Indiana Pacers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers - 4/27/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

27 April, 2018, 00:35 | Author: Hannah Francis
  • LeBron James Bojan Bogdanovic

He also became the oldest player, at 33, to average a triple-double per game - positive double digit statistics - over the course of a month, with 27 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 10.5 assists over 10 games in February.

The Cavs, who led by 12 in the third quarter, survived despite another awful offensive night from Kevin Love (11 points on 2-for-11 shooting, 10 rebounds) and a scoreless one from J.R. Smith (0-for-8), who can be excused because he was largely responsible for holding Oladipo (12 points, 12 rebounds) to 2-for-15 shooting, making Indiana's leading scorer 12-for-50 over the last three games. The 2015 Finals come to mind when Irving and Love were out injured and James put up a valiant 35/13/8 statline against the Warriors when his top running mate was Matthew Dellavedova.

While that 3-pointer still would have been enough to give Wednesday's win to the Cavs even if a goaltend had been called, the non-call still didn't sit well with the Pacers.

0 - After playing well in limited time in Game 4, Tristan Thompson was a DNP-Coach's Decision in Game 5.

The Pacers were shell-shocked after Game 5 and have to recover Friday at home or their Cinderella season will come to an end. Doesn't get much better than that. "He really was able to impose his will". Rodney Hood has been shooting an atrocious 20% from 3-point range since the beginning of the playoffs, while playing nearly 20 minutes each game.

In Oklahoma, Russell Westbrook recorded 45 points as the Thunder posted a 107-99 victory over the Utah Jazz to cut their series lead to 3-2, while DeMar DeRozan poured in 32 points to lead the Toronto Raptors to a 108-98 win over the visiting Washington Wizards for a 3-2 series lead.

While Oladipo worked painstakingly to avoid Cleveland's pick-and-roll traps, James operated as if the defense were immaterial.




But while James' shot will long be remembered, the Pacers were stinging from his block they felt was illegal. "It will be talked about today, tomorrow, but Friday is Game 6 and we got to figure out a way to play a complete four-quarter game".

Early in the fourth quarter, it appeared as if the Cavs were cruising to victory with a double-digit lead.

James wound up with 44 points on 14-of-24 shooting from the floor.

I know this is tough.

Lue made it a point to run Darren Collison, the Pacers best three-point shooter percentage-wise, off the line.

Even in a career stocked with incredible playoff performances, James delivered a certified instant classic Wednesday night in one of those teeter-totter Game 5s that often determine seasons.

That being said, IN has still found a way to put the ball IN the basket, scoring 95 IN their last outing despite just 12 from Oladipo. "I wouldn't rather be doing anything else".
