This isn’t how LeBron James wanted to compile another achievement.
And while James has certainly had better games than the one in Cavaliers’ 98-80 stunner of a home loss to the Indiana Pacers in Game 1 of their first-round series Sunday, he did compile his 20th double-double of the postseason.
The final numbers? Well, you can see them below, courtesy of the FOX Sports Ohio graphics team.

As you can see, LeBron struggled his way to a 7-of-17 shooting night. But he certainly wasn’t alone. The Cavs’ problems from the field were truly a team-wide effort.
“We gotta make shots,” James said. “We were 8-of-34 from three and 12-of-20 from the free-throw line. … We all have to be better and dig deep.”
Game 2 is Wednesday at 7 p.m. in Cleveland.
