'The King' and the Cleveland Cavaliers are officially on upset alert.

 

After an embarrassing 98-80 loss in game one of their playoff series against the Indiana Pacers, the Cavs will be looking to re-focus before game two Wednesday. Victor Oladipo and the Pacers came out the gates hot and never looked back. The Cavs struggled all night on the offensive end due in part to the Pacers' smothering defense.

They came in, they more more physical. They were more aggressive, and usually in the playoffs those teams win. We just have to be more physical.

 

LeBron James finished the game with a triple-double tallying 24 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds while Victor Oladipo led the way for the Pacers with 32 points, 4 assists, and 6 rebounds. Oladipo was hot from behind the line making 6 of 9 attempts. Bojan Bogdanovic pitched in 15 points while Myles Turner dominated the paint with 16 points. Tune in for game 2 Wednesday night at 6:00 PM CST on TNT to see if the Cavs can rally back to tie the series.
