Pacers beat the Cavs again in another thriller

14 Января 2018

They concluded their four-game homestand with a 3-1 record and will begin a five-game Western Conference road trip on Sunday when they face the Phoenix Suns. Even at five turnovers a game, his 26 points, 12.5 rebounds, five assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.6 blocks per game while shooting 48/36/75 is fantastic.

The Pacers are fourth in the NBA's Central Division at 22-20, but just four games behind the first-place Cavaliers. As a result, IN faced a 24-6 deficit with 4:48 remaining IN the first quarter.

Over the last few weeks we've heard whispers that the Cavs were interested in DeAndre Jordan and could dangle Tristan Thompson in the right deal.

James and Irving, of course, share a storied history, dating back to their three seasons as teammates in Cleveland and Irving's bitter departure from the Cavs this past offseason.

Oladipo made the free throw to extend Indiana's lead to 84-82.

We give a lot of grief, usually deserved, to officials across all sports when they screw up.

While murky in its meaning, Lue's "agenda" comment may light a fire under some Cavs' players. But then a 16-2 run by the Pacers gave IN the lead heading into the final period. Cleveland never led, and, thanks in large part to a 35-point third quarter, the Raptors took a commanding 25 point lead into half.

However, Cleveland lacked defensive pressure against an opponent that was playing without two starters in Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka.

Asked about the team's defense by a reporter, LeBron James snapped saying the reporter didn't look like he could play defense, either. He got another chance with a desperation three-pointer as time expired, but missed.

"I should have known, it's not the guy who tells the joke that gets caught it's the guy who laughs", James said. It was about toughness; the next guy stepping up, doing a little bit more and besting whatever version of the Cavaliers came their way.

Early on, it seemed like Cleveland would walk all over the Pacers, getting a bit of revenge for their 0-2 start against IN to start the year.

Darren Collison led the way for the Pacers with 22 points, and Oladipo wasn't far behind with 19 despite a less-than-desirable 8-of-21 shooting clip.

The Cavs are reluctant to do that not knowing LeBron James' plans for next season.

"When Steph is on the floor, everything's chaotic in a good way", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said after the game Friday. Lance continued to pester LeBron throughout the night until he just finally had enough.

However, James is a family man, and he has said that that will influence his decision. "I know what I need to do, just play and be myself".
