Indiana wins in Cleveland (80-98)

Dirty party for Cleveland. The Cavaliers, who have played in the last three NBA finals, were surprised in their play by Indiana (80-98), who takes the lead in this series of the first round of the Eastern Conference play-offs. Cleveland ran after the score all match and, despite a late awakening in the third quarter, never managed to catch up. With 32 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists, Victor Oladipo was the great success of the Pacers, eliminated 4-0 by the Cavaliers last year in the first round of play-offs. Myles Turner (16 pts, 8 rebounds) and Bojan Bogdanovic (15 pts, 6 rebounds) also held their rank. Despite LeBron James’ new triple-double with 24 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists, or Kevin Love’s 17 rebounds, Cleveland showed a worrisome friability in defense and a chronic fumbling in three-pointer (only 8 baskets scored in 34 attempts). The Cavaliers will react from Match 2, played Wednesday in front of their audience.
