NBA Twitter reacts to Victor Oladipo, Pacers defeating LeBron James

Following Sunday afternoon’s Game 1 victory by Victor Oladipo and the Indiana Pacers over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, the NBA world is finally viewing the Pacers as a team to be reckoned with.

After mocking the Pacers following the trade of Paul George, many fans finally got their first look at the Pacers on Sunday. Indiana played just one nationally televised game throughout the course of the regular season. That may shock some people who just watched the Pacers dismantle the Cavaliers 98-80.

Indiana has played the role of underdog all season long. They have embraced that role and are continuing to do so even after making a statement in Game 1 against Cleveland.

NBA Twitter couldn’t be more excited to watch this series moving forward. Oladipo and the Pacers have been very popular over the past 24 hours. Here are some of the best reactions to Oladipo and the Pacers on Twitter following Game 1.

Those are just a few of the reactions from Game 1. If the Pacers can steal Game 2, the Cavaliers will be in a world of trouble. Even if the Pacers don’t end up winning this series, they are proving that they are going to be a team to be reckoned with for years to come.

Indiana will take on Cleveland Game 2 on Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. ET on TNT.
