DENVER - LeBron James sat at one end of the court, listening to music. On the other end, about as far away from James as possible, Kyrie Irving leaned back in his seat.Quite a distance between the Cleveland Cavaliers teammates.Means we hate each other, Irving said Friday after the morning shootaround, hours before tipoff against Denver. He was only joking, of course.James shot down reports that he and his point guard got into a heated disagreement after the Portland game on Tuesday.We have not had a verbal exchange, said James, whose team has dropped two straight road games. But I understand that negativity sells. No one wants to hear a good story. Those reports are not true. Theyre very false.Irving had some fun with their reported rift. He good-naturedly said the dispute with James was actually over which show is better: Survivors Remorse or Family Guy. Irving is a big fan of the animated series.Hes going to feel strong about Survivors Remorse, because its his show. I love Family Guy, Irving said. Heated exchange. Words were said. No blows this time.Unlike James, Irving has never really been through anything like this, where all eyes are constantly on him.We attract a lot of hoopla. Always something to blame, Irving said. The only thing that matters is whats going on within our locker room. Thats the only thing that matters.And fine-tuning on his on-court chemistry with James.Were two dynamic players and its coming along well, I believe, James said. Its going to continue to get better and better. Its just four games. Its our first time playing together. Every game is going to be a learned experience for both of us. Its not just me and Kyrie. Its myself and the rest of the guys, and Kyrie and the rest of the guys as well.To calm some of the angst over their sluggish start, James posted a message on his Twitter page Thursday: In the words of the great @AaronRodgers12 RELAX.James said that wasnt directed at anyone in particular, simply, how I was feeling at the time.Just a message for everyone to understand how important the process is, James added. Everyone wants overnight success. It just doesnt happen in team sports, when teams first come together.Two nights ago, Irving had 34 points in a last-second loss in Utah. He also had no assists, a stat hes well aware of, too.Its not like I wasnt passing the ball, Irving said. For me, its about finding ways to get guys the ball in right spots. Im going to do anything possible to win a ball game. I have the confidence from my teammates to go do that.In training camp, James intimated that if he had to challenge players, he wouldnt shy away. But he said he hasnt reached that point yet.Too early, James said. For our team to be as good as we want to be, we cant worry about whats going on on the outside. We have to control our own destiny and play hard and get a win.We cant shortcut the process along the way. Wholesale Air Jordan . -- Olympic medallist Jennifer Abel of Laval, Que.

All over the court, over and over again. George had 27 points, 10 rebounds and six assists, and the Pacers used a big second-half run to rally for a 101-85 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series. George Hill scored each of his 15 points in the second half, helping top-seeded Indiana earn a split of the first two post-season games at home. George also had four steals and blocked a shot while helping keep Hawks point guard Jeff Teague in check. "Thats why he was in the MVP conversation early," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. "He always does those types of things, guarding the best perimeter player, rebounding the ball, deflecting the ball. His hands were all over the place. It makes him one of the most complete players in the game when he plays like he did tonight."" The Pacers sure needed it. For seven weeks, Indiana heard everyone question its fortitude, team chemistry, even whether it was worthy of a No. 1 seed. The complaints grew louder after Saturdays 101-93 loss. George and his teammates spent the next 72 hours seeking solutions and defiantly insisting they would be OK. On Tuesday, they finally reverted to their early season from. Indiana limited the Hawks to 33 second-half points and dominated the third quarter. Next up is Game 3 on Thursday in Atlanta, where the Pacers have only two wins since December 2006 -- though one of those closed out last years first-round playoff series in six games. "We want to build on what weve got going," Indiana forward David West said. "We want to continue to be aggressive. We know theyre going to play better at home, but were going down there to get back in charge of this series." George was 9 for 16 from the field, including a 5-for-7 performance from 3-point range. He also went 4 for 4 at the line. Perhaps more importantly, he managed to contain Teague affter he burned Indiana for 28 points in Game 1.dddddddddddd George wanted the responsibility of guarding Teague, who had seven points in the first quarter and seven more for the rest of the game. "I sat down and it was homework for me, just locking into his tendencies and figuring out where I will get beat or where Im vulnerable against him," George said. "Its a challenge." George was the catalyst, but he had plenty of help. Hill, who had been mired in an offensive funk, made 5 of 6 shots in the second half. Luis Scola, who kept the Pacers close when West got into early foul trouble, finished with 20 points and seven rebounds. The defence that gave up 11 3-pointers in Game 1 and eight more in the first half of Game 2, allowed just two over the final 24 minutes. "Our execution on both ends of the court wasnt at the level we need it to be," Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. "Give them credit, they were aggressive, they made a lot of plays and our execution, particularly in the third quarter has to be better. Thats what well work on." Indiana appeared to be in trouble when it trailed 38-27 in the second quarter and was still down 52-48 at halftime. But the Pacers stormed into the lead with a 31-13 third quarter. West sparked a 25-2 run with a bank shot that made it 70-65 with 3:20 left in the third. George made a buzzer-beating 3 to make it 79-65 heading into the fourth, and the Pacers scored the first eight points of the final period. "If thats what it took for everyone to understand how close this team is, thats what it was," George said. "Weve got each others back and thats what it felt like." NOTES: Atlanta was trying to open a playoff series with two straight road wins for the first time since the St. Louis Hawks swept Baltimore 3-0 in the 1966 Western Division semifinals. ... Defending Indianapolis 500 champion Tony Kanaan attended the game. ... Atlanta outscored Indiana 30-16 in the third quarter Saturday. ' ' '
