The Cleveland Cavaliers have stormed into a 2-0 lead over the Indiana Pacers as they look to retain their NBA Championship title.

The Cav's "Big 3" of Lebron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love starred, bagging 89 points between them to ease to a 117-111 win over the Indiana Pacers.

James has a history with the Pacers from his time at the Miami Heat when the two regularly clashed in the Eastern Conference finals and he contributed 25 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists to Monday's effort.

Speaking to the media afterwards, James said: "We're right there, we're right there of what we know we can become, and we'll figure it out. So, like I told you, I'd much rather have an 18-point lead than not have a lead at all.

"And we make plays down the stretch to win a ball game in the postseason, and that's all you can ask for. But we're right there on turning the switch on what we really can become," he added. 

Game 3 takes place this Thursday.
