INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — How did Jeff Green feel about his terrible Game 1 performance, a night in which he scored zero points and missed all seven of his shot attempts in an 18-point loss against the Indiana Pacers?

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — Kevin Love is going to take more than eight shots and LeBron James is going to shoot before there is 1:24 left in the first quarter.

The Cavaliers will look to even up their First Round series against the Indiana Pacers in Game 2 on Wednesday night. Tipoff from Quicken Loans Arena is at 7:00 p.m. (ET).

Heading into Wednesday night’s matchup with Indy, it’s good to know that the Wine & Gold are still on the right side of history when playing in Game Twos. In fact, the Cavs are 14-3 since 2009 in the second contest of any series (23-19 record all-time).

Another fact that will perk up Cavs fans is that when trailing 0-1 in any series, the Cavs have gone on to win four of those in their postseason history (1976 Semifinals vs. WAS, 2007 ECF vs. DET, 2015 Semifinals vs. CHI & 2016 Finals vs. GSW). – CLICK HERE to read full story.
