It has been well documented that the Cleveland Cavaliers have had a chaotic season. From the purge of the roster at the trade deadline to head coach Tyronn Lue having a leave of absence, it has been a wild one for the Cavaliers.
Amidst the chaos, the Cavaliers found a way to secure the fourth spot in the playoffs, drawing the Indiana Pacers in the first round. Many believed the Cavaliers would run through this series but the Pacers had other plans.
The Pacers began the series by thrashing the Cavaliers in game one, 98-80. Victor Oladipo could not be contained, which resulted in an embarrassing loss.
After the Cavaliers were able to tie things up at one game a piece, they proceeded to blow a huge lead in game three. The Pacers roared back behind a huge game from Bojan Bogdanovic who seemed to make big play after big play down the stretch.
The Cavaliers remain confident after the loss and will look to build on how they played during the first half. It will be interesting to see how LeBron James and company respond to the meltdown that took place in game three. They will look to tie things up at two games a piece in order to avoid the deadly 3-1 deficit.
