Indiana, which never had been swept in a seven-game series, took a 102-100 lead on Thaddeus Young's tip-in with 1:31 to play, but the Cavaliers scored the game's final six points to advance to the second round of the Eastern Conference.
They did it behind four-time league MVP, three-time National Basketball Association champion and seven-time Finals participant LeBron James, who was sensational in finishing with 41 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists for his 17th career playoff triple-double, and bench players Deron Williams, Channing Frye, Kyle Korver and Iman Shumpert.
Kyrie Irving added 28 points, Deron Williams scored 14 and Kevin Love had five points and 16 rebounds.
I'm starting to think the problem with this Pacers team is deeper and that Paul George is continuously played wrong. "Ultimately, he is who I'm always going to have to see and face".
After rallying from a 13-point fourth-quarter deficit to take a 102-100 lead with 91 seconds remaining, the Pacers would not score again, while James hit a cold-blooded 3-pointer with the shot-clock expiring to put the Cavs back in front for good.
Indiana's effort was led by Lance Stephenson, who scored 22 points coming off the bench. That series is even at two games apiece.
George's 3-pointer missed off the backboard, and James grabbed the rebound and was fouled. In Game 1, the Pacers had the opportunity to make a go-ahead basket with eight seconds remaining. They finished leading the Pacers, 88-77.

Joe Johnson inspired the Jazz with 28 points in game four. It looked as though that trend would continue on into the fourth, with the Cavs extending their lead to 13, just as LeBron James drained a free throw t0 finish a three-point play.
Using a player's field-goal percentage in both the last five minutes of regulation and in overtime for the 2016-17 season as a gauge, James comes out on top, hitting 53.7 percent of his shot attempts.
James' teams are now 12-0 in the first round, and he hasn't lost a first-round game since 2012.
It's nearly like playing Lance Stephenson and Glenn Robinson III more minutes (43 minutes combined) in place of Monta Ellis (5:30) allowed Indiana's defense to be better.
The victory today assured the Cavaliers a full week's rest before either facing the young and powerful Milwaukee Bucks or the familiar Toronto Raptors - the same Raptors who the Cavaliers beat a year ago in the playoffs 4-2. It happened again on Sunday - the Thunder were outscored 13-4 in a stretch that lasted from late in the third quarter to early in the fourth.
