After Dwyane Wade went to plaid and saved the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their series agains the Philadelphia 76ers, Todd Whitehead helped us visualize the frequency with which "Vintage Dwyane Wade" has been showing up over the past few years.
"I just felt in a good rhythm and tried to stay in that zone as long as I could", said James.
"We just have to be aggressive", Westbrook said.
James finished the first quarter with a game-high 20 points, six rebounds and three assists. While only Shaq starter to answer (with 6), Kenny Smith pointed out the Pacers have "certain advantages" against the Cavaliers. However, the extended bench doesn't reach Thompson, with his only appearance coming in two garbage minutes in the 98-80 Game 1 loss.
IN was over 95-92 and straight back in the 18-point deficit on Wednesday although Oladipo, that scored 32 at the opener, finally came loose but overlooked his greatest shooter in 2 games.

Italian qualifier Andreas Seppi came from a set down to beat Guillermo Garcia-Lopez and progress to a tie with Nishikori. Zverev took control of the second set after Muller dropped his opening serve and then broke him again to clinch it.
"We blew a coverage and we were lucky and I'd rather be on time, on target than to be lucky", James said. My effort on offense, it'll come.
In the playoffs, LeBron needs to "LeBron" even more than in the regular season. If they can take care of business at home, James and the three-time defending Eastern Conference champions will get an early exit from the 2018 playoffs. So the postseason finally hit us and it hit us very well. "It's a contact sport, and guys have to understand and realize that".
Oladipo's style on both ends of the floor opens up so many things for the Pacers as a whole, but first, let's look at one of the things he can do himself. He had a plus-minus of plus-15 in 31 minutes.
"We just wanted him to set the tone and he did that by getting to the basket early".
Reacting to James' incredible showing, Cavs power forward Larry Nance Jr. said that "it's hard to get surprised anymore" by such games from LeBron, but he just could not help himself but get astounded from the absurdity of what his superstar teammate just did on the basketball court.
IN is outscoring Cleveland 33-18 in the series on fast breaks, and Oladipo is responsible for 19 of those points, more than the Cavs have total. They left Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, with the first-round series now tied.
