It also was the first playoff-opening loss for James, who came in 12-0 in Game 1s and didn't realize he had been ideal starting the postseason. After that one was done, Victor Oladipo and the Pacers dusted the Cavaliers in the most surprising result of the first round so far, and the Thunder took care of the Jazz behind a big night from Paul George.

CLEVELAND (AP) - LeBron James figured he had experienced everything in 12 postseasons. IN was swept by Cleveland in last year's opening round.

Victor Oladipo scored a game-high 32 points to power the Indiana Pacers over the host Cavaliers 98-80 on Sunday in the opening game of their first-round National Basketball Association playoff series.

"We've been playing like this all year", Oladipo said. The starters will be motivated and will have great games the next time they play the Pacers.

James, seeking his ninth career trip to the NBA Finals and fourth league title, had not dropped a first-round playoff game since the New York Knicks beat Miami in the fourth game of the 2012 opening round, a minor setback on the Heat's title run, a career first for James.

IN were in control from the outset, opening a 21-point lead in the first quarter and leading by 23 in the third.

"I have no idea", Oladipo answered when asked what he thought onlookers would now be saying about his team. "I'm not anxious what we showed (people)". It also gave Pacers head coach Nate McMillan a good time to remind everyone, including Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, that they are being led by Victor Oladipo.


LeBron James' triple double was in vain for the Cavaliers after he finished with 24 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds.

JR Smith (15 points) and Larry Nance (10 points and five rebounds) provided their best arguments for replacing Rodney Hood (nine points) and Jeff Green (zero points) in the starting lineup.

Russell Westbrook had 29 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists, and Carmelo Anthony added 15 points for the Thunder Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell had 27 points and 10 rebounds, but he left in the second half with left foot soreness.

Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James flicks out a pass against the Indiana Pacers' Bojan Bogdanovic.

The Boston Celtics almost fell victim to another Eastern Conference opening upset bid before edging visiting Milwaukee 113-107 in overtime. Jaylen Brown finished with 20 points. "We'll make some adjustments and be a lot better". Offensively, we didn't make shots. "We just find a way".

It did not take long for Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis to prove their worth, however, especially Oladipo, who averaged 23.1 points, 4.2 assists, and 5.2 rebounds per game in the regular season. "We got a couple of steals early, which we didn't convert on, but for the most part, defensively, we were pretty good". We made a substitution and we was able to get it back. We have to work on that. But the Cavs' A game is still better than that of any team in the East, which will become obvious over the course of a seven-game series no matter which team they take on between now and June. He was 0-for-7 shooting and grabbled only four rebounds while playing 26:31.

It's the continuation of a first-round Eastern Conference playoff matchup between a pair of Central Division rivals.
