For the very first time in his career, LeBron James suffered a defeat in the playoff opener.

The Indiana Pacers were the team to hand James the historic loss on Sunday as they soundly beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-80 in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first round series. Not only was it the first time James had ever lost a postseason opener, but it was the first time he lost a first round game since 2012.

The Cavs had a lot of work to do after the first quarter of play where they found themselves trailing by 19 points. They would chip away at the deficit in the second and third quarters, but they gave almost all of that back in the fourth to Indiana.

Cleveland would shoot just 38.5% in the game and 23.5% from behind the arc. The Pacers would put up 20 of their points from Cavs turnovers who would only get nine of their own off turnovers.

It wasn’t all bad news for James though. He would make a layup during the fourth quarter which notched his career playoff point total to 2189 points, moving him past Michael Jordan for second all time.

The only man left to pass is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who finished with 2356.
