ESPN Stats and Information

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.

It should not come as a surprise that Alabama leads the list of national title contenders heading into the 2017 college football season. However, some of the teams that are right on their tail may come as more of a surprise.
