It was a must-win for the Cavs, who couldn’t afford to fall behind 3-1. But it may have been a must-win for the Pacers, too, who made their path to the second round more difficult with the loss.

Fourth-seeded Cleveland still has work to do, but the fifth-seeded Pacers must now play two of their final three games on the road if the series goes seven games. It won’t be easy. LeBron James has never lost a first-round series. Yet, the Pacers have proven themselves capable of winning the series, too.

As teams in the East know so well, it’s difficult to beat a James-led team four times in a series. James has advanced to the NBA Finals in seven consecutive seasons. This might be his toughest first-round series since beating Washington in six games in 2008.

The others had just enough for the Cavs

The Cavs still need more production from players such as Jeff Green (eight points), Kyle Korver (18 points), Larry Nance Jr. (six points), Jordan Clarkson (12 points) and Rodney Hood (six points), but they delivered enough – namely Korver, who found his shot in the second half. Korver made two key three-pointers late in the fourth quarter – one giving Cleveland a 94-93 lead and the other giving the Cavs a 99-95 lead.

Without Korver, who was 4-for-14 on threes coming into the game, the Cavs might be looking at a 3-1 deficit.
