LeBron James and Paul George had a battle for the ages on Sunday. The Cleveland Cavaliers and Indiana Pacers had a knock down fight as Lance Stephenson returned to action for his former team.

The game would go to double OT with the Cavaliers pulling out the win, 135-130, as both James and George traded buckets.

The duo also traded dunks -- on each other -- at various points in the game, two of which were particularly notable.

First, George threw down on LeBron during the first quarter:

Then, James came up with a nifty play of his own, yamming all over George:

LeBron would finish with 41 points, 16 rebounds, and 11 assists. George added 43 points, nine rebounds, and nine assists.

Cleveland is still a half game back of the Boston Celtics for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. The two square off on Tuesday night.
