After a season that truly felt different, LeBron James is in uncharted territory.
Down 1-0 in the first round.
The Cavaliers were embarrassed, with boos at times filling Quicken Loans Arena, in a startling 98-80 rout at the Pacers’ hands Sunday. James’ first-round, Game 1 winning streak was snapped at 21.
The fourth-seeded Cavs were thought to have a switch, because James always does, but it didn’t look like that during Game 1, as they were humiliated right from the start, as No. 5 Indiana took a 30-10 lead with about a minute left in the first quarter.
The Cavaliers would make it competitive, but nothing more.

James did not have his best night, but still somehow ended up with a triple-double (7-of-17, 24 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds). Kevin Love was close to a non-factor with nine points, and Jeff Green was dreadful, going 0-for-7 with 0 points.
For the Pacers, Victor Oladipo looked unstoppable, pouring in 32 points on 19 shots.
