LeBron, Cavs escape with 109-108 win over Pacers in Game 1

Additionally, James has made six straight trips to the NBA Finals, four with the Miami Heat and two with the Cavaliers, and has the internal motivation necessary to push his teammates through the Eastern Conference once more.

The Indiana Pacers? They won five in a row to land here. They share a mutual respect that will be on display when Cleveland and IN match up IN the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs starting Saturday.

Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James (23) passes against Indiana Pacers' Myles Turner (33) in the first half in Game 1 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series, Saturday, April 15, 2017, in Cleveland. "But it starts with baby steps first and we understand that".

The Cavaliers welcomed these last two days to concentrate on how to defend the Pacers. "We have to be very determined, but we also have to be very smart about our game plan and how we execute that game plan, execute that (for as close to) 48 minutes as possible starting with Game 1".

When a team has LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving on its roster, and when that team has been able to call itself National Basketball Association champions since June 19, much is expected in the regular season. That hasn't happened since the Bill Russell-led Boston Celtics' teams from 50 years ago.

During the war, Hitler rounded up millions of Jews- including Germany's Jewish population- to commit the worst mass murder in recorded human history.

"I'm ecstatic to be here, my first time to watch the Cavaliers".

But, boy, have they been bad lately.

The Pacers finished the regular season strong, winning 5 straight games but Cleveland struggled down the stretch, going 12 of 15. But they've been questionable defensively all season (20th in scoring defense overall, 29th since the All-Star break).

The Cavs won the regular-season series over the Pacers with victories in three of the four games, but those contests were pretty competitive. But the Cavs have work to do.

Meanwhile, the Cavaliers signed guard Dahntay Jones and Edy Tavares, last Wednesday, Cavs GM David Griffin said, Jones played for the Cavaliers in the 2015- 2016 season, appearing in one regular season game and 15 playoff games during the team's title run. "We're second seed. It's not like we're eighth seed and we needed a team to win last night to back into the playoffs". What do you want? "We're hoping to create the same sort of feeling".

Putin, Tillerson discuss bad state of US-Russian ties, Kremlin says
Tillerson is considering the request, he said, "and we expect that Washington will have a constructive reaction". Moscow rejected calls by the U.S. to withdraw support for Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.

The Pacers (42-40) have a history with James in the playoffs. IN has a new coach in Nate McMillan and Pacer mainstays George Hill and Roy Hibbert are gone from those teams, but Paul George remains.

"We've got to go out there and play hard on both sides of the ball", forward Kevin Love said. "It's going to be tough".

One of the odd challenges of playing an 82-game schedule packed with travel and one-night stands is teams rarely get to practice - really practice - for a specific opponent. I'm looking forward to it.

"It's who I've wanted to match up against", he said.

"We have a job to do", George said. "This team was built to get to the playoffs". "If we do that, get our fans involved, get the city really behind us again, I think it could be (as good as 2016)". Also, James tallied 13 triple-doubles this season, including seven since March 1. On April 2, the two engaged in an epic 135-130 double-overtime win for Cleveland. Superstar small forward LeBron James racked up a triple-double on the night with 41 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists for Cleveland, while IN star small forward Paul George led all scorers on the night with 43 points.

PENCE WARNS NORTH KOREA: 'The era of strategic patience is over'
McMaster said that the USA will "undertake all actions we can, short of a military option, to try to resolve this peacefully". He said "we need to apply pressure on North Korea so they seriously respond to a dialogue" with the global community.

George said James' support helped him pull through the months following his injury. He's a great player.
