James leads Cavaliers’ record comeback to beat Pacers

LeBron James celebrated another milestone with the greatest second-half comeback in playoff history. James scored 41 points while padding his postseason resume with yet another triple-double, leading defending champion Cleveland back from a 25-point halftime deficit to a 119-114 victory over the Pacers in Indianapolis on Thursday night. The Cavaliers lead the Eastern Conference first-round series 3-0. James also won his 20th consecutive first-round game, matching a feat achieved by three other former Lakers: Mike Conley scored 24 points and handed out eight assists as Memphis snapped a 10-game postseason skid against San Antonio. The host Grizzlies trail 2-1 in the first-round Western Conference series after giving first-year head coach David Fizdale his first postseason victory. Greg Monroe added 16 points and seven rebounds for the Bucks, who held DeMar DeRozan without a basket and did not look back after leading by 20 points after the first quarter. Utah center Rudy Gobert (knee injury) will miss his second straight game when the Jazz play the Clippers in Game 3 of their series Friday. ... Police in Manhattan Beach (Los Angeles County) are investigating an allegation of domestic violence against Utah reserve center Jeff Withey.
