ESPN Stats and Information  

ESPN's BPI projects the Pacers with a 52 percent chance to win Game 4 at home and avoid the series sweep. LeBron James has won 20 consecutive first-round games; tied for the longest such streak since the playoffs expanded to 16 teams in 1984.

The NBA fined Rajon Rondo $25,000 for his attempted trip of Jae Crowder in Friday's Game 3. Rondo had suggested he was simply trying to stretch his leg.

Nate McMillan: "Since I've been here (in Indiana), LeBron (James) has been in the way of this franchise getting to the Finals." He said he appealed to Jeff Teague's pride leading up to Game 4, bringing up how James swept Teague in Atlanta and now has a chance to sweep him in Indiana too.

LeBron James has some history on the line today. With a win he will pass Tim Duncan for most playoff sweeps in a career all-time with 10. He will also pass Magic Johnson, Michael Cooper and James Worthy for most consecutive first round playoff wins with 21 (since 1984). Also, he's averaging 32.7 points, 10.7 assists and 9.7 rebounds in the playoffs against IND thus far, putting him in range to join Johnson and Jason Kidd as the only players in the last 30 years to average a triple-double in a playoff series.

Watching Kawhi last night reminds why NBA has had renaissance. Most of league's stars conduct their business right way. LBJ, KD, Steph, etc.

The ViewFromVegas is they were -210 on the money line and also covered against the closing spread of -5 (though early Portland backers pushed on +6). The game went over the closing total of 218 on Steph Curry's 3-pointer with 49 seconds left.
