"I went out being aggressive, putting my teammates into position to be successful, offensively and defensively", James said.

The Pacers sure didn't make it easy, though.

The four-time MVP finished with 33 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, four steals and two blocks. The sweep was the 10th of his career, the most all time, edging Tim Duncan's nine.

And by holding on for the win, James improved to 52-0 in the playoffs when his team takes a double-digit lead into the fourth quarter.

WASHINGTON-LeBron James scored 33 points on Sunday as he helped the Cleveland Cavaliers enjoy a series-clinching 106-102 win over the Indiana Pacers, moving into the playoff second round.

If you thought Johnson would give the Jazz this type of production, you're lying or you're Quin Snyder and if you're Quin Snyder, these are things you just have to say as a head coach even though you might not believe it. He then pointed to a very specific example, reciting a random play from the game as if he had just watched it again.

The situation is the same with the Toronto Raptors against the Milwaukee Bucks, in which the Bucks are now expected to grind out a seven-game series win.

The Pacers lost the first game by one and blew a 20-point lead in Game 3. If George earns an All-NBA team selection from the media, he'll be eligible for a massive pay raise and contract extension worth more than $200 million - around $70 million more than he could earn if he doesn't get the nod from the media vote.

"It was definitely frustrating coming over and then losing", Williams said.

OKLAHOMA CITY - Nene tied an National Basketball Association playoff record by shooting 12-for-12 from the floor, and his 28 points off the bench led Houston over Oklahoma City as the Rockets took a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference first-round series.

While Harden was five-of-16 from the field for 16 points, Nene led the high-flying Rockets on the road.

Kyrie Irving and Deron Williams also notched double figures for the Cavaliers, scoring 28 and 14, respectively.

Over in the Eastern Conference, Isaiah Thomas is playing with a heavy heart due to the recent death of his sister but he still managed to score 33 points as the Boston Celtics beat the Chicago Bulls 104-95.

Gerald Green registered 18 points, while Al Horford contributed 15 points and 12 rebounds as the Celtics return to Boston on Wednesday looking to take a series lead for the first time.

Entering Game 4, Cleveland had beaten IN six consecutive times, scoring at least 109 points IN each of those six victories, which includes three regular-season games.

All of the Cavs' multiple personalities - from the ugly to the bad to the good to the great to the phenomenal - were on display Thursday night in a record-setting 119-114 Game 3 victory over the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Golden State can sweep with a victory Monday night. His last loss in a first-round game was May 6, 2012 to the New York Knicks, when he played for the Miami Heat.

By the end of the day, both the Bulls-Celtics and Jazz-Clippers series would be tied at two games apiece, while the Rockets opened up a 3-1 series lead.

Game 5 is Tuesday in Houston.
