The Cleveland Cavaliers traveled to Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Friday on a two-game skid, having lost both contests by 28-plus points.
However, the Indiana Pacers were the ones lacking energy on the court. LeBron James started the game with a spring in his step, throwing down two big-time dunks—one without much resistance in the open lane.
James' vigor and power at the rim set an early tone. The Pacers trailed 42-24 with 8:04 remaining in the second quarter.
