CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Indiana Pacers 119-114 on Thursday. The Cavs have taken a 3-0 lead on the Pacers in the first round of the 2017 NBA playoffs.

LeBron James has a long list of playoff highlight reels. Add this game to the list. In a performance fit for a king, James carried the Cavaliers to a 3-0 lead. Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love did not play a minute in the fourth quarter.

They weren't hurt. They weren't in a slump. They just weren't needed.

James and the bench bunch were unstoppable, with LeBron as the trigger-man of the offense. He finished with 41 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists. If he wasn't making a lay up or a three-pointer, he was dishing to Channing Frye or Kyle Korver for a three.

The Pacers were up by 26 points in the third quarter. When the fourth quarter was over they were down 3-0 in the series. James played 45 minutes on the night, that's a lot, but the Cavaliers will be off till Game 4 on Sunday when they will play for a sweep.
