Not enough balls to go around. I'm going to leave it alone because this is the playoffs thread, but I wish the Melo haters would stop judging Melo to a different standard than other stars around the league. Melo found out like DRose that unless you win you win multiple chips, playing hoops in your hometown is a thankless job.
    Lets see .. how many star-players Melo chased out of town .. Miller, Camby, Iverson, Billups, Kidd, Chandler, plus making several players (Kenyon Martin n Amare) claim season injuries so not to play alongside Melo.

    Cavaliers hold off late Pacers rally to win Game 2 .. Lebron take 2-0 series lead.
    Kyrie Irving scores 37 pts ....
    Pacers backcourt are missing George Hill .. Ellis was a no-show tonite

    Cavs won but they have developed a habit of letting teams back in late in the games, someone is going to take advantage of that in the playoffs sometime. A Cavs team that gets knocked off in the EC playoffs may want to trade for Melo though I think Griffin would be looking for a big man and not Melo.

    The Cleveland Cavaliers narrowly escaped the Indiana Pacers in Game 1 of the playoffs, pulling off a 109-108 win when the Pacers missed a shot at the buzzer to win it.

    With just seconds remaining, Paul George passed to C.J. Miles when LeBron James doubled him at the top of the key. Miles, the open man, attempted a fade-away jumper at the buzzer that missed.

    After the game, George chided the decision, saying, "I talked to CJ about it. In situations like that, I gotta get the last shot. I was asking for it. CJ took it upon himself." George said he trusts Miles but would prefer to take the shot himself.

    LeBron James, however, had a great response to George's criticism, saying George made the right play and he should live with the result.


    "I can only speak for myself. When you're doubling me, I'm giving it up. That's me. I don't know how everybody else feels about that, but if you get a double, I think we all know math in here: There's two guys on the ball, and that means there's a 4-on-3. You have your numbers. So if you're the best player on the floor, that doesn't mean you have to take the shot. I think he made the right play, and you live with the results."

    George certainly made the right decision by passing to Miles, but criticizing Miles for not giving the ball back certainly won't inspire faith in the Pacers locker room. James, who has been wrongly criticized in the past for passing the ball to the open man on game-deciding shots, certainly understands that putting trust in teammates and living with the results is sometimes the best way to operate.

    BTW.... Paul George is 0-15 when taking a go ahead shot with less than 20 seconds left. I believe Chauncey Billups mentioned this on espn.

    Bad move by him publicly but I actually agree with PG13 only with the exception of how locked in offensively he's been the past month and particularly the last 4gms against the Cavs. He should've kept this in house and it's not like he's a selfish basketball player/teammate. He gave the ball up with 5sec remaining...if Miles immediately passes it back give to get fashion PG13 had enough time to catch and redirect dribble back to his right and pull up for a shot. Would he make it, well who knows and statistically speaking he hasn't been good in those situations but he's been clutch against Cleveland as of recent.

    The Pacers came back and played the Cavs tough in Game 2, doesn't appear to be any issues with their competitive fire/faith in beating them. Really PG13 has been on a incredible playoff output past 2yrs, might be a good idea to see how heroic he can be if I'm a Pacer. With that said DO NOT PLAY GAMES DOWN TO A FINAL POSSESSION TO DETERMINE OUTCOME!!!

    I've been saying this for yrs

    I'm warming up to them representing the West due to the Kawhi factor and history of being able to MOP UP Lebron should they both meet again.

    $25,000 is probably gonna Fizzdale, he's only asking for a sweep. I get what he's trying to do but it will NEVER work. The rant was rich though

    Got to get past the Dubs before they get to the Cavs who might not even be there if they don't clean up their 4th qtr act.

    Best thing that could happen for the league is if the Spurs make it to the finals over the Warriors but that's an awful tall order for them.

    Paul George did the right thing, and the quick double-team on Miles gave him only one option, shoot!

    Now Melo, dribbling the clock down being double-team then triple team then throwing the ball to Jefferies on the perimeter with 3 seconds left in Melo's first playoff game as a Knicks in 2011 .. need answers.
