LeBron James isn’t used to failure in the first round of the playoffs, but that’s what he finds himself facing after Sunday’s surprising Game 1 98-80 loss at home to the Indiana Pacers.

It’s the first time the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar has suffered defeat in a postseason opener, and also marks his first Round 1 loss in six years, ending his streak at 21 straight wins and bumping his overall record to 48-8. He’s not worried, though, since he’s faced far greater challenges and beaten far longer odds.

“I’ve always stayed even-keeled with the postseason,” the four-time MVP told reporters postgame. “I’m down 0-1 in the first round. I was down 3-1 in the Finals. I’m the last guy to ask about how you’re gonna feel the next couple of days.”
