No timetable set for his return, appears to be a family issue. I think one of his sons has had some health issues but I'm not 100% sure. Cavs will have to step up without their MVP.

It'll happen for sure.

Always thought highly of people I met from Cleveland, have always said their loyal fans deserve a title. Honestly if it wasn't for Lebron going to the Cavaliers and the Browns drafting Manziel, I would have never rooted against either team.

Great close to that quarter, starters are carrying this game. Haven't said that in awhile. If they can keep up this play and the bench plays as usual when Wade returns this team takes a complete 180. Still need better defense but the Pacers are hitting some very tough ones.

I honestly think if we maintain this level of defense Indiana's offense will cool off.

I'm predicting a 20+ win for the Cavs, to be honest.

I don't mind him being hot. If he had a normal JR game and we're probably only winning by a few points at the half.

The key thing to me is that JR was wide open on 4 of his 6 made threes, whereas Indiana's made threes have mostly been contested. They have 14 points that were scored when there were 3 or less seconds left on the shot clock (10 of which were from contested jump shots, 2 from free throws).

Cavs just need to come out and play the same way in the 2nd half.

Well said. Great post. I hope JR is able to build some confidence from the going forward. The better his shot is the more it opens up things for the rest of the starters, particularly IT who needs it the most right now.

completely agree. Still not something you want to lose to tho. I'd rather have my team lose another way than being outworked. If we get outworked it just pisses me off. Inferior teams rely on that, we're an inferior team, so that means we'd be losing in our own game.

Just complete rust.

He's doing a lot of jump passes which leads to turnovers. Lots of dribbling in traffic. Simple passes are way off course - just throwing it right to defenders. His shot appears to be flatter than normal, doesn't seem to have his legs under him yet.

He was HORRIBLE tonight, but everything I've seen has a lot to do with rust. He'll get it together.

The the comment that the team is falling apart is supported by a lot of other drama around the Cavs, this is just another thing seen.

Usually by now LeBron would have done something to bring them back together, it's like he can't be bothered this year.
