the series. At one point in the game the Cavs were down by 25 points and came back to win 119-114. Down the stretch of the game nor Kyrie or Kevin Love were in the game, Lebron brought the team back with an average lineup off of the bench. If you’re the Cavs you would have to feel pretty confident that Lebron came back from the biggest playoff deficit with a lineup of bench players.

    In the last game it was back and forth between both teams and the Pacers took the lead with a minute and a half left to go up by 2. The greatness of Lebron showed up yet again as he hit a three to go up by 1 and the Cavs ended up winning the game 106-102. The Cavs are still warming up in my opinion and they will continue to get better as the playoffs progress.
