LeBron James was in a beast mode at the weekend as his 45 points led the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 105-101 win over the Indiana Pacers and into the second round of the NBA play-offs.
The Cavaliers were on course for a first time elimination in the first round but James produced his third 40-point game of the series as Cleveland wrapped up the best-of-seven Eastern Conference series 4-3.
The 33-year old who has won three NBA championships finished the first half with 26 points, five assists and four rebounds.
The Cavaliers will next face the Toronto Raptors in round 2 of the playoffs.
