CLEVELAND (AP) - The situation was dire, requiring playoff dominance.

The Cavaliers coach has challenged the rest of his team to step up after LeBron James single-handedly evened the series against the Pacers by leading Cleveland to a 100-97 win in Game 2 on Wednesday.

He scored the first 13 points of the game, and the first 16 points for the Cavaliers.

"What I told those guys is, just your first playoff experience, just play hard and compete", Lue said before Game 1.

"'Flipping the switch' is just another word for you have one team that you're focusing on, so you can really zero in on that team", said Kobe.

And once I started talking about it, once we were on air, actually my emotions kind of took over.

"Ty Lue says that Kevin Love is good to play in Game 3".

Mitchell scored a game-high 28 points, while Favors added 20 points.

After having what was a 'sub-par' night for his standards in their Game 1 loss, James took matters into his own hands in Game 2, where he absolutely shot the lights out in the first quarter.

"We blew a coverage and we were lucky and I'd rather be on time, on target than to be lucky", James said.

The next two games are in Indianapolis, where the Cavs always seem to have trouble, and where the Pacers were 27-14 in the regular season.

But James was his unstoppable self again, and there wasn't a whole lot the Pacers could do about him in the first half. Green failed to dent within the opener mainly because Korver dealt with a sore right foot and Hood begun.

While the changes weren't that surprising, Oladipo leaving after 62 seconds was stunning. Even though LeBron had one of the best playoff games of his career, there was a clear path to a win for Indiana. But instead of messing around, Oladipo drove directly to the basket and James wasn't able to keep up. He had 12 points (four 3-pointers), but made numerous hustle plays, like hustling back on defense after a missed 3-pointer in the corner to draw a charge on Lance Stevenson.

Already down 0-1 to the Pacers in the first round, Cleveland finds itself in yet another adverse position, but if any team knows how to respond to adversity, it's the Cavs. He immediately went to the bench with 3 minutes, 43 seconds left in the game. "But throw some ice on it, tape it up and be ready to go".
